When I was younger we didn’t travel much. With immigrant parents working diligently to somehow attain the American Dream, we just didn’t have the means to go anywhere. That’s not to say I didn’t have an amazing childhood, we just didn’t get to travel. But I didn’t know what I was missing either. Then I got older and I realized how much more there was to see out there. I got a consulting job right out of college and traveling became my life. Instead of dreading the Monday to Friday commute out of state like most of my colleagues, I welcomed them. The smell of the airport, the arrival and departure announcements over the speakers, all the people going or coming from somewhere exciting, it gave me such a sense of adventure. I was grateful to go to big other big cities like Chicago and New York, but even got excited for smaller cities like Cleveland and Virginia. It didn’t matter where I was going, just that I was going somewhere new. Traveling for work led to more traveling for vacations and luxury escapes. Now being a more seasoned traveler, I am grateful to be able to go and explore other places and to share those memories and experiences with my children. I know we won’t make it everywhere on my list, but we won’t stop trying.

Awww Amy thank you so much! Consulting was fun and glamourous at times, but definitely the travel took a toll. In fact, the first year and a half of my marriage, I only saw my hubbie on the weekends! I can’t wait to travel more with the family though and see the world through my kids’ eyes now.
