Don't Forget About YOU!
(DETM November Newsletter)
While you are busy booking other people’s travels, don’t forget to take a bit of time to check things off YOUR bucket list. You all work so hard to help your clients with their bucket lists, I wouldn’t want to see you delaying yours.
Last month I was able to check 2 things off my bucket list: Seeing Michelangelo's original David in Florence.
And seeing the Pantheon in Rome while traveling with friends. 
There were a few more things on our list from this past trip, but we will have to head back to check those off the list next year.
