This week I learned the importance of leveling up. I like many people, are perfectly happy doing things which I know how to do.There is something satisfying about completing activities well.This week, I am headed off to Colorado to do something I don’t do well, skiing.
In fact, I believe I have skied a total of 5 times before heading out here.Three of which were when I was in junior high.Needless to say, I am not a skier.Continue reading “Leveling Up”
With today being national plan your vacation day, I thought it might be fun to review by 2020 travel plans.
There are so many places I would love to travel to this year. My list of places I would love to go to is a mile long! The problem is finding both the time and money to go. If only I could win the lottery!Continue reading “2020 Travel Plans”
I seem to have lost my voice.Not my real voice, my family can attest to the fact I can indeed speak, but I just haven’t had anything to say.
I am not certain what happened.I think it happened when I took a solo trip out to California in February!I know!Four whole months have gone by and I just haven’t had anything to say!Continue reading “Voice”
Today, is a sea day on the ship, but yesterday we explored the amazing island of Curacao.It is part of what is called the ABC Islands off the cost of South America. This cruise hit two of the three islands, since yesterday we were in Aruba. Some day, I will need to go back and see Bonaire.
We hopped off the ship first thing in the morning and went on a planned excursion.Our tour guide happily answered questions about education, employment and life on the island while we drove to the first stop on the excursion.Continue reading “Exploring Carucao”
Up Early again on the ship and we are pulling into our second port of the cruise.Yesterday we were in Aruba.Let me just say, there is nothing negative I can say about Aruba.It is just as beautiful as you imagine it would be.The water is incredibly blue and the beaches are pure white.
I am pretty sure I can see a coming back to spend a whole week on those beaches. May be some of the most beautiful beaches I have ever seen.And I heard there are more incredible beaches on the other side of the island. There just wasn’t enough time to explore the whole island.
As we were driving to the airport my son asked if I was in vacation mode yet.My husband answered that I would not be in vacation mode until after I made it through security at the airport, always a stress point for me.
I replied my brain went on vacation mode several days before. You know the feeling when you are at work and you start to daydream about sunny days at a beach.I would like to think I was productive my last few days at work, but I probably wasn’t.
I think it is because traveling gives us permission to explore.It gives us permission to ask questions. How often do we get to live in child-like wonder of the world?Where you can ask questions to strangers? The fun of travel is that we all live in the world of curiosity.
