Keeping Me Sane

 In Idaho, Montana, United States of America, Utah, Wyoming

The idea of traveling makes my head wander. I think about the what ifs and what to do when I get there. So, to keeping me sane, I traveled when I get the chance. This time, I got an 8-day off thus, I have decided to make a travel itinerary to states, locations and cities that I haven’t visited yet.

This is how my itinerary looked like. I planned to travel the states of Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, and Utah.

As what you’ve noticed on my travel itinerary, I included hours of driving/walking and the time I’ll spend when I’m there. That is how meticulous I am when it comes to traveling but that makes my brain occupied and that keeps me sane. The joy and satisfaction I felt when I get to set foot on locations I have never been before. Traveling makes my sanity on check.
