When you go on vacation it’s all about you and having a good time, so go ahead and give yourself permission to do those embarrassing things.

My husband loves finding McDonald’s around the world, I love going to Starbucks and I have the cups to prove it.

If it makes you happy…. do it! Even if it is buying that tacky souvenir.

On one trip to Venice I spent $16 for a Bellini in a very tine glass at Harry’s Bar, the place that created it and I had gelato at some of the most recommended places to do my own comparison.

In Japan we dedicated an entire day to the street food of Osaka.

In Hawaii I dragged everyone kicking and screaming to Haleakala @ 4am to see the sunrise. We’re still talking about that one today!

So matter your passion, curiosity or whim, do it like nobody’s watching!
