Straight Trippin’ In 2018

Woahhhh, happy New Year! When I wrote this post about all of the places I wanted to visit in 2017, I didn’t expect to get to go to all of them, but I did and then some! It just goes to show that writing down your goals really does increase the odds of achieving them. So I’m going to repeat the process every year with the places I want to visit. Here are my 2018 travel agenda goals:

Austin, TX. I love Austin soooo much and usually make it a point to spend time in my home state’s capitol when I visit family in San Antonio, but didn’t get to last time I was in town. Luckily, I’ll have double the opportunity as my sister and brother are getting married (not to each other!) in January and February of 2018, respectively. I’m trying to convince my older sister and her BF to stay with Joel and I either here or here for one night after one of the weddings. Austin is kind of the epitome of cool. I mean, it’s a very blue city smack dab in the middle of a pretty red state making it the black sheep sibling of all the Texas cities. One of my favorites for sure.

Atlanta, GA. My sister-in-law, Rachie, lives in ATL and we got to go down for Thanksgiving back when I was just Joel’s awesome girlfriend (no ring yet!). We freaking love it there and since we’re expecting a new little niece or nephew in March, it’d be a great reason to go back!

Albuquerque, NM. If I didn’t include ABQ in this list, I’d probably get virtually bitch slapped by my bestie. We’ve been wanting to go to the hot air balloon festival for so long, and maybe 2018 will be the year we do it! Then again, she does live in El Paso and I wouldn’t mind a weekend road trip to Marfa (hint, hint, Allie!). We love the Southwest!


Morocco.  That very same aforementioned bestie of mine’s mama is getting married in June and since she is currently living and working in Fez, she’s having a Moroccan wedding. How freaking cool is that? Getting to see friends who are living in amazing cities has always been one of my favorite things to do! Who wouldn’t love a built-in, knowledgeable tour guide?!

Whether it’s a weekend trip or a week long vacation, I hope to travel in 2018 at least as much as we did last year. I definitely go stir crazy staying put in one place for too long.

So where do you wanna go this year??
