Spend money on experiences

I just read an article that stated, “If you want to be happier, spend money on experiences.”

I guess my traveling adds up to a whole lot of happiness.

  • Watching a lava flow into the ocean in the darkness of night
  • Standing amongst blue-footed boobies
  • Sitting in the middle of a penguin colony
  • Snowshoeing in Antarctica
  • Photographing polar bears
  • Watching the Arctic Ocean sunset – an aha-a-a-a moment!
  • Traveling through the Panama Canal on a large cruise ship and a small ferry
  • Ziplining in Mexico
