POTD - Passport

Traveling is my passion. My world travels began during my 2nd year of college when I started dating a German guy. He eventually went home, as expected, and we decided to do the long distance thing. During our time together I got to visit Germany 3 times, for about a month each visit. We traveled throughout Germany, and to England, France, and Holland. I caught the travel bug. I believe that everyone comes into your life for a reason. I feel that his purpose in my journey was to show me that there is SO much more to see than Pennsylvania. To teach me to embrace differences in other cultures, to be intrigued by the vast size of our world, and to have a constant desire to see more and learn more.

Now I'm continually plagued by travel dreams... always anticipating our next trip. There are so many places I'd like to go, I couldn't even begin to list them. Kev and I have been lucky... thanks to his mother we've been able to experience some of the world together during the past few years. We've visited Costa Rica, Spain, Italy, and Mexico. I feel blessed for our adventures together... I think that you really get to know a person when you get to see how they react outside their element. And we have so many amazing vacation memories. I'm crossing my fingers for Greece for our anniversary trip... ahhhh, Santorini....

Being from a military family, I can appreciate your love for travel. That first shot is great texture. I LOVE Germany, especially Bittberg (sp) Anyway...I don't travel as much anymore with kids, but...wow-you make me miss it more than anything! You should name everywhere you've been so I can REALLY get jealous;)

Cool entry. I love to travel as well, though we've been mostly in the US, we have gone to Italy and Jamaica. Hey, even getting away for the weekend to the Adoriondacks is refreshing and invigorating for me!
