Best trip you've ever been on?
As much as I'd like to say our honeymoon, I've got to go with my two-week trip to Spain as a teenager. It was your not-so-typical trip with your High School. You see, the only people who signed up for the trip were me, four of my best friends and one other person. So all in all, it ended up being an international trip with my friends and one of our favorite teachers.
For two weeks, we ran wild through Spain traveling from Barcelona down to the coast and back up to Madrid. We went to our first night clubs, saw priceless art, tasted Valencia oranges in Valencia, swam in the Mediterranean and cheered on Spain as they played Portugal in an insane football game.
I also found the city of my dreams on this trip, Seville, Spain. With winding cobblestone roads, tiny tapas places left and right and the most picturesque churches, I cannot wait to take the Husband to this city one day.
Best idea for a girls weekend trip?
The beach. End.Of.Story. Nothing beats a weekend with your feet in the sand, a drink in your hand and a girlfriend to gossip with. And when you own a beach house just a few hours from home it's kind of a no-brainer.
Best idea for a couples trip?
This one is tough. I'm a firm believer in seeing the world and traveling to as many places as possible. That being said, every season in life takes you a new direction and for me that means a different travel bug. Wherever you and your partner think is best for you is where you should go!
For me and the Hubs that often means a quick trip to the mountains but every now and then it may mean a trip to somewhere more on the wild side, like Vegas.
Best vacation on the cheap?
Pick a city close to you, a hotel with decent prices and hit the road! Places we like to go: Charlotte, Asheville, Charleston. Even just a day or overnight trip. Just getting a dinner sans Toddler, a night to pamper yourselves and a morning to sleep in can make a world of difference!
One of our favorites:
Place you most want to visit?
I've said it before and I'll say it again: Italy! As an art junkie, it's my ultimate destination. Pre-parenthood I'd hoped for us to take a month-long trip. Those hopes have been put on hold for now. But before life is said and done I plan to travel the span of the entire country seeing the art and architecture I spent years studying.
