Day 139 – Thankful for Travel Books

“You know what the three most exciting sounds in the world are?   …Anchor chains, plane motors, and train whistles.” – George Bailey, It’s a Wonderful Life

Amongst the things I love most in this world are my family, my friends, creating things, and vacations!  Travel is far and away one of my favorite hobbies.  As I re-work my dream list of 100+ things I want to do before I die there’s an overwhelming number of vacations on there.  There’s so many on the list that I am wondering if I should have two different lists, one travel based and one everything else 🙂

Today’s mail included the latest travel book, one on the Cayman Islands.  When I snuck out of the office for lunch I just found a quiet place to park the car and read for about 20 minutes, soaking in as much info as I could.  Anyone who would have walked by would’ve wondered why the crazy red headed stepchild was smiling so big!


That big smile is what got today’s blog going…  While the travel itself is always awesome, the travel book does such a great job of helping to build even more anticipation.  Like today, reading about great snorkeling areas, swimming and kayaking in bioluminescent ocean water, and visiting Stingray City – Hell Yeah!!!!  I’m ready!!!

Thanks for building anticipation and excitement today travel guide, you put a huge smile on my face!
