Europe 2018 - Part 2 - New York

Hello again! Welcome back. I hope you are all well and ready for another blast from the past. :) Europe part 2. First time flying and New York! Howdy! Today Is the day! May 29, 2018 Truthfully, 2 days ago was the day. It was hard to find time to write when trying to fit in 2 flights and a trip to Times Square in one day! So it's the next day and here's the what you should know about my first flight and trip to New York.  1. God did not give me wings but I still found myself above the clouds.

May 22, 2018 | Rebekah Mireles It's almost here! This week is going to FLY by. In honor of this being the last week before the trip I wanted to give you all a little insight into what it took to get everything planned out. Today I'll talk about where we will be staying, flights, and how we managed to keep this trip under 2,000 USD per person.  BEFORE I KNEW To be absolutely truthful, I had no idea at the beginning of the year that I would be traveling across the world with the guy I had been talking to. It was a trip he and his friends had planned long before me. And I had accepted that. Yeah I was going to miss him, but he's got a life and I've got mine that we each need to live whether
