Have I Always Had the Travel Bug?

Looking back over my 46 years of life (I'm not afraid of my age), I think now perhaps there's always been a part of me that wanted to get up and go - travel. As I child the only vacation I remember our family taking was driving to the Grand Canyon. Many times dad just … Continue reading »
