I have felt for a while that I have been searching for something. It is a strange feeling for someone who, by all appearances, has everything anyone could ask for; a wonderful husband, healthy children, a warm and beautiful home, a loving family, the ability and desire to help others, the joy of adventure and so much more! I am truly blessed and I lead an extraordinary life. I couldn’t put my finger on it – it wasn’t as though something was “missing”, but maybe misplaced or underexplored….and for a few years I have yearned to share with the world some of my passions – one of those is travel.
As a teacher by trade and life long learner by default, I have an innate desire to share with people the things that bring me joy; that fill up my senses, as John Denver would say. I have been reluctant to take the leap – that journey towards inner peace and fulfillment can be a rough one and one that I wasn’t sure I was ready to take on. But in the back of my mind a single song kept playing over and over. The song is by one of my favorite bands – Switchfoot. Their song, Live it Well, reminds me to be true to myself. In doing so, I have taken on this journey and have become a travel planner and writer. I hope to use this blog to not only share with people the destinations of my travels, but the journeys to get there, and the sum of these two important parts. It’s not just about the journey or the destination – it’s about how they change you for the better. Life is short….don’t miss out!
Good company in a journey makes the way seem shorter. — Izaak Walton
