25 states + 1 province in 7 weeks
What is a Celebration Tour?
Simply put, a Celebration Tour is a trip that celebrates some aspect of living out loud and being fully alive. It is all about growth and blossoming. It is a living, breathing example of moving from self and/or cultural censorship to celebration.
Why Celebrate with Travel?
I have loved traveling ever since I was a little girl. While it expands my mind to see other vistas outside of my own life, meeting new people, and reconnecting with family and friends, is actually one of the main reasons that I love to travel.
When I was 8, I had my first taste of what I now call a “Celebration Tour” on a car trip with my family when we camped in national parks all across the US, and reconnected with friends and family along the way. (This is the trip when I decided I would live in San Francisco some day – a dream I lived from 1998 – 2004.)
When I graduated with my Master’s degree in Sexuality Studies, I embarked on an adventure to visit more than 10 sex and erotica museums in Europe and the US. (My favorite was in Hamburg, Germany. Although I wish I could find the article I wrote about my adventures in 2004, here’s a blog from someone who visited some of the same museums.)
When we drove from Austin to Boston for the Art on the Roof 2012 event, my family and I visited more than 15 art museums. (Our family favorites are The Modern in Forth Worth, and Crystal Bridges in Arkansas.)
