I have a confession to make. I, Michelle Pegram, have never stepped foot on an airplane. Yes, it’s true. I know that by today’s standards, that can be a rarity, especially for someone nearly 30-years-old. It’s not because I’m afraid of flying but rather because it can be quite expensive and a full out luxurious vacation has just not been in the cards for Mr. Savvy and myself yet. In fact, I’ve yet to even travel outside the southeast of the states. It’s definitely something I’d like to fix within the next couple years. And really, it’s pretty funny as Mr. Savvy was born in and lived in Germany for several years of his childhood, so he’s seen much more of the world than myself.
As I said, traveling and expanding my cultural horizons is something I definitely want to do more of in the next couple years, so I’ve been thinking about where I would like to first travel outside the immediate US. The first place I always think of is Puerto Rico. For one, it’s close to where we live, while still being exotic and different, yet since it’s technically part of the US, you don’t even need a passport or foreign currency to visit.
Plus, I love all the different aspects of the country and it looks like such a beautiful place from what I have seen on TV and pictures. Not only does it have miles and miles of coastline for beautiful beaches and walks along the ocean, but you can also visit a rainforest. How cool is that?! I’d also love to see a bit of old world charm by visiting San Juan. You guys all know how much of a foodie I am by now so I would love to check out the food and restaurant scene as well. I think I was in love when I saw a food show on the Travel channel that featured a restaurant in Puerto Rico that had what looked almost like a plate lined with a clothesline full of various meats. Sorry, I need a second to wipe all the drool off the keyboard.
Okay, so then, of course, there’s the rum. Have I mentioned that rum is my favorite hard drink? Even though I’m not a heavy drinker, I somehow don’t think I’d have any problem taste testing various mojitos. ;) So, I think it’s pretty safe to say that Puerto Rico has plenty of attractions that can turn an ordinary trip into the ultimate vacation story. I can’t wait to be able to go some day soon and make my own!
