Road Trippin' USA

View of the Chicago River
Just when the weather is starting to get hot in Chicago, I'm making plans to leave.  After spending the last 6 weeks here, I am now starting to look ahead to my plans to travel around my own country.  One week from Thursday, I'll be packing up my car again, this time I'll be traveling with my sister for part of my trip. (It seems each of my immediate family members has made it into my travel plans this year.) 

My trip will start and end in Chicago and I will fit in as many people and places as I possibly can in the 6 weeks in between. This trip will be very different from my other travels since I'll be spending so much time visiting people, but I already have some fun plans and places on the agenda, and I'm armed once again with a Lonely Planet to help get me to the places I may not have seen before. The travel bug is biting once again...

Books to be thankful for:
- Game of Thrones novels (I breezed through the first 3 and am now on the 4th), even better than the new HBO series
- The Hunger Games trilogy (I read this entire trilogy in just a few days) Love it!


  1. i wondered when the new travels would start!
