Have you started the bucket list?

I like to think of the travel bucket list as less of a morbid thing (a list you make of things you want to do before you die), and more of an exciting, look-forward-to, list of things to accomplish or places to travel to!

I’ve had an ongoing bucket list for travel that I’ve been working on for quite some time. Nick + I like the calming beach life, Brian wants to see all the sites and keep a good pace going on trips, and Emma takes anything that involves watching a musical.

Basically we cover the board when it comes to what type of vacation to take.  We all love different climates too, so we have to come together and decide which destinations are at the top of our lists! Over the years we have made many checkmarks on our list.

We have checked Jamaica and Curacao off our list that included a bus ride none of us will soon forget. This group of girls in Jamaica came to the resort to perform and they were generous enough to pose for my mom-photo before they left. Nick is still that little ham, only much taller now.

Now that travel is opening back up it’s the perfect time to kick back and write up your list of places to go this Summer, Spring Break, Holiday break… The best part of our travels is that we keep busy enough that electronics are not on much! And if we’re overseas….NOT AT ALL!

Here our a few more on the travel bucket list::

  • Santorini, Greece
  • Joshua Tree National Park
  • Australia
  • Palermo, Sicily – Italy: I’d love to see where my family started, and to visit history
  • Cinque Terre Italy
  • Boston, Mass. – This has been on our list for years, but another destination always seems to win out. I want to see the historical side, including the Freedom Trail, Fenway Park, and the Boston Tea Party Ship.
  • Moab, Utah
