…and more!

Before traveling, I always read a few books. Novels, non-fiction, whatever will give me a feel for the place I’ll be visiting. I’m currently making my way through The Longest Day, which tells the story of the Normandy invasion. The author has combined a series of interviews to describe the day’s events from multiple points of view. Each perspective adds vibrant color that brings the day alive.

Ok, this is starting to sound like a book review, so I’ll end it here.

Part of the fun of traveling is the anticipation. Before your next trip, pick up a book, watch a movie, or check out YouTube to make planning almost as fun as the actual trip.

Safe Travels,
