On this special day we have decided to forego our normal article. With all of the hustle and bustle that everyone experiences this time of year, we hope you will have the opportunity to slow down a little, and enjoy the day. We want to thank you all for allowing us to share our experiences with you. It’s quite humbling to think that so many of you have found our articles entertaining and useful. We hope that you will continue to visit us, and perhaps share some of your own experiences with everyone. Our goal is to build a community of readers who love to explore this wonderful planet we all call home.The authors take a break from traveling to enjoy Christmas with family and friends.

May the peace and love of Christmas be yours, and may the coming year be filled with happiness and prosperity. God bless you all!
