As a millennial, and a college student, and someone who loves the idea of seeing as much of the world as humanly possible, I love the idea of traveling.
This isn’t exactly newsworthy, I would venture to guess that at least half of the undergrad population at Louisville wants to travel at least a little bit.
Last year, I did it. Just a bit. Nowhere too far, or wide, but a couple places that were at least a plane ride away.
I saw Miami, Myrtle Beach, Panama City, New York, Chicago, Indianapolis, Columbus, and Gatlinburg.
Like I said, none of these places were too far, but I loved visiting them all the same. I climbed the smokies, went to so many (mostly Jon Bellion) concerts, saw Wicked on Broadway (wow what an experience), and gained a greater appreciation for the country that I live in.
Out of all of those places, I would say that Chicago was my favorite. I went for a concert and, don’t get me wrong, the city was expensive, but it was great. The concert was lively and blew my mind, and the food after was great, and the hostel we stayed in was pretty great all things considered.
New York was, honestly, not great. The people were rude (I know you’ve heard that all the time and I should’ve expected it), the prices were unbelievable, and we had tickets to a movie at a time at night when the theater was closed. Yes, closed.
I saw a lot of great things with a lot of great friends last year, but I’m not even close to being done.
I just got back from Gatlinburg for Spring Break (my preference to a beach because, honestly, I find beaches boring).
I currently have plans to go to Denver on May 7th for a concert, and a 4 day trip to New York on May 2-6, just to give it another shot.
I still have plans to see Portland, Washington, Houston, and Iceland. One of those is not like the other, I know.
I want to see and swim in the blue lagoon, in Rejkavic, Iceland.
I want to See the World.
And I intend to do so.
