There are three things I know for sure: I’m not done traveling; I want my kids to travel with us; I don’t want to wait.

I am still lusting after Morocco and Cuba, but it doesn’t stop me from making my list longer and finding new destinations that I would like to explore. I’m always amazed at the new places I discover through National Geographic, Instagram and just by sheer luck while stumbling around the internet.

For some reason I also read a lot of inspirational travel quotes and here are a few of my favourites:
