What Comes Next

As soon as I came back from Spain, I knew I wanted to travel again. Really, if I could have just come home for a day or two and then leave again I would have been perfectly fine with that!
I always wanted to travel, but going to Europe only made that desire stronger.

 part of my heart will be in Spain!

Do I have any immediate plans to travel? Unfortunately, no. I am still in school and can’t take the time off to travel too much and I don’t have the money to travel to too many places!
I do know that this summer I will be traveling somewhere inside the United States, but specific plans have not been made yet. Then in spring of 2015 I will be traveling to Puerto Rico unless there is a drastic change in plans!
Until then, the only thing I can do to make me feel a little better is look at pictures in the travel section on Pinterest. I have to admit, that is my guilty pleasure whenever I am in bed about to go to sleep. I will sit and go through the pins for a few minutes at least once a week. Here are a few of my recent favorites!

Santorini, Greece This at the top of my bucket list!  In fact if I don't make here before I die, just scatter my ashes here; that'll work for me! 


Riomaggiore, Italy.  Such a beautiful place! Went there for our honeymoon.


New York City 

New York City

Catherine Palace  | Saint Petersburg, Russia (East Europe) 


Lastly I will leave you with two of my favorite travel tips! 

Talk to people who live there or who have traveled before you and get
recommendations if you are looking for good places to go! I had many
people recommend places I should visit in Spain, but since this trip was
a missions trip I wasn’t able to visit them this trip!

Keep a travel journal! I wrote in my journal every day while I was in Europe and it helped me remember so many details that I already would have forgotten! 

I really wish I had one of the two journals I gave to friends for Christmas presents as my travel journal! But I know both of those journals have gone to good use 😉 I really just love the quote on the one and the classy look of the one with the Eiffel Tower! I will have to go back to TJMaxx sometime soon and try to snag a cute one for myself that is fitting for a travel journal.
