A blog to document my travels makes perfect sense! I don’t know why I didn’t think of this sooner. What better way to share my experiences with friends and family, as well as catalogue my experiences for my own nostalgic purposes. Better late than never, I suppose. But now I have to decide if I should retroactively post my travels from the previous decade…or only move forward from this point on.

My passion for travel began over a decade ago while I was in the military and stationed in Germany. It was incredible to be able to hop in the car and be in another country in just a few hours. I lived in Germany for 3 years and during that time I made use of any opportunity I had to travel. I wasn’t able to make it to all of the countries in Europe, but I definitely knocked out a good chunk. It is a personal goal to see as much of this world as I possibly can in the short amount of time that I am here. To say I was bit by the travel bug is an understatement. For me, the travel bug is like a good parasite and we have a symbiotic relationship in which travel benefits us both. Making time and saving money for new travel destinations is a top priority for me. I would rather wear inexpensive clothes and drive a modest car in order to allow myself a visit to at least one new country every year. I feel like I have already been to so many countries, but there is still way too much white on the map below for my liking. While no destinations are ever off-limits for me, sometimes I can be quite the travel snob! I am not referring to luxury vs. roughing it here. I’m more of an international travel snob. Typically, I will turn my nose up at opportunities for domestic travel, always preferring a new stamp on my passport instead. I realize the United States have many wonderful things to see, but I can save them for when I am older. Don’t judge me.

    Dayna, it’s great to see you blogging again! I’m looking forward to seeing your entries from Ireland! If you get enthusiastic, you should blog about some of your previous trips. What did you see in Egypt?

    • I spent the majority of the time in Cairo, did an evening Nile River Cruise and also spent a few nights at a great hotel on the Red Sea. I can’t remember the name of the area though. Went to several museums in Cairo, and of course rode a camel around the pyramids.
