This May we have chosen to dedicate it to both Pennsylvania destinations, traveling abroad, and also to supporting small businesses due to the fact that it’s celebrated this month.
We wanted to share the joy of traveling with everyone and also wanted to remind you how healthy it is to travel. Whether you stay local, travel from state to state, or jump on a plane across the country or world, traveling does something not only for your body but also for your mind and soul. You return refreshed and full of ideas. Or in my case, I return already planning to travel again and that keeps me motivated on so many levels.
This month one of our monthly article contributors Maria states in her article; “You have to put an official date on your vacation trips, otherwise they will never happen.” I couldn’t agree more, we must do it now or it may never happen. This leads me to the topic of my own short article this month about how and why turning 50 years old forces you to truly start living life.
We wanted to prepare you, our readers, for this spring and summer season of traveling. We have tips for immigrants and traveling, tips for the folks that plan to say their “I do’s” in another country. We also highlight so many things to do within Berks County and surrounding areas. And as our friends from the Berk’s County’s Visitor’s Bureau said, “Get Curious, Stay Curious.” Many people always say there aren’t things to do in this town, city, or county, but here in Berks we have so many things to do, people just need to know where to look. PA Americana Region prints an annual publication with all the things to see and do. Find out more about them in a four-page spread in this same edition.
Also, we have articles by our Reading Recreation on our local recreational parks, Berks Nature talks about a new bilingual employee and how she is helping them to better serve our diverse community. Go out and enjoy all that Reading, Berks and Pennsylvania have to offer. It’s also the perfect month to also support small businesses.
