Five Fun Facts-Vacations

Since it’s about to be summer and everyone is about to start taking/planning vacations I thought it would be a great idea to list some of the places I’ve been and some of the places I would love to go…

~ Zach and I honeymooned in Virginia Beach. We would lie on the beach for hours just soaking up the sun; the weather was perfect during our honeymoon. We love crab legs and all along the boardwalk were amazing seafood restaurants. We had a blast doing absolutely nothing but lounging around on the beach celebrating our new life together, in hammocks and walking up and down the boardwalk.

~ Canada, Niagara Falls; When Zach and I first started dating he took me to PA to meet his whole family for the first time. His grandpa gave him the keys to his car and told Zach to take me to Canada for a couple days to see Niagara Falls. Talk about BEAUTIFUL. We were only there a couple days so I would love to go back and stay for longer; if you have never been I highly recommend it, it’s truly breathtaking.

~Mexico, Rivera Maya; Zach and I, along with another couple, went to Mexico for a week; this was our first vacation in an actual resort; I don’t think I could have ever prepared myself for how amazing it truly was; it was exactly like the pictures—the water was so blue! We had a great time; we swam with dolphins, took a mini jungle boat tour and went snorkeling—saw a barracuda and its baby…amazing vacation!

~Pennsylvania; I guess it’s just a given that’s another on of my favorites is PA. Zach’s whole family is in PA…the atmosphere up north is amazing; esp. where his parents currently live, it’s so relaxing.

~Some places I really want to go: Soon we will be going to Illinois as his parents will be moving soon; I want to visit the Bahamas, Hawaii…I want to go to Colorado and stay in a cabin in the snow…I want to visit Paris some day, I would love to go on a cruise…a little nervous about getting seasick because I have really bad motion sickness…but still think it would be an amazing experience…

Where have you been? Where do you want to go? Any amazing vacations you would like to share??

We always end up at Disneyland for the kids... or Stanford for heart stuff
with Owen. We honeymooned in Vegas, but I was too young to play any games. :( Someday... we'll take an amazing vacation.. just the two of us. But then again... I'll probably get pregnant in another EIGHT years and we'll start all over with little ones. ;) I am the type of mom that has the hardest time leaving my kiddos. Especially Owen now.

For our honeymoon we went to Myrtle Beach, and we went back almost every year since. We also like to go to Gatlinburg, TN and rent a cabin in the fall or in January or early spring...we really like to go anytime but the middle of summer. THis year we are doing something new for vacation and are going to a state park to camp for a week. I am really looking forward to it! I would like to go on a cruise to somewhere tropical, and I think I would like to go to Savannah, Ga sometime!

I love love to go to Atlantis; Zach and I were just talking about that the other night...oh and Jamaica!!!! You've been to some awesome places!!! I've never been to the east coast either....I'm so scared to go to NYC, after all I've heard about with tourist and whatnot and how tourist get mugged so easily, scares me...you go and tell me all about it first-ha!

Tiffany Pifer said...

I love Niagara Falls! It's so pretty!!!!! We need to plan a Hawaii trip together, haha!!

Girl, I am always telling people that if I could get paid to travel, I would pack my stuff and spend my life doing that. I love love love to travel and there are so many places I would love to go and I've been very blessed to already see so much!!!

Well I've certainly not had a privileged childhood & hadnt been on a real vacation before HS. I went to Disneyworld for my SR class trip before Graduation & it was awesome! I highly recommend getting park hoppers! Then David & I honeymooned in Atlantis in the Bahamas & I think it's honestly overpriced & over-rated! We had 100% better time in Orlando, FL at a resort-type hotel for a FRACTION of the cost! There's a great place there called Discovery Cove where we swam with dolphins & snorkeled-amazing! So there's still a lot of places I want to visit-San Francisco, NYC, Grand Canyon....I've never been skiing but it doesnt really interest me. I'm like you tho & get motion sick easily so I dont think I'll ever do a cruise! lol I cant wait for Rylie to get older & do family vacations with her!

ashlee said...

oh & i'm not taking a stab at anybody by saying i didnt have a privileged childhood-i just seriously have so many friends who do vacations all the time, sometimes twice a year & they kinda talk down on me sometimes because i "havent done this or been there or seen that" so just saying...not everybody grew up traveling
