Farmers market in Burgos

Most people in the United States buy their produce from conventional supermarkets not knowing who grew their fruits and veggies or what part of the US they came from. Me, I love farmers markets and they are very popular where I come from.

Places like these let you get to know your local farmers, you create a special bond, and it is better to help the people of your community so you should shop at your local farmers market too!

I first got this travel bug when I was 13 years old and it has taken me ten years to act on it. Why so long? I was comfortable. Comfortable with my job since I was number one in sales, comfortable in any relationship I was in because “it was the right thing to do”, and overall just comfortable with my routine. I did make some amazing memories in college with my girlfriends but for the most part I forgot what I actually wanted to do with my life. Now when people tell me their travel goals immediately without hesitation I always say “Go for it!!” Continue reading “Just go”
