My Love For Travel

In 2017 I was in the middle of a divorce after being married for 26 years. It was a very dark and difficult part of my life.  I was 46 years old and had married a guy I had dated since I was 16 years old.

A good friend invited me to go to the beach with her family.  I was overjoyed and accepted. It was so good to be with her and her children.  It definitely took my mind off things.  A few days into the trip her stepbrother flew in from Utah.  I had met him very briefly in 2006 but had not had a conversation with him.

He was interesting, funny and very handsome. We talked and walked on the beach.  When the vacation was over he went back to Utah and I came back home to NC. We developed a friendship and talked on the phone almost every night.

By the fall of 2017, he had talked me into flying to SLC and driving to Yellowstone. I had never been on a plane before. I traveled alone from NC to Atlanta and then on to SLC. I landed and we drove to Jackson, Wyoming.  The next morning we drove to West Yellowstone.

The trip was incredible.  He had been to Yellowstone so often that he was a perfect tour guide. I flew back to NC realizing that I loved to travel and I wanted to see as many places as I possibly could.  It was not long until I was back on a Delta plane again.

Stay tuned for more stories on the beautiful places I have been lucky to visit.
