Last week the hubs and I had our very first vacay without the kids. It was 3 days and 2 nights of pure quiet! It was just the twof of us, the cows, fire flies and hummingbirds.
We didn’t take off to anywhere exoctic. We rented a cabin in the hill country here in Texas. But that made me realize we never really had the chance to travel much less have a honeymoon. In between raising kids, working and life itself, we never gave it much thought.
Now that our kid are grown and we’re more in control of our schedule we can take off on a whim or plan a real vacay to the many beautiful places in this world.
When we are traveling, we learn many things. New places open our minds to new cultures and new horizons. We learn how to find our way in a completely new place, how to plan for things to go wrong and fix them by ourselves, and simply step out of our comfort zone into the comfort of the remaining of the world.
But, the sweetest traveling experience of them all is the one we spend with the people we love.
