FUELING A LOVE OF TRAVEL

Everyone has something that they love to do, something that drives and motivates them. In my case, that something is travel. Whether taking a weekend trip down to Kentucky for some horse racing or flying across the Atlantic to explore Europe, I love to get out and see new places. I also enjoy returning to familiar places I love, like New Orleans, which is my favorite place to visit. When I was younger, I played a lot of rugby, which gave me some great opportunities outside the United States. My team traveled a lot, and I have particularly vivid memories

of playing foreign teams in the British Isles back in 2000. We had matches in Ireland, England, Wales, and Scotland, and we stuck around for the Rugby World Cup that was happening in Cardiff, Wales, that year. Oddly enough, we ran into a lot of rugby teams we’d played against back in the States — they were there to take in the World Cup! But you don’t have to join a rugby team to travel and see the sights.

A lengthy train ride through the Rockies, mirroring the route the pioneers took West, seems like a great way to start 2018.

you enjoy, I still encourage you to set aside some time this month for something that you love to do. Take a walk, hit the pool, play a game of catch with friends, and enjoy the nice summer weather while we have it. We may not be able to take three-month summer breaks like when we were kids, but that doesn’t mean we’re not allowed to have some fun!

Have a great July,
