My family doesn’t really travel. No epic road trips to the grand canyon or Disney World for me. We did take trips, but they were generally to Virginia Beach and/or Busch Gardens. The biggest trip I’ve taken was a 2 hour flight to Chicago for research. I didn’t even get to see anything while I was there because I was in the lab the entire time so that hardly counts as a trip. I never really thought I’d ever actually get to travel with in the states, much less travel that required a passport.
But today, I took the first step (other than applying for this trip) in fixing my travel deficiency. Today I went and submitted my application for my passport and in four to six weeks I’ll be ready to go forth into the world!
It was expensive for a tiny little little book, but I’m sure the experiences I have on this trip alone will be worth the $110 I spent.
