I don’t know if it’s just because summer is coming up and I’m reminiscing about my past summer trips, but I am dying to go somewhere awesome. Let’s face it: I’ve been super spoiled these last two summers.
So you can see why I have the travel bug. And also why I still have dreams about my amazing adventures and wish I could go somewhere equally awesome this summer. However, it’s looking like my summer is going to be full of work, trying to save money to pay off these fantastic trips. So I’ve started making a summer itinerary in my mind. This is what it looks like:
Stop 1: California
A quick stop at Disneyland (obviously) and some time at the beach.
I’d have to go to Santa Barbara. I mean, how could I not when the office of my two favorite people is right on the beach?
Can’t you just hear the Psych transition music now?
With a drive up to San Francisco just for fun.
Stop 2: Canada
I’m not going to lie–I mostly want to visit Canada to see if I can get a glimpse of these people.
I mean, not that Canada’s not cool in its own rite…I just really want to go to Vancouver and see them, ya know what I mean?
Stop 3: East Coast
Remember how we were talking about me being spoiled? Visiting big cities in the last year (with a special mention of the Spontaneous New York Extravaganza of 2011) has made me want to experience city life on the East Coast.

So I am going to make some stops in
with another trip to New York, but with less whirlwind speed than last time.
Stop 4: Mexico City
Tenery’s parents are moving to Mexico City next for their assignment with the Church. Why not take a stop to visit them in the most populated city in North America?
Stop 5: Argentina.
My dad served his mission in Buenos Aires, and I have always wanted to go there. My spontaneous summer trip seems like a perfect opportunity to visit the southern hemisphere and practicar mi español.
Stop 6: UK
I had to decide between the Spain study abroad and the English Literature option last summer. While I don’t have any regrets about choosing Spain, why not take a hop across the pond as well?
Ireland counts as part of the UK, right? Besides, this is my travel fantasy, so I can do whatevertheheck I want!
Stop 7: Germany
While my little group was off galavanting across Italy and Paris, there were some other students from our study abroad that went to Germany. Sure, I was in Paris having a picnic on the lawn in front of the Eiffel Tower, but their pictures made me totally jealous.
Whoa…how did this one get in here??
I feel like this trip should also include a stop in the Austrian mountains, if you know what I mean.
Yes, that would be me.
Although there are several more places I’m dying to see, it would be about this point in time I would be ready for my final and favorite stop:
Being home with these crazies. Luckily, in the midst of all my dream vacations, this is the stop I will be able to make. It should be a great summer 🙂
