Everywhere you go, there you are

I have always had a traveler’s heart.  I just never really travelled.  Like REALLY travelled.  I had been places, I had seen things, I lived in New york for a hot minute, I moved to Chicago after school but I really hadn’t been anywhere in Europe or out of the country. During our honeymoon in Italy.  I got bit by the travel bug.  Once you have a taste of it you can’t stop! I even learned how to pack for two weeks in Italy with one carry-on suitcase.  IMG_2108

For the next few years, I really want to get all of the travel out of me.  There are places in America that I really want to visit and then there are places around the world that I really want to go. So here is the master list of where I want to go in the next 3 to 4 years:

1.) San Francisco and Napa:

Spectacular San Francisco Famous Downtown Land...

I am going to go with my mom at the end of this month and I can’t wait because I have always wanted to go there.  I hear that San Francisco is a little like Chicago.  It’s a big city on the water, it’s definitely my kind of town.  We are going to go see the Redwoods in Muir woods and take a day trip to Napa.  I cannot wait!

2.) Paris: 

Paris Exposition: Champ de Mars and Eiffel Tow...

I want to stay in St. Germain, and eat pastries and drink coffee.  I want to walk along the Seine and see the Moulin Rouge and try all of the different French wines.  The Winged Victory in the Louvre has always been something I really wanted to see. But mainly, I just want to walk around Paris and find things to love about it.  I seriously can’t wait to see the Eiffel Tower, I want to take a photo of it and hang it up in our place.  It has been one of the things I have always wanted to photograph.

3.) Hawaii:Hawaii

Hawaii looks like one of the most beautiful and romantic places on Earth. My Grandparents honeymooned there in the 60’s, my parents renewed their vows there, my husband went for a few weeks to visit a friend, essentially everyone has been there but me.  Luckily, we have friends who live there or who have a home there so the possibility of us being able to go is pretty high.  I definitely want to try surfing, and if there is anywhere that I would do outdoorsy things it would be Hawaii.  I would totally go on a hike there!

4.) Munich/ Berlin/ Prague:Reichstag building seen from the west, before ...

My sister-in-law lives in Munich and I have always wanted to see Germany.  I love places with a lot of history and Germany obviously has an abundance of it.  I have also always wanted to see the Christmas Market there and have German hot chocolate. I am crossing my fingers that we get to go in the winter time on year!

5.) Istanbul:

English: Ortaköy Mosque, along the Bosphorus, ...

Turkish delight, the Haija Sophia,the Blue Mosque,  the Grand Bazaar, I love the exotic feeling of a place like this.  Good friends of ours went their for their honeymoon and ever since they have come back, I have been fascinated with the place.  It just seems like such an adventure.

More places I would LOVE to see:

  • Ireland
  • Moscow and St. Petersburg
  • India
  • Africa
  • Martha’s Vineyard
  • New Zealand
  • Spain
  • Denver
  • Peru
  • Boston
  • French Countryside/Riviera

If you could go anywhere, where would you go?

    • Don’t mess with Texas!! I have always been pretty curious about Texas too. I bet there is some cool stuff there! Keep in touch, and have fun there! It will be great to move to a bigger city right now, trust me, it’s a lot of fun.

  1. Love this post! 🙂 I have an insane list of places …. but Spain, Greece, South Africa, Thailand, Brazil, Turkey are currently at the top of my list. I can’t believe you haven’t been to Paris … I feel like that city is for you! xo

    • Shanelle! I am going to San Fran on the 20th thru 24th. We are going to Napa for a day and then we are going to Muir Woods one of the days too. Other than that, we are WIDE open. What should we do? It will be me and my mom.

  2. I, too, have such a traveler’s heart! We try to take one “big” trip over Thanksgiving each year which gives us a lot of to be thankful for. You’ll have a blast in San Fran and Napa this month for sure. 🙂 They’re great places to visit. Keep us posted on your travels and post pictures. Also, for what it’s worth, if you like scenery, adventure, and the outdoors, add New Zealand to the TIPPY TOP of your list!! It may be the honeymoon speaking but I swear that it’s the most extraordinary country I’ve ever been to.

    • Hey Carly! I love your blog, I keep meaning to tell you! But yeah, New Zealand looks pretty amazing. I am sure this list will change as opportunities or deals come up but I just thought I would throw it out there in the Universe in hopes that it will guarantee that I get to go to some of these places. 🙂
