Yippe!! Hooray!! What a time to be alive!
Another day older means you are another year wiser.
Well, at least that’s how the saying goes.
Spring is the time of year all of the flowers bloom and babies are born. Heck even I was born around this time of year! The air is warmer and moods are happier (or at least more content). I love the feeling of hope i get during the warmer seasons. People are planning get-togethers simply to enjoy the weather with each other.
That being said, this past weekend, as we all know was Memorial Day weekend. I had a surprise visit from my family and we went to the Cincinnati zoo. Now do I have my reservations about peering inquisitively at exotic animals captured from their surroundings and forced to stay in a tiny glass cage that simulates their natural habitat, yes. But, in another sense I also admire the effort that zoos put in showcasing what the world has to offer. Some of us aren’t as lucky as other to travel the world exploring the jungle or going on an African safari. Now I won’t go off and knock those two items off my bucket list just because I went to the zoo, but I do enjoy the education we are provided at $17 a ticket.
Each year I have noticed that many people use Memorial Day to kick off their summer. It’s usually the first grill out/ pool party for most families. It really sets the tone for the regions who just thawed out and want to get their heatwave on. Even though my family didn’t grill out but rather took an excursion through the zoo, I found that fitting for us.
I love to travel. My passion is where my heart leads me and my heart won’t rest until it has seen and experienced everything it can handle. A trip to the zoo can really trigger that travel bug that resides in me. It allows me to channel my inner Steve Erwin/ Jeff Corwin, if you will.
This is the time I want to introduce a promise I made myself. This is my travel blog. This is where I will record my travels inspired by little outings like my zoo trip. If you are intrigued by travel and want to follow me on my explorations, please stay tuned in.
