Mother-Daughter or Besties; Why You Should Take THAT Trip

Updated: Jun 12, 2019

"At Least Once a Year, Go Someplace You've Never Been Before"

It all started quite unexpectedly as a one-time vacation arising out of a desire to 'be there' for my sister during a time in her life when her world was rock to its core. Her husband, the love of her life to whom she'd been married for 14 years, passed away after a very short illness. Anyone who has lost a loved one knows there comes that time after a loved one passes on and all the friends and support begin to disappear, business is supposed to get back to normal and you're supposed to return to your usual routine raveling with my sister

=first trip was johannesburg and cape town with a trip to a 3 day, 2 night safari; 2 weeks

=second trip to Maui - Mt Haleakala; whale watching; sun bathing; rented a red convertible mustang

=feeding our spirit

=We learn so much more about each other; likes, dislikes, idiosyncracies, annoyances, morning vs. night person; chipper first thing in the am or don't talk to me until I've had some coffee
