Inspiring Quote from our friends at Afar! Get your wanderlust pants on…

An excerpt from the heartfelt story of Absolute Travel Staffer Katie Losey’s recent trip to Amanyara: “I believe wholeheartedly that fresh experiences propel me into life’s rapture–they remove me from my comfort zone, challenge me, and stay with me in the background of my day to day life. I can daydream of pick-up tennis on termite courts in Tanzania, carving through Cartagena’s fruit stalls sucking down lulu fruit and watching my mom wiz by on a motorbike with a super-sized smile in Vietnam. These are the moments I lean on when it’s drizzly and forty degrees in NYC and I need a little break.” - See more at: http://bit.ly/1hRbtsb
