Lately, all I can think about is travel. Our last trip to Australia left me suffering from the travel bug and now all I want to do is roam the globe with my husband.As a little background, I was born in England, and since then, have lived in four different countries (England, Germany, Japan, and now America). I have also travelled to at least five more countries (I'm sure there are more but I was young and don't remember them all). When I moved here. I had travelled a lot and was ready to grow some roots. Now that I'm married, and I've seen how much fun hubby and I have when we travel, I'm ready to become a wanderer again.Robert is the best travel companion! He is fun, enjoys the sights with me, and even gets a little romantic! Granted, before the trip he is completely indifferent, but when we get there we have a blast!I'd love to explore some of these countries/cities with hubby. It's my travel bucket list if you will:Hawaii (tops my list)
Venice (I've been, but I'm too young to remember it)
Atlanta (for the aquarium and coca cola museum)
New Zealand (I've been here too, but not with hubby)I'd love to include hubby's list, but as mentioned, he's kinda indifferent on travel unless we are actually there. Anytime I ask him where he wants to go, he doesn't usually have any suggestions.In just three weeks, we'll be taking a long weekend at Walt Disney World for my birthday. I'm excited for so many reasons. One because we're traveling again, two because it's Disney with my hubby, and three because it's our first theme park together. We're big kids and I can't help thinking we're going to have a blast playing in the parks all day. Plus, it should cure my travel bug for a while, right?What does your travel bucket list look like? Do we share any locales?
