I never considered myself much of a traveler. Don’t get me wrong I haven’t stayed in one place my whole life. I grew up in Florida but my family moved to Michigan and then Virginia. I eventually made it back home to Florida and never wanted to travel. That was until I started blogging. I have been able to travel to some amazing places such as San Diego, Los Angeles, and New York. Getting a chance to visit all of these amazing places really gave me the traveling bug.
I don’t travel for my blog any more, it is just too hard to do when you work full time and have a family. So now I do any traveling with my family. Our favorite for of travel, or I should say some of us, is cruising. We went on an amazing 7 day 6 night cruise last summer. It was the perfect vacation after we purchased our home and spent a lot of time painting, repairing, and moving in. Not everyone has the chance to travel and there are many people that, believe it or not, have not even left their home town. U.S. Cellular, Travel Channel and Food Network are empowering those who have not had the opportunity to meaningfully travel to finally visit the places and destinations they’ve always dreamed of seeing.
Where would you go if you could travel anywhere? I have a few places I would love to visit one day such as Hawaii, Italy, and Paris. Oh and I can’t forget Australia. I hope that one day when my husband and I have more free time with each other we will be able to do some traveling to some of these amazing places. I just watched a Big Country video where Andrew Zimmern was surprising U.S. Cellular customers with a trip of a lifetime. Backed by U.S. Cellular’s national coverage, these lucky customers will set out on trips of a lifetimes across the country with the help of TV personality Andrew Zimmern on the show Big Country.
In the touching video, Julius, was nominated by his wife to fulfill a dream of traveling to New York. U.S. Cellular sent him from Hawaii to New York and spent the day traveling the city, maybe I could have hitched a ride back home with him and checked off one of my travel bucket list items.
Of course if you are like me when you travel you don’t go anywhere without your phone. Since our phone is no longer just a device to call home but instead a device where we can write to our family, upload photos on social media, and really let our friends and family experience our vacations with us. As these lucky customers experience amazing sights and tastes on their trips around the country, U.S. Cellular’s nationwide coverage enables them to stay connected to their friends and family back home from the middle of anywhere.
