I’m always planning my next getaway. My Labor Day weekend trip is planned, my birthday is locked and I need to start planning my trip to homecoming and a visit to Tennessee.
It is necessary to spend some days away from reality. Everyone needs a break from work, school and drama. It’s always a great experience being around good company and enjoying a change of scenery.
My parents were not adventurous growing up. Our family vacations were to see other family members in South Carolina or New York. However, I did get my fairytale at Disney World.
Once I started college and mingled with the other students, I realized how behind I was in my travel aspirations. I felt uncultured next to my peers who have spent time in all four corners of the world. On the other hand, I know people who have never flown on a plane, which limits their travel opportunities. I also know people who have never left Tennessee or the Tri-State area.
Now that I am an adult with my own money, I am making it a priority to see this world one city at a time.
