Just to be honest I LOVE to travel, via ground and water that is! LOL I have never been on a plane and IDK if I ever will be. God didn’t give me wings therefor I don’t feel I was meant to fly. With that being said I LOVE a good road trip and being on the water. I know some of my travel destinations may seem quite odd considering I’m not too sure about flying, but hey a girl can dream! I love everything about being on or near the water rather it be a river, lake or, my fave, the ocean. I have already been to four different beaches and can’t wait to add more. The three I have already visited are Galveston Island, Virginia Beach, Perdido Key FL and Gulf Shores AL. Out of these I must say Galveston was my fave. I will get into that a little more in another future post so be sure to follow me so you don’t miss it.

Virginia Beach

Let’s kick this off with all the places I’ve already been and fun things I’ve done. Who knows some of y’all may want to visit them as well. First off if you have never been to the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area of TN you are missing out. This is a trip that we take at least once a year, even if just for a weekend getaway. If you decide to visit be sure to stop by the Island in Pigeon Forge and watch the water light show after dark! You will thank me. As stated above I’ve been to four beaches in four different states. I’m pretty sure I have salt water in my veins cause I could live by the ocean. My Daddy did always say I should have been a mermaid. I have also been to an event in Ohio at least 3 maybe 4 times and I had a blast. What event you may be asking… Well it’s the World 100 dirt track race that takes place out Eldora Speedway every September. If you are into that sort of thing it’s a must at least once in your life. The atmosphere and there is nothing like a sunset view over Eldora Speedway. Those are just a few of my top faves. I also love kayaking and floating on the lake. That being said if you also love kayaking and love nature you must kayak down Green River here in KY there is a waterfall along the way that people get out and play in and a rock to jump off of. If you decide to take this journey feel free to contact me for put in and get out locations. Although there is so much more I have done I’m going to stop here since that would be a whole post on its own LOL. Now to get into the good stuff….my very own travel bucket list.

That Eldora sunset I was talking about

Now for the good stuff. Where do I want to go?!? Oh the places I would love to go. LOL Anyhow here it goes. My number one most want to visit location on my bucket list is, you are probably thinking I’m like every girl and going to same Paris but nope not this girl, Rome y’all. I want to go to Rome and have since I was a little girl. I love the architecture and the history. The whole atmosphere there seems like something I would fall in love with. My fear of flying may however prevent this dream from becoming a reality. Next on my list is Ireland, yep another one I would have to fly to. I just think Ireland is a beautiful place and would love to see it in person some day. Third on my list, and not in any particular order from here on out is, a Dallas Cowboys football game. I have been to tour the stadium but never watched them play. Cowboys fan from way back. Loyalty to. Team does not change based on rather they are winning or losing at the time. We all have bad moments and we wouldn’t want people to stop liking us just because we have a bad moment or hit a rough patch. Next on my list is a cruise or in my case many cruises. I wanna see it all y’all. Just to name a few I would be interested in… Alaskan cruise to see the Northern lights, Caribbean cruise to visit as many tropical destinations as possible and for the kid in me a Disney or other kid oriented cruise. I want to also visit as many of the national landmarks as possible here in the US, hike in the mountains of TN, go on a sail boat, visit the locations in Georgia where Vampire Diaries, Orginals and Legacies were filmed. Yes fan girl here and I’m not ashamed. For those of you who are also fans who was your fave vamp? Klaus, Damon, Stephan or did you like someone else? Mine was Damon and mmmmm he could turn me into a vampire any day. LOL Speaking of things that go bump in the night I would also love to visit Salem MA. Heck I could probably live there to be honest. Somewhere on the coast though. I would be perfectly content with coastal living. Salem has always fascinated me with it’s history and of course their love for all things fall and Halloween. Seems like my perfect town to live in. I could go on forever with my bucket list for traveling since it’s like my favorite thing to do but I will stop here….for now. Happy travels and be sure to send me your must visit locations.

Beautiful view from one of my favorite places in my hometown.
