Florida was beautiful and now that I’m not there, I miss it to death.
People always say, “I wanna travel here, here, here, etc”, and at some point I understood it.
You want to try out new places and see things that are totally out of the norm from where you’re from.
I want to go out, stay out late, and just have fun. I want to meet new people in a new place and enjoy the moments I have. I want to see beautiful things 24/7 and capture every moment through pictures, memories, and writing.
But I get that this is impossible to some degree. Life isn’t all about living in the moment every second of every day. Responsibility is crucial - which is why when you meet new people on vacation you still have to be weary and question their actions/motives.
I honestly just love traveling and am thankful I got to go to Florida for even a tiny bit, once again. Exploring a new part of Florida with just my friends was a new experience for me. It had it’s good parts and bad…but I’ll never forget this trip. I just want to go back and see more of the world.
I’m so thankful I was able to spontaneously plan this trip with my friends and relax for 5 days. I’m thankful my parents let me do it, ‘cause their opinion still matters to me. I’m glad my dad didn’t make such a big deal out of this trip and even told my aunts off about it by saying, “people need to travel to see the world”, and bragged about how I planned this first trip all by myself with just my friends.
It’s not about traveling to one destination all the time - it’s about seeing the world. And yea, Florida is still in the US and not waaaay different compared to (let’s say) Spain. But it’s a start! I want to make it a point to travel somewhere around the world at least once a year, officially starting this year.
Leaving for the airport in about 5 hours and I still have to pack.
Of course, my body is nowhere near bikini ready but whatever. After Florida, I seriously need to get back in shape and reanalyze how the hell I managed to gain about 15lbs. in two years….makes me so freaking saaaaaaaad.
Just wanna get tan and go running every damn day after I come back. Wheee! And I REALLY wanna go biking in the Everglades!! Hopefully the rest of da crew’s up for it - beautiful scenery while working out? Uh yea yea yea legggggggggo.
