Three words that describe why we should travel?

Inspiration, growth, and fulfillment


  • It is absolutely an opportunity. If used correctly, it can help us become better writers and provide our readers exactly what they’re looking for. If we are lazy with it, we will have our jobs taken out from under our feet.

  • A few years back, my family took an RV trip across the country and back. I really enjoyed our travels on Route 66. Sure some spots were kitschy, but that’s what made it fun. The nostalgia of an America of the past was evident in every roadside attraction.
