Our Travel Wishlist in 2019

Travel has always been something Matt and I have enjoyed doing
together. There’s something really special about the shared
experience of exploring new places and cultures with each other.
Last year was a whirlwind for us. Most of the places we ended up
going were more spur of the moment trips with little to no
planning. We didn’t end up going to most of the places we had on
our
2018 list
. Some of the destinations we ended up going were for
work and the rest for quick family getaways. This year we want to
be more strategic with where we go and what we do at each
destination. I would love to hear your thoughts on the places we
are looking to visit. Where have you been? What should we do there?
What are the best places to stay, eat, and take photos? So looking
forward to hearing from you! Here they are…

Paris

It’s been over 4 years since we were last in Paris. We went as
part of our delayed honeymoon and fell in love. It was freezing as
we went a couple days after Christmas that year and then took a
train to Amsterdam afterward for New Years. The architecture, food,
wine, shopping, everything, what’s not to love? We are planning
to go in the summer, perhaps for our anniversary. Where should we
eat when we are there?

Mexico City

We have wanted to go here for a while now. We almost went last
year for Day of the Dead, but we just couldn’t swing it last
minute. Mexico
is our favorite country and we have been all over the county
except for Mexico City. Would love any recommendations? I hear the
weather is amazing nearly all year long. I can’t wait to finally
go!

Miami

I’ve never been. I know. We have always had to reschedule this
trip for one reason or another. This year is the year. Being from
the midwest, Florida was always a top destination for vacation
growing up but never made it that far south. We’ve been to

Sarasota
 and
Clearwater
 with Sebastian so Miami is our next stop. I can’t
wait to experience it for the first time! Any and all
recommendations are appreciated!

Switzerland

Matt has been wanting to go here for the last couple of years to
shoot photos. We are planning to rent a car and take the Jungfrau
train through the Swiss Alps. We’re debating whether to go in the
fall or first part of winter. The towns we are planning to visit
are Lauterbrunnen, Gelmerbahn, Lucerne, and hopefully more. Have
you been to Interlaken? Would you recommend going there as
well?

Peru (Machu Picchu)

We love South America and wanted to do something a little
adventurous this year. Everything we see and hear about going to
Machu Picchu sounds perfect for us. This is something we are both
really looking forward to experiencing. Not to mention it’s one
of the 7 Wonders of the World. Has anyone been? How should we get
there?

Cartagena Fashion

Buenos Aires

This is another spot in South America we would love to
experience for a few days. Hopefully, we will be able to stop there
before or after Peru. We shall see. I hear it has an amazing
culinary scene. Side note; there is a great spot in the East
Village called Buenos Aires.

Montreal

It’s close. We have never been and it would be a great long
weekend trip. After our trip to
Quebec City
, we realized how much more of Canada we want to
see.

Palm Springs

Last year we had so much fun at
Coachella
. It was our first time in Palm Springs and we plan on
going back. We want to take Sebastian with us this year. It is such
a beautiful place and super relaxing.

Hawaii

This will be our longest trip of the year staying for a few
weeks. Matt and Sebastian have never been and it’s going to be so
much fun to experience a few different islands. We will for sure
spend time on Oahu and Kauai. A few of the places we want to go are
Kualoa Ranch & Nature Reserve, Napali Coast, and the Haiku
Stairs. What are some things we should do with Sebastian while we
are there? I’m so excited about this one!
