This is the motto my husband lives by. He works for himself, sometimes putting in 16 hour days. He believes the only thing he will never regret spending money on, is travel.

When I met him, I had barely been anywhere. But Saul’s an adventurer at heart. He likes to go new places and see new things.

We have a huge map of the world in our office and we put pins all over it, of the places we have visited. His goal is to see the whole world. I could keep going back to Italy.

He’s an adrenaline junkie and thinks we are getting older and extreme activities might be something we won’t be able to do in a few years. So he set about planning a holiday that has me scared shitless.

Today we head to New Zealand and Australia. We are going to be hanging off the tallest building in Auckland, bungee jumping, ATVing, going down category 5 rapids, hiking through Hobbitland and crossing the Sydney Bridge.

And did I mention I have vertigo and I’m extremely risk averse? But here is the thing. Saul was a trooper, about using all our travel time to go to Lucca these past 2 years, instead of seeing new places.

So I am going to man up and try be a good sport about it. There is no guarantee I won’t pee my pants and cry, but I am going to put on a brave face.

It’s been a crazy busy year, filled with so many wonderful things. But I’m beyond burnt out. So I’m going to unplug from social media so I can recharge. I want to spend quality time with my family this vacation.

But I’ll share tons of photos once I return from my trip. Wishing you a wonderful Xmas filled with love, light and blessings. See you on the other side my loves
