So I'm supposed to write about 5 things from my bucket list this week, but because creating my "25 before 32" list was already a stretch, I decided just to limit this to 5 bucket list travel destinations.
I have actually been to Hawaii before- Allison and I went to Honolulu with our parents when we were 16- but Brian has never been and we've always wanted to go together.
Allison and me in 1999... can you guess which twin is which?
2. Alaskan Cruise
I've actually never been on a cruise before, and to be honest, the whole concept isn't all that appealing to me. I'm not a big boat person and not being able to go out and explore (or shop) at my leisure seems like it would make me antsy. But I could definitely get on board with this (pun intended):
I'm going to be honest: this is on the list in no small part thanks to
movies chick flicks like "P.S. I Love You" and "Leap Year." And let's not forget the musical, "Once." I also learned that there's a town in Ireland called "Clara," so clearly we need to see it.
We talked about going there on our honeymoon and then remembered that we had zero money. I'd still love to go one day, and even more so after my parents' recent trip that produced pictures like these:
This would be my mom in Venice, unintentionally matching the gondolier
Am I the only one that thinks of "Mamma Mia!" when I think of Greece? Regardless, it looks beautiful. And this is one more area that I would consider seeing via a cruise ship.
Now accepting donations to anyone interested in sponsoring any and all of the above! ;)
