Have you ever dreamed of traveling the world and discovering new cultures? Ever since I was a little girl, I would watch Mary-Kate and Ashley movies about their adventures to Paris, Rome, Australia, and more. Sitting there watching each movie planted a seed in my heart that would later turn to a desire and a business.
As years went by, I had been to countries and territories like Mexico, Belize, Bahamas, and Puerto Rico, but I had never been to Europe, which is where I always dreamt of going. Asking my parents for years to take a trip overseas, we never had time to go because of the family business and many other responsibilities. I didn’t let that stop me from dreaming though. I used a vision board to paste down historic sites I wanted to visit, places I wanted to eat and the type of hotels I wanted to stay in. Looking at my vision board daily caused me to visualize my dreams and eventually turn them into a reality even without my parents. So for Spring break 2011, I planned a vacation on my own with a group of family friends. We decided to hit two of my dream destinations: London and Paris. Boy was I excited to see my dreams finally turn into my reality.
Later on that year, I decided to do not one, but two study aboard programs in Europe that took me back to Paris, Rome, Florence, Cinque Terre, Belgium and London. I still think back on these moments and give thanks that my parents pushed me to visualize my future outcome. Fast forward years later, I was inspired to start my current travel line, The Style and Travel Girl Collection, which are accessories created for the safe and fabulous travelpreneur. One of my products is called Around The World In Style: The Travel Journal, which was inspired from my story here. I knew that if I created a journal geared towards travel, it would help plant the seed in others to see the world around them and discover new cultures. It’s a journal that helps you visualize where you want to go and remember the destinations you have already explored.
