Where in the world have we been?! That’s right. What magical places have we traveled to and where do we want to go next? For Emily, traveling began at a young age with family trips to Mexico, Canada, and annual road trips to Florida to visit family. For Betsy, traveling came much later in her life and has been an opportunity to celebrate life and explore the world outside of the home (and town) she grew up in.
Now that we’re both older (and wiser?), our traveling whims have changed. But one thing is for sure, we both agree on what constitutes a vacation (relaxing, sleeping, eating) versus an actual trip (exploring, itineraries, work).
We want to hear from you!
