You Should Travel: If Not the Flakes Trip, Somewhere
"We want to go with you guys one of these years!"
That is one of the most common things I have said to me every year, especially when it's close to the departure date.
I hope you go with us while we're still taking our trips each year. But, more importantly, I hope you go somewhere.
I can honestly tell you that had it not have been for this promotion, I would not have been to all the warm weather vacation destinations that I have been fortunate enough to go to. Knowing me like I do, I would guess that I may have gone to a Cancun resort once or twice. But I certainly wouldn't have gone every year.
But back to my point about you traveling. I hope that you have a "Dream Destination". And I hope you get to go see it in person someday. But life is what happens while you're making plans. And it doesn't always work out for folks.
After seeing some of the islands in the Caribbean, I promise you that someday I'll go back. I'd like to spend some more time in St. Johns, Honduras, St. Lucia, and the Bahamas.
In fact, I met a couple one year in St. Johns who were a pair of retired teachers who put their time in, got their retirement all set, and moved to a warmer place and took folks snorkeling on their boat. Make a little money, meet a few folks. That doesn't look too bad to me.
I haven't thought about them in years. I can't recall their names. But I do remember they smiled a lot. It's the little things you remember from traveling.
