Dream Destination...




















One of my dreams is to visit Morocco.  I think it looks so beautiful and spicy and bright.  Wouldn't it be amazing to travel across the world to Africa and explore an entirely different culture?  I would love it!  Then, I could just hop on over to the Rock of Gibraltar and Spain, right?

I was having coffee with a good friend on Sunday, and we were talking about travel, money, moving, and life.  She said something to me that she had read in an article once, "People who spend their money on experiences rather than things are usually happier."  She and another friend planned, in only a few days, a spur of the moment trip to the West Coast and are really taking that to heart.  I love that quote and  have thought of it often since Sunday.  Why not settle for a small, modest home with just the things you need and spend your extra time and money on travel and experience?
That's what Landon and I are hoping to do.

Where would you love to visit outside of your home country?

Have a wonderful Thursday friends!

This is so good! I totally agree and try to accomplish this in my own life. Be prepared for those who do not understand and label you as "irresponsible"...and don't listen to them! Secretly they wish they could live that way too! :)

I love that quote! My fiance and I live by the same thing, or try to at least :)

So funny you wrote about Morocco, I was just thinking a few hours ago how much I would LOVE to go there!
