I meant to post this last month…Amsterdam, Mallorca, and Rome

It’s crazy how we can only connect the dots looking back and not forward. At any rate, two years ago I was traveling for a week out west in Maui, Hawaii. Some of you may remember that blog from here. In all honesty, how could you or I forget those beautiful sights?

Fast forward to last month, I spent ten days from July 19 — July 29 traveling around three countries in Europe for the first time ever with my better half Lynn. We checked off Amsterdam, Mallorca, and Rome from our travel list!

I don’t mean to reshare any of these pictures or post to brag, it’s merely part of the process since I got caught up and haven’t been able to write until now.

Fun fact, on November 10, 2014, I was first issued my passport in Washington, PA. I never used it until last month, which needless to say I was excited to finally get stamped a few times.

Traveling and flying have become such a joy, passion and excitement of mine during the past four going on five years now. It doesn’t matter if it’s for work, business, or vacation, I have thoroughly enjoyed every second of it whether I’ve expressed that or not.

Albeit some aspects of travel can be stressful and, financially speaking, a lot of dollars or euros, I’ve found that you’ll never be able to get that precious time back at the end of the day.

That’s why whatever trip you’re thinking and dreaming of (or saving up for), you just have to do it. Plan it, execute on it and have the time of your life!

As humans we were all made to roam, explore new lands, travel and see breathtaking sights all around the world. You can do the same exact thing because it’s not something that’s only reserved for the “elite” or “wealthy.”

The time freedom is 100% worth it at the end of the day. Money is something that can always be replaced but those memories can not.
