Oh Darling, Lets Be Adventurers

     Happy Friday! September always meant a new school year, new challenges, new classes and new personal goals. However, now that I've completed school I have to find new goals to set for myself. Especially now being in my twenties I think it's important to travel while I still can. Being in your twenties is all about exploring who you are, making memories and experiences that you can take with you long after you decide to settle down, get married and have kids. So I made a deal with myself to travel to one place that I've never been before at least once a year. It doesn't have to be somewhere far away, just someplace new I can take in and check off my list. This year I will be able to travel to two new destinations, I went to Myrtle Beach for the first time in June and I loved it and this September I am headed to Stratton Vermont for a girls weekend. 

Here are some of the other places on my list of "Places to Go, Things to Do":
Punta Cana, Dominican Republic 

      This has been on my bucket list for years since I saw pictures from a family friend's wedding. I'm a beach girl and I'd love to go to an all inclusive resort and be pampered for a week. Plus when you stay at resorts they have plenty of activities to do. My girlfriends have been telling me since high school I need to plan a trip here for all of us.... Girls, I promise I'll get us there one day! 


      I've never been out of the country but I know that my first trip to Europe will be Italy. I have family still living over there and I would love to visit them and experience my heritage first hand. I'd like to go over there for a week or two allowing myself to travel to both Northern and Southern Italy. Two other activities pushing me towards Italy... the food and the shopping. Wouldn't it be amazing to have a traditional Italian meal?! My mom and I vowed we would go together one day and I will make it happen. 


    I dont know if you're noticing a trend but I like tropical locations near the water...shocker. My mom went to Hawaii when she was my age and she said it was absolutely beautiful. I wish I could surf so I could go there and ride the waves (another bucket list idea?!). The only thing that worries me is I am a terrible flyer... I'm typically either nauseous or crying during the entire flight so having to be on a plane for that long makes me a little nervous. But, I think I'd get over it real quick though when I have crystal clear blue water waiting for me at the end. 


       After I plan a trip to Italy, I'd really like Greece to be my next visit to Europe. I always thought Greece was beautiful but I knew that I had to go there after I watched that Keeping up with the Kardashian's episode where they went to Mykonos on vacation (sorry they Kardashians are my guilty pleasure, don't judge me). Those beautiful white villas overlooking the water are to die for.

San Diego, California

     The nerd in me vows to make it to San Diego one year for Comic Con. We tried to get tickets this year, even booked a hotel but they sold out within minutes. So one day I'll have my 3 day pass to "Nerdvana" where I can sit in on my Game of Thrones Panels and dress like a super hero.... haha!

Key West, Florida

     Since I'm super broke and will probably be for sometime until I can build my savings back up from paying tuition my next trip will most likely be to Key West, Florida. It's not a far flight and it's definitely the cheapest on my wish list. I really would love to go snorkeling or swim with dolphins, something to do with being outside with nature in the water. So summer 2014 I hope you're ready for me!

Have you traveled to anywhere on my "Places to go, Things to do" list?
What's on your travel bucket list?


  1. I would LOVE LOVE to go to Italy, Greece and Hawaii FOR SURE!! They are on my bucket list also :)

    Sincerely Miss Ash

  2. My boyfriend and I want to go to France for our first trip together... it will be a while till then, but I can't wait :)


  3. I would love to go to Italy or Paris!


  4. This is such a lovely post! I would love to visit Greece someday! Happy Friday girl! I hope you have a great weekend!

  5. Everything the Dalai Lama says is insanely wise. Are you going to make it to any of these destinations anytime soon or is it just the two?

    1. Hoping to head to Key West in the spring or next summer...pending I work hard at saving my money!

  6. I have always wanted to go Greece and Mykonos is just beautiful! :) xx

  7. YOU Must go to Italy. Just seeing that picture I want to go back. Go to Lake Como, Italy! You will not be disappointed.

  8. Beautiful pictures!

  9. Amazing! I'm going to Florence soon!x

  10. I would love to go back to Italy! I loved Greece too. I've been to Hawaii twice for work so it wasn't really a vacation but still beautiful.

    I have bad motion sickness so I always take dramamine before flying and that usually helps. If you aren't feeling good because of nerves then might not be that helpful though :/


I appreciate you taking the time to check out my posts! I read every single comment! xo
