Becoming a Traveler

I LOVE to travel. I never really did as a kid. We traveled to visit family in Ohio and around the state of New Mexico for my swim meets. That was it.

But I think subconsciously I knew I would love to travel. When I was in my 8th grade technology class, we all had to research a career that we wanted to pursue. I wanted to complete my paper and research on being a flight attendant. I was stopped by my teacher and was told to pick a different career because there were "reach requirements" for flight attendants. I was too short to become a flight attendant. Looks like now in 2017 airlines have made it easier for us short folk to get a job. But back in 8th grade, not so much! For those of you wondering, I did my paper and research on another career: Interior Designer. Very laughable. I would really have to learn a lot to be good at that job...

Anyway, I was at work the other day and someone asked me “How did you get into travel?" My response was pretty simple “I just went.” Throughout this conversation, this person began to tell me about what a hard life they had and travel was not an option for them. I told her that everyone in life has "setbacks." But I told him I truly believe that you can steer your own life in the direction that is right for you.
My husband was really someone who has shaped me in so many ways, but especially in travel. I know people solo travel, but I started to travel when I met him and we love travelling together and hope to do that for a very long time. Kevin traveling with me has changed not only how I perceive life, but has also given me a much greater appreciation for everything that I learn and experience while traveling the world.

Over the past five years being married, I have had the opportunity to explore Calgary, Cinque Terre, Bahamas, MauiCancun and more! These are locations as a kid that I could have never dreamed of experiencing. Even places like Zion National Park which seemed so far away have been amazing to visit. 

One thing I do know from my travel experiences is that the world can be a beautiful place full of inspiration.

I hope our travel experiences help inspire you.
