I love to travel. I mean LOVE it. I decided years ago not to keep a bucket list. I mean, why wait, right? If you want to see something, go see it! I have a particular love for the beach and anything ancient. Before my husband and I got married, I only had one child–my oldest daughter. When she was a teenager, I dragged that poor kid behind me to ruins all through Mexico. I could actually see boredom baking off of her in waves. I think I scarred her for life.

She tolerates them a little better now that she’s an adult, but she’s relieved when my husband will go with me so she doesn’t have to.  So, all’s well that ends well, right?

Here’s a look at a few of my favorite places. I’m always on the lookout for more. Suggestions are welcome!
