So we just got back from a holiday, but I’m already looking forward to my next one!

SleepyGene and I just booked flights to Maui for a week in March. I don’t have any flexibility in when I take my vacation, so this week was the only time we could go. But I am so excited!

SG has traveled a lot but I haven’t been on a trip outside the country for close to ten years. After university, I was always working too much and then I was in grad school and every time I had time off I would always fly back home. But I finally told my parents last year that I wanted to prioritize travel more and I wouldn’t be going back to visit them every time I had a holiday. They were kind of bummed but then they gave me a new piece of luggage for Christmas, which was their way of saying they support me. SG and I decided we wanted to go somewhere warm and we found these really reasonably priced flights to Maui. So we’re off to paradise in only ten weeks! This is the first time either of us has gone on a trip like this with a significant other but oddly, I’m not at all nervous about it, just super excited to share this experience with him.

What are you looking forward to right now, GT?
