I was young still. I had just graduated high school. I had never been outside of the US and here I was jetsetting to Japan. I fell in love. I truly, truly did. I soaked up every ounce of what this new culture had to offer. We had tea with my sister's students, we went to Tokyo Tower (similar to the Eiffel Tower but in Tokyo-duh!), we visited the aftermath of the nuclear bombings in Hiroshima.

So, this blog is my small-time travel outlet. A reason to continue exploring. It's easy to make excuses about not having time and not having money and not having time (yes, I know I said that twice). But here's the deal. I want to make time. I don't want to always be too busy that we can't enjoy the outdoors and can't adventure to places yet unseen.
Robby is truly a good sport about the whole deal. Heck, I think I've even gotten him into the habit of several vacays a year (yay me!). I hope this continues. I hope we can instill the love of travel and exploration into Olivia's life. I hope we always make time for family adventures.
So, I wanna know...
What was the one vacation that made you fall in love with travel?
