Travel Traditions

We are surrounded with traditions from birth and may create a few of our own in adulthood. We sorta fell into a travel tradition with our 1st Wedding anniversary celebration in San Fran and have continued the tradition year after year. We love traveling, exploring & adventuring – live in the moment and look forward to the next great adventure in our lives. I was not that girlie girl growing up believing that my true prince would ride in on a steed and take me away to a life of royalty; however, I am a romantic and believe everyone has a soul mate who will be your best friend and partner experiencing life’s great adventures together. I am so lucky to have found mine.

Keeping it Close to the Heart

Do you have a travel tradition?

We have several travel traditions – below are the top 3.

#1 – The tradition closest to my heart is celebrating our Wedding anniversary by traveling somewhere special. We did not plan on this becoming tradition. We wanted to celebrate our 1st anniversary in style because we were apart 5 months out of our first year of marriage.

1st Year – San Francisco, California

2nd Year – Monterey, California

3rd Year – Mexican Rivera Cruise

4th Year – Crater Lake National Park

5th Year – Mendocino, California

6th Year – Columbia, California

7th Year – Murphys, California

Who knows where we will venture next? We keep it simple and try not to top it one year to the next because that is not the point of the tradition. The tradition is about celebrating each other and the love we have for each other. Marriage is very much like a rollercoaster and sometimes you need to shake it down and other times you need to shake it up.

#2 – Camping. We had some money saved for a trip to Ireland and then made the decision to buy a pop-up tent trailer – BEST DECISION EVER!!! We try to go camping at least 2 times between May and September with 1 big, long camping trip between June to August. Our pop-up becomes our home sweet home on wheels as well as makes it very easy to travel with. We have camped in many places throughout the West Coast over the past 5 years and every experience is unique.

#3 – Wine Country. We have been doing more traveling to various wine regions in California over the past 2 years. This includes traveling to various wine events throughout California. My favorite wine regions at the moment are Amador County and Mendocino County and enjoy the Hopland Passport Wine Event in Mendocino County in the Spring and Fall.
