Salutations fellow travel devotees! The intention of this site is to provide motivation, insight, information, and desire, all within a collective group of traveling enthusiasts. People sharing this ideal have at some point embraced the idea that this world harbors a vast array of incredible destinations to offer. My love of travel has been innate and I hope to never fully quench my thirst of it. I should thank my dad for taking us on some wonderful trips, proving and ingraining within us that there is a world beyond Huntington, WV. Some of us are not able to travel but love to hear and dream about it. Others are given plentiful opportunities to see the world. You are on this Earth for a short while-revel in its splendor.
Due to the fact that I am stuck in the house on this very warm, ninety degree-something day, there is no better time to grow acquainted with my newborn website. Whether one mosies on down the road to the neighbor’s house for a spell, or is off to Djarkhan, there is a story to tell, an experience witnessed that would undoubtedly peak the interest of another.
I have traveled to a handful of countries-Japan, France, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Greece, England, Austria, Slovenia, Mexico, and a few others. As I am approaching thirty-nine I am illustrating a humble travel background. Then again, would I not be obnoxious and annoying if I were to boast about the hundred plus countries I only wish I’d ventured? My husband has visited over fifty countries and I am irrationally envious, yet grateful for what I have seen. Constantly nagging in my head is the beckoning of the rest of the world, welcoming me to tread upon it. On the other hand, when I think of travel, country stomping is not what it is all about. During the summer of 2010, we drove from WV to Alaska and back, tent camping a good portion of it. This was my present for finally getting my Master’s degree. Why would I have the desire to be cooped up in a car with three kids and a griping husband? Read my book once it is published to find out. Yes, I will from time to time be shamelessly plugging my book.
This is about the experience of the individual, and the affect it has over those whom have an interest to hear about it. I am equally as intrigued by a West Virginian friend who grew up camping along the Greenbrier River every summer, as I am about another friend who was held up by guerrillas while traversing across Belize. In fact, after camping all over the US, my very favorite campground remains Pipestem State Park in WV. Just last weekend we were camping there and I mentioned to my husband what a shame it would have been had we not known about Pipestem. I was thinking of all of the beautiful memories we have created over the years while camping at what we consider to be the crown jewel of WV. This is why it is imperative that you share your travel experiences, regardless of its modest nature, for many of us would never know otherwise.
My favorite thing in this entire world is to travel with my husband and three precious children. These moments and memories are cherished, whether the trip was a disastrous failure or one close to perfection.
When we take a trip to the beach, the Peruvian falls, the worst campground in history, I’ll let you know. I hope you enjoy as we embark on our journey together.
