50 Things We Love about Travel

A few days ago, we were doing one of our favorite things- reading travel blogs, when we came across this awesome post by Traveling Around the World for Couples blog.  Their post lists 100 things they love about travel- complete with pictures and captions.  We were so inspired by their post that we just had to do one for ourselves.  We’re going to start with 50 things we love and then hopefully add another 50 down the road.

It was so fun to go back through our pictures and relive the travel memories that we’ve had over the past couple of years.  We’d highly encourage you to make a list of your own and leave a comment so that we can see what you have on your list.  Also, don’t forget to check out the post that started it all.

    So fun and awesome that one picture can tell so much of a story. Maybe Kieu & I should go through the old (virtual) photo album or smugmug I should say and see what some of our favorite moments traveling are!
