I’m a dreamer. I add things & places to my Bucket List probably everyday. Some are feasible, some are a stretch, and others are a little bit ridiculous! Something exciting about this year, is I get to cross off at least one of those from my list. Here are three places I would like to visit in 2015. (I cheated a bit because one of the places I went to about two months ago, another place I will probably visit this year, and the third is probably not going to happen yet).
Located on the border of Zimbabwe & Zambia, Victoria falls is the biggest waterfall on the planet. The mist from this ginormous waterfall can be seen for a dozen miles. The Africans used to call the falls “Mosi-oa Tunya” which means “the smoke that thunders.”
While in Zimbabwe, we will most definitely be going to Victoria Falls! There are hiking trails, natural pools to swim in, bungee jumping, helicopter rides, and wild animals. Not sure how adventurous we’ll get (though I’ve always wanted to try bungee jumping)!
Savannah, GA (check!)
Back in late February, Kameron & I took a mini-vacation to Savannah, GA.
Savannah had been on my bucket list since I was a little girl in Girl Scouts. If you did not know, the founder of Girl Scouts, Juliette Lowe, was born in Savannah. After researching Juliet for a big research project in 5th grade, (where we had to dress up like the subject of our project & answer questions to all of the students’ parents) I had dreams of the lush Savannah trees & pre-Civil War era plantation houses. What a magical place Savannah was in my dreams.
& what a magical place Savannah is in real life! After our trip we posted a few articles: How We Spent Two Rainy Days in Savannah, 5 Things To Do When Visiting Savannah, 5 Things We Wish We Did in Savannah, & Tybee Island Lighthouse.
With a maiden name of Erin Doyle, what other country would be on my bucket list? (“Erin” literally means “Ireland” & “Doyle” is practically the most Irish last name out there!)
What do you picture when you think about Ireland? Nothing but rolling green hills, beautiful rocky cliffs, and quaint little pubs where the community is warm & welcoming. Doesn’t everyone picture that?
My family still has relatives that live on a farmstead in the countryside of Ireland. I would love to surprise them at the gate of their home, listen to old Irish tales & stories of the Doyle clan, while eating a big plate of corned beef and cabbage.
Now it’s your turn! What are three destinations on your bucket list for this year? Leave your answers in the comment sections, or go ahead & write your own blog post about it, and be sure to share the link with us!
