My whole family and I have that travel bug. We all love to get out of town, see the world, and try new things. This page is dedicated to sharing my experience on many of those trips. I haven’t done a great job of tracking and cataloguing my adventures in the past, so with this format I’d like to accomplish 3 things:
- keep better track of the trips that I’ve gone on – the food, destinations, highlights, and lowlights;
- take more pictures while traveling and curate and caption them; and
- have a centralized place to share my adventures with friends, family, or just those who are curious!
All that said, I’m not sure how capable I am of getting a hold of many of these photos and details retroactively. So, I’ll include a brief summary of these trips and start compiling what I can of these trips. Here is a breakdown of my international travel in chronological order:
- Dominican Republic – Summer 2006 – The only family trip on the list! To celebrate my grandparents’ 50th anniversary, the whole family went to Punta Cana. I don’t remember much about the trip, but I had a great time.
- Mexico – Summer 2010 – Two weeks in Mexico City and two weeks on the beach in Acapulco.
- Germany – Fall 2011 – Kaiserslautern for Thanksgiving break. My cousin worked as a civilian employee of the Rammstein airforce base and she, with the help of her two Rhodesian ridgebacks, showed me around the area. The Christmas markets, castles, and venison were incredible highlights! The unexpectedly strong beer caused some problems during the trip…
- Canada – Spring 2012 – One week in Montreal, Quebec! I wanted a less crowded spring break destination, so I headed north instead of south. The night life is great, the poutine is incredible, and there’s plenty to see and do all day, including climbing the city’s namesake: Mount Royal. No need to pack a swimsuit!
