Happy National High Five Day – April 20th

National High Five Day Hello everyone. Today I want to step away from my normal travel blog post and share something related to my other passion, sports.  When people think about 4/20 and what it represents, they may not realize or think that it’s also National High Five day. Did you know that? I didn’t, but apparently it is. Since I didn’t know much about its origination, I decided to do a little research and share this info in a post. There are many origin stories of the high five, but the two most documented candidates are Dusty Baker and Glenn Burke of the Los Angeles Dodgers and Wiley Brown and Derek Smith of the Louisville Cardinals.  Continue reading Happy National High Five Day – April 20th

Never Give Up Hope! Perseverance Is Vital!

HopeToday I wanted to share how I was felling over the weekend as I look at going back to work on Monday. I am thankful and blessed for my job, and I enjoy what I do (thank you to my co-workers for the appreciation). However, I do have some bigger dreams and they aren’t in a cube surrounded by other people in cubes. I want to explore the world and see what else is out there to see. I created this blog mostly for fun, but it has made my sense of wanderlust much worse, lol. I can only keep plugging away at my dreams, and hope that one day they will come true.

Travel Vaccinations – Worth the Hassle and Expense?

I am looking forward to visiting Thailand and a few others places in Southeast Asia one day, and it made me think about what shots if any are suggested or required before visiting. After doing some research it looks like I am good to go, with a few suggestions.  There are a lot of questions about vaccinations, however this doesn’t only apply to travel. We have friends who had never vaccinated their child who was turning 5 and getting ready to go to school. I don’t know how it all worked out, as they moved out of state. However I don’t think people are able to get around the “medical reasons” or religious reasons anymore. I may be wrong, but it won’t work when trying to travel. Thus I wanted to share this post about getting or not getting vaccinated before traveling to certain countries. Continue reading Travel Vaccinations – Worth the Hassle and Expense?
