How I Plan to Travel the World, One Paycheck at a Time

I have a sister who lives right outside of Columbus, Ohio and I’m visiting for the New Year. I haven’t seen her in almost a year so, i was excited to see her.

Being from Chicago, when I travel, other cities tend to look tiny. I don’t know why lol, but they do. The buildings seem like buildings in a doll house. It’s so cute…hehe

Despite that, I really like it here. I thought it would be boring, but it’s not! šŸ™‚

We had so much fun….

There’s a beauty supply with almost everything “buy one, get one free” and they have quite a few drive thru convenience stores where you can even purchase alcohol and they bring it right to your car. It’s pretty cool.

Being here for these few days is making me question if I want to stay in Chicago at all. I really enjoy traveling by train or bus. I enjoy meeting the new people and comparing each place to one another. The scenery is always beautiful. The rivers I cross, the advertisements for businesses, gas prices, new people…..all of it.

I hate going home. šŸ˜¦ Chicago represents so much stress for me. I feel stressed thinking about that place!

Maybe it’s my family and the unhappiness that I know is waiting for me as soon as I return. I’m a worry wart by nature so, it’s even worse. That’s info for another post though.

Anyway, I’ve made up my mind that I want to travel. Traveling is so much better than being stagnant in one location. If only I could be paid for this…

To travel, I know I have to save money. Can’t travel off of faith alone! So here’s my plan:

1. Every 5-6 months, I’ll leave Chicago. That’s 2 times a year, I’m traveling to a different place.

2. Out of each check I’ll set aside 50 dollars for this purpose. That’s $500-$600 dollars for each trip.

3. Of course these destinations won’t be grand, I won’t be leaving the country every trip. Just leaving Chicago. At least for now. šŸ™‚

My first destination has yet to be determined. But it’ll be happening in June.

I’ll bring my sis along.. 💕💕
