You’re on vacation, relax and enjoy your trip. It can be very easy to get caught up in the whirlwind of Disney, feeling like you need to absolutely do everything.
When you travel, don’t be an American. Be a world citizen. Be a curious mind.
When people talk about visiting a place they might say it was awesome, or really colorful or something, but most of the time they don’t mention how their legs ached from walking fifteen miles in one day. How the seagulls called to one another or how lanterns swung back and forth overhead in the warm summer breeze along narrow foreign streets.

The world is yours and just because you’re in love doesn’t mean your life should be limiting.
As a traveler, where I’ve been isn’t half as important as where I’m going.
