There’s something about the beach that relaxes us and puts a smile on our faces. Whether you go alone, with family, or friends it’s a great way to spend a day. Imagine walking in beautiful coral sand, wiggling your toes or dipping them in the water, lying in a hammock or lounger with a good book and a drink in your hand. Sunrises and sunsets can be spectacular.

I’m lucky enough to go to the beach as much as I want – some days I need it more than others.

I love to travel and my biggest regret is that I waited so long to do it, thinking I just couldn’t afford it. I have had some crazy fun, met some amazing people, and had some scary moments such as getting locked in a shower at a campsite. For our trip to Mexico, we were able to save money by house sitting, which was something completely new to us.
