Friday, Sept 9: If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be? Why?

"The world is a book, and those who do not travel read only one page." - Saint Augustine

My love for travel, it is something that has been instilled in my heart for as long as I can remember. In middle school I had an entire England trip planned by checking destination books out from the library and printing travel information online. Of course in middle school this was not something that was going to happen and I most likely forgot some major details; however, I dreamt and dreamt of such a trip. (It is still something that I would absolutely LOVE to do someday). My most perfect destination to travel to would be a place where I can cover all activities, meaning:

hiking, swimming, beach bumming, perhaps a bit of snowboarding, camping and of course, cute downtown boutique shopping. 

How ideal would all of those combined into one vacation be?? My heart is soaring right now. 

Basically it comes down to a backpacking trip to a few different locations. I love flying and I love road tripping so it would be pretty amazing to travel via backpack to different areas. If I had to pick ONE destination, New Zealand would cover just about everything from the list.

There have been numerous moments in my life when I am standing in awe at the beauty of God's creation. Whether that be in my own backyard or climbing rocks in the Pacific Ocean in Chile. He truly is an amazing artist.

Flying is my favorite means of transportation for travel. The atmosphere and the hustle and bustle is so exhilarating, I love people watching and imagining where in the world they are heading and for what purpose. I find it fascinating.
Psalm 46:10 [He says, "Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth."]

Where is your dream destination? What adventures would you get yourself into?


  1. I'd love to visit New Zealand as well! As a nature lover, I'm sure I'd be kicking and screaming when it came time to leave!

    1. Haha I would be kicking and screaming right there with you! It would be a tough place to say goodbye to for sure. We can always call it a "permanent vacation" :)

  2. New Zealand sounds amazing, especially with the LOTR movies being filmed there too. I hope you can make it there someday!
