Saturday Selects #25: On Travel

Saturday Selects is a series of posts I write on the first Saturday of each month (usually) about something outside the general bookish theme of the blog. Today’s topic: travel.

Some of you know my first real trip is coming up. It’s next month and I’m going to Washington DC for four days. I’ve been in Houston my whole life and I’m ready to start seeing the world. That sounds like such a cliché, but there’s so much out there I hope to see.

Well I’m still six weeks away from my trip (planned four months ago) and I find myself thinking of other places to visit in the US. Is this normal or am I suffering from an incurable ailment destined to ruin the rest of my years!? I’m even looking at dates! Uh oh.

For the record, I don’t spend money. I have a little bit saved up that’s causing all this. I can’t imagine what I’d be doing if I had a higher paying job. I’d probably lose my job after deciding to ditch work for a quick trip 1 too many times. Welp.

The two places I see myself visiting next are Austin and the Grand Canyon. Most likely in that order.

Tell me your best travel stories! And if you can remember your first trip, tell me about that too!

PS: I have a few comments to reply to. I intend to get to all of them today.
