Start Small

Traveling has always been a huge dream of mine. Maybe it’s because the farthest I’ve been out of the U.S. is Canada…

There’s so much out there I have yet to see and experience. And eat!
Until the day comes to travel and wander (hopefully soon) small trips will have to do.

Earlier in the year my family was surprised to hear I had never been to Mackinaw (which is practically a crime if you live in Michigan) So my sister took it upon herself to have a sister trip as my graduation present.

Last weekend the car was packed and we were on our way. I’d like to share a few photos.

We went up in a lighthouse for free!

44 steep slippery steps later we made it to the top.

A beautiful view of the lake from the ferry.

And of course the bridge.

Even if traveling far or going on big¬†excursions isn’t a reality for you, make the best of the small trips. They can be just as amazing.

The view and the history was splendid to experience and I had a great time with my sister sharing our ideas, thoughts, and aspirations. 

Have you recently gone on a fun trip? Big or small? Tell me about it! I’d love suggestions as to where to adventure to next.
