Flight Booked!!

I officially booked my flight to Portugal!!!! After years of saying I was going to do it, then not saving enough money, saving money then using it for something else, I finally made it a priority to save for this trip, no excuses! And I did it! I'm so proud of myself right now. I will be going for two weeks in July and the total cost of the flight including cancellation insurance is $763. It's a great price for going during the summer because summer is always the most expensive. Right now my travel fund is about $2770 so even after I pay off the flight on my credit card I will still have $2000 left! :)

Did I mention this will be my first time flying?? And I'm going across the ocean by myself. I might be a little insane!

Anyways, on to other topics. I still don't have my iPhone. I called a different Bell store yesterday and the girl said they have been only getting a few at a time. I hate waiting! :(

Today I went to Value Village because I had a WagJag voucher for $15. I ended up buying a globe and a j-crew sweater, and only paid about $5 out of pocket! I'm starting a globe collection after being inspired by pictures such as this one on Pinterest:

I'm also on the hunt for maps after seeing this picture:

Anyways, I found the exact J-crew sweater that I just got online. This is it:

Apparently it's about $98! It was priced at $12.99 and the tags were still on!!!

Awesome! And I can't believe this is your first flight! My boyfriend went on his first plane last year, and now he's been on a plane like 15 times already.

congrats! that's the way to do it for travelling, just book the flight and go. otherwise you'll find a thousand excuses not to go or to use the $ on something else. travelling by yourself is very brave. it must be exciting for you. can't wait to read about your portugal adventures.

Thanks for all your comments. I am so unbelievably, over the moon excited. And terrified at the same time. Since it is my first flight and all. But its going to be an adventure for sure :)

I saw that you'd booked your flight, was going to comment and for some reason I don't see my comment here... I'm so excited for you!!! You got a GREAT rate! I enjoyed traveling on my own, I think you will too!

You have relatives on the other end, right?
