Our Top 10 Places to Visit

Filed Under > Everyday

EVER SINCE A TRIP TO CALIFORNIA LAST AUGUST (BIG SUR YOU WILL ALWAYS HAVE MY HEART), I’VE BEEN CONSUMED WITH THE THOUGHT OF “WHERE TO, NEXT?” 

BUT SINCE I’M NOT ONE WHO’S ABLE TO JUST PACK MY BAGS AT ANY GIVEN MOMENT, I’VE DEVELOPED QUITE A SENSE OF WANDERLUST FOR NEW PLACES TO VISIT. CLICK THROUGH THE SLIDESHOW ABOVE TO SEE WHAT MADE THE LIST OF TOP 10 PLACES TO VISIT; FROM ITALY TO MOROCCO AND BEYOND, THEY’RE ALL RICH IN BEAUTY AND DEFINITELY RIPE FOR SOME WANDERLUST. TELL ME, WHAT PLACES ARE ON YOUR LIST? CHEERS, KAT 

PARIS, FRANCE

PARIS, FRANCE

WE KNOW WE'RE NOT ALONE IN DAYDREAMING ABOUT WANDERING STREETS FILLED WITH BUCKETS UPON BUCKETS OF BLOOMS. UNTIL THEN, WE'LL BE READING UP ON A LITTLE PARIS STREET STYLE TO LOOK THE PART.

THE AMALFI COAST, ITALY

THE AMALFI COAST, ITALY

WE'VE BEEN PRACTICING OUR HAND AT A LITTLE AMALFI COAST CUISINE. AND THE SECOND WE PULL THE TRIGGER ON THE FLIGHT, WE'LL BE STOCKING UP ON TURKISH TOWELS TO BE READY TO HIT THE BEACHES LIKE THE LOCALS DO.

MARRAKECH, MOROCCO

MARRAKECH, MOROCCO

AH, THE MARKETS IN MARRAKECH. IN WHAT WE IMAGINE TO BE RUG HEAVEN, WE'LL USE OUR HAGGLING SKILLS TO SCORE A TON OF GREAT FINDS. WE'VE ALREADY SCOURED THESE RUGS THROUGH AND THROUGH, AND OUR HEARTS ARE SET ON STAYING AT THIS STUNNING BOUTIQUE HOTEL.

BLACKBERRY FARM, TENNESSEE

BLACKBERRY FARM, TENNESSEE

A BIT CLOSER TO HOME, BLACKBERRY FARM BOASTS BREATHTAKING SITES AND RELAXING ACTIVITIES THAT WOULD DO WONDERS FOR THE SOUL. WE'LL BE MIXING UP ITS SIGNATURE GLUTEN-FREE CORNBREAD UNTIL THEN.

TWELVE APOSTLES, AUSTRALIA

TWELVE APOSTLES, AUSTRALIA

AUSTRALIA HAS ALWAYS BEEN ON THE LIST, BUT DISCOVERING THESE INSANE ROCK FORMATIONS, DUBBED THE TWELVE APOSTLES, GAVE US EVEN MORE REASON TO HEAD TO THE LAND DOWN UNDER. AND SPEAKING OF THE LAND DOWN UNDER, HAS ANYONE TRIED THIS STUFF??

CASTLE HILL INN, RHODE ISLAND

ICELAND

ICELAND

WE KNOW OUR SWEATER GAME WILL BE ON POINT FOR A TRIP TO ICELAND. AND WITH A GOOD BOWL OF HOMEMADE SOUP, WE'D PROBABLY ONLY EMERGE FROM OUR COZY DIGS TO SEE THE MAGICAL NORTHERN LIGHTS.

WILLAMETTE VALLEY, OREGON

WILLAMETTE VALLEY, OREGON

KNOWN FOR ITS WORLD CLASS PINOT NOIR, WILLAMETTE VALLEY EARNS A SOLID SPOT ON OUR LIST. YOU WON'T SEE US SANS GLASS IN HAND THE ENTIRE VISIT.

TULUM, MEXICO

TULUM, MEXICO

LAST BUT NOT LEAST...TULUM. THOUGH IT SEEMED EVERYONE AND THEIR MOTHER WENT TO TULUM THIS PAST YEAR, WE MISSED THE BOAT, AND STILL MOST CERTAINLY DREAM OF SLEEPING UNDER SHADY PALMS AND SEEING LITTLE TERRACOTTA POTS IN WINDOW SILLS.

    I’m headed to Portugal end of July and to Istanbul from there before returning home. Super excited!! Love your wanderlust list.

  • Kat Neunaber / 03.23.2015

    PORTUGAL IS TRULY AMAZING, I VISITED WITH MY FAMILY WHEN I WAS YOUNGER! AND I’VE HEARD WONDERFUL THINGS ABOUT ISTANBUL AS WELL…HAVE THE BEST TIME EVER! XO

    Did you like the vegemite? Not me, ewww. I think it tastes like what beef bouillon would taste like.
    I do love Australia and I’ve visited the 12 Apostles twice. It is truly a breathtaking place. I particularly love the small town of Lorne, and Kinnett River where we saw white cockatoos, multi colored parrots and koalas in the trees. Did you just love the road signs saying “in Australia drive left.”?
