Close to this time last 12 months I wrote a submit about 5 places I would like to go to in 2015. I only ended up making it to two of the areas on my record (though we already have our plane tickets for a trip to a third place on the list—but it really is not until finally February). So I did a quite medium task on in fact acquiring that list “carried out”. BUT! I traveled so significantly much more final year than I ever have in a single yr just before, and I critically loved every single minute of it! I think there is something about saying your objectives out loud, or in this case, creating them down and publishing them to the Internet, that just can make it all the much more intentional. I ended up obtaining options to go other areas that weren’t on my list, and that was wonderful also.
So, I guess my level is, I believe that list was a super positive thing for me. And for that cause, I’m back this yr with a new checklist for you. 🙂
1. Salt Lake and/or Moab, Utah.
I’ve been to Salt Lake a couple of times, as soon as to communicate at a conference and once when Elsie took me for a college graduation trip. But one particular issue I’ve never done in that spot is hiked around to see some of the lovely landscape! When traveling for entertaining, a single of my really favored issues to do is hike and consider images. I enjoy photography, but I largely get photos of food and craft tasks for ABM-relevant things, which I completely love, but it truly is entertaining to do some thing diverse when on holiday. And Utah looks SO lovely, so I’d enjoy to get that chance this yr.
2. Yellowstone Nationwide Park, or somewhere fairly in Montana/Wyoming.
I’ve never been to Yellowstone and it appears WAY great! Parts of it kind of remind me of Iceland in a way. So I would love the chance to wander close to this region of the nation and see what there is to see (and consider about a single million pictures). 🙂
three. Eureka Springs / Crystal Bridges / Arkansas in general.
If you can’t tell from my listing so far, one thing Trey and I talked about with regard to my travel lust for the 12 months is that we are going to consider and focus on seeing far more of the USA. We currently have an global journey booked for February (yay for Chile!), and it is just far more economical to travel inside the USA. And with there getting so several great areas to see that I’ve in no way been, this is a rather simple “limitation” to hold in thoughts. Of program we want to see the complete wide planet at some point! But this year we’re going to consider to focus on seeing more of our own stunning nation.
Anyway, this is a excellent example simply because we dwell only hours away (driving) from some truly beautiful spots in Arkansas. So I’d like to make it a point to visit Eureka Springs (they have treehouse cabins!) and also see one of the best ranking art museums in the USA, Crystal Bridges. It really is so near to us and I even now haven’t been but! Talk about not taking advantage of your location.
4. Antelope Canyon, AZ.
I very first saw some pictures from Antelope Canyon on Kinsey’s IG and I was hooked! This seems to be like such a unique and gorgeous location, I’d enjoy to see it in particular person. I only wish it was closer to Phoenix so I could go see some close friends at the identical time. 🙂
5. Big Sur, CA (or possibly Los Angeles…we’ll see).
I really like California. I lived in Los Angeles for a handful of many years just following college, but I was as well busy trying to make adequate funds for lease at the time to genuinely get to consider advantage of how beautiful this state really is. I have never ever been to Big Sur, but every single photograph I see of that location has me performing a double take. Plus I just Enjoy the Pacific Ocean it was the 1st ocean I ever saw when I was around ten or eleven years old (my family went on a Disneyland journey and we went to the seaside even though in Los Angeles), and I even now really like it just as considerably right now.
What about you? Are you guys organizing to see more of this wide lovely planet or ours this yr? Any suggestions about any of these locations? I am all ears. 🙂 xo. Emma
