Travel Bug Has Bitten

I have the travel bug itch. You know- that itch that can only be scratched by jumping in the car for a long ride or hopping a plane ride to somewhere far away and different than what your used to.I think this was all spurred by flipping through the photos of the trips we have taken over the years mixed with photos of all different resorts and beautiful places on StumbleUpon. There's just something about getting out of your norm and seeing other parts of the world and experiencing different cultures and environments.  It's refreshing and grounding.

Here’s a quick recap of some of the amazing places we have been:

All this has me on the search for the next place to visit.  With gas prices being so high and money being a bit tighter it’s likely to be a more local trip in the great state of Michigan (although I’m dying to go to Australia, Costa Rica and St. Lucia). I’d love to visit the west coast of the state since I’ve never really explored that area, or maybe a wine tasting trip to beautiful Traverse City.

Are you traveling the summer? Are you staying in state, visiting other states or even heading out of the country? What was the best vacation that you had?


  1. LOVE this post!! I love traveling so much and you guys have been to some AMAZING places! Favorite shot is definitely the one of him down on one knee holding your hand in front of the waterfall... gorgeous!

  2. @Rach @ This Italian Family
    Thanks! That picture is actually when we got proposed (under a waterfall in Munising, MI). He did a great job on setting that up!
    We're planning a trip to the Smokey Mts now, I can't wait! Do you have any trips planned for the summer?

  3. wow how cool we also adore traveling great snaps so where next


  4. Ooo Traverse City for wine tasting during cherry festival?! I've heard amazing things. Though that starts next week...
