We love to travel, but during the pandemic, all you could really do was read about interesting global destinations. We’re starting to plan a trip for later this year and I checked out these two magazines at the bookstore.
People seem to love checking off boxes on their ‘bucket list’ and these magazines are organized in checklist fashion. The first one was for US destinations and the second was for best cities anywhere in the world. We’ve gotten to 44 of the USA’s “Most Amazing Places” and 36 of the “World’s Greatest Cities”.
We’re stuck between doing a US National Parks trip out West, or going to Europe when our son might be in Paris working. Both sound like very fun bucket list adventures.
I’m ashamed to say how few national parks we’ve ever visited. It seems like you aren’t patriotic if you haven’t hiked at least the big ones, but other than Yellowstone & the Blue Ridge Mountains, I really haven’t. The fact is, there just isn’t many near where we live in MN.
At the same time, we’ve been to Europe many times, but I’m always anxious to go back. A former work colleague and high school friend are both there right now and posting pictures of their travels online. (One of the best things about social media is seeing people’s interesting travels, don’t you think)?
Regardless of what we decide to do, I’m sure we’ll have s lot of fun and create some terrific memories. What big trips are you in planning mode for right now?
