Happy Holidays Travelers!
It’s that time of the year! Christmas lights, holiday spirit, caroling, and yes, holiday shopping. We’ll sit and rack our minds about what gifts are suitable for our family and friends, and we all end up with socks. But what is the perfect gift? A gift that will show them how much you appreciate and love them, something both unforgettable and worthwhile: Travel!
I’m a pretty easy person to shop for, and honestly, I am pleased with a good pair of holiday socks, but my favorite gift is incomparable. It’s the gift of travel. Most years, my dad will help send me on a trip somewhere, and every year, it’s memorable. I take my little sister on weekend getaway trips for her birthday, and every year, it’s memorable. And the best part is looking back and remembering where we traveled the last year, what we did, and the fun we had.
You’ve probably heard that travel is the only thing that you buy that makes you richer, and any traveler will tell you, it’s true.
Thanks for reading!

Hello. I’m Brittany, and I like to travel. I enjoy sharing photos and telling stories about the places I’ve been and the experiences I’ve had. After graduating college, I backpacked Europe alone. Some would say I’m a bold traveler, but I feel like I’m just getting started. I tend to attract colorful situations, so I hope you enjoy what you read!
