Do you do any traveling? Is there anywhere you've traveled to that you absolutely loved? Hated? Share memories, pictures, anything else!

Personally, I've traveled across the U.S. and Canada. I really love Yellowstone and Rocky Mountain National Park but I'm not a big fan of some of the "flyover states" like Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas. I feel like there have to be really wonderful areas in all of those states but I just haven't had the opportunity to enjoy it because we've always just been driving through them.

My dad was military, so we moved around a lot as kids. As far as vacation traveling, we've mainly done the beach (Florida or SC), Gatlinburg (almost every year growing up haha), and Disney World. I need to step outside my comfort zone and I'd love to do more traveling to different places, too. However I get in the habit of saving for Disney lately because there's just an extra dose of magic there!

So far I have been to 38 of 50 states and 10 countries. Most of them have been when I was younger and we would take family road trips. Although I will say that some of the longer ones have been with my husband and kids. I have been to both Disney World and Disneyland. They are two very different parks and I found that I really enjoyed Disneyland more. Out of the 38 states I have visited, Hawaii was my favorite. We hiked up Diamondhead, saw them filming Hawaii 5-0, swam in the Pacific, watched whales. It was simply amazing and a huge culture shock too because we were definitely a minority there then we are on the mainland.

I visited Europe when I was 15 for band. It was awesome. I loved England the most, but also enjoyed the architecture and food through Germany, Austria and Hungary. One of the coolest things that happened on this trip was getting to see Westminster Abbey and seeing the Poets Corner where Geoffrey Chaucer is buried, but along with others who are there or memorialized there too. We also got to meet Prince Charles who was visiting right across the street.

Wow! Seeing whales in the wild is a huge bucket list item for me.
