I know some people dread the thought of it, but I love to travel. Well, I love the excitement of it all, getting to a new destination, seeing fam or friends we love and don't get to see often enough, having fun along the way, getting a special coffee or some yummy food. A flight itself, not so fun, too much waiting, among many other things; packing and unpacking, not so much either.
I [almost=)] always overpack, I need options. =) When I arrive at fun destination, I might not want to the wear Planned Outfit #3 one day. I might be having an extra fat day, I might not want to wear orange that day, whatever the reason, this lady needs several pair of pants, tops, scarves, shoes, accessories to choose from, a straightener, maybe the gigantic case of hot rollers just in case a date is in order... =) I only fill one piece of luggage, although my bag might weigh 60-150 lbs. Any recommendations on lightweight, sturdy, cute luggage are welcome. It's tough to fit more than our bath bag one of our suitcases without it hitting 50 lbs (airline limit)!
We, I mean, he ;-) might have trips to... CA, SC, CO, UT, AZ, WA, FL, NJ, GA, AL... and MI (my cousin is getting married next summer!) I've really been wanting to go to Colorado and Washington, I just keep hearing they are gorgeous!=)
The planner, organizer, excited Type A in me is already starting to plan! Mr. NCF is secretly thinking of how easy most of these business trips would be solo while I am excited about exploring and visiting friends! I jest but he is excited about showing us all of the neat places that he's already been. =) (yes, I said neat.)
So first up, at the end of January we're driving to South Carolina (and hopefully through Georgia and onto Alabama to visit wonderful friends, we're trying to make that work!)! Hubby has meetings in Charleston for a few days, and then I'm looking forward to my possible second bloggy meetup. The boys and I are so excited=).
If you've been to or know of some fun things to do in Charleston, South Carolina, I'd love to hear any suggestions you have for me and the boys while the Hubs is in meetings, and for all of us once he's done for the day. We've heard great things about the carriage rides through historic downtown and if it's not too cold, that would be an interesting and fun family morning!
Do you have any fun or business trips coming up?
