Life is too damn short, make it an adventure!

That’s basically my philosophy in a nutshell. Life is too damn short! In my years (2 decades) of working with people and their finances, it was common to hear people’s dreams of travel, yet there was commonly a barrier for people to take the leap and just go. So, I am hoping that my stories, pictures and adventures will help to inspire you to “just go”. There will never be the perfect time, so go ahead and make the call, pack up the bags, get ready to see new sights, try new foods and create an amazing adventure and memory.

When I was younger, I packed up my bags and moved to Alaska for an adventure that lasted 6 years before moving back to Minnesota. That, my friends, was just the beginning. Since that time I have been fortunate to visit such amazing places as Ireland, Sweden, Denmark, Russia, Italy, Greece, Egypt, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, Antigua and Barbuda just to name a few.

I’m starting a little late in the game with this blog thing, so have some patience. I am going to post previous trips and activities to the best of my recollection and then stay on track as we move forward with future adventures. So keep checking back to get caught up on previous adventures as well as adventures that are still to be had! I would love to hear your stories and recommendations as well.

    • Thank you so much! I have only been writing a blog for a couple of weeks now so I am actually learning as I go. Right now I am writing from memory but I do have a couple upcoming trips in which I will write about places, food, adventures, people, culture, etc as they happen. I am looking forward to that. Any thoughts or ideas to improve are always welcome and feel free to share the blog. Thanks again. I appreciate your time in writing a comment!
