2018 Travel Goals

This year we don’t have much on our travel list because we are spending much of our money on the wedding. Butttt we do have a few trips in mind that won’t break the bank we would like to do before the wedding and we have our honeymoon destination picked out so obviously thats on this list!

  1. Vermont. I really want to learn to ski this year. I want to have hobby that both Bobby and I can do once we have kids and I think skiing would be great for us to both learn at the same time. There are quite a few mountains within a close drive that we can learn before going away for a weekend.
  2. Cape Cod. A few day trips. Some of my favorite memories are with Bobby down on Cape Cod. We didn’t make it there much this past year but I would like to take a few trips this summer doing the things we love.
  3. Hawaii. This I cannot wait for. I already bought two dresses for this trip. We are going to do two islands Maui and Oahu. We go sit with a travel agent in a few weeks to get it all booked! If you have any recommendations please send them my way! I’ve literally been in honeymoon planning mode for the past few weeks and have been reading blogs and pinteresting my life away.
  4. Atlanta. This will be a post wedding trip. We will take a long weekend to go see the Falcons play since we weren’t able to this year. Bobby is all sorts of hyped because of their new stadium.

To be honest these few things would be fun to do but if we only make it to Hawaii for our honeymoon this year I would be okay with that too. I think 2019 will be our year of travel and enjoying life as newlyweds.

Where do you guys hope to travel to this year?

Maine Vaca 2016: Acadia National Park

Happy Monday Friends, I’m back to recap more of our trip from last month 🙂

There are not enough words in the dictionary to accurately describe how amazing & beautiful Acadia National Park is. When we were planning our trip this was one of the key factors, and we spent more than half our time taking in the scenery that Acadia & Mount Desert Island had to offer. Here are my favorite places we explored while on our trip:

  1. Cadillac Mountain: I had heard from MULTIPLE people that Bobby & I had to watch the sunrise on Cadillac Mountain. During the fall & winter seasons this is the first place in the US that you can see the sun. And all though it was dead middle of summer it was still the most beautiful thing I have ever seen. IMG_0264
  2. Jordan Pond Trail: The main reason for this hike is that we knew wanted to grab lunch at Jordan Pond House after. This trail is an easy 3.5 mile one that loops around Jordan Pond. This was probably my favorite trail that we did.IMG_0213.jpg
  3. The Bubbles: North and South Bubble Mountains stand at 872 feet and 766 feet, respectively. We had one of the best views of them while we were walking around Jordan Pond. If you’re looking to hike in Acadia, though, the Bubbles are a great place to start.IMG_0200.jpg
  4. Thunder Hole: This has to be included as a stop when you visit Acadia. We knew going to visit during the time that we did that we wouldn’t get to witness the amazing sound we heard happens. But if you’re lucky when a strong enough wave crashes into there, water shoots up and gets you wet as if you were waiting on the bridge that is near the log flume at an amusement park. The sound that I’m talking about is a thunder-like boom, which is created by water colliding against the air, forcing it out of the inlet. The views walking around the surrounding area is breathtaking and fun to explore!IMG_0185.jpg
  5. Bubble Rock: is basically a gigantic boulder that looks as if it’s about to fall off the edge of South Bubble Mountain. We attempted to do this trail but with Lola (I primarily held her leash) we were finding it too difficult. But if you’re in Acadia and you don’t have a 6 month old puppy, you should definitely check it out. When you see it, everyone takes a photo of trying and push it off, but people have been doing that since the boulder has been there— long before Acadia National Park even existed — and it still hasn’t budged.
  6. Echo Lake: This lake was really close to our campground Smugglers Den. It was a really beautiful lake that we walked around while Bobby looked for places to fish. It was also where we taught Lola to swim without her leash! It is a great place to bring a pup, as it’s very calm and the water is always clear.

That wraps up my favorite spots while on our trip, stay tuned for the best places to eat 🙂

Until Next Time,

Rebecca
