i am restless. ready to travel again. ready to take my canon and capture new colors. new faces. new things.
i never saw myself as someone who wanted to travel just to experience life.
i wished i had always felt this way. i wonder how many more trips i would have taken thus far.
we plan on travelling with our boys a lot. across the country. across the world. we don't want them to think their world is what is immediately around them. we love our country, but it is not all there is.
there is a whole big wide world out there and we want our boys to experience it. to know they are a part of a big planet with different colors and faces and tastes.
some would say travel is a luxury. i would say it's important. i would suggest that plucking you and your family out of it's comfort zone is a must and i would say you should make it a priority.
save. scrape. pinch. tighten. sacrifice elsewhere and make it happen.
tsh talks a lot about this in her book, Notes From a Blue Bike which I just finished. i so appreciated her perspective on it all, including the money parts.
there was much more to the book than traveling with your kids- so go pick it up if your heart longs for living simpler.
i have a passport. it's been stamped once. i am ready for another.
