Prompt: Travel. How did you travel in 2010? How and/or where would you like to travel next year?

My desires to travel, beyond going to Mexico and other states in the US, has been growing evermore. Paul and I have had the intention to go abroad before we have children since we were first dating. It seems like the logical thing to do. I want to see other parts of the world and neither of us are ready or willing to buy a house anytime soon with the way our market is. The travel part just hasn’t happened quite yet, we’ve gotten pretty heavy into working the past few years, but in the past few months we have been talking more about making some real plans, and will hopefully be doing something really neat after our wedding in August. Originally we thought it would be nice to go to Spain for a while and travel around Europe for our honeymoon, but it has gotten so expensive over there that we kind of decided to look into somethhing more reasonable. Also, Paul has been to Spain, and even though it would be wonderful regardless, I also think it would be cool if we went somewhere neither of us had been before. Well, just in the past few weeks, an amazing opportunity has arisen and it seems like the stars may be lining up for us to do some serious traveling. I am very very excited. Nothing is set in stone, but if it all works out we may be going to Hawaii for our honeymoon, then heading to New Zealand for 5 months to WWOOF on a farm or retreat, come back for Christmas 2011, and then actually move to Singapore for 2 years.

We also have the opportunity to work with our good friends Alma Desnuda in the Bay Area to help promote their amazing music. Paul and I both have talked a lot about this, and they have talked to us about it before. We are still talking about the details, but it may happen, and then we could go to New Zealand in the Spring of 2012.

As for this year, in July, Paul and I drove up to Northstar for Wanderlust. It wasn’t a super far away trip, but was great. I also went up to Oregon to visit my parents in August for a few days. Other than that, I just worked a lot this year.
