Seems the end of the year is the best time to reflect on many things. At one years close with the start of a New Years possibilities; my mind seems to awaken my thoughts of where I have been and where I will go! So reflect with me for a minute-Where did you travel this past year? Then think-What was your best trip? What made this trip so memorable? Would you like to travel to this destination again?
Travel in the last century has come so far. I have an Aunt Jerene who has had the wonderful privilege of traveling to over 100 countries. She always talked about her trips and everything sounded so mesmerizing. This must be where I inherited my sense of curiosity and adventure to want to go to various locations. I love reading the map and brochures of where we will go.
Two of my favorite trips in 2005 include Spring Break and an
Anniversary Trip. The first one was in
One of my other favorite trips was last summer taking a road trip
with my husband. We headed up north winding through roads less traveled. Our jaunt was
only for a long weekend, but we drove when we wanted and stopped when we wanted. Leaving
roads of traffic congestion and stop lights during our adventure seemed to step us back to
an era gone by. Driving along the
I get weekly Emails from Travel Places. Some seem so exotic, romantic, or a wonderful family vacation. No matter where the destination, to me the time spent with family and making memories is as wonderful as the trip itself.

Travel was considered for trade in the Old and New Testament. Motives for travel were trade first, colonization, exploration, migration, pilgrimage, preaching, and also exile. Ways of travel included land and sea. The main way to travel then was by foot. Usually the person was barefoot or had shoes or sandals. Shoes were made of soft leather, while sandals were made of harder leather. The sandals were worn for rougher wear. The sole was created of wood, cane, and sometimes bark of the palm tree which was fastened to the leather by nails. They were tied about the feet with thongs, or shoe latchets. It was customary to have two pairs, especially on a journey. (This is planning ahead on a trip.)
I have heard a companys logo saying-Travel should take you places. Exactly that is what travel is all about! Travel is a state of mind or to be transformed during Bible times or especially now. The important thing to remember is to take God with you when you travel on business or on vacation. He never seems to take a day off from us; God is our constant companion. Enjoy this great world; explore all the states or countries-1 of them or all of them wherever you are allowed to go. This world is so beautiful and Gods majesty is shown throughout His creation; whatever the season-enjoy its beauty.
Remember-its not the destination its the journey that is important!
