PUT DOWN THAT GUIDEBOOK AND JUST GO.

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  FB_IMG_1490023469680and  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 .
