I recently started thinking about why it is that I have come to love travel so much. When I was writing my fall travel plans post last week (check it out here), I got so excited. I started doing research on all of the new cities I would be visiting; where to eat, what to do, how to get around, etc. All of this research and excitement for this fall got me thinking about why it is that I like to travel so much.
This was my second time in Chicago and I was so excited to go back and have more time to explore the city. During my first trip I was in and out in less than 24 hours; this time I had two full days. Needless to say, I was beyond excited and felt so much more prepared.
I have been fortunate over the past year, in that I have gotten to travel A LOT. And when I say I have traveled a lot, I mean I have been on 40 different planes in the past year. Now, I know there are people that travel far more than me, but I went from maybe getting on a plane twice a year to getting on a plane more than twice a month. So big change for Catie.
I was lucky enough to find a job that has allowed me to travel and go to some places that I never thought I would. It has also allowed me to go to some places that I have always wanted to go, but have not been able to for one reason or another. Today, I am going to focus on one of each, Charlotte and Chicago.
