Chicago City Lights

Photographer Jim Richardson Source [http://photography.nationalgeographic.com/photography/wallpaper/chicago-lights.html] "Chicago at night burns bright under blankets of clouds. Much of the glow escapes from streetlamps, including clear, Victorian-style lamps good for creating atmosphere but poor for harnessing today's extra-bright bulbs."-Nat Geo

3 Ways To Get Your Wanderlust Fix On A Budget
For people who don't feel right when their feet have been on the same soil for too long, you understand the hold wanderlust has over you. Looking up flight prices, addicted to hostel world, and the map on your wall is marked with every place you NEED to go to has you feeling all types of pent up and claustrophobic when you are home bound. So you also understand the horror of being landlocked not because you lack a sense of adventure, but because money doesn't grow on trees and neither does time off. However, never fear, because there are some ways to get that wander lust fix in-between trips. 1. Plan weekend trips to places you've never been before. I know leaving the country always seems so much better than staying in your own, but you need to toss that notion aside. Each country has something mysterious, amazing, and shockingly new that you are doing yourself an injustice by not traveling it. Start planning mini trips to states, or your countries equivalent of a state, (I'm from the US clearly haha), and go! It costs a lot less plus going somewhere totally new will feel awesome! 2. Do something you've never done before! Make your current home seem more exciting by doing something you have never ever done before. Adventure is everywhere, you just have to be willing to look! Go rock climbing the town over from you or google the nearest sky diving place. Take a hike on a trail you've never been on or even go camping with friends if you are to use to the city landscape. Mixing up life at home by making your own adventures can help you get a little dose of that travel feeling to remind you that the world truly can be yours. 3. Go out to eat at an authentic restaurant you never tried before. Wander lust is all about new experiences, so if you want to go to India, find a truly authentic Indian restaurant to lose yourself in for a meal. Food is one of the greatest parts about travel, so if you are really tight on a budget, one meal could get you your fix. Just make sure you do some research first to make sure your place can really sell you the culture you wished you were submerged in. Just remember, keep saving and take the plunge, travel is always worth it.
9 Beautiful Places To Travel Without Leaving The States
Most people get bit by the travel bug at some point in their life. What sucks is that being a world traveler can cost a lot of money. Then you have to take time off of work, which costs you money, fly everywhere which costs you time, and deal with currency exchange which can cost you a ton! But just because you can't fly off to an unknown continent doesn't mean you can't travel! Using budgettravel.com I have chosen for you the most amazing places to visit state side. Now start planning your trip already, you aren't getting any younger! The Grand Canyon Every single person who has ever been to the Grand Canyon always says that their pictures can't even capture its beauty, which is crazy because look how beautiful that picture is! My friend just went there and said that little river flowing through the canyon is actually bigger then a football field....if that gives you any idea how HUGE it actually is. Lake Tahoe In beautiful, warm Cali Tahoe could be another world. The waters are clear, bright blue and anything we all ever crave out of a tropical retreat....except you can still drink the water! Yellow Stone National Park A park full of natural wonder, you can spend weeks just exploring the wildlife. This park is full of beautiful flowers, hot springs and wild animals to make you feel like you have just stepped into a forest untouched by humans (yet still feel safe). Also the park contains the largest active geyser in the world that erupts all the time! Redwood Forest Cali isn't just all beaches and sun bathing. The Redwood forest is one of the most magical places on earth and it will defiantly make you feel small. Just look at the difference between the full gown man and the redwood trees. Now picture that surrounding you. Jackson Hole, Wyoming Breath taking in both the winter and the summer, Jackson Holes Teton Mountain Range makes me want to move there right now! Amazing for skiing and hiking the little town lights up like Time Square in the night. Big Sur, California Driving along the coast of this mountain range gives you all the best views of the beautiful Pacific Ocean! There are places to camp, dine, hike or just stop your car and enjoy the view and the salty breeze on your face. Time Square NYC From someone who lives here, I almost forgot to add in Time Square, however it most defiantly is a sight worth seeing in your life. Especially at night when everything is lit up. Expect to always have your eyes facing towards the sky as the lights and sky scrapers attack your eyes in the best possible way! Then go check out some more of NYC, like central park and governors island. Antelope Canyon Arizona Pretty sure this picture speaks for itself. Walking though these canyons must be jaw dropping, with waterfalls and bright colors and Dr. Seuss like rocks its no surprise people put this on their bucket list! Couples have even gotten their wedding pictures taken in the canyon! The Beartooth Highway in Montana Get in touch with nature walking around these mountains! Full of wild flowers, butterflies and other amazing wildlife it is hard not to get butterflies while looking at this picture! I can't imagine what it would be like in person! Girdwood, Alaska I had to put Alaska on this list because to many people think of this jaw dropping state as unlivable. With perfect snow covered trees and a silence that can actually be heard (weird right?), winter here is almost worth the cold. And in the summer the lakes and rivers are perfect for fishing and swimming and the mostly untouched land really makes you feel like humans haven't ruined everything yet.
Screw Normal Houses, Give Me A Tree House
Since so many people loved my card about Tiny Houses I thought you might also be interested in another new and AMAZING way to live... Fully furnished and jaw dropping Tree Houses! You read that right. There is now a show called TreeHouse Masters that build beautiful and livable tree houses. So any of you who related to Tarzan on a level most people could not understand....well this guys does! The tree houses are not your run of the mill planks nailed together like you had when you were a kid (or at least saw in the movies). These tree house include - a working bathroom - a functional kitchen - running water and - the most amazing views So what are you waiting for? Sell that old house and hop on the coolest band wagon yet. Tree Houses: To recreate your childhood...only now you have money. Check out this tour of a recently finished tree house! Doesn't that just look stunning. And the host of the show is SO NICE! I can not get over how beautiful this tree house is. Here are just a few more pics of their amazing creations. Here is a tree house that's roof is a living part of it! Many tree houses grow plants and grass onto their roofs to great an even earthier feel. No size or shape is impossible for the tree masters as they create circle houses and even houses that take the shape of a pinecone! Just look at the inside of this house!! Its the most beautiful thing I have ever seen! Although I think building a tree house like this one is going to cost a little more then a tiny house.... Well, happy saving and let me know if you would be just as down to live in a tree house as I am! I thought you might like this card since you liked the last one !! @buddyesd @jeff4122 @JordanNash @marshalledgar
