Travel. As much as you can. As far as you can. As long as you can. Life's not meant to be lived in one place.

Travel is Good.

My friend shared this on Facebook the other day and I just wanted to yell THIS THIS THIS! Yes!

Travel. As much as you can. As far as you can. As long as you can. Life's not meant to be lived in one place.

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…

Venice

Venice - CanareggioParis

ParisLondon

London Tower Bridge - canon eos 550dWe 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!

So where have you traveled or wish to travel to?

    Totally agree! I was a big traveler. I still love it but ever since we started a family we just haven’t done it as much. I’m looking forward to our 10-year anniversary trip though! We are planning to visit Italy!!!

    Absolutely agree – I heard some lady on the radio today on my drive home from Northern Ontario, and she was spouting off about how vacations are so expensive and it’s better to make memories at home. Totally DO NOT agree with her at all….some of the best memories I have are from traveling!
    In my adult life, I’ve been to Barcelona, Sicily (climbed Mt. Etna), Malta, Greece, Istanbul, and the Bahamas.
    On my wish list? India, Paris (I’ve been once, but would like to go again), Hawaii, Bora Bora

      Some vacations are very expensive, but you can do a lot of trips on the cheap if you try or save up for a trip – savings can add up quickly! I totally agree with you – that lady is wrong!

    I was able to travel within the US quite a bit in my teen and college years, but since having a family, we’ve really stayed in one spot. Now that my kids are getting a little older, I’m eager to travel with them more. Maybe even outside the US? 🙂

    I totally agree with you – I’ve stopped buying things so I can spend my money on travel. We’ve been to the three countries you’re visiting and I know you will love them! Can’t wait to follow your adventures!

    My husband’s #1 was London and it totally lived up to his expectations. Mine was Paris, and I loved it, but of all the places we’ve been thus far, it was Prague that sneaked right in and stole my heart!! That being said, I’ve never been to Venice. I’d sure love to go though. 🙂 And you’re right about the bubble. I have one friend like that…and my mom. She won’t fly, period, ever. And that’s okay. But I wish she would… I think she’d love it if she did.
