People have been asking me for months how I’m going to celebrate becoming debt-free and my answers have been seriously boring. Buy some new clothes? I need ’em but I can get those anytime now. Champagne? Drinks with friends? Nah, I gave that stuff up. Start saving? After I pay for what I’m now calling “The Summer of Weddings” – most definitely. But two hours after I made my final debt repayment, I did something I’ve wanted to do for years – I booked a trip to San Francisco. That might sound a little impulsive – and, ok, it was – but if I don’t do this trip now, there’s a chance I never will.
Because of a credit I had with Alaska Airlines, I got a roundtrip ticket for $269 all fees and taxes in. I’m staying with a friend from the Planwise team, which takes care of what is usually the most expensive part of any trip (accommodation). And all I need to do now is save up some spending money for when I’m there.
To say I am excited about this trip would be an understatement. Much like my trip to NYC at Christmas, a trip to SFO was sort of a fantasy goal for this year. But now it’s happening! I’m heading down on July 17th – 10 days after my 28th birthday – and you know I’m already counting down to it!
Have you ever been to San Francisco? Tell me something I should do when I’m there. :)
