My friend from college, Beth, is in the middle of an around-the-world trip. She has been to so many destinations and experienced all kinds of cool stuff many people only dream of (and some things people don't dream of - like getting her iPhone stolen). Her Instagram was even featured in my favorite hotel chain's newsletter. Although I admire her vivacious and bold endeavor tremendously, I am not sure I could ever take such an extensive trip. I love traveling, but I also really enjoy being home. Thank goodness for technology and the internet. It's been fun keeping up with her adventures on her blog. She did a great 6 month highlight recap that I think anyone with a desire to travel (without even having to get on a plane) can enjoy.
