  Traveling has always been an amazing combination of feelings and experiences for me. But for the most part, I find traveling outside of my day to day situation incredibly re-vivifying.

Living the Risk

On July 22, 2013, in Katheryn's Blog, by katheryn

You know those things that niggle at you that you say you want to do?:  One day.  Next year. Before I die. I have this idea that as we are ALL dying and we really do not know when…its best to be getting on with the ol’ bucket list.  And so, to that end, I […]
