#thetravelingharveys

I think many of you have seen me use the hashtag #thetravelingharveys on all of my posts. I am excited to start sharing a more detailed outline of our travels and how we do it. I get so many questions about where we go, what we do, see, eat, and mainly how do we afford it? So I am going to be breaking it down place by place. I will be sharing tips and tricks to traveling cheap and how to get the most out of your travels. I am excited for this little journey because it will be fun to write down all my memories from the trips so I make sure I never forget.

I’m not the best writer I never have been. I just feel like I can never write what I want to, but i’m not going to let that stop me. It is a goal for me to be better at keeping a journal and what better way to do it then here on my blog with all my cute supporters to encourage me along the way! Thank you so much for all your support and love. I have been blown away at how amazing all of you are and supportive from day one of me starting this Blog.
