Traveling now has become our part of life. There are many different reasons that people choose to travel. Whatever your reason for traveling, it is always important to enjoy your trip by relaxing and sampling as much of the country and its culture as possible.
My mother lugged her suitcase, as well as my own Mickey Mouse suitcase, behind her as we made our way through the airport in 1997. I wore hideously patterned short, a basic white t-shirt with a Disney character etched into the front and clung to my Minnie Mouse stuffed character tightly. We were about to embark on every three-year-olds dream vacation.
There aren’t many memories that are still engraved in my memory from my first formal vacation. I remember fleeting moments, such as flying high above the clouds on an amusement park ride and swimming in a warm lagoon.

I’ve flown throughout the states, my farthest journey to date being San Francisco, and I’ve flown internationally. It would seem as though I have been raised to chase flights.
