After taking a trip to Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks in 2014, Craig and I realized how much of the US we had not seen yet. The amazing parts. I used to be a travel agent for many years, so we spent a lot of our vacation time at all-inclusives in Mexico and the Caribbean, on cruises and at Walt Disney World. At tourist spots like New York City and San Diego. I needed to experience the places I was selling. While we have loved all of our trips and do not regret taking them, we do regret waiting so long to see our national parks. Seeing a place like Yellowstone for the first time can be life changing. To know places like that are out there will change you. The only other trips that have come close are sites we have seen in Europe and the ruins in Mexico.
Our national park trips have made us long to see so much more of the world. It is frustrating to have a small amount of vacation time, but we are grateful for what we do have. Still, our dream is to save as much as we can, retire early and full time travel in an Airstream. We would love to travel for a few years, see everything we want to see and find some land to build a small home or cabin on. By small we are thinking under 750sf. We love the 25 foot and 27 foot Airstreams. An older one that is in good shape would be great too. Hopefully we will have one soon!
What are your travel dreams?
