Why I Love To Travel - I just love to travel. I have been lucky in that I have been able to do a lot of it in the last few years. I have been able to go to 11 countries and 30 states. When I was growing up we didn't travel very much. We usually only went to see my Grandparents in Arizona. It wasn't that my parents didn't want to travel. I guess they just wanted to save money so we did more local trips.
When I was 19 I got my first taste of traveling. I went to Washington DC for the week with a friend of mine. We had such a good time. We got to see almost everything. It was an amazing trip and I knew after I returned home that I loved to travel. The next trip I went on was a trip to Canada when I was 21. I went with my boyfriend at the time. We went during the wintertime so we got to check out some of the local winter sports. We were able to check out a dog sled race.
As soon as we got back from Canada, I started saving for my next vacation. I knew if I didn't make it a priority, I would spend my money on something else. I started making a list of all the places I wanted to go. My next trip was when I was 22. I was able to go to Brazil for the week. I had a friend from college whose cousin lived over there. I was able to stay with her. I got to see so many amazing things on that trip. When I was 24 I was able to go to Ireland for my honeymoon. We got to stay there for eight days. It was a perfect trip. We were able to see a lot of the countryside and talk with a lot of the local people.
When I was 26 my husband and I went on our first cruise. On this trip we were able to visit six different countries. We went to Italy, Greece, Egypt, Turkey, Malta and Spain. We got to see so many different countries and cultures on that trip. We are now saving for a trip to Australia. We both have always wanted to go there. As it is rather expensive it is going to take a while to have the money to do it. It will be worth it. We are already making plans about what we want to see while we are there. We are hoping to be able to visit for three months. It all depends on how much time we can both get off work. We don't plan on having any children until after we go on that trip.
I love traveling because I love seeing other parts of the world. I love to see how a different culture or part of the countries lives. Our world might seem big but it is really small when you think about it. I hope I continue to travel until I can no longer physically do so.
