Thankful to be able to Travel

My closer at Stewart Title always visits family for vacations, and always tell me - "wish I could take trips to a different destination".    She has a lot of family, and that is how they spend their vacations.    I am just the opposite, don't have any family, so plan trips to destinations that intrigue me.

 

Sometimes as we age, traveling is not so easy, if you have troubles walking, or breathing in high altitude locations.    I know the airline traveling part is frustrating often times, especially when detours, delays or cancellations happen.    When you have allotted only so many days per City, and that gets changed, it can throw off a vacation.

 

There are places I have been where many of my friends/colleagues said they would never travel to.   Costa Rica was one of them.   Bugs, scorpions, alligators, iguanas and mosquitoes turned them off.    I was intrigued by the different kinds of monkeys we saw, and some came pretty close to our group.    The howler monkey and White-headed monkeys were fun to see.  We don't get to see these in Denver, unless you visit the zoo.    Did you know Costa Rica has over 200 volcanoes?   A few are still active, and one erupted a couple days before I got there, and was lucky to land with ash in the air.    Have never been to a coffee plantation before either, and was fun to see the process, the fields and how they harvest the beans.

 

There are only three States that I have not been to - Idaho, Montana and Vermont, which could happen in the near future.

 

I love the Caribbean islands, and have been to a few several times either directly flying or via a cruise ship.    After the recent Hurricanes, not sure they look the same.

 

Back several years a lender friend had just gotten divorced, and she wanted to do a trip to Europe - what fun!  Two weeks, four countries, and so much laughter, we were crying at times!    Lots of culture, photos, and memories!

 

When I flew to Montreal a few years ago to spend a long weekend, everyone I met said, if you love our City, you should visit Quebec City.   They said it was very French, smaller, but very quaint.   I went this past summer, and LOVED it.

 

Working on 2019's vacation now, and not quite sure where it will be.    Need to know my business will be providing income, so I can schedule an annual vacation.   I usually got one a year, but try to make it a good one.

 

The business has been very good over the last several years, and thankful I can travel.   I always said - I only work, so I can travel!

Joyce Marsh, Daytona Beach Florida I TRY to take vacations when it is quieter in my market, but never fails that a buyer or seller (or many) need something.   I have one-two REALTOR friends watch my business, and is covered, no matter where I am.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® even though everyone was from the U.S. on the Costa Rica tour, I keep in touch with several of them still through FB.   You are lucky to be able to do both types of travel.

Nina Hollander when I was married, the husband wanted only to go on cruises.  I want to see other parts of the world too.   I understand if you have done lots of travel, it isn't much fun anymore.

Joan, we use to travel a lot. But not so much now, and I am okay with that. We take small trips and like this better now that we are getting older.

Hi Joan... it's not that I don't like seeing new places and things... it's the process of getting to those places and back that has worn thin for me.

Rebecca, traveling does exhaust you, especially when there are delays or cancellations.

Nina Hollander the process is a problem at times.   This past year I thought renting a car and seeing lots on the ground would be easier.  Until I had a flat in the middle of NOWHERE without a jack or a spare.

You really get around!  That's the upside of not having family to visit on every special occasion. Travelling to new places is usually a lot of fun and I hope you get to try something new in 2019.
