There are those moments in some trips where it just all comes together. It all becomes worth it and any doubts about whether you came to the right place at the right time are washed away. Those are moments when you are lucky or wise enough to know are special as they are happening so you can try extra hard to soak in what they looked, smelled, and felt like.
Moments like riding the beautiful carousel with my daughter in Boston Common as the sun set on a warm mid-October day, causing some of the orange trees to look like they were glowing with fire.
These are the magical moments that aren’t brought to you by any Disney type of manufactured magic, but that are brought to you by real life amazing travel experiences. I’m so thankful for those moments, and even more thankful we got to experience one today.
