You’re on Vacation, Give it a Try!
Keeping this blog has made me more conscious of what makes a good vacation and how travel affects our everyday lives. For most of us it’s novelty that makes travel so compelling. It takes us out of our everyday routine and offers the chance to take risks and try new things.
Travel Offers the Chance to Practice Trying Something New
Some of my most courageous accomplishments this year took place in theme parks. Thanks to my daughter, I found the guts to ride the Hollywood Rip Ride Rockit at Universal Studios Florida, and Disney World’s Tower of Terror. For years I had avoided these rides.
But once I had conquered the first ride, I knew I could handle a lot more than I had given myself credit for. Many times I’ve thought back to the feeling of being strapped into that roller coaster and the exhilaration of overcoming my fear. Taking risks takes practice – practice that presents itself in a million ways when we travel.Taking risks takes practice.Click To Tweet
Any vacation can offer a chance to practice being brave. Whether it’s a roller coaster, a ride on a zip line, or discovering the ocean through a snorkeling mask, these experiences shape our everyday lives and change us for the better.

It is a pleasure and privilege sharing my experiences with you, and I hope they inspire you to try something courageous and bring that bravery into your life. Thanks for joining me on this journey.
