This year has been good to me about traveling. 2019 is the year of travel for me. I have visited Portland OR, Destin FL (Santa Rosa beach), and I will be going to Spain in October and Malaysia in December. I am also hoping to visit Thailand or Singapore when I am in Malaysia. It’s exciting that all I can think about is travel. I have been looking at Vlogs, reading travel books, and blogs. Also, this is the first time I will be traveling internationally with friends. My international trips before I went solo with a travel company. I met new friends on my trip but I did not go with friends already. My trips to Spain and Malaysia is something I get to experience with my friends. We will create new memories together.
I have already bought the plane tickets from my trips. I will be flying to Madrid on Oct 21st and flying to Kuala lumpur on Dec 21st but will get there Dec 22nd. We will be back in Texas Dec 30th. The hotels or hostels have not been set up yet. My friend Lydnsey and I are planning our hotels/hostels in mid September for Malaysia. We even want to plan visiting an elephant park in Thailand even if its just for a day. Neither of us have been to Asia and we are both really excited. I am glad I will be experiencing this trip with her. For my Spain trip, I will be going with 3 of my friends. We are planning to set up a hotel, hostel, or airbnb really soon. The days are flying by and October will be here before you know it. I also want to plan to visit Barcelona. Apparently, I can take the AVE, a fast train to get me there. Its seems like my friends are on board with it too.
Both my Portland and Florida trip were amazing. For my future trips, I am really excited about them. I also had a new learning experience by setting up my Spain and Malaysia trips. I got to experience buying my first internationally plane tickets. My past international trips, the plane tickets were set up for me. I also get to experience going with friends for the first time. 2019 has been good to me and I hope the same for 2020.
