What is one tip you'd give to someone who never traveled outside of their country: The biggest thing we have learned the last 2 years is to live your dream - now. Don't wait until a better time comes along to fulfil your dreams and to travel. You never know what is going to happen in the future. If you want to go and travel but you don't have enough time or money, start by making smaller trips. There are so many great flight deals out there that make it worthwhile to explore a new country even if it's just for a week or even less. In the end, you can get a great taste of what a country is like by just spending a few days there and you can decide if you want to go back for a longer trip.
What is your favorite thing about traveling: We love everything about traveling! The planning, anticipation, getting on a plane or in the car, and exploring the destination. We love learning and seeing new things, interacting with people from different cultures, and trying new cuisines. The world is such a beautiful place, we would love to see it all!

Favorite country you visited: Thailand
What is one tip you'd give to someone who never traveled outside of their country: In the future you will be disappointed only from the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. World is beautiful & it’s open for you so why you shouldn’t explore it ?
What is your favorite thing about traveling: Exploring new cultures, food, tastes, meeting amazing people, coming back home, and knowing that somewhere in the world there are people with the most beautiful hearts.
Cherise is literally our travel inspiration! Her and her hubs have traveled all around and always take the best photos! Especially drone shots :)

What is one tip you'd give to someone who never traveled outside of their country: Start small with a short trip to a nearby country with a friend or loved one. Taking on a big trip for your first endeavor out of the country can be daunting, and it’s okay to work your way up to it!
What is your favorite thing about traveling: Travel helps open your eyes to other cultures and makes you a more understanding, empathetic, thoughtful and flexible person. It also enriched your life and makes you feel so blessed to be alive!
Chas and her hubs Brad, are the perfect description of travel couple duo! Not only do they take the most gorgeous photos, but they have so much fun doing it!
Favorite country you visited: Namibia
What is one tip you'd give to someone who never traveled outside of their country: It's not as scary, hard, or expensive as it seems! As someone who grew up around people who have never even left the state, I KNOW traveling abroad seems so intimidating. I remember begging all of my friends, my ex boyfriend, family, if they would book a trip abroad with me. I so desperately wanted to travel, but it seemed like no one else wanted to do it with me... so you know what I did? I went by my DANG self and I had the most life changing experience!
What is your favorite thing about traveling: I love how much it's changed me and opened my mind and heart to others. I grew up in a really conservative, small, religious, town and to be honest, I used to be pretty closed minded. Traveling has really opened my eyes to the fact that there are SO many different ways to live life and NONE of them are wrong!

What is one tip you'd give to someone who never traveled outside of their country: Don’t be afraid and take the leap to travel! It opens your mind and heart in ways other things cannot.
What is your favorite thing about traveling: Exploring new cultures and finding a different piece of me in each country.

From: Vancouver, Canada
Favorite country you visited: Japan
What is one tip you'd give to someone who never traveled outside of their country: I think it’s to just take the leap of faith! Some people are scared or don’t want to spend the money now and would rather save and travel later but you don’t know what kind of curve balls life throws at you. Better to take the trip now and enjoy life rather than getting sick in the future and you can’t go anywhere!

What is one tip you'd give to someone who never traveled outside of their country: I think it’s so important to learn about a completely different country than your own. Not only do you get to experience unique beauty and learn about the world, but you grow so much as a person and become way more understanding of people and the way in which others live their lives.
What is your favorite thing about traveling: My favourite thing about travelling is just being blown away by such beauty in so many different forms. The world has so much to offer and I just love the feeling of exploring a new place for the first time and getting that feeling of “wow! I’m actually here”.
