When I first started dating my husband, Paul, we decided to drive cross-country together. I was itching to leave my job and try something new, and since Paul had the summer off, it seemed like the perfect idea. Off we went in a Jeep Wrangler with two bags of clothes, our chocolate lab, and ourselves. It was insane. We survived on fast food and slept in Super 8 motels. Our air conditioning stopped working during the four-hour drive through 105° Utah. There were laughs, tears, a broken ankle, a broken down car, and an almost-breakup during one heated argument. But, as adventures always go, looking back, it was one of the greatest experiences of my life.
Four years later, Paul and I have visited some amazing places—mostly together, though some on my own, for work or with friends. And the list of places we still want to explore keeps growing: Greece, Italy (again...and again...), Morocco, Australia, Corsica, Honduras, ...
For us, travel is about seeing each city or country as the locals do. Going off the beaten path, taking endless amounts of photos, and eating at mom-and-pop restaurants. It energizes and grounds you, all at once.
I’m curious—do you have a passion for travel? What are your favorite places to visit, and what’s next on your list of must-sees?
