Daily Inspirations and Adventures

New York Times You Are KILLING ME!!!!!

leave a comment »

The New York Times just came out with their annual “Places to Go” list.  There are so many on the list that Mike and I have been thinking about going to . . .

Like RIO! (Well, because of Tory)

rio-custom1

and Nicaragua (The new surf spot!)

nicaragua-custom1

Australia (As you know I’ve been dying to go here for pretty much my entire life)

kimberley-custom1

New Zealand (If you’re going to Australia you might as well check out New Zealand too, right?)

NZ

South Africa (Safaris, wine and places like this . . . sign me up!)

Thailand (Awesome food, scenery and people . . . and cheap massages . . . sounds pretty awesome!)

Picture2

Ireland (Well, Mike has been there but I haven’t)

But after reading this I now want to go to these places too!

Montenegro (Um, yeah, the picture pretty much explains why . . .)

Montenegro, Adriatic coast, Bay of Budva, Sveti Stefan peninsula, the fortified village of Stefan-Svesti transformed into a luxury hotel

The Philippines (For the same reason as above)

Republic of Congo (aaaaaamazing)

And then, of course, the places I’ve been, which include . . .

Hawaii (Not the Big Island, but Maui and Kauai, which are close enough)

Paris (With Vicki for Valentine’s Day my senior year in college . . . it was freezing, I only knew how to order bread, cheese and wine . . . so that’s all I ate . . . and we spent 20 hours a day soaking in all of the art and nightlife Paris had to offer . . . nothing wrong with that . . . ).

Jackson Hole (Where we stayed at an amazing resort and got to ski the best conditions we’ve ever experienced)

Spain (Not Burgos, but Barcelona and Madrid . . . to visit Lauren while she was abroad)

Puerto Rico (With Vicki my senior year of college . . . stayed at a classmate’s INCREDIBLE house that overlooked all of Old San Juan . . .  such an amazing trip!)

Mexico (Haven’t been to Yucatan but I’ve been to Tulum, Playa del Carmen, Bucerias and Troncones)

and Amsterdam (I seriously need a re-visit, because I mostly only saw the inside of our bed and breakfast bathroom instead of the city when we were there last.  Gotta love food poisoning! 😦 )

US artist Mike Kelley exhibition in the Stedelijk Museum

I know someone who has probably been to every place on this list . . . Jamie Beck from the Between You and Me blog (which, if you don’t read on a regular basis you should).  I thought I had a fabulous 2012 . . . but mine doesn’t even hold a candle to hers (Actually – in 2013 so far she’s been in Palm Springs and Florence!).    Check out her 2012 recap!

Happy Friday!
