Lake Louise CanadaWhat a beautiful hidden gem! This is Lake Louise in Alberta, Canada. When I think “vacation,” Canada is definitely not the first thing that comes to mind. Looking at this picture, though, sure makes me reconsider! How cool would it be to stay at that hotel in the picture and wake up to that gorgeous view outside your window?! Not only that, but I am sure there are some fun water sports or boating options. Even just going on a walk around that lake or having a lakeside picnic would make for a great day.

So many people get caught up in the roller coaster that is life, and forget to step back and truly enjoy themselves. In my opinion, I think traveling is necessary for living life to the fullest. The world is such a large and beautiful place, and there is so much to explore. Adventuring and experiencing new things is something that helps us grow as human beings and keeps us striving to accomplish bigger and better things.

It is so important to take a break from your busy schedule when days and weeks and months just seem to blend together into years; time will just keep slipping by! A great way to keep balance with this is to plan a trip, so you have something to look forward to.  Another idea is to set yourself a goal, and once you reach that goal, reward yourself with a trip to your desired destination. Travel by yourself, with family, or friends!  Don’t let the world pass you by….

“The purpose of life, after all, is to live it, to taste experience to the utmost, to reach out eagerly and without fear for newer and richer experience.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
