A few things Caleb and I are passionate about? Vacation, time off work and food. Naturally, its a wonder we have only left the country twice. It got me thinking...if we didn't work full time jobs, and had unlimited cash at our fingertips...what would be our top travel goals?
Australia. This is one place we've always said we'll visit! It just sounds incredible. Hello, if the local's accents aren't enough to make you want to visit, maybe the baby koalas, kangaroos, amazing beaches, opera houses, bridges and coral reefs are? Sidenote; a recent episode of Modern Family just re-confirmed my love for this country I've never visited -- any Modern Family fans out there? ;)
The Maldives. Ever since I showed Caleb this little patch of islands, we've decided it needs to be on our bucket list. I mean, I feel like even a few days here would detox an entire year of stress. Just look at that water!!! They even have an underwater dining experience. SAY WHAT?!
Fun fact of the day. The Maldives has a beach called the "Sea of stars". What appears as a mirror of the stars above, the water looking like that is actually from something called "phytoplankton" - and holy crap I sound like a geek! Anyway, this is absolutely on my bucket list. I can't wait to check this one off.
Venice. SO many of our college friends studied abroad here, and it always made me so jealous! Hearing them tell their stories about how different life is over there, just sounded so beautiful. I just want to ride a gondola under a bridge, eat macaroons, and go to their markets!
Ireland. Well hello, P.S. I Love You was filmed there, but besides that? It just looks insanely gorgeous. I think it would be fun to kiss the Blarney Stone, hike the green mountains, see the castles, and talk to the locals. I could sit and listen to people with accents for hours. It would just be an added bonus if they had some awesome stories!
Now...back to reality. It's cool to know that when Caleb and I get out of debt, trips like this won't be too far out of reach. Obviously children will come (with time), but we're looking forward to the days where we can take a romantic getaway to one of our dream spots.
So tell me, where would you go if you could?!
