HAPPY THANKSGIVING! I am grateful for your support for me and We Said Go Travel! Thank you!
WRITING CONTEST: 
The Fall 2014 Gratitude Travel Writing Contest is open. Free entry and cash prizes. Share your story of how you are a hero!
 The theme for the Fall 2014 contest is “Gratitude: A Place That Inspires You to Feel Strong and Hopeful.”
We hope your article will inspire others to travel more and find their inner hero!   Share your story your act of gratitude–a place you chose or that allows you to stand up for yourself. Be inspired by Idina Menzel‘s character, Elizabeth, in the Broadway sensation, If/Then, with her song, No More Wasted Time,

No more wasted time

No more time for doubt

You say you’re not sure you’re a hero?

It’s time you should find out

So say you’ve made a few mistakes

Heroes know that’s what it takes

To find their way

No more wasted time

Not one more day

Where are you most able to be your true self? Your place of freedom might be far across the globe or in your own backyard.
