My Instagram feed these last couple weeks has been filled with photos of other people’s fantastic-looking vacation photos: Iceland, Tuscany, Israel, Barcelona, London, Vancouver. I’m on vacation, too, but nowhere exotic (visiting my parents in Springfield, Mo.). I enjoyed our long weekend trip to Charleston, SC., but I’m looking forward to traveling internationally again, hopefully some time soon (it’s been five years since I left the country). Prior to having kids, Drew and I were lucky enough to get to do some great traveling, both internationally and domestically (that’s me in Beijing in 2008 in the picture above). My favorite place was probably Paris, and I’d be happy to go back any time. But I’d also love to hit some places on my bucket list: New Zealand; anywhere and everywhere in South America; South Africa; and maybe Iceland now that I’ve seen gorgeous photos from my friends’ trip there last week (they did a road trip around the country in a rented campervan on a popular route called the Ring Road).
What’s on your travel bucket list? What’s been your favorite place you’ve traveled to? Are you hitting any cool places this summer?
