Living the Dream: 4 Step Program

One of the most common sayings I run across on almost a daily basis is, "Living the Dream!" and to be frank the phrase brings more questions to my mind than I am comfortable with.

"Traveling.. it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller." – Ibn Battuta Those three words.. I'm going travelling. Exciting, yet becomes a nerve racking process of planning, packing and getting all your ducks in a row. A good start with travelling and preparing for each trip is making it part of ones lifestyle, just like saving for retirement or going to… Continue reading Tickets 4 Two
