Our Travel Bucket List (For Now)
One of the foundations of our relationship is seeking out the unknown through travel. We've been to some pretty incredible places together but are constantly day dreaming about and consequently planning new trips. Here's a list of our current bucket list—one of these places we'll get to cross off in just a few short months!
1. Bali, Indonesia
Bali is at the top of our list because it embodies everything Eric wants in a vacation—beaches, ocean, adventure, and relaxation. The pristine beaches and opportunity to do a lot or a little are pretty enticing, and we've only heard good things about this destination.
2. Paris, France
“If you are lucky enough to have lived in Paris as a young man, then wherever you go for the rest of your life, it stays with you, for Paris is a moveable feast.” Paris has been at the top of my (Meghan's) list ever since I read about the it from the perspective of Hemmingway and Fitzgerald—there must be a reason so many people dream about Paris. I can't quite put into words why I'm so drawn to Paris as a destination, but hopefully I'll be able to capture the feeling after our trip here in November!!
We really do live for adventure and Patagonia seems like a place that has more than enough adventure to offer. From Torres Del Paine National Park (pictured above) to Ushuaia to Tierra Del Fuego National Park, it seem like an outdoor lover's dream destination and offers everything from skiing to backpacking to mountaineering and sightseeing.
4. Banff, Alberta
Banff is only a 10 hour drive from Seattle but with all of the sights to see along the way, it could easily turn into a week-long road trip. With places like Lake Louise and Moraine Lake to explore and skiing at Lake Louise and Sunshine Village, this is a place we'd have to visit both in the summer and winter seasons.
5. Costa Rica
Costa Rica is another place that has everything Eric looks for in a vacation—beautiful beaches, lush forests, and picturesque landscapes, as well as ample opportunity to get out and explore or just relax oceanside.
We're crossing one of these places off our bucket list this year—hopefully we'll get to all of them eventually. What are some of your bucket list destinations?
