You keep buying those travel magazines and guidebooks , hoping someday to visit some foreign country or to do your own 30 Plus Teams Tour .
Stop wishing about seeing those canals and windmills in The Netherlands .
Just go, will you .
Once you get the love of travel inside of you , you’ll want to travel again and again .
You’ll even have saved up enough money to do it, because after all, you can’t do that 30 Plus Teams Tour of Oklahoma City on your looks alone .
Someone is going to have to pay for those Thunder basketball tickets .
I was 12 years old when I took my first plane ride from Martha’s Vineyard , Massachusetts to New York City .
The takeoffs and landings made me nervous then, they do now .
I close my eyes until the plane is in the air and on the ground , safely .
Yes, I also say a prayer .
I’ll never forget it, though .
I took that first step .
I did it, and I haven’t stopped traveling .
If you’re young now or even young at heart , put down that travel guide and those travel magazines .
Get out there and see what Paris , Berlin , and Tel Aviv have to offer .
Visit the beaches of Thailand , Australia , or Mexico .
Or even the beaches of California while you’re doing your own 30 Plus Teams Tour of Los Angeles , San Diego , San Francisco or Oakland .
Have some fun on your trip .
Learn how to tango in Argentina , salsa in Puerto Rico , and line dance in Nashville .
Yeah , you can even go a little bit crazy on your own 30 Plus Teams Tour of St. Louis at a Cardinals baseball game .
Believe that you can actually get there by flying or driving .
Better yet , let somebody else do the driving for you .
No matter what , stop wishing , put down the travel magazines , the guidebooks , and all those brochures that you ordered and start packing .
YOU’RE GOING TO TRAVEL SOME WHERE .
