Over the next few weeks I have several different travel activities coming up that I am seriously so excited for and just really wanted to share. The first is going up to New Hampshire with the guy I’m currently dating, Ryan. I saw a picture of this place called Ice Castles in Lincoln, New Hampshire a few weeks ago and was like “OMG I need to go.” So I asked Ryan if he would want to go with me and we decided to make a weekend trip out of it. We are going to head up to Tilton, NH this upcoming Friday night after we both get out of work and plan to go to the Ice Castles on Saturday afternoon, followed by a trip to the Fun Spot in Laconia. The Fun Spot is this huge 3 story arcade that is seriously so much fun. My parents used to take my sister and I when we were younger and I haven’t been back there in a really long time. Ryan is a sucker for arcades so I thought it would be a cool place to take him. Then on Sunday we plan on going skiing on Gunstock Mountain, which isn’t too far away from Tilton before we head back home Sunday afternoon/night.
The next travel activity I have coming up is a trip down to South Carolina. I really wanted to drive down this time but didn’t want to do it myself so I was waiting to book a plane ticket in case I did get the chance to be able to drive down. And that chance arose yesterday when my best friend Renee and I started talking and she just decided right then and there that she’d drive down with me. So our road trip is already going to be crazy I think because we just booked a hotel to stay in Atlantic City on a Wednesday night, will continue driving on Thursday to Raleigh, North Carolina where one of Renee’s best friends from high school now lives and will stay with her for Thursday night before continuing our drive down to Charleston, South Carolina on Friday. We will be staying in Charleston until Sunday, and plan to participate in the Rugged Maniac race on Saturday, March 12th. We plan to start driving back on Sunday and stay over somewhere Sunday night, but haven’t entirely decided where we want to stay Sunday night yet. It is seriously going to be a blast though and I cannot wait!
The last travel activity I have planned before my big Round the World Trip is a long weekend down in Washington DC with my friends Shannon and Luke. I have never been to DC before and we will be going mid-April, so I am hoping that the cherry blossoms are out at that time! One of my friends, Brian, lives nearby DC as well and plans to try and meet up with us while we are down there, which I am also really excited about since I haven’t seen him since July 2014.
I only have about 2 months left until my Round the World Trip begins too, and with the three of these trips packed in between now and then, the next two months should really fly by!
