Hello friends 🙂
I’m excited for today’s post because I’ve been anxious to reminisce my traveling experiences in 2016. How appropriate “Traveling Through 2016 on Thursday” -okay, cheesy LOL
Traveling is something that fulfills me. I feel so strongly about the fact that there’s SO much in the world to see and I want to see as much of it as I possibly can. I’m blessed that I’ve been to the places I’ve been, seen things I’ve never seen before, and even revisited familiar places- but if there’s one thing I’m greedy about, it’s traveling, I just want more.
Let the wanderlusting begin…
LEGOLAND- Somerville, MA
Okay, no I didn’t have to jump on a plane to get here and no, I didn’t have to drive more than an hour (literally 7 min from my apartment in Somerville) but nevertheless, this in itself was quite a trip.
SIDE NOTE: Adults are not allowed into Legoland without a child. Except for, I think, the 3rd Wednesday of the month, it’s adult day. So I got to go with my favorite family; Yi-Ting and Noah and Lauren came along too!
Boston in Legos
And in conclusion: Legoland is REALLY cool and now I want to go see the one in Florida.
Also, in MAY-
Kathy (my sister) and I go on a yearly trip to Florida typically around end of May. This year we chose to go to Sarasota. We just wanted a nice beachy relaxing vacation and that’s what we got.
We visited 3 different beaches: Bradenton, Lido, and Siesta Key. All Beautiful crystal clear blue water and white sand.
We also visited the Ringling Brother’s Museum which was awesome.
MARTHA’S VINEYARD, MA
Britt and I always celebrate her birthday in MV (although her bday is in June) but MV will forever remind me of Britt. And although this wasn’t our first time at the rodeo, we did explore Chappaquiddick for the first time together. You can read more about MV here
Also, every year my mom, sister, and aunt go on a little weekend getaway to celebrate me and my mom’s birthday (which are only 2 days apart). This year we chose to go to Newport, RI- which is a place I’m very very fond of.
And then also in August-
NORTH CONWAY, NH
My favorite family; Yi-Ting & Noah, and Lauren all took a trip to North Conway for another long weekend. I’m totally not a mountain kind of girl but holy moly was this place phenomenal. Breath-taking, stunning, and that was only seeing it in the dead middle of the summer. I can only imagine in the Autumn or Winter months how gorgeous it is up there.
Some more in August-
Andrew and I did our Maine extravaganza- which you can also read here
OLD ORCHARD BEACH, ME
MARTHA’S VINEYARD, MA
but with Andrew, for his first time!
Also, in Sept, I went to my very first Patriots game which you can read here
Disney World & Universal Studios in ORLANDO, FL
Second time going to Disney, but first time as a grown adult. One word: Unbelievable.
And that’s it. A very successful year of traveling. I cannot wait to see what 2017 holds!
Did you travel anywhere this year? Where to!!!!? Share with me so I can live vicariously through you!
