Today Is A Great Day For A Great Travel Day

October is a beautiful time to travel with friends. Then again, all twelve months are great for traveling. Today, October 30, is a great day!

In my writing challenge, I am writing abut fall and fall feels. Today, I write about traveling in the fall with friends.

 

After all, life was meant for good friends and great adventures!

October is a month we travel in, not sure why, but we always do.

We have traveled to New York, Ruidoso, London, Las Vegas and San Francisco and Napa. All in October.

Today, I am on my way to Mexico, in the middle of the Caribbean Ocean, with two of my best friends.

“A good friend listens to your adventures. A best friend makes them with you.”

Today, is a great day for travel. Today, is a great day for friends. Today, is a great day for drinks with friends while traveling.

Today, is not a great day for blogging!
