I’d never seen it before, so I took Catherine over to Dulles and stood on the roof of the car. More pics later, but here’s a quick peek.

My goal in life is to fill my family’s passports with stamps, creating buckets of memories along the way. You’ll find me writing about realistic ways for normal people to travel the world, whether you’re on a budget or enjoy luxury. I also enjoy taking us on the occasional detour to explore the inner workings of the travel industry.
