The past few years Jared and I have gotten to see quite a few new places. We've done a fair share of traveling within the U.S. and also have been to Mexico and the Dominican Republic which were both incredible. My vacation window is pretty small because of work, so I'm always looking pretty far ahead on the calendar and thinking about where and when we can get somewhere next. Just having that next getaway booked makes me so excited. I love having something to look forward to, especially something as fun as visiting a new place with my man.
The only "problem" now is that Jared and I can't seem to narrow down where we'd like to visit in 2015! There is so much that sounds fun and exciting and we just really wanna' see it all. A few of our top candidates right now are:
Grand Canyon/West trip:
I went out West once as kid and loved it, but neither Jared or I have either one seen the Grand Canyon. We'd love to plan a trip out West that let us see the Grand Canyon and possibly another national park. I've also had my eye on Lake Tahoe ever since a few blogs I read have traveled there-- I've fallen in love with their photos!
I just can't help it, I love a good beach vacation and will never get sick of gorgeous waters, soft sand and lots of sunshine. What's not to love?! My parents got to swim with dolphins here a couple years ago and I've been jealous ever since ;)
And then to completely go opposite from the beaches... an Alaskan cruise is something that has always interested me. I can't even imagine how awesome it would be to see views like this out your window!!
And then again... there's always Italy ;) #dreamvacation
We also hope to get some weekend trips in next year that only require a few hours of driving. Chicago has been on our list forever and I'm trying to convince Jared to take me for my birthday next year ;) So where should we go? Have you been to any of these places or have recommendations? It's so hard to narrow down the choices when everything sounds fun and exciting, but there's only so much vacation time (and moolah!) to use.
