I briefly mentioned that I was fortunate enough to live overseas, which is, I suppose, where my love for travel was born. My husband and I lived in Baku, Azerbaijan for 15 short months, but the impression our time immersed in another country left on me was irreplaceable. I love new cultures, food, sites, and experiences. My time among the Azeri people was one of my most treasured experiences and continues to shape how I view the world today.
Since then, my husband and I have always traveled. We make time to travel alone together, just the two of us, and we have brought our three daughters - Piper, Ruby, and Nora (ages 6, 5 and 5)- along with us to Europe and the Caribbean multiple times. (We are big believers in bringing the kids with you!)
I'm often asked where my favorite destinations in the world are, and to be completely honest, it's an impossible question to answer. Each travel experience has meant something different to me. If I had to choose, though, I would say that it's currently a toss-up between Ireland and Greece. Ireland for the adventure, warmth, and hospitality we enjoyed and experienced. Greece for the stunning beaches, the ancient history, and the views I'll never forget.
We are often asked where we're off to next. Currently, our only upcoming travel plans are on a Caribbean cruise with Norwegian this November and I have my eyes on an adventure in the Swiss Alps in the next year.
