Travel Junkie

Today is the last day to enter my Christmas in July Giveaway so if you haven't done so please go here. It ends tonight at 12:00pm est. The winner will be randomly selected from random.org this weekend and announced on Sunday or Monday. 

I am so thankful today is Friday. Even though I'm still in the middle of my work week (I work Thursday-Sunday), I'm so happy to see today. It brings me another day closer to getting out of town and being in Florida. To say that I cannot wait would be an understatement, I need to escape! 

Ever since I came back from my glorious 16 days in Los Angeles and New Mexico. I have been craving more travel. AND yes I know I went to Tennessee a couple of weeks ago but it was only an overnight visit. This time it's a different feeling. I came back wanting to travel forever. Hello! My name is Jennifer and I am a travel junkie. Hi Jennifer!
I wish I could get paid to travel the world. I'd be willing to do that. Actually, I'd be ecstatic to do that. I would take silly pictures (some serious of course), eat at all the local restaurants, shop in the markets, do everything tourist style and talk to anyone who would listen about my experiences. How did Samantha Brown get so lucky? 

There's gotta be a way...

There is always a way! I'm not sure where you would start... but actually going places and enjoying it so much is a start.

I tagged you in some question/answer funtime today!

Have a great weekend, even though you're working! :)

I love traveling! Getting to go to new, fun places is great. Make a list of all the places you want to visit start a piggy bank to save and you will be on your way to a new fun place soon. Happy Travels! :)

Yeah, Never heard of this Samantha Brown until today but.... I'm with you, LUCKY girl! I want that gig also.
What about a Flight Attendant like Brandi/Excess Baggage? =)

I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to be a travel photographer. To have someone pay me to travel different places and take pictures would be awesome!

mrsashcake said...

Become a travel agent! not sure how that works as far as getting paid to travel but i do know travel agents have to travel to lots of different places so they can tell customers about all the options :)

ENJOY EVERY MINUTE OF YOUR TRAVELS!

I have to say, each time I saw previews for Samantha Brown's ASIA trip, I teared up a little - not because I'm a sap, but because that is how badly I want to experience the world's cultures. That being said, I'll be sure to tune in when the Travel Channel hires you!

Ashley said...

Are you still moving to NM?

Meghan said...

I couldn't agree more! Ever since I came home from Europe I am DYING to continue traveling! I am trying to figure out how to do it and save for a new car and house. If you figure it out let me know!

You inspired me. I just booked a long weekend trip to Orlando last night. Harry Potter Land, here I come.

Mrs EyeCanSee said...

Amen. I want to be Samantha Brown in my next life. Talk about a fabulous job!

Melissa said...

I so jealous of Samantha Brown too! Ever since we got back from our trip to Dominican Republic I have been searching for my next vacation.

Brandi said...

MrsB said...

i totally felt the same way. i spent 21 years of my life without traveling by plane. then i visited ireland and tennessee and thought 'my gosh, there are more places in the world than my hometown'. since then, ive traveled numerous places.

tina said...

I'm with you--how did Samantha Brown get so lucky? I would love love love to get paid to travel (and work, of course!!)

Amanda said...

Yeah wouldn't it be nice to be Samantha Brown? The thing that gets me about her is she's not that pretty, talented, funny or even a celebrity...so how exactly did she get into it???
