By |February 2nd, 2017|Life, Travel Tales|0 Comments

I don’t know about anyone else but I find that the more I travel, the more I want to travel. Like, I’ll visit somewhere new but then end up adding 10 more entries to the list of places I want to travel to. It’s like a never-ending circle.

I’ll be the first person to admit that I have travel on the brain. I think about travel more times a day than I can count. I look up flights to different places at least 3-4 times per week and I love reading about exotic destinations.
