Wandering Through the Wanderlust
I dont think I have traveled more in my life in one year than I have in 2017. It's been pretty insane but also really nice to boost the amount of posts on our travel blog. That being said, I wish some of my trips were not solo, were not for such a long time and were not back to back. I really can't complain though, I've been very blessed this year to have a job that allowed me to work from the road and the flexibility in my life to just get up and go.
Some of my favorite trips this year have been to National Parks, hot air balloon festivals and Utah - of course! I miss my sister and her kids so much. It's hard living far away from family. A 10 hour drive to Utah is long but manageable and I am ever so grateful for friends along the way (Kylee...Brian & Candice...Lindsay...) that have helped with providing me/us a place to crash and help break up the long drive. I also super loved being able to be in Portland again..I have not been since 2015 and the amount of love from people I met there is so incredible, even after all this time. I lived out there 03-05 and while I havent been able to keep in touch with all the people I met, I have been able to keep track of a fair majority and my life would be so different without them in it.
Anyways...tons of trips...tons of going places...I can't wait to see what 2018 has to offer!
