Money & PTO were not an issue, these are the top 7 vacation destinations on my list! (Note: these are all within the States, I'll save international goals for another post.
1. Vegas - Gambling, Shows, Hoover Dam (I am such a nerd)
2. Alaska - wildlife, glaciers, Juneau
3. Hawaii - yes please
4. Texas - friends, scenery, the ALAMO
5. Yellowstone - hike all day, drink all night
6. Colorado - Denver/Breck/Vail - I cannot ski, but I'm okay with that.
7. Maine - Lobster. Hiking. Relaxation. Jordan Pond.

Out of that list, I've only ever done Maine before. And that is a trip I would take every year if I could - the peace, the hiking, the LOBSTER, oh yes please. My parents chose to do Hawaii on their own about 15 years ago, and I can't blame them. With my geo-geek dad, they had a wonderful time exploring volcanoes, taking helicopter rides, etc. I feel like people are shocked that I am 28 and have never been to Vegas, but when you turn 21 after the rest of the planet, everyone had already done Vegas. And, I somehow don't have any friends living there (hello, hospitality industry?!). Don't worry though, I'll make Kevin take me soon enough.
We've been talking about taking a cruise (another thing I've never done), and an Alaskan cruise sounds like so much fun! Texas is on the list mostly because one of my bests lives there - and I would love to visit her and that ginormous state! The rest are just trips on my list - ones that I would love to take with my husband, and do our usual. Our usual being, the cheapest means of travel, finding a hotel that I can use my wonderful Hilton Employee Discount at, and taking a billion photos. Kevin and I both have the same travel style - we need a little down time, some historical options, outside activities, and great food!
