Summer is just about upon us. But with all the stories about airport and travel nightmares, even the best of us may become "The Reluctant Traveler". Even thought it may be tough to focus on the destination while being bumped and jostled along the way, we can assure you, its worth it.
Stepping out of our comfort zones and embracing new adventures is a gateway to adding a layer of excitement and fulfillment to our journeys and dare we say it, even life. While it can be tempting to stick to what is familiar and comfortable, pushing ourselves to go to new places and to try new things opens up a literal world of possibilities.
Whether your next trip is for business or pleasure, take a moment to search out a new adventure. Join a yoga class under water in the Maldives, zipline in Costa Rica, bike through New England countryside, enjoy a culinary farm to table meal in the foothills of the Great Smoky Mountains or sleep in tented luxury listening to the exotic language of the colorful birds nesting in the trees. Breaking free from routine exploring cultures, cuisines and activities, will ignite the true essence of your life journey, leaving you with stories to cherish for a lifetime.
So step away from that comfort zone this summer and step up for unusual, off the beaten path adventures. You'll be glad you did. Happy Summer!
