By Samantha Scott
May 1, 2018

Forging connections between people is one of the best things about travel. Not only with the outside world - new cultures, colors, and creeds - but also with your travel companions. 

Traveling with family and friends is a wonderful way to deepen the relationship, inspire questions and conversations, and of course create lasting memories.

So because it's almost Mother's Day, we're asking...

What are some of your favorite travel memories with mom? 

Honor Your "Travel Mom"

Moms are special for so many reasons, including: they inspire us to expand our horizons, try new things, support us, and make us feel safe to embark on sometimes intimidating adventures.

But it's not only our biological mothers who provide this love and inspiration. Do you have another special woman who has?

Whether it's a friend, an aunt, a teacher, or even a sibling, we're here to celebrate the women who help us pursue the joys of travel.

Everyone has a story -- and we want to hear yours!

You and your Travel Mom share a unique bond from traveling. Show her how much your travel experiences have meant and get a $100 travel credit for you and your Travel Mom.

OK, I have to add back in the 'best' part of the trip here. Our editor, in her wisdom removed the story about me getting bitten by a wild Tibetan macaque while on the sacred buddhist mountain, Emei Shan. Beware! They are stealthy, sneaky, and I didn't even have any food on me but one of the monkeys jumped on my leg while I was trying to take a picture. He then wrapped all 5 limbs around my leg so there was no chance of me shaking him off and looked me in the eye. He slowly opened a mouth filled with huge teeth and kept looking me in the eye as he slowly moved closer and then, deliberately gently closed on my leg. He was clearly holding me up for food! He did jump off my leg once i made a fist and pulled it back. Smart monkey! And then there is the part where my new wife and our guide ran away while the monkey did this...

I climbed Mt Emei just yesterday! When the monkeys closed in on us and started snarling and grabbing our bags I said "I'm sure they won't actually attack us, we're fine"- I'm glad I hadn't read this comment beforehand!!

Ailish I'm glad you didn't get bitten. Hope you had a clear view when you got to the top. We were shrouded in cloud. Still awesome though.

This makes me want to go back to China. Was there in '99, which feels like a lifetime ago, and didn't get out of the big cities. Would love to explore countryside and do some climbing/hiking, as well as visit Szechuan region.
