I developed a love for traveling at a tender age. I give all credit to my step-father, whom has always had a love for traveling. Traveling gave me experiences that I’ll cherish for a lifetime. It taught me lessons that couldn’t be seen from a different person’s perspective in a classroom, only my own. It helped foster a love for history, as well as an appreciation for architecture, landscape, culture, food, and art. Traveling has also helped me broaden my perspective, value the things that are often taken for granted, and generally taught me what textbooks could not.
Certainly, travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent, in the ideas of living. – Mary Ritter Beard
My step-father may had gifted me the love for traveling, but it was my mother that taught me the value of a dollar as a child. Traveling and saving money both go hand-in-hand since traveling can be an enriching, yet costly experience. Understanding the importance of the value of a dollar can help you save hundreds, or even thousands of dollars in the long run! One of my favorite ways of stretching out my traveling budget is taking advantage of hotel rewards programs like IHG Share Forever Rewards.
My family and I are looking forward to the summer since we have many fun-filled adventures that await us! One place that we’re hoping to visit is Portland, Oregon. I also wouldn’t mind visiting New Orleans again. There was too much territory that was left unexplored when I visited New Orleans last summer, especially after I hyperextend my left leg from all of the walking I did!
