I am a travel addict

Okay, it’s true. I am addicted to travel. Kevin says I’m never as happy as when I’m planning a vacation and I guess it’s true. Every time I catch up with a friend I haven’t seen for a while they always ask “And where is your next trip?” I really should have been a travel agent. We even have a plan of our overseas trips for the next ten years. The following photos were taken in Scotland on our first digital camera in 1998.


2007 – Mexican Riveria/Disneyland DONE

2009 – UK (possibly Europe)

2011 – Antartica (40th birthday present for Kevin & myself)

2012 – Canada/Alaska or NY/Washington/WDW

2014 – Africa

2016 – Europe

Our goal is an overseas trip every second year and a local trip the other year.

Annie Adams (a fellow blogger) put together a list of 50 her family want to travel to. I think this is a great idea – problem is I think it would be easier to do 50 places I don’t want to travel. Kevin laughed when I told him about his cause he think all I want to do is Disney. While I LOVE disney the main reason we’ve done it so much is cause it’s such a great family vacation with young kids. Christy will be 8 around the time of our next overseas trip and should be interested in seeing more of the real world. At this stage I’m thinking UK (esp. London) and possibly a European cruise and maybe extra time in Scotland for just the kids and I.

Anyway, here’s 50 random places I want to travel to (the most):

1. Perth, Western Australia ( whale sharks, dolphins at Monkey Mia)

  1. Ah some great places there!! We did a big trip around Europe in 1999 and while it was a bus tour (you know the type, it’s Tuesday we must be in Rome!), it identified several places we would love to spend more time. We also did 6 weeks driving ourselves around England, Ireland, Wales & Scotland in the same trip and loved it. Would go back in a heartbeat!! It’s on the list for when B gets a bit older..

  2.

  3. Wow. Great list of destinations.

    I’ve been to the following that you listed. What a great idea!

    Germany–LOVED it. Could have moved there.
    Switzerland – So beautiful!
    England – I didn’t like the food. LOL
    Venice-Very dirty, but they are cleaning it up. Such rich history there.
    New Orleans-I was just there last month. I was completely surprised how CLEANED up it was.
    San Francisco-Loved it! Fisherman’s Warf was the best!
    Montreal-could have just been me, but the people were rude. 🙁
    Rome & Pompeii-Unbelievable. So much was preserved in Pompeii. Rome was just breathtaking.
    Washington, DC-Been several times. (I’m an Army brat) 🙂
