    Volunteer for an Adventure!

    $0.00

    If you want to experience a life-changing adventure, I highly recommend you combine travel with volunteerism! It’s one of the best things I’ve ever done! I’ve traveled to many beautiful, historic, and tourist friendly places, but volunteering gave me a deeper, richer, and more rewarding experience. It’s a great way to be completely immersed in a new culture, visit places you’ve never have been before, give yourself a new perspective on your life back at home, and have the added feel-good bonus of feeding your soul while helping those in need.

    Walking On Air - Therafit Shoes

    $0.00

    So, what is the most important thing you need to pack in your suitcase beside any medications you may use? It’s essential to have a comfortable pair of shoes – don’t you agree? Shoes are the biggest problem when it comes to packing because they take up a lot of room. However, I found an amazing pair of shoes that do double duty, because they look stylish (ballet flat), but the shock absorbing comfort soles make you feel like you’re walking on air. The shoes were sent to me to try and I have to admit, I have not been able to take them off. I have been wearing them everyday and have received a lot of compliments. When I tell people that they feel amazing as well, they are also sold.
