A co-worker of mine recently went to Spain with his wife (before she got pregnant. Or maybe that’s when she got pregnant. Hm.) But I was browsing their pics on Facebook and I felt a pang of jealousy, as is often common when I look at someone’s pictures from any vacation that involves crossing an ocean. It’s not like we don’t travel and take vacations. We do. But the window of travel opportunity is getting smaller as we think about the future. There are so many places I want to see now, as opposed to when we’re older, and I just get overwhelmed thinking that we only have a couple more years to do these things.
If I had to rank them in order, the top five places on my must-see list include:
France (not just Paris though. I’m more interested in seeing the smaller towns.)
Switzerland (or Germany, Belgium, Northern Italy…just someplace that looks like THIS)
I’d also love to go back to Spain and not only explore Barcelona more, but also visit Madrid. And I’d like to go back to Italy, spend more time in Rome and Tuscany, and maybe see Venice or Milan. So many places to see!
Of course, come January, I’ll be craving the beach instead. My top five beach escapes would have to be:
Maui (we went to Oahu in May, LOVED it, and now want to see the rest of the islands, starting with Maui)
Costa Rica (with beaches, volcanoes, rainforest and water falls, we’d never get bored)
Turks and Caicos – just because all the celebs go there.
