Something I haven't really talked about a lot on my blog yet is my absolute love for travel. I love flying on airplanes and arriving in new places. I love exploring and sight seeing and, of course, shopping. This may be surprising after learning about my anxiety but I think I like travel so much because it's a situation that everyone feels a little frazzled in and as long as I have a Home Base while traveling, I feel alright.
Currently it's cold, snowy and icy here in Oregon on the west coast of America. And while I love the cold weather more than any other type of weather, I am finding myself missing the sun in California. I've never really felt the desire to travel to those warm, sunny places to escape the cold, but today as I was watching Remi's Hawaii Vlogs and browsing through the Bath and Body Works Semi-Annual sale online, I found myself desperately wanting to grab some tropical smelling lotion and hit the beach.
I've decided instead to let this blog post be an excuse to look up some tropical destinations and compile a list of places that are currently at the top of my Travel Wish List:
1. Bora Bora
TJ and I have been wanting to go to Bora Bora since we got together. It's our goal vacation spot. We dream about those huts that are built over the water. We want to be able to jump off of our porch into the clear ocean and relax in the sun. It's our dream Honeymoon destination.
2. Oahu, Hawaii
3. Southern California
Fine... I'll admit it: I fell in love with this place while we were there. It's so cute and exactly the right size for a city and it doesn't really get too hot or too cold. I'm not sure how I would like the weather staying in the same range for most of the year, but it would be easy to keep a wardrobe for.
If you could go anywhere in the world right now (and money wasn't a factor) where would you go? Are you feeling my tropical vibe? From those of you who have been to these places, where else do I need to research?
