|Us on our way to Paraguay in 2010. We'll be back there in July!|
The hustle and bustle of the airport// Do you ever wonder where all those people are going? What their story is? I love people watching at the airport and it's cool to think we are all there for the same reasons...to travel, visit people we love, explore new places...
Visit the local zoo or museum// If you're going to another country, you should definitely check out their zoo! Or stop by a local botanical garden or museum. Immerse yourself in their culture and learn as much as you can while you're there. Sure, you can read about it, but nothing compares to actually seeing it up close and personal.
|Both pictures are from Iguazu Falls in Brazil.|
Typical touristy stuff// Sure the locals hate it, but finding the top touristy things to do is always my favorite. I mean, why not?? Make a checklist before you travel of the places you have to go to and try to go to as many as you can!

Trying new things// The last time my family went to Paraguay, I tried ziplining. I was really scared at first (I don't like heights) but it ended up being a lot of fun, and a memorable experience we'll never forget. Conquer your fears and just do it!
|Or try something low-key, like paddle boating :) This was in the Baltimore Inner Harbor|
New weather// It was really cool to go to San Francisco and experience the famous "fog." It's also cool to go to Paraguay in the winter time, and have it be over 100 degrees there because it's summer in the southern hemisphere. Just research what the weather will be ahead of time so you are ready for it!
Exploring state parks and trails// Wildlife and nature is totally different in different areas of the country (or other countries)...duh...so get outside! Go to a state park and go for a hike. I went to a park in Northern California along the Pacific Coast Highway and watched the sunset. Amazing.
