In my early 20's I traveled alone, at the time my work schedule only allowed me to go away during May and/or October, not exactly the high season. Although I went to far off exotic place, met loads of friendly people, dealt with culture shock and learned a lot about myself, nothing beats going away with friends. I now focus on short trips with girlfriends to major cities (preferably USA). Nothing will change my views or experiences overseas, but hanging out with a couple of girlfriends in an awesome city is what I prefer these days.
A few weeks back two of my girlfriends, their significant others and myself went to Toronto, a wedding outside of T.O. and then my one girlfriend and I headed to the Windy city. More pictures to come!
And here is my adorable puppy (who lives with my parents) who is too hot and lazy to bend down for a drink. All together now, Aaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.
