“Does that say 0 degrees?” said our son Jack, reading the temperature on the dashboard as we buckled our seatbelts and my husband, Chris started the car. It was a blustery, snowy afternoon and we were freezing, but excited because we were headed somewhere we knew it would be 70 and sunny. Somewhere magical. Florida. It was a very cold midwestern February here in Edwardsville and we were all in need of some vitamin D. Visions of palm trees were dancing in our heads!
The anticipation of a trip is one of the best things in life. For me, the excitement leading up to a trip is almost like the excitement my kids feel about the upcoming Christmas holiday. And much like Christmas, travel takes a lot of planning and preparation to execute successfully.
