So far in this Journey January, I've taken a trip to Hawaii and managed not to die via ballistic missile. That's a lifetime worth of excitement for someone boring like me, but it was enough to inspire me to live a little more. Here's an update on where I'm at with my goals and homework.
2018 JOURNEY GOALS
☐ Take a trip out of the country
This is a major goal for this year. My passport expired this year without ever being used. How sad is that?
One very viable option is taking our tiny camper up to Vancouver, BC. It's easily drivable and we can take our puppies with us.
I'm also keeping an eye out for cheap flights to an international destination by subscribing to Scott's Cheap Flights, an e-newsletter that sends out discount and mistake fares. I get anywhere from 1-5 emails a day for great deals. This is how we ended up finding our flights to Hawaii. I'm seriously considering subscribing to the premium version because the $39 fee could easily be recouped from one flight alone. We'll see.
☐ Take a trip with my girlfriends
I'm flying out to visit a girlfriend for a surprise weekend, but I'd still like to figure out a way to get together with my besties for a fun trip.
I would love to plan a bigger trip, but with budgets, schedules, and babies this might be a toughie.
