Planning your summer vacation? Is this the year you tick off one of your family bucket list trips? Here’s the inspiration you need get planning, whether you’re dreaming about taking an African safari, eating a croissant in Paris or photographing the Grand Canyon.
Do you have a family bucket list? We wrote ours on a napkin while waiting for dinner at a Red Robin. It included taking an Alaskan cruise and a hot air balloon ride. It’s a work in progress, especially now that my kids are grown, with busy lives of their own.
So, what’s your #1 summer bucket list destination? Put away budget concerns and don’t worry about whether or not you can take time off from work.
If money wasn’t a concern and you had an unlimited amount of time, where would you go and what would you do? This year, I’m really hoping to get to Costa Rica. You?
Visiting Paris with the Kids
One of my favorite summer family bucket list trips was our trip to France. In addition to checking out the Eiffel Tower and stuffing our faces full of the best baked goods in the world, we took an amazing day trip to Normandy to see Omaha Beach and other D-Day sites. Walking through history was an emotional experience and one I’m so glad we shared as a family.
