Monday Escapes: Travel List 2013

At the beginning of the year instead of making a New Year's resolution list, I prefer to make a travel (resolution) wish list and fantasize about where I want to go next.  This blog is called "Travel"moon after all.  Last year, with a newborn baby I knew that the wish list was probably going to be just that, a fantasy.  But this year many of those 2012 travel wishes are coming true, and some by chance rather than design.

First on the list was Sweden.  Not only will I be traveling to Sweden, I am going to be a bridesmaid in my friend's wedding that is taking place in a castle.  Certainly a far grander and meaningful trip than I imagined when I put it on the list.

I will also have the chance to go to Copenhagen.  I have wanted to travel there ever since I saw the movie Prince and Me.  Anyone remember that one?

Number two on my list was a trip to somewhere (anywhere) in the Caribbean.  We are going to the Dominican Republic on a family vacation, and on a recent trip down the Pinterest rabbit hole I discovered that the photo I originally posted on my travel wish list was actually of the Dominican Republic.  Hmmmm if that isn't fate...

Can't wait to be on a beach that looks like this!

I had San Diego on the list so I wouldn't feel like a complete travel failure, and I did actually make it there quite a few times.  I  will be traveling there again this month before heading up to Santa Barbara for a bachelorette party weekend.

The last spot on the list I haven't mentioned was Charleston, South Carolina.  Who knows maybe it will happen after all, or maybe it will just make the 2014 list!

  1. Fantastic blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?

    I'm planning to start my own site soon but I'm a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like Wordpress or go
    for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm totally overwhelmed .. Any ideas? Appreciate it!
