As I am clicking the Purchase button at Expedia today for a trip wayyyy far out in the future (Jan. 2013) I thought about my ridiculous leisure travel schedule over the past two years: 6 different countries and at least 10 separate trips. Apparently if you need a friend to go on vacay with, I'm the one to ask. I'm like Ado Annie, I just can't say no.
Yeah, it gets expensive and definitely puts a damper on my ability to partake in most some happy hours and enjoy expensive wine and shop at J. Crew all the time, but here's why I'm doing this now. First off I have decent PTO at my job thank goodness. Secondly, my friends keep deciding to get married in exotic places (keep it up, friends!). Tertiarily (not really a word but I use it at work all the time to sound ridiculous), my grandparents would say their favorite memories together were when they went traveling the world and learning new cultures. So sweet, right? So if not now, when?!
