Today’s post isn’t running-related at all. It’s all about traveling!
Matt and I got our first taste of traveling on our honeymoon and since then we have not been able to stop thinking, researching, dreaming, and booking more trips. It’s funny since prior to our honeymoon, we both barely been outside the US. We didn’t step on a plane until college and grew up vacationing at the Jersey Shore (Wildwood for me, Ocean City for him). Since gallivanting around Europe in 2009, we can’t seem to get enough.
We decided to honeymoon in Europe because why the hell not? Since we both never been there, we couldn’t decide on just 1 country to visit so we went with the European cruise. The cruise itself was not our thing (old people doing the hokey pokey and macarena – no thanks), but getting to see so many European cities in 2 weeks was fantastic.
A year later we went to Australia (sidenote: our trips always fall post-marathon – no idea why 😉 We went to Australia 5 days after the Steamtown Marathon in October 2010). Words can’t describe Australia. I’ll show pictures instead.
This past May we went to Ireland (again, post-NJ Marathon). So many pubs, so little time.
NEXT UP….Kauai in May and Paris/London in June!!!
We have been thinking about Hawaii for some time now and May would be a perfect time to go (post-Boston, of course!). Paris and London we could not pass up. Matt’s brother-in-law teaches a summer course in Paris and will be there throughout June in an apartment. All we needed to do was pay for airfare. See how we couldn’t pass it up?!?! And Matt came up with the idea to tack London on (it’s only a 2 1/2 hour train ride from Paris to London). So yes, we are very excited!
My question for you…if you could plan a trip anywhere in the world, where would you go (and why)? I love hearing people’s response to this question!
