Inspiration

Who doesn’t love a little travel inspiration? There was a time in our journey when we weren’t the Travel Addicts. There was a time when we didn’t travel. We didn’t think we had the money or the time. That changed for us years ago, but our pre-travel life is never far from our thoughts.

If we are being truly honest, one of the reasons we embarked on this journey was to inspire other people. We want to share the gift of the world with everyone. These articles are more than just some pretty pictures and click bait headlines. We want to offer real, meaningful travel inspiration, tips, and suggestions.

These articles are meant to inspire you. But more than that, these are meant to educate and inform. While we have lots of destination-specific information and articles (including itineraries and weekend getaways), these articles look at the travel experience from a broader perspective.
