Stemmed from my sister and I talking about our first trip traveling around Europe together, the memories came flooding back.  Never sad moments only bouts of laughter and disbelief as to what could really happen and does happen when find yourself abroad in a city you can't pronounce.  So here it is…travel, travel, travel, and then travel some more. You'll never forget it--because in every city, every town, there will be a new experience just waiting to fill your treasure trove of memories. Whether it be discovering your favorite place in the world to visit--or the time you ended up on the middle of nowhereville and won't be heading there again.  Life is too short not to experience this wonderful planet we live in.  From Copenhagen to Shanghai to seeing the Alps in person---cross the pacific and the atlantic….see it, do it, live it.   It's a new year with with a plethora of opportunities.  You have absolutely nothing to lose and everything to gain.  Trust me on this one.

That's totally understandable with two little ones. I was able to travel with work for quite some time when I first started out. I took advantage of it and now I'll always have the bug.

Traveling with the kids would be fun, imagine how they would see the world? :) xo.

I am right there with you on this. Jon and I always talk about our travels to Barcelona our first year of dating. The memories always put me in the mood to go somewhere- anywhere. ugh if life "circumstances" just weren't in the way - we would have traveled the world a million times over. :)

Isn't it funny how we left that little thing called life get in the way instead of incorporating it into our life? I was lucky early on, I worked for a company that paid me to travel--then tac on a vacation here and there and you have seen places were otherwise never would have. I miss it. My passport is screaming my name so hopefully in 2014 it will be stamped quite a bit :) xo.
