The other day I was looking at my travel bucket list. This list has been ongoing and ever-changing since I started in this business 23 years ago. I keep trading it in for larger buckets in order to keep if from overflowing.
Sometimes I ask myself why I need to travel so much. Yes, I have to do a certain amount of travel for my job. Who wants to work with a travel agent that doesn’t travel? But traveling to foreign lands and experiencing different cultures is just something I have to do. I’d rather drive my car one car for one more year and hold off on new carpeting in order to take off on another jet plane. I figure when I’m old and wrinkled I’d rather have the travel memories.
One place that’s been on my list for a long time is Venice, Italy. I’ve been to Florence and Rome but not Venice. How have I managed to elude this wonderful city for so long? After reading yet another article on Venice I decided last week that I just couldn’t take it anymore and I booked a ticket to Italy. Now the fun part comes in, planning my week in this fabulous country. The possibilities are endless but I know that I’ll end my adventure in Venice.
