Get Up And Go

 My flight out of Charlotte - jaw dropping, right?

My flight out of Charlotte - jaw dropping, right?

Travel is almost always on my mind. It has been for as long as I can remember.

My entire family was bitten by the travel bug at an early age and we have been traveling together and separately ever since. The only time I'm not planning my next trip is while I am in the act of traveling itself. 

There is something so calming about stepping onto the plane. Reaching up into the sky and knowing that you are headed somewhere new and different. Somewhere completely foreign to you, but not for very much longer. Catching that flight means you are one step closer to the experience you've been yearning for - at least that's how it feels for me. 

This month I am checking out a new country, Portugal. It's my first international trip of 2018, although certainly not the last.  

If you need me, I'll be in the clouds, on the beaches and wandering the cities. I'll be diving deep into local food, drinks, activities and culture. I'll be dreaming up new ways to bring the experience home with me. I'll be dreaming up new ways of sharing it with you. Perhaps a new pin, patch or design. Perhaps a new card. Perhaps something completely new - straight from my heart to yours.
