Fly Me Away

I love to travel. My husband does not. I am determined to raise children with a sense of adventure and a love for discovering new places.

I spend a lot of time thinking about where I would take them, if we didn’t have time limitations and if money were no object. Sadly, those two things mean our vacation options are generally based around visits to the Grandparents. Which is cool, but Sacramento isn’t exactly what I have in mind when I think about introducing my children to new cultures and scenery.

No offense, Sacramento. I love you and your tomatoes and your proximity to both San Francisco and Lake Tahoe.


But, there are places outside of California that I want to visit. I hope that, at some point, we can find the time and finances to travel to at least a few of the places on my Family Vacation Bucket List.

    New York City
    My favorite city. I can only imagine how it would blow their little minds.

    The town where I grew up. So very different than the town where my kids are growing up. Photo Source: lesliepear

    In my mind, we will take a month (or more!) and travel the entire continent. Avoiding vegamite along the way. Photo source: soham_pablo
  • Augusta National 5 of 11

    Admittedly a bit random. Our family likes golf and we talk extensively about renting a motor home, driving across the country and then spending the weekend at The Masters. Photo source: bjbrake

    I could probably just add all the National Parks to the list. Photo Source: CarolynConnor

    Not just because we have family moving there. I'd love to introduce my children to a culture so very different from our own. Also...dumplings! Photo Source: Francisco Diez

    Atlantis Resort, Bahamas
    I wanted to go here even before I had kids. I think it would be even more of a blast now! Atlantis Website

    We've done Disney, but have never been to Disney World. Maybe after our weekend at Augusta. Photo source: Angie

    I'd love to take my kids on an African Safari. But you'd never catch me on a boat in Hippo infested waters. Photo Source: adorenomis
