The downside to travel is once you’ve gotten accustomed to the thrill of running, hiking, eating, exploring new places…well home can seem a tad hum drum.
Don’t get me wrong, I am a home body and LOVE to enjoy time here with David. I don’t need to go out during the week or feel the need to constantly talk to people. But traveling once a month seems good for my whole outlook, maybe it’s because I work from home…I need to be freed once a month to shake off the cobwebs!
POUND THE ALARM
Oh, oh, oh, come fill my glass up a little more
We ’bout to get up, and burn this floor
You know we getting hotter, and hotter
Well thank you Miss Minaji for setting the tone for my fun announcements!!!! I was starting to notice my calendar looking a little barren…just a trip to Iceland? Geez that’s all I have to look forward to. I kid. Mostly. Kind of.
Bex then came at me with this amazing mantra focusing on growing business and it reminded me to re-frame not only what matters, but what I expect. The results… well now here’s my travel schedule:
Aug – My birthday month, planning a local weekend getaway
Sept – Iceland and Caribbean Cruise
Oct – Czech Republic
Nov – Guatemala (99%)
Dec – I’m totally out of vacation, but maybe we can visit family!
Jan – We should be moving…fingers crossed.
The pro and con of all this travel is the black hole of planning which I seem to get sucked in to! I get so excited about what’s coming that I can’t decide which things to do first…hence the benefit of the press trips!
Plus oh YEAH I spend my whole week writing about travel, so I’ve learned all kinds of tips and tricks and can parlay my research in to really helpful articles.
TRAVEL TIPSY DO DAH
Lately I’ve been cranking out stories over on Vacation.com and I thought a few of them might be useful for you guys. Ok tooting my own horn they are useful, but these especially.
