Vacations: Good, Bad, and Beautiful
Hey all! I am currently making the rapid turnaround from an amazing outdoor adventure in Canada to a fast few days metro-NYC. This means washing all of my grubby hiking clothes and packing my best city-wear. I will share many, many photos of Canada here soon. In the meantime, here is what I’ve been doing and will do.
-Backpacked in Banf with my brother and sister. Experienced Alpine Spring and hike to a teahouse in the mountains between two lakes.
-Visited hot springs and more lakes with my whole family.
-Went for an 11 mile bike ride in Chicago. Had THE BEST time.
-Ran all over downtown with my sister just for fun. Bought theses earrings!
-Rent a bike in NYC
-Learn this song
-Pay all of my bills !!!
-Share photos of my trip to Canada
-I went to an amazing secret concert… and got tickets for another one!
-We got a gig! I got paid to play jazz with my two best friends.
-We tried to go camping… ended up with a long road trip, a few mosquito bites, and a restful night in our own beds (the trail to our campsite was flooded!)

-be packed for vacation by the end of today!
-don’t spent more than $100 during vacation
