This is a picture of a beach in Oregon.

Even as a child I loved traveling and experiencing new places. It wouldn't matter if it was to the mall or a nearby beach because it was something new and exciting. Now that I am older I can really research and plan somewhere that excites me. Having a goal to save up for is one of the easiest and most satisfying things in the world.

In the short amount of time I have been able to travel on my own I have made the most of it. Whether it be locally in Texas or internationally, I find satisfaction in either. Being able to experience new cultures and places is even easier nowadays with services such as VRBO. It truly is immersing to live among the locals and get a taste of how they live for a bit.

It the future I have a lot of trips planned. I have a trip penned for late February to New Orleans to celebrate Mardi Gras. I also have a tripped planned this summer to the Oregon Coast. We plan on taking 7 friends to backpack 40 miles over five days.
