Hitting the Road!

Leaving on a Virginia/North Carolina Road Trip.

OK. I am doing it. In the morning I am hopping in my car and taking the biggest longest road trip I’ve ever taken and driving by myself further than I’ve even driven by myself before to a couple of states I have never been to before!

It’s kind of scary and I’m kind of worried that something will happen and I won’t know what to do and I’m kind of thinking I should stop for an oil change along the route. But I’m going!

This is my anticipated route, although things often and always change (especially since the person I was going to visit in Charlottesville might be in Pennsylvania…detour?)

See what a pretty circle I made?

Although I am going on my own, I’m also stopping by to see a few friends along the way. Like…

Rob and Christine. Joe and Alina's White Wedding in South Bend, Indiana.

Rob is a friend from college and Christine is his wife and he likes bad movies just like me.

Will is a guy I met in a bar in Amsterdam. He’s in a band. He is always telling me to come to Virginia but he might not even be in Virginia!

Hungry Sisters in New York

Sadie and Jamie and Carrie are girls I know from the competitive eating circuit. We’re going to a bluegrass festival together!

I’ll be doing some blogging from the road and you can follow my traveling alter ego on Twitter for some live road trip updates!

Hi, I'm Val. I spent most of my 20s in a standstill, unable to pick which path in life I wanted to take. I wanted the nomadic life of a traveler but also wanted the husband, the condo, and the kitten. Unable to decide which life I wanted more, I did nothing. When I turned 30 I’d had enough of putting my life on hold and decided to start “choosing my figs.” So, I quit my job, bought a one-way ticket to Europe, and traveled for three years. Now I'm back in Chicago, decorating my apartment in all the teal, petting my cats, and planning my next adventure.
