My name is Gary and up until a few years ago, I had only been out of the country 3 times in my life.
My partner Alexis has always loved to travel but for me, life just kept getting in the way. I kept finding excuses not to go. I never had the time.
Then I turned 37….
On my 37th birthday, I started to see my 40’s rushing towards me and said to myself “Self, when you look back on your 40th birthday, are you going to be happy with what you see?”.
Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that my life has been bad, it hasn’t but if I had one regret, it was always that I had never travelled.
I kept saying to myself, I wish I had done that when I was younger, when I was free of commitments and work and… well let’s just say, I had loads of excuses.
And that is what they were, excuses. I realised, there is always enough time if you really want to.
So we booked a trip to Italy and I fell in love. I fell in love with the people, the culture, the food, the lifestyle… I loved it so much, we’ve returned to Italy multiple times since.
From then on I was hooked. I love travel, I love learning some of the lingo and connecting with the places and people. I at last see what Alexis was telling me for all those years.
If you want to do it too – Just Do It!
Here on the blog, Alexis and I will share our hints and tips on places to go and how to make the most of the places that you travel. We hope you enjoy the journey, who knows, we may even see you out there some time.
