My friend shared this on Facebook the other day and I just wanted to yell THIS THIS THIS! Yes!
I can say, that I don’t travel as much as I wish I did, and I haven’t been as many places as I wish, but we are working on it. We have a big Europe trip planned for the winter (I’ll tell you about that in a moment) and I’m so excited!!
You may or may not know that I work at a travel company – so I am surrounded by travel, all the time. I love the idea of traveling around the world. Seeing new places and new cultures is something that you can’t compare anything else to. Seeing those famous sights on tv or in movies, and knowing that you have been there before – is pretty awesome.
There are so many people who NEVER have and never intend to see the world, outside of their little bubble and I feel a little disappointed for them. There isn’t anything wrong about not traveling, but at least once or twice in your life, you should get out of your “bubble” and see what the rest of the world is about. Find all the beauty that is out there! You don’t have to go across the world to do this, but even just across the country. The south is so different from the north, east coast vs. west coast.
Take for example something simple, Texas vs. Massachusetts. They are so different in so many ways – but I love them both. If two places in the same country can be so different – imagine how 2 countries can differ. Have you lived the majority of your life in the same town? Have you ever left your state? region? or country? If you answered no to any of those – you need to travel! There is so much out there!
Anyway, I think you get the point – travel is important, exciting and FUN! Travel is good.
Like I said, I am by no means, in any way, a world traveler, but I am thankful that at an early age my parents took me out of the country a few times – to see how big and different the world really is and I look forward to doing the same with Lennox when she is older. I have had the opportunity to go a few other places with work as well and it’s exciting. My husband, has not been out of the country, other than to the Caribbean and I can’t wait for him to experience our upcoming trip!
So, what is our big upcoming trip? It’s just short of 2 weeks of greatness in…
We will be traveling for 12 days and I am looking forward to it so much. The fact that I get to see my #1 spot (Venice) and Kyle gets to see his #1 spot (London) – is awesome! I will be sharing more about this as it gets closer and closer!
I am lucky enough to have won a contest at work that is helping us get to where we are going, but even with that – you can travel without breaking the bank and on a budget and I hope to share with you how exactly you can do that too!
