There are so many places in this world that Christopher and I want to visit, but several years ago we picked our top seven places (outside the US) that we wanted to see:
Italy (where Christopher’s family is from plus all the history!)
Greece (all the history!)
United Kingdom (seeing all the places where my family came from!)
China (I’ve always wanted Christopher to see where I spent my teen years – plus all the history!)
Australia/New Zealand (the beaaaaaches!)
Caribbean (the beaches!!)
The Holy Land (we think it would be pretty amazing to see the places where Jesus walked)
We marked the Caribbean off our list in August of 2011 with our very first cruise. Since then we’ve been back three times (September 2014, August 2015, December 2015) and have loved the gorgeous water, perfect weather, and sandy beaches every time!
Then three years ago we picked Italy as the next one to mark off our list. We absolutely LOVED it! And from the minute we came home, we were planning our next big trip. It wasn’t long before we chose GREECE! So we’ve been setting money aside for that here and there and this year is the year! 🙂
Except well… you see… it was supposed to be a Greece trip. But then we thought “wow, we’ll be that close to Italy… we might as well pop over there and see our favorite things again…” which then led to the conversation of “Melissa (my sister) and her family live in Prague… if we’re going to do more than one country we should totally visit them!” which then led to “Look at all these awesome countries in between the Czech Republic and Italy! We should visit Switzerland!” and then next thing you know our Greece trip had expanded into a MANY countries trip, ha!
So my friends, come this September we will be visiting:
England (I hesitate to even put this on here since we’re only in London for a layover. But it’s a really long one so we’re hoping to be able to leave the airport and at least find fish & chips somewhere! We’ll be back to see all the sites on our official UK trip later on!)
Needless to say, we’re SUPER excited!
Have you been to any of these places? Feel free to pass on any advice!
