World Traveling

{cup of apple tea on my desk}

One of the hidden benefits of Brad's and my jobs is that we have the opportunity to scratch our itch for wanderlust by traversing the globe. We'll log plenty of miles over the next 30 days in particular... I'm leaving Sunday for a four-day trip to Vancouver for a meeting. The next day I head to Europe and Africa for two weeks with Brad for his job. A couple of days after I return from that trip, it's off to Chicago and then New York City, then I have my fingers crossed that I'll be able to go to Japan for a product launch.

While visions of four continents in 30 days dance in my head, I know I'll look forward to some quiet time in November. That time of year makes me crave pumpkin spice lattes, cable-knit blankets, hats... Trite, perhaps, but oh so satisfying during cozy autumn weather. Brad and I also celebrate our anniversary and his birthday during the fall, and we typically go to his parents' house in San Miguel de Allende for Thanksgiving.

What are your favorite fall traditions?

I'm so jealous about all your upcoming adventures. You must take pictures and blog about all of your travel locations!

My favorite tradition? Putting away my flip flops and sandals and breaking out the fall boots. :)

Lighting a fire in the fireplace and getting cozy in front of a good movie or football game, haha! :) Miss you Katheter!

I love wearing long sleeved stuff, sweaters, etc and smelling the air when it's crisp. It totally lifts my mood! Happy for your travel plans-- take lots of pics!

Damn. That is awesome! I wish my job had those kinds of perks. But I do like to travel. Went to Greece in July. Went to Spain and Portugal last year. Would be nice if my company paid for those trips. :)
