Summer is the best time to let down our hair and take advantage of the season of travel that the typical school cycle affords us. Most people experience an eagerness and yearning for freedom when June rolls around, regardless of our age.
When younger, I would enjoy those long summer hours, swimming and playing outside with friends, creating our own storylines and exploring new places around my home. Now as an older woman, I look forward to travel all around the world with my family and friends. Currently, I am exploring Rome and Italy!
There’s just something about travel that makes us feel REMARKABLE. I think because we are out of our normal, typically mundane life and work, and living eyes wide open to new places, people, foods, and experiences. We get a bigger perspective on our own little piece of the world and ideally some inspiration we can take home to adopt into our way of living.
We tend to approach each morning on a vacation with the attitude of, “What am I going to get to do and see today?!” It’s always a positive expectation.
So, if you can make it happen, I’d recommend making travel a high priority in your life. Even if it’s a weekend day trip to a local State Park, Historic Site or new glamping spot – it’s worth the effort to block off the time on your calendar and hit the road. I bet you will feel refreshed, restored, and more remarkable than ever!
