I realized that if my wedding won't take place this year, that means my honeymoon won't take place this year. I know I should be saving money for my wedding and I should be saving money because of this crazy economy, but really, does this mean I'm not traveling anywhere this year? That's just so...depressing.
I went to the Budget Travel web site and read this: "If you really want to save in 2009—and help to revive a sagging domestic economy—travel within the United States." Perhaps it's a year for staying local? It's always been a dream of mine to visit all 50 United States, which made me curious how many states I have actually been to before.
So I made a list. This list does not account for any states that I simply drove through or had an airport layover. I needed to have spent at least one day there. Here it is:
Delaware: (drove through, doesn't count)
District of Columbia
Maine: (drove through, doesn't count)
Rhode Island: (drove through, doesn't count)
23 states so far. Not bad, right?
I have some ideas where I want to go, but if you were me, where would you go next?
(Remember: Dan will be more apt to come if the place has 1. record stores 2. Cracker concerts 3. gambling opportunities 4. reasonable excuse to go (like, if he came up with the idea).
Whatever, we can convince Dan later. Give me inspiration.
