I doubt many people have hollow feelings about money spent on a multigenerational trip with their family, or a girlfried getaway or a destination wedding or a visit to the land of their ancestors. These are experiences that can’t rust, will never break, and can never be lost. They don’t depreciate; they only appreciate. They are the very best investments in the future.
Life doesn’t stand still in bad times. Your children will only have the chance to see the world thru the eyes of a 5, 8, or 16-year old once in their lives, in 2009. Travel yields a clear return that pays lifelong dividents.
. ..travel is as close to a sure thing investment as a person can make in 2009
