on travel, my parents, and why i'm grateful for both

When you grow up on a small island, as I did, with parents who love adventure, as my parents did, it means that from a very early age -- infancy, in fact -- your parents will ensure that you not only have a passport, but that you use it.  My parents made it their mission to take my sister and I off the island of Trinidad at least once a year.  The distance we traveled from home was directly proportional to the amount of money they had saved in any given year -- sometimes it was a quick hop to a neighbouring island, but sometimes it was to someplace more far-flung -- but we always went somewhere.

I'm talking about why I love travel over at Bliss Your Heart -- please stop by and take a look.
