This week: Passions From the RoadChances are on your last trip, you brought something home that reminds you of where you've been. But there's got to be more to a place than can be said with a key chain or T-shirt. Hey, don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking the coconut you mailed to yourself from that winter vacation on Maui or the Pope soap on a rope you just had to have during your visit to Vatican City. But if you're lucky, you might bring back more than just a tshostchki. I'm talking experiences so profound that when you came back you made them a part of your daily life. A few weeks ago I asked you to call in with those passions that you discovered while on the road. And many who called tell us they came back with newfound enthusiasm for politics, rock climbing, and London Hob Nob cookies, just to name a few.
Next Week: Funny at 35,000 Feet?
Traveling with kids is difficult enough, but they don't shed, bark or require excessive deposits at hotels-at least the kids I've known. But take along a pet and you've got yourself a whole different menagerie of problems. What about you? Have you ever explored the world with a furry friend in tow? I want to hear your stories about traveling with a pet. Was it in your car, plane, train-cruise ship? Tell us your story via email or phone. Call us at 888-SAVTRAV or send us an email. That number again is 888-728-8728.
