What exciting adventures are on your Travel Bucket List?

      My husband and I were going to go to Santorini alone last summer but about 6 months before we left I decided I wanted the girls to come with us. We ended up having the most amazing family vacation.


      I figure there will be plenty of time to travel alone with my husband and so little time to travel with the girls. Time flies…too quickly.

  1. I am absolutely in love with your travel bucket list–so many great travel suggestions to use for my own bucket list. I really need to work on my own travel bucket list to help me get out and see the world!


      I recommend doing it at night. It was honestly the most romantic thing we’ve ever done. The small canals are lit up by the light from people’s windows. I’d love to do it again.

    You’ve done a lot on your bucket list, that’s for sure! And although you still have more to go, you have gone through a lot of experiences especially since traveling is something that not a lot of people can do all the time! That’s really awesome! And I wish you luck on your next adventure! Safe travels!

  3. A very well thought of bucket list! Enjoy your travels. I would love to see more of the world, however, it is the finances that are holding me back. I just keep on remember the meme I saw of Facebook – “If traveling was free, you won’t see me in decades.” 🙂


      I agree completely. Between finances and my kids’ school calendar, I don’t travel nearly as much as I want.

  4. I live in Alaska and really want to take the train ride from Fairbanks to Anchorage through Denali park. You’d love you time in Alaska. Do make it up here sometime 🙂


      I’d love to so a small cruise into Alaska and do a bunch of excursions there. It’s the only cruise I have a desire to do. the landscape looks amazing.

  5. Sweet bucket list you got there! It’s refreshing to see that you’ve actually completed some already. Going to a broadway show is on my list.


      That’s a great one. I’ve seen Les Mis, Mamma Mia, and The Producers on Broadway and they were all incredible. I’d love to see a play in London!


      I had a professor in college that had us write our Bucket List. It had to have 100 experiences on it and we had the entire semester to create it. His theory is you should always have 100 experiences on your list and when you finish one, you replace it with another. I’ve kept a complete Bucket List ever since. This is just a piece of it 🙂

    I like your bucket list, sounds full of adventures. The first time I make mine, I was so excited! I count each day that passes by!


      They are amazing!! Pinterest has some recipes for them but there’s nothing like the ones at Serendipity in NYC.
