But I digress...
When I met Eric, we were both pretty broke college students. And we would be broke for a looooong time. Ha! But we still found ways to travel, to move, to adventure. Even trips-gone-wrong turned into great memories. Like the time we were supposed to fly to Florida for a long weekend, but the snow cancelled our flight, so we rented a car and headed for a B&B in Vermont instead. For hours we hung our heads out the windows of the car, trying to see the road through the onslaught of snow! It was scary, and needless to say, we didn't make it to Vermont. Instead, we ended up near Holy Oak, Mass, at a Motel 6, where the hotel staff shared their chili with us and we went swimming in our clothes in the indoor pool.
My all-time favorite non-touristy trip was to Sandals this past February in Great Exuma, Bahamas. Wow. So incredibly beautiful. So much so actually, that in September, we're moving closer to it! That's right -- we're off on another adventure all because of a week spent in the Bahamas. And once we're settled there and saving lots of money as a result of moving OUT of NYC, we'll be off and running again, putting pins in our map of places we want to visit around the world. Thankfully, our 2-year-old has that same wanderlust that we do. Unlike most toddlers, our little girl is best behaved on an airplane, and she adores hotels (especially the Doubletree, but who can blame her?? Those cookies are cramazing!!)
But what about you? Do you love to travel? Do you embrace change, spontaneity and adventure? Or do you prefer to stay rooted in the familiar? What are some of your favorite places to visit or your most memorable trips?
