I love to travel. Whenever I get the chance, I go for it. Growing up, I remember traveling a lot with my family and all the fun adventures we would go on. Since I grew up in California, we would travel up the coast a lot, we would head down to Disneyland, over the grapevine, each year we would go to conventions and they would my sister and I with them. I remember going to Muir Woods, The Redwoods, Yosemite. It brings back so many memories.
For all you Californians, remember the walk-through tree?
One of my favorite memories growing up is when my parents would take us to the different beaches along the California coast. We would go to Bodega Bay, Monterey, Carmel, Santa Cruz. We even went to Glass Beach, where you could find handfuls upon handfuls of sea glass.
It’s amazing how much I can remember about all the trips that my family went on. Now that I am older and have a child of my own, I wonder how much she will remember. Will she think they are special? Will she remember them when she is older?
