T is for Travel

History, culture, and architecture have always struck my fancy. So it is no wonder that travel- a means to see, feel, hear, taste, and experience these things- is so dear to my heart.

Copenhagen, Denmark

Although I’ve been successful in my career (my day job, or, the “thing I do other than write”), my wanderlust has always been strong and I knew that if I wanted to see the world…really, truly see it, I would need to get creative. There would not be enough vacations in my lifetime to see all I wanted to see.

I started learning ways to monopolize on business trips. If I was going to Romania, and my plane ticket was cheaper if I took an overnight in Vienna, then it was a win/win for everyone. Where I saw opportunities to see something new, I seized them. And along the way, I learned some tricks for seeing more with less time, and getting creative with the time you do have.

Vienna, Austria

These experiences have inspired me to write travel guides so that others who share the desire to see as much of the world as possible in what short amount of time we have on this planet, might find them and take something useful away on their own voyages.

So far, I’ve been to 17 countries, and most US states. I have written, or will be writing, guides for most of these countries, and some of the states as well.

I’ve replicated this post as its own page called Travel Guides, which can be accessed by the main page navigation at the side and top.

My old passport on the left, and new on the right. The pages were full so I had to renew early.

    1. They key is just to do so creatively! I’m willing to sacrifice long stays in places so I can see more places. Of course, you miss out on some things that way, so it balances out 🙂

    1. You definitely start to pick up better travel habits, that’s for sure. I went from being a girl who has to pack her entire wardrobe, to one who would rather look less fashionable but be more agile. I hope to one day be able to look back at the list of places I’ve not been and have it be a smaller one than the places I have 🙂
