Where would you go?

When I found this amazing contest to win two free nights at any Hyatt on the blog "Camels and Chocolate: Tales from a Travel Addict", it got me thinking about where I would want to go and why.  Immediately I thought Trinidad and Tobago since this is where my mom is from and while I lived there when I was really little I have no memories of it.  Once I googled whether there was even a Hyatt there (there is!), I decidedthat would be my place, because not only is it an amazingly beautiful place to go (I've seen lots of pictures of me there), but it would be insight into my family history, culture, and who I am.  My dream is go with my mom some day so that I could experience all the newness and excitement of meeting family, and seeing where she lived and grew up with her.  It would be our special vacation together and something that no one else but us would share.  We talk about doing it all the time, but one day soon we'll really make it happen. So the question remains: where would you go?

Road Trip

Summer plans are slowly coming together! Here's what we've pieced together thus far:

End of June- Sequoia and Yosemite National Parks (no dates set just yet and no real plan of how long we will spend there) we end this part of the trip with RSlo going off doing some backpacking trips, and me heading back to SLO. 

July 18-22 Boston! I haven't been back to Boston in ages, but summer is my favorite time to visit (there's no snow on the ground then), and I'll be hanging with my good friend Lauren!

July 22-27 NYC! RSlo and I will be meeting up in NYC mainly to attend the engagement party of two of my good friends from college, but we will also be going to a Yankee game (we'll get to see the new stadium!), and just enjoying being in the city in the summer, which is something we've never been able to do together.

July 28- Trip back to California begins.  So far we know we will hit Indiana, (which always means a trip back to our alma mater IU) and Nashville, but there is some talk of going further south and maybe getting to Louisiana.  It'll be touch and go but either way I'm excited. Work begins again on August 12 so we'll have more than enough time to get back before then. 

Right now I am just counting down the days until students will be moving out!

How I feel....

Overwhelmed, tired, annoyed, over it....

That sums up my life these days, I feel like I'm a mess.

33 days until this awful test...
