1. Visit a new state
So, I haven’t quite gotten around to this one yet! A Spring full of busy travel has kept my schedule full. With only 8 states left to check off, I’m not sure how likely it is that I’ll make it to a new one by the end of the year.
2. Get PADI certified
As of Sunday evening, I am officially certified as a PADI Open Water Diver!! I completed this course just in time for my upcoming trip to Australia in September. I’ve booked a 3 day liveaboard boat to continue my diving certification as well as explore the Great Barrier Reef.
3. Learn a little Spanish
I’ve done a great job of refining my French skills… but I haven’t made much (any) progress with Spanish. I attended a Spanish language learning event hosted by my company last week- that is better than nothing, right?
My friends and I are toying with the idea of a CDMX trip in November, this could be the perfect opportunity to brush up on my skills (and eat some delicious food).
4. Take More Texas Road Trips
In February, I took a girls trip to Texas Hill country to see the town of Fredricksburg and explore local wineries. I’ve also made trips to Fort Worth and Lake Texoma. I still haven’t seen San Antonio yet- so still working on this goal!
5. Start Blogging
Lately, it seems that work and travel have sucked up all of my spare time- I haven’t been blogging lately but I have so many ideas for articles to write. I’m planning on publishing guides to Georgia & Armenia soon.
