For the past three years, I have traveled the country with my friends. Freshman year, I went to Destin, Florida; sophomore year  my friends and I drove up the East coast; junior year we hit the slopes in Aspen, Colorado. This spring break, I am looking to knock off just a few more things on my lengthy bucket list on a road trip with my best friend, Bernadette.

Bernadette and I will be bouncing from Asheville, North Carolina to Charleston, South Carolina and Savannah, Georgia. We are excited to kick off our trip with a half-marathon at the Biltmore Estate in Asheville. White water rafting, scenic hikes and amazing food is just the beginning.

Yeah we’re excited.

Our goals for this spring break are pretty simple. We want to have an awesome final spring break. A true philosopher of fun, Ferris Bueller once said,

“Life moves pretty past. If you don’t stop and look around once in a while, you could miss it.”

Pretty soon we will be in the real world, a.k.a. no more spring break. Spontaneous trips will be not-so spontaneous, rent payments, responsibilities and “adulting” will fill our calendars. Our goal is to make our last hoorah the best yet.

After doing some secondary research on our trip with friends, family and internet travel guides, we have established some of the key points we want to accomplish over the next week.


  • We want to make sure we make a dent in our bucket list of life.

Strategies and Tactics to Employ

  • Our strategy is to find unique and cool places as well as things to do while we are in each city.
  • The tactics we have employed include making our own lists of things to do and then collaborating on what we can fit in the week, planning ahead by making reservations for certain activities and creating lists of restaurants and must-see’s.

So how do we really know if our epic spring break was a success? I don’t think it will be too hard to accomplish, hopefully this will satisfy the adventure-junkie in me for a little bit.
