Today’s post happens to fall on Christmas Eve! So, I’d like to wish all my readers near and far a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year too. Because of the holiday, there will be no regular post today. Catch you next year!
Another year is coming to an end, which is really hard to believe. It is always fun to write up these end-of-year travel reviews to reflect back on the year gone by. And, what a wonderful travel year we had! As in years past, we believe it is possible to travel big without quitting our […]
