      Oh, where to Roam???


      In the animal kingdom, one will always roam around for various reasons; new locations, adventure, new zen of living, seasonal change, etc.  No matter what or why one will move or travel to a new destination, it's always at least one of many answers = the experience!

      As it's a new year, it's a great time to start planning and getting ready for the top destinations to travel in 2019.  A lot of times we ask people where do you want  to travel but the real question is, where do we not want to travel?  The latter question will be nowhere because there are so many places to visit, each with a very special experience to share and cherish.
