Oct News: Celebrating Jewish New YearOctober News: Happy New Year and Caribbean Birthday Trip

Where did I go in October?

At the beginning of the month, it was Rosh Hashannah and Yom Kippur and I celebrated the new year of 5777 with family and friends in Los Angeles.

I love this quote from Shimon Peres, I think it sums up the way he lived his life and the way I want to live mine:

“When you have two alternatives, the first thing you have to do is to look for the third that you didn’t think about, that doesn’t exist.” 

I am so grateful to everyone who has supported me on my journey with We Said Go Travel and watched the site grow and grow. I was honored to be invited on several trips to the Caribbean this month and I got to celebrate my birthday with many cakes, activities and Scuba Diving. Photos, videos and articles will be coming next month.
