I am a traveler at heart so I tend to enjoy nearly every place I visit. For me, there is just something about exploring a new place and learning about a different culture that is just exhilarating. Because of this, I am actually focusing a lot more of my efforts in the travel industry.
Every country is different and every continent is different.
I have visited both Canada and Mexico in North America and have traveled quite a bit in the United States. Cancun, Mexico was where my wife and I went for our honeymoon and I have already had the desire to go back.
My first trip outside of the U.S. was a trip to Guatemala with my Dad and sister where we studied Spanish for a month. It was quite a culture shock but we got to experience lots of cool stuff including hiking up an active volcano!
After that, my family moved to Panama for 8 months which is where I really learned to speak Spanish much better and it was a very great experience.
As a teenager, my family lived in Nicaragua, Central America so that country holds a special place in my heart having lived there for over 4 years.
While living in the area, I also visited Costa Rica and Honduras, both unique in their own perspective.
Since moving back to the States, I have also visited the country of Uruguay in South America, and Bulgaria in Europe.
Bulgaria was an interesting experience for me as it was a lot different than the culture I was used to, but the history and natural beauty of the country were absolutely amazing.
On the way back from Uruguay, we had a layover in Colombia and left the airport for a few hours. Those few hours were all it took and now I can’t wait for a chance to visit there for a longer period of time.
Next on the travel plans is a trip to Peru in July. Also, my wife is from the Philippines and we really want to get a chance to go down there. To meet her family primarily, but also because it is said to be a beautiful country!
My wife and I are also working on a plan to travel all 50 states in a unique way and is something we are really looking forward to and have plans to start as early as September.
As you can see, we really love to travel!
On a side note, my family is actually packing as we speak with plans to move to Botswana on March 27. So who knows, maybe someday in the near future I may end up in your neck of the woods!
