Travel Month 2015

Travel Month 2015 // Twin Stripe

Happy August, friends! It’s one of my favorite months on the blog: travel month. I have a some exciting posts lined up that are sure to inspire wanderlust. Get ready to be transported to new and exciting locations and maybe even book your next vacation.

Last year I shared my travel bucket list and today I want to share a few a of my favorite travel destinations for you to add to your bucket list.
  • African Safari – My family visited Kenya six years ago for a safari. Watching lions, elephants and giraffes (to name a few) in the wild is simply amazing. I highly recommend adding a visit to Africa to your bucket list.
  • Bahamas – The sparkling, blue water around the islands is shallow, so it is easy to sit back and relax in the ocean. Instead of planning a trip to Nassau and the Atlantis, select a different island with less tourism so you enjoy the Bahama’s true beauty and can truly relax.
  • Barcelona, Spain – Chad and I visited Barcelona on our honeymoon and feel in love with the colorful Catalonia city. There is something for everyone there: great art (Park Güell, Picasso Museum), beautiful beaches, and delicious food and wine.
  • Burlington, VT – If you are looking for a mountain getaway, be sure to check out Burlington and the surrounding area. We rented a condo there many years ago and had a great time. One of my favorite activities was the alpine slide!
  • San Diego, CA – The weather is always perfect in beautiful San Diego. You can easily spend days in Balboa Park visiting museums, the zoo and attending cultural events. If that’s not your speed, there are plenty of beaches, too.
  • Tuscany, Italy – This is easily my favorite destination on the list. I studied abroad in Florence and fell in love with the region. There are so many small villages to discover, art to see and wine to drink that it is a must visit on my list.

What are you favorite travel destinations? What do you suggest I add to my bucket list?

  1. Hi Katie! I love your August travel series! One of my favorite destinations is Oia on the island of Santorini, Greece. The blue-domed churches coupled with the white buildings and the setting sun in the distance is breathtaking.

What do you think? Katie loves to hear from you!
