Y’all, I’ve thrown my summer plans out the window. I was so excited about traveling the world, eating exotic foods, and drinking amazing wine. Sadly, the universe had different plans for me. Like everyone else, I’m practicing social distancing to slow the spread of COVID-19. Yet, dreaming about these bucket-list vacation ideas has gotten me through self-isolation. My bags are ready and packed for the moment life returns to normal.
Who doesn’t want to visit the City of Love? I can’t wait to see the Eiffel Tower in person. Tears come to my eyes just thinking about it. I also want to go to the Louvre and see the exquisite artwork for myself. Paris is full of history, and I can’t wait to experience all it has to offer. Of course, I’m dying to try French cuisine, too. I’m saving my pennies so I can make it the most spectacular trip possible.
The Rocky Mountains
Mother Nature amazes me. I love being outside and smelling the fresh air. That’s one of the reasons why being stuck at home is so hard for me. Yet, thinking of driving through the Rocky Mountains has gotten me through this challenging time. I can’t wait to take a mini-road trip and stare at the majestic rocks. In the meantime, I’m obsessively planning for my trip. I’ve made the ultimate road trip playlist, and I’ve read everything there is to know about driving safely through mountains. Y’all, I’m so ready for this vacation!
New York City
I’ve always wanted to go the Big Apple. I want to visit Central Park and Times Square. After all, Sex and the City is one of my all-time favorite shows. I need to see what all the fuss is about! So I’ve been using this time in self-isolation to make sure that my trip is perfect one day. I’ve made some DIY changes to my wardrobe to upgrade some of my outfits. I’ve also researched must-see pots in NYC that most people forget to visit. I can’t wait to see the sparkling lights.
Dreaming about these bucket-list vacation ideas has gotten me through these challenging times. Another bonus is that I have more time to save up for these trips. When the time comes, I know I’ll have the time of my life. The hardest thing will be deciding where I want to go first.
