I truly miss traveling. Last year, I planned to travel to a number of international destinations but had to cancel due to COVID19. As a result, now I have flight credits out of the waazoo and... they have an expiration date. I also miss checking out thrift stores in other cities. So, I've decided to spend 2021 on a #travelingthrifter journey to combine my two favorite hobbies. I will be traveling to various cities across the United States (both big and small) that have been on my travel wish list for a while. Of course, this is all pending the environment and economy.
I'm planning to do so as safely as possible.
To prepare, I've created a checklist to keep me in line...
✅ Schedule vacation at work
✅ Book flight
✅ Book hotel
✅ Book rental car, if needed
✅ Research thrift stores - compile thrift list
✅ Research places to visit
✅ Research places to eat
✅ Plan itinerary
✅ Check weather/temps during visit
✅ Plan wardrobe - build Pinterest inspo board
✅ Start packing with my favorite Away luggage
✅ Remember that we’re still in the throws of a pandemic so take precautionary measures, including cancelling or rescheduling appointments for 2 weeks after my return to limit exposing others if sick
Hopefully, I've captured everything! If not, I'm sure I'll have a nice routine in place after the first few trips.
Yours in thrift,
