I have a secret obsession I need to admit to.. I am a Wanderlust-er... ( is that a word?) I find myself spending hours on my computer planning trips and yelping all kinds of new foods to try in all kinds of new destinations.. and then doing it all over again with a new location. Often times I think about how many pounds I'd gain from all the delish food in Italy. How long is too long to spend out in private-over-the-water bungalow in Bora Bora?
I thought I was crazy but I recently read a great article on the every girl (here) and I do the same thing.
I'll wanderlust all week and then spend the weekend doing things inspired by that weeks "destination". My husband and I will find a new dish and put it to test - we love trying new cuisines. We'll even lounge around on a lazy morning and watch hours of YouTube travel vlogs. But is there really a substitute to just going there?
My husband and I went to a beautiful resort in Riviera Maya, Mexico two years ago for our honeymoon. It was the best vacation we've ever had. The resort was amazing, the service was phenomenal and the food was just incredible. My husband usually gets home sick shortly after he arrives on vacation but this place left us both dragging our feet when we had to return home. We had then decided to make traveling a priority but life always passes you by and sometimes too fast too soon. We were initially so overwhelmed with work and family life that we found no time to travel but eventually started to get cabin fever. We needed to get away!
