What I’m doing now that I’m not traveling

Does not traveling mean I’m counting the seconds until we can fly internationally again? Yes or no. I’m not going to lie. It would be awesome to step on a plane tomorrow.

Millennials and How We Are Changing Travel

Millennials are defined as “members of the generation born between 1981 and 1996” (Wikipedia). I fall into that category. I want to talk about millenials and how we are changing travel. Millennials Aren’t Waiting for Retirement to Travel Life is short. We won’t wait until we’re 65 years old to travel. You spend most of your life working.
