Research tells us that good experiential purchases bring us more happiness than material purchases (, , .

So what is better than a great travel experience? Be it in a large city or the middle of nowhere? Not much I say! My wife and I try to get away at least twice a year to a place where we have never been before, it could be as far away as the Cook Islands or Italy, or as near as the Eastern Sierras. It’s a great way to disconnect, recharge, and experience something breathtaking for the first time.
