Welcome to the first entry of my first blog, "Latitude 21." The above quote pretty much sums up my inspiration for beginning these posts. I'm finally following through on my desire to share comments and helpful tips (at least I HOPE they're helpful) - with people seeking extraordinary travels. It takes courage to express yourself in any setting, but putting your thoughts in writing and sharing them with the world is truly a daring adventure for me. The internet - for all its ability to connect us - is not always a kind place. But I'm digging deep to be brave and together, we'll see what happens. My goal is to inspire people to travel more and explore this beautiful world of ours; if I receive some criticism along the way, I guess that comes with the territory. So, bring it on, trolls! Not really. Please show kindness and respect, even when you disagree. Anything less will not be tolerated.
You may be able to guess why I'm calling the blog "Latitude 21," or perhaps not. Either way, I will return later today or early tomorrow with the background on the name. Thank you for joining me on this adventure in progress.
I'm a professional travel consultant and the owner of ILLUMINATION VACATIONS, a boutique travel agency in Davis, CA. It is a full-service agency, but I specialize in trips to the Hawaiian islands, and all-inclusive resorts in Mexico and the Caribbean.
