Travel

As young 20-something newlyweds, we kept our adventures limited to North America and the Caribbean. Rather than use money to galavant around Europe or tour Asia, we chose to invest our money in real estate. While we don’t regret our financial decision, we do wish we would have used some of the money to go on at least one overseas trip. Now that we’re in our thirties with a couple of children added to the mix, our priorities have shifted and we no longer dream of a lavish house or shiny new baubles. Instead, we fantasize about adventures throughout the world (while still being fiscally responsible, of course).

Because our children are still young and we’re a single-income family (for now), our excursions are limited to road-trips and the occasional air travel. But we still do our best to get around as much as our resources allow. Below is a sampling of some of our adventures –
