By the time you read this, I’ll likely be en route to the airport or up in the air. My flight to SFO leaves at 07:00 PST and, with a quick layover in Portland (Hello A + J and Kathleen!), I should be in the city by noon.
As most of you know, San Francisco was the only city on my travel bucket list for this year. When I made my final debt repayment, I celebrated by purchasing a round trip ticket (for less than $300, thanks to a credit I had with Alaska Air). I’m only going for 4 nights and 5 days, which may not seem like a long time, but the best part of this trip is that I’m going with no plans.
Seriously, I have no plans. Zero. Zip. None.
I also don’t really have anyone to hangout with. I mean, I’ll see what the Planwise team is up to… but this is basically a solo trip, otherwise. Does that sound terrifying to you? I can’t say that the old me would have been comfortable travelling around by myself for 1 day – let alone 5. But I don’t really know that girl anymore… and this trip is just for me. I want to explore. I want to live in the moment. And I want to write.
Of course, this also aligns with what I said last week about just saying yes to everything that comes my way. Much like my trip to NYC at Christmas, I want to walk around, stop wherever I want, eat and drink whatever looks good and just soak it all up.
So far, the weather forecast looks perfect – not too hot, not too cold. So long as my foot can handle all of the walking I hope to do, I think it’s going to be a great trip. I’ll be back next week with a couple recap posts and a breakdown of what it cost me.
Until then… :)
See you soon, San Francisco!
