How many times have you said "I want to go there or I want to do that," but have yet to put action to that thought? Well, don't feel bad because that was me for forever and ever up until last year when I finally decided to make traveling a priority in my life! I would hear stories and see pictures of my friends or people who I've met who have traveled the world, yet the furthest I've gone was only Mexico. And that doesn't really count when you're from California. After I decided to make traveling a priority I basically watched my money, spent less on things I didn't really need, started packing lunch for work, etc. I also roughly estimated how much I would need for the two trips I want to take this year and started saving a set dollar amount each paycheck. And now I am set to go to Peru and Bolivia in less than two weeks now! So if you're in the same shoes and have always wanted to go somewhere (Machu Picchu for me), then make that commitment today and start making strides toward that goal! Happy Monday, everyone!
