WHY TRAVELING IS IMPORTANT TO ME

WHY TRAVELING IS IMPORTANT TO ME

This week I was all set to chronicle our trip to Paris but as I sat at the computer I started to reflect on what it all meant to me. Why did I love travelling so much and why did it evoke so much emotion in me when I travelled? Well I am going to share two very personal reasons why travelling means so much to me. Growing up I never thought we were poor. Thinking back to my childhood days I still don’t. If we were to analyze it from a strictly economic stand point using all the creditworthy

OUR MAIDEN VOYAGE: THE FINAL CHAPTER

Having had our fill of Covent Gardens, we hopped back on to the Piccadilly line and got off at the next stop which was Leicester Square. Leicester Square is to London what Hollywood is to Los Angeles, home of movie premiers, theaters, shopping and night life. I was there for the theaters.

Once done with the Leicester Square we walked west and soon reached Piccadilly Circus. Piccadilly Circus is to London what

So here we were, in the well-appointed bar at Kings Cross Station. I perused the menu trying to remember fries were chips here and chips were crisps and bangers were sausages and the pound was equal to 1.7 dollars. Which meant the bangers and mash meal cost 12 x 1.7…sigh! never-mind. I was too tired and excited to worry about it all. I ordered a curry, declined an adult beverage on account that I wanted to keep my wits about me when I met my mother in law. We set about consuming our chosen meals while plotting our train route

Every relationship has milestones. Like the first time you spend the night at your boyfriends/girlfriends place, or when you decide to move in together or even the first time you fart in front of your partner. All these milestones usually signify a progression in the relationship. Moving, for example, presents a lot of challenges and stressful situations. Everything from all the planning necessary to the physical effort and team work needed to make it work. These situations can expose a flawed relationship like a referee on a foul play. Traveling together, I feel, is one of these milestones. Traveling tells
