If you know the Sokol’s at all you know we take our travel and leisure VERY seriously.
Before I met my hubs (we just celebrated our 8 year anniversary) I really hadn’t been anywhere, because I thought travel was a lot of work, was expensive and probably over-rated. In college, I thought my friends who wanted to go study abroad were completely nuts.
I freely admit that I was just wrong. Wrong, wrong, wrong.
My hubs has instilled in me a LOVE of traveling, thinking about traveling, planning travel or even hearing about other people’s travel. I also credit my father-in-law Charlie who in 2007 invited us to spend a week in Maui Hawaii at their time share condo. We could barely afford it, but that week in Maui changed me forever. Seeing Charlie vacation was an awakening for what can be accomplished while on a weeks’ vacation.
After my life went kinda dark with postpartum depression, thinking about, planning and actually taking trips were one of my favorite pleasant events that helped in my recovery from the blues.
With this in mind, I am creating a new category on The Vocal Sokol. It’s called Vocal Travels. My hope is for this section will detail our many adventures at home and abroad. We LOVE to travel far and near.
I hope that seeing our adventures will inspire you to take trips or plan adventures you otherwise might have put off.
We make such magical memories as a family going new places together, visiting places we LOVE, and generally exploring the world.
Here’s a sneak peak at some of the destinations you’ll see me post about in the coming weeks and months. Some are unique locations, others are not. I hope each post will provide tips or ideas that would be useful to anyone planning a trip to these destinations.
