U.S. Travel Bucket List

Even though I’ve been to all but one U.S. state (just have Hawaii left), there are so many places I still haven’t seen! I thought it would be fun to create a U.S. destinations bucket list to go along with my international travel bucket list. Boston I should be able to check this off the list very soon – we booked a flight to Boston last week and are planning to go at the end […]

I love to travel. In my 29 years that I’ve been traveling, I’ve managed to visit 47 states, England, Ireland, Scotland, France, 8 Canadian Provinces, and the Southern Caribbean region. My friend Jenny and I began planning this trip around 5 months ago and managed to drive over 2,000 miles through Texas and New Mexico in 6 days, consuming as much Tex-Mex as we could. Here’s a brief re-cap of our trip: Day 1: San […]
