The Gift of Travel!

The cards, the surprises, the flowers....the love and the smiles......it is Valentine's Day :-) I  like to think of a day when we try and be extra nice to the people we love :-) I think the best gift my husband and I have given each other is "each other" and our kids :-)  However, I must add the Gift of travel to the list!!

Yes, I like to think of it as a very special gift. We both truly enjoy travelling. Over the years, the one thing we always agree on is the desire to see the world! The endless discussions about where to go......the excitement and thrill of planning the trip....running to the library to get the guide books....fighting over what to see when we get there :-) It is all part of the fun :-) Our trips have gotten more kid friendly since my children were born. We may not travel as frequently as we would like to.......but the journey continues!

I want to pass on this gift to my kids. I hope they grow up to enjoy it as much as we both do:-) Here are a few pictures of our trip to Bali in 2010. This Valentine's day, it is this Gift of Travel that makes me smile :-)

Have a lovely day.

The lush green fields..................




The city getting ready for a major festival................




The sweet lady who I coaxed and persuaded to make me this lovely stand in a smaller size so that I could carry it on the plane :-) I spotted her working by the side of the road. We pulled the car over and started chatting with her.........
