I haven’t been able to travel much in 2010 because my funds have been tight, but I’m excited to announce that I’ve booked a trip to St. Louis for early December!
A 2-day, mid-week, mid-winter vacation to St. Louis might not be the most exotic trip one could take, but I’m looking forward to it. St. Louis is one of the biggest American cities I have yet to visit so I’ll finally get a chance to see the Arch and all the other stuff the city has to offer. I’m taking the Megabus so it’s a bargain-basement trip – just $17 for the round-trip – and I’ll probably couchsurf to minimize my expenses.
I recently read the Patricia Schultz book 1,000 Places to See in the USA and Canada Before You Die, and I browsed through it and discovered that I’ve already seen 168 of them. St. Louis offers the potential to see 4 more, so I will definitely try to hit those spots during my brief time there.
More details will be coming next month either here or on my brand new travel blog, which is still a work in progress. I hope to roll it out by the beginning of 2011.
