I love to travel. We started out taking trips close to home and through the years we have become more savvy travelers and have extended the breadth of our travel to different countries and continents. I have realized there is a big difference between a vacation and an adventure. So, we mix our travel with vacations and adventures. For me, an adventure starts with research on our hoped for destination on the Internet and in multiple guidebooks. An adventure usually includes an itinerary and a GPS and days packed full of sites to see or things to do. For me a vacation requires less research, includes a good book and not very many plans -- just lazy and relaxing days.
