Our first blog post! Sorry, just a little excited! It was a slow transition for us to delve into our little travel blog. Our first international trip was to Italy in 2016 and it almost didn’t happen.
We, like so many of you, did not think travel to Europe was in the realm of possibility. Our honeymoon destinations were limited to the continental United States.
We are planners that make lists to detail activities, compare pros and cons, create bucket lists, etc. One day, just for kicks, we looked up flights to Rome. Do you know it is cheaper to fly to Europe than it is to fly from New York to California?! Yeah, neither did we.
We both work in the financial world, so out came the spreadsheets to tally the costs. Hotels are incredibly affordable in Europe. We have spent more money for a motel in a small New York mountain village than we did for a boutique hotel in the heart of Rome.
We continued the research waiting for the catch, because surely there must be one. Nope, we never found one. Instead, we went on the most amazing honeymoon in the most romantic city in the world.
We found ourselves telling anyone that would listen that they can travel there too. This incredible gift of experience is something that everyone should know. Now, here we are, sharing on this platform to shout from the roof tops that YOU CAN TRAVEL TOO!
Our goal for this blog is to share with you some of what we’ve learned in our own travels, whether it’s local, national or international. You can expect two blog posts each month along with a podcast episode that will feature some of our friends describing their own traveling experiences.
We hope you’ll laugh along with us as we share all of our adventures and learn what not to do from our hilarious mishaps. But mostly, we hope you gain an understanding that traveling is for everyone and it’s not as out of reach as you might think.
Thanks for joining us, and remember, #neverstopplanning.
