Travel Bucket List...

travel facebook covers 3694showing.jpg
Y'all. Can I just say how much I am loving these prompts?! Talking about my love of traveling is one of my favourite things to do (traveling obviously being my number one favourite thing to do)! I've actually been meaning to write out my Travel Bucket List for awhile now - ever since Helene posted hers last August. I love to travel but have a teensy, weensy problem where I fall in love with everywhere I go and then I want to continue to go back to those places over and over again. I need to start experiencing the new places and taking some time away from other places (I just love Vegas SO much you guys!). I want to see the world while also re-visiting some of my favourite places. Not having a vacation to look forward to makes me severely depressed - I need travel in my life! My Travel Bucket List also includes the places I have already been -  most of which I want to see again someday very, very soon

I'm sure I'll be adding more places to the list every now and again as I think of them - and hopefully I'll be checking some of these off the list soon! When I went to Europe I did an EF tour and I think I'd like to do a Contiki tour of Europe one day (soon!). I also want to take a long road trip through the US someday. I've got a lot of saving to do before I get to some of these places but I'm going to get a start on some of them sooner rather than later!

Found Love. Now What?


  1. You forgot Boise, Idaho...hahaha. And add Cinque Terre to Italy - trust me on that one! Man now I think I need to do a travel bucket list too!

  2. Pack me in your suitcase on your next trip? Thanks. You've been a lot of places! Of the places you haven't been and that I have, I definitely recommend Boston and Charleston (I was born there)!

  3. no newfoundland on the list? tsk tsk!! :P Nunvaut would be SO cool. BUT so cold. weh

  4. I love this! Traveling is a passion of mine too and just this morning I was thinking that exact thought, about how I want to go back to places I've already been because I love them SO much (Disney was on my mind this am) but how I need to branch out and see new places because there's SO much I want to see! Decisions, decisions for next year's vaca.


Thanks for the love! If you have a specific question please feel free to email me at krmathison@
