and all so new to me.

  3. Festivals are a great way to experience different cultures without taking time off work or breaking the bank! We went to a Polynesian festival this weekend and immersed ourselves in all things Pacific island for a few hours. It was glorious! I know our area holds these cultural events frequently. I’d love to visit more of them.
