Chapel Thrill

15 Mar

Last weekend I had the loveliest time with my dear friend Lindsay in Chapel Hill, NC. We trampolined, hung out with her fun philosophy friends (which included late nights and lots of laughs), cheered on the Tar Heels and met the sweetest dog Silke.

A mini vacation was exactly what I needed. I couldn’t get enough of the beautiful sunshine, patio-worthy weather and time with one of my favorite people in the whole world. I felt more relaxed this week and ready to take on the rest of winter. But please come soon spring.

2014 travel plans

28 Feb

Surprise! It’s snowing again in Ohio… All this cold weather has me longing for warmer days and vacation getaways. I love travel planning and daydreaming about all the places I’ll explore. Here’s where I’m planning to head this year…

– Chapel Hill, NC, in March –

I can’t wait to visit my dear friend Lindsay in Chapel Hill. I made it there a couple of years ago, and I’ll be heading back next week. The last visit was so lovely. I can only imagine the shenanigans we’ll get into this time around.

– Boston, MA, in April –

Fenway Park

My little brother is running the Boston Marathon with his squadron – what better reason to visit? And we’ll get the chance to hang out with my cousin Alli as well.  We’re planning to attend a game at Fenway Park, and I really hope we do the Sam Adams Brewery tour.

– Berlin, Germany in May –

The bf and I still haven’t decided if we’re staying in Germany or heading somewhere else, but I’m kind of liking the idea of a staycation in Berlin. Mainly because I have a list of at least ten new restaurants I want to try. And we could do a few day trips to Hamburg or other neighboring cities that I have yet to visit.

– Eugene, OR, in July –

I’m so excited for this trip! My cousin Kelsey and I will be visiting my sister over the 4th, and I know it’s going to be a blast. Can’t wait to check out Eugene and Portland and see why my sister loves Oregon so much.

– Colorado Springs, CO, in August –

I had such a great time with my family last year, so I’m heading back to the US Air Force Academy for Parents Weekend. Hopefully Sebastian will join us this year! We’re all renting a big house together in Colorado Springs – good times are guaranteed.

– San Francisco, CA, in September –

After a weekend in Colorado, I’m hoping Sebastian and I can do a California trip. I really want to visit San Francisco again or maybe do a wine tour in Northern Cali. Endless options here.

– TBD trip in November –

Every few years I end up doing a mini-vacation around Thanksgiving. I don’t know where I want to go yet, but maybe somewhere warm. It will probably be snowing by then or at least cold. Caribbean anyone?

– Europe for NYE –

These past two years, Sebastian has visited the states over the holidays, so I’m thinking a trip to see him would be nice. The last time I was in Europe for New Year’s Eve, we spent it in Berlin. I wouldn’t mind visiting again.

Throw in a few wedding weekends, work trips and last-minute decisions to visit friends – this is sure to be another great year of travel.

What about you? Where are you heading this year?

5 Mar

I don’t know about you, but one of my favorite parts about traveling is planning the trip. I love thinking about where I might visit or the places I’ll see. It’s already the third month of 2013, and I’ve got the itch to start planning.

Here is where I’m hoping to travel this year:

Chapel Hill, NC

I had the chance to visit my friend Lindsay last spring and would love to go again.

Paris, France

Doesn’t springtime in Paris sound lovely? It does to me.

Colorado Springs, CO

AFA

Labor Day is family weekend at the Air Force Academy. I rarely get to see my little brother, and I’m excited to visit him there.

Berlin, Germany

Every time I visit, I fall more and more in love. Have to make it there again this year.

Milan, Italy

Milan Cathedral

Sebastian’s brother will be studying there this fall, and I think it would be a perfect time to visit.

What about you? Where are you going this year?
