Where I've Been in 2013

I can't believe there are just two days left of the year. I don't feel like it'll be 2014 on Wednesday. It's like time is moving faster than I can get ready for it. But regardless if I'm ready, the new year is coming, and with it will come many new adventures and milestones and moments I'll not soon forget. But I don't want to welcome the future until I've properly bid farewell to the past. 

2013 has been one for the books. It's been full of memories - good and bad, happy and sad - and I've been to places I never expected to go so soon after Germany. After studying abroad I really got bit hard by the travel bug, and I've tried to indulge my lust for new places as much as I can. However, I'm broke, so most of my adventuring hasn't been too far from home. But as much as I've been exploring my corner of the globe, I've also managed to venture farther away a couple times, too.

This year I have:
- been to four different states. And if this was Europe that would be like four countries.
- checked off six new places in my book, "1000 Places To See Before You Die."
- reached the summit of a giant rock that bares the world's largest bas-relief.
- stood at the southernmost point of the continental United States.
- enjoyed climbing to the top of lighthouses.
- explored one of the most beautiful cities in the country.

I'd say that's not too bad for a broke college student.


I love traveling, and my goal is to have this blog be a full-time travel blog filled with my adventures around the world. I can only hope that each year will bring me more experiences and that I'll be able to share those experiences with all of you. So thank you 2013, and here's to 2014 and whatever it has to offer!
