As a busy entrepreneur growing two businesses, I travel for work on a weekly basis.

If you think travel is all about eating banana pancakes and lying by the beach, then you're very mistaken. Travel is all about stretching yourself in ways you wouldn't each day.

We've all heard of the 7 Wonders of the World. And the 7 Natural Wonders of the World. And the 7 Wonders of the Ancient World. Sadly, Canada is represented in these famous lists only by the Northern Lights, which Greenland expects us to share. It's time for a list for the rest of us.

Travelling is like being suspended above a world that doesn't need us to function. We're irrelevant. Despite how amazing travel is, that isolated irrelevance can gnaw at us. So it's important to remember everything ends, even travel. Few ever experience these prolonged journeys. Don't let homesickness or isolation spoil your adventure.

I first read Lost Horizon back in grade school. Don't make me tell you how long ago that was. In those days, we were given a required reading list at the very beginning of the school year.

I prepared for this trip months before, but not in the way I should have.

My partner of almost five years and I are planning a wedding celebration in Italy. Not because I am chasing the aforementioned goal, and not because we want to be fancy, but because half the guest list is already there. So there's my Mario, who is, as you may have guessed, very Italian. For many, this will be a destination wedding and a chance to experience Italy. That said, the biggest challenge presents itself. With all the venue options under the Tuscan sun, how the heck does a girl choose?

Exploring San Francisco's Best Museums

Amanda Blakley

San Francisco seems big -- but I soon realized that her size (surprisingly only 7 square miles), has little to do with the grandeur you feel while visiting, but everything to do with the big hearts and open minds of the San Franciscans themselves.
