Thank you & Happy New Year! This is my DEC news update from WSGT

2015 has been amazing! I am GRATEFUL to all my friends and family for your support. Thank you to everyone who has supported me and We Said Go Travel in 2015.
I loved my December Winter adventure on Viking River Cruise with #VikingSocial. We sailed from Budapest, Hungary with stops in Austria to Nuremberg, Germany. There are photos up on all my social media (InstagramFacebookTwitter) and videos will appear in 2016! It was a fantastic and friendly group of writers and photographers and I was honored to be selected to participate.
