The Big Trip List

Alright, I got around to doing this finally even though this list is in my head and verbally stated with Evan on an almost weekly basis.
I must saying looking up information and "semi-planning" for these trips makes them look more achievable to me and gets me fired up! With a little saving here and there I think these trips could totally be done and a huge chunk of my bucket list crossed off. :)

*Top 5 Big Trip List*
(In no particular order)

#1-ENGLAND- I went when I was 15 for 2 weeks and had the best time ever, however, I was 15 and didn't understand how blessed I was to get to view so many places rich in history and my pictures have dwindled down in the past decade since I went. That trip was also when I had my very first seizure which many of you know I had for 7 years and never was diagnosed with epilepsy or a seizure disorder (just migraines and seizures for 7 years) so some of the first days are a bit foggy but the rest of the trip I remember in detail. Here are some of my reasons for wanting to go back..
*Organized Travel = Bliss
*Oh, Mister Darcy!
* Prince William- I can dream!
*London Calling

#2-JAPAN- I love this culture, the history (have I mentioned how I am a history nerd?), the food (they eat practically anything!) and the passion Japanese people have for life. I would love to go someday just to people watch.
*A modest tour
*My Husband and I's candy store
*The Gardens

#3- A Cruise- Alright I know this doesn't seem like a BIG TRIP however, Evan and I have never been on a cruise and I think it would be really cool to do one! One of these 3 would be ideal...
*Western Caribbean
*Disney Cruise? Um, YES PLEASE!

#4- HAWAII- Evan and I have agreed and are definitely going to do this but it's just seeing how much we can save up for it to determine if it'll be just the 2 of us or us and some family and a few close friends. We plan on going to Hawaii for our 10th Wedding Anniversary and renewing our vows, which I think would be amazing!
*Maui Me Again.
*Calgon, Take me away!
Again, we're still in the planning stages but I think Maui would be best.

#5- DISNEY WORLD- Evan and I went here on our Honeymoon and it was so much fun. I had never been before but Evan had. We stayed in the wilderness lodge for the first few days (next to a family of 5 no less, um, awkward but funny too) and then we moved to the Polynesian Resort which was AMAZING, I highly suggest doing the Luau (sooo good). We both want to go back and take Avery so that gives us a few years when she's big enough to actually ride the rides and semi-remember it :) Um, not to mention the Harry Potter Theme Park close by...*I admit I'm a dork*..
*When you wish upon a star...
*Other "must do's" in Orlando
*Too much fun in a 50 mile radius!

Hope you enjoy checking out the sites and maybe causing a travel bug in yourself. Let me know what you think or know of these trips, I literally have a binder full of information for each of these trips and we're already saving for 1 of them in the near future (Next summer) just depends on which is more cost efficient for what we have saved by then. :)

Have a great week!!
Love & Blessings,
Britt & Co.


  1. Um, okay. DEFINITELY invite us to Hawaii, we love it there and can take you all around! :-)

    I suppose we could just tell you . . . but where's the fun in that? We could be your own personal tour guides!

    I'm in on the Japan trip, too. :-) Just let me know when we're going!!!!! <3

  2. Gavin and I are constantly talking about where we would travel if we had the funds. We have a long list .... but here it is...

    New Orleans, a Cruise Caribbean and Disney, San Francisco, NYC, England, France, Holland, Italy, Chicago, Disney World, Disneyland, Hawaii, and a trip driving up the North Eastern US including Washington D.C., Boston, Colonial Williamsburg, Philly, etc.

  3. Ooh, for us, it would be:
    1) go back to British Columbia Canada and stay at Emerald Lake Resorts, where we went on our honeymoon.
    2) go to west Ireland (I've been several times and love it)
    3) Norway & Switzerland (Bryan's been)
    4) Seattle (we have family there and love going back when we have the money)
    5) South Africa
    6) The Philippines (where I was born)
    7) China
    8) Argentina (and then, hop on a boat and go to Antarctica)
    9) Chile
    10) New Zealand
