I love travel. I know I say it (too) often, but it is such a part of who I am. We’re nurturing this love in our kids too. This summer, we will be going to South Africa to spend time with our family. We are also planning one week in Botswana – I can’t wait to see the Okavango Delta – and we are watching videos about Botswana together to prepare for our visit.

The photo above was taken in San Cristóbal de las Casas, in Chiapas, Mexico, when we lived there in 2010 and attended a language school. The woman was carrying a heavy load, and I sensed she has a hard life, one we can’t even imagine.

When traveling, I love to eat the local food. New foods, new flavors, new smells: it all adds up to a “new way of seeing things” for me. And I love it.

What do you love about travel?
