One morning, as I was lying in bed, a passing thought inspired me to make a promise to myself. I decided I would do something I’ve always wanted to do every year on my birthday—essentially crossing an item off my proverbial bucket list. Anyone could foreseeably eat breakfast in Houston, lunch in San Antonio, and dinner in Dallas—it would be a great day trip! I figured I could put it on my bucket list and try it someday. Keeping a promise to yourself is more difficult than it sounds, but that day finally arrived this summer.

Five to seven days—that’s the average amount of time an American family will take time off of work and school to go on a vacation. But what if you only had five to seven hours to go on a vacation? In the midst of busy work and school schedules, a day trip is all you need to pack in local favorites, sites to see, and things to do in your bucket list cities. Hop on a morning flight out and grab an evening flight home to get the most out of your day trip to Nashville, Tennessee.

Ever since my obsession with the show Big Little Lies started, Monterey has been calling my name. Earlier this year, I had the privilege of joining the #SouthwestStorytellers team, so when a friend told me he was celebrating his birthday there it seemed like the perfect getaway.

 

During our short weekend stay, we were able to cover a lot of ground both in and around the city and discover some of the most scenic areas in California. Read more for my list of top five places to check out the next time you make it to this special part of the golden coast.

I'd like to give a big thanks to Southwest. Recently, my 7-year-old and 8-year-old flew by themselves for the first time. I chose Southwest to be the provider of that experience because truthfully, it seems to be the only airline left where the Employees actually enjoy their job and interacting with Customers.

 

While any parent would be nervous about leaving their kids alone to fly, I had faith that Southwest would not only deliver my children safely, but do it with care. So, my expectations were not low for this experience— yet you still managed to exceed them.

People associate a number of emotions with travel; however, adrenaline isn’t typically one of those emotions—unless you’re a Southwest Airlines Intern! On Friday mornings, before I leave for work, I always pack a backpack with the essentials for travel: a swimsuit, my passport, hiking shoes, and a rain jacket. One thing I don’t have? A boarding pass or a destination! This summer, I’ve been fortunate to spend the majority of my weekends traveling with my fellow Interns. As July is Parks and Recreation Month, we’ve been especially focused on exploring as much of America’s open space and natural wonder as possible.

Shortly after turning 50, I wanted to do something fun for my 50s. I wanted to travel, I wanted to write, I wanted to meet new people … and I wanted to barefoot water ski.

 

Out of all those passions, a quest was born. I wanted to barefoot water ski in all 50 states! I was going to give myself a full 10 years to complete the quest and enjoy every aspect of it.
