The Countdown Begins

A week after I quit my job at Half Price Books last July I made a decision regarding my next vacation. Washington, DC. Again. I visited last May and I simply couldn’t wait to get back. The dates? January 18-25. To experience my first presidential inauguration. But then election night happened, along with my inability to find employment. My plans changed.

In December while waiting on word from numerous potential employers I decided to start adjusting my plans. My next choice? Boston.

I originally planned on April 18-25. But the Yankees are playing the Red Sox on the 25th. I COULD NOT MISS IT if I was already going to be in town. I added a day. I’m leaving on the 18th to visit one of the most historic cities in America. It’ll be my longest and first solo trip, but I could not be more excited.

This trip has been nearly 9 months in the making, and I’m ready to go.

Which place have you visited that left you immediately wanting to go back?

    • When I left DC and began my job search I looked to see if there was anything in the area I might be qualified for. I ultimately decided against applying for the couple of positions I was interested in, but I haven’t eliminated the possibility. Also, I think Key West would be great. Though hurricane season might deter me.


  1. I hope you have a great time! Boston is definitely on my list of historic places to visit. Haven’t been there yet. I loved Dublin and my sister and I will be going back to Ireland next year. I also adore Savannah, Georgia. A beautiful old city. My sister and I did an eight mile walking tour of the historic areas of it. Amazing! I really want to go back.
