This little bird…

… is taking a vacation!!! No, not from the blog especifically, but a real 3-week vacation to the US. New York, Seattle and Charleston await, and I can hardly wait myself.

It´s been years since the last time I took a trip like this, and it´s a trip I´ve been planning for months, and working my ass off to afford, and in many ways it´s a very unusual vacation because it´s gonna be mostly about things that aren´t typically touristy, which is exactly how I like it.

For me, traveling is about remembering everything that´s out there for me to discover, realizing that most of the things that I take for granted or assume are common really aren´t, and then on the other hand, many aspects of my own life and culture are shared with people I would have previously assumed to be completely different.

I know that world peace couldn´t even be achieved with awesome cookies like these, but I always find myself pondering about common traits when I travel in the sense that even though there is lot to split people from different countries apart, there´s just so much that could potentially unite.

But anyways, I know you don´t come here to read my ramblings about world cultures and peace, and I´m getting behind in my packing frenzy since I need to be at a friend´s apartment in like half an hour for a going-away party in my honor (by the way, I still haven´t decided if they love me, want tons of presents from the trip, or are really just looking for whatever excuse to throw a party… maybe all three of them, either way, not complaining!).

So I hope everyone has a marvelous time while I´m gone, and I promise to be back with tons and tons of pictures, and a story or two to share with you all.

Spring, here I come!

  1. I do hope you have a wonderful visit with all!
    The typically touristy isn’t why I travel either!

  2. Charleston is either going to appear boring compared to NY and Seattle or like a little place of calm and quiet before your return!
