Summer is here!!!! AHHHH Everyone say it with me… “SUMMER IS HERE!” Ok, I mean we were pretty mush feeling summer anyways with these hot days but there is just something about the first official day of summer that makes me want to roll the windows down, turn my radio up and just drive. Not that I got to do a lot of that today but I got to do a little 🙂 Summer also means that it’s time to travel! I love to travel. It’s one of the things that I look forward to more than anything. Long vacations, short vacations, weekend vacations, if I can travel I’m a happy girl.
I can spend months planning the perfect vacation. I’ve got a lot of places marked off my travel bucket list but still have a pretty nice list that I need to complete! In high school I went to London, Paris, Amsterdam, and The Black Forest in Germany. In College I went to Cancun and New Orleans. The year before I got married I traveled to Maui with my family and I’ve been to Orlando and Disney World a ton of times growing up. Summer is just when I have to get out and about! While a lot of my traveling has been with family, blogging has also brought some of those amazing travel moment into my life!
Last year I went to Disney World for a Food Blogger Conference and took my mom with me. Being able to take my mom with me on a mini vacation to Disney was priceless.
Just this past May I went to Disney World for another Food Blogger Conference and was able to take my husband with me. It was his first time to Disney and it was amazing to see Disney through the eyes of someone that’s never been. I did not want him to miss out on the Magic of Disney or the awesomeness of travel! Disney is amazing and I can’t wait to go back. Animal Kingdom is probably my favorite part of Disney, ok well maybe not my FAVORITE (that’s reserved for the Haunted Manson and Peter Pan’s Flight) but Animal Kingdom ranks pretty high up there.
I absolutely love seeing all of the animals and walking to the different countries.
I have to travel! If I don’t, I get really bad FOMO. What is FOMO you ask? It stands for the “Fear of Missing Out”! Did you know that I can’t even watch concerts or travel programs on TV because my anxiety goes through the roof because I’m sitting at home and not out there?! It’s crazy! I have to get out of my hometown and see the world or I start to twitch haha.
Next week I’m headed out on a blogging adventure in Tennessee and Missouri! After that my next trip is the beach for hubby’s birthday (I imagine that there will be plenty of Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Honey and Jack Daniel’s there haha,.. you had to be on our last trip to get that haha ) and then the next trip isn’t until November! For that trip I’m headed to the Dirty Dancing Hotel in VA with a fabulous group of food bloggers! What am I going to do until then? I need more travel?! Oh that’s right, I’ll be planning our Hawaiian Vacation for February! I can not tell you how excited I am to be back on that Island! I can feel the sun on my skin now! Come on Hawaii!
Have you ever sat on a beach in Hawaii, drinking a fruity drink, listening to the waves? If not, you’re missing out, big time! If I had a ton of money I’d be there right now! Yes that’s where I would go! Where would you go? If you could plan a trip right this second, where would you go? Get to planning!
