“Without new experiences, something inside of us sleeps. The sleeper must awaken.” – Frank Herbert
With our one year anniversary approaching, we began to realized that we had not yet gone on our honeymoon, or any kind if trip we could consider our honeymoon!! Every bit of travel we have done in the past year has been for our lovely friends or for work.
We have been talking about where we wanted to go for quite some time... Costa Rica...St. Lucia...Nicaragua (Little and Big Corn Island)...Cabo...the list goes on!!
Last weekend I decided we needed to put our foot down and book our trip... After much research, I found a couple of great options - Barcelona and Ibiza, Iceland and Barcelona, Greece....completely different options from what we had started talking about!! I just figured if a flight to St. Lucia is almost $1000, why not fly across the world for just a little bit more ?!
So, we decided on a trip for September, and we couldn't be more thrilled!! We are headed to both Greece (Athens and Santorini) and Turkey (Istanbul). I am excited to research these countries and talk with people who have all ready been for good travel advice.
Traveling can really put your life in an entirely different and/or new perspective. This is what Israel did for me - I recommend leaving the country and exploring this world when you can ! It is wonderful to travel and be out of your element... Travels always become more interesting when you realize how much you have in common with people living in other countries - or just how different your lives may be. You may at times even feel WITHIN your element when travelling; this has always been very eye-opening to me.
