This year, I have an even deeper desire to see the world with my husband. We have caught the wanderlust bug for a while now, and while we have been blessed to travel, with wedding plans, work and just general life occurrences last year held us down a bit. We are excited to explore and have been dreaming up all the places. We partnered with Transat last year to discover their luxury collection in Cancun, and have even more to do down south, Europe and more. Here’s a curated list of where we’d love to travel to in 2017…

I have been dreaming about wandering down the streets of Stari Grad in Hvar and floating on a boat in Dubrovnik for years now. This year, this destination is top on my list! My sister went to Croatia for her honeymoon, and ever since she’s sold me on this gorgeous destination. I mean, just look at that water! Eastern Europe is definitely a spot we want to dive into more: Montenegro and Macedonia (where my family is from) are nearby destinations I’d love to branch off to on this trip as well.

Neal and I could live off of pasta, gelato, pizza and red wine for the rest of our lives and be blissfully happy — which is why I beg the question, why have we not been to Italy yet!? We definitely need to change that this year! There is so much to see in this country, and I love that Transat has multi-city packages to see more!

I recently added this to my list of places we’d like to go after seeing so many beautiful posts on Instagram. I’m definitely a beach girl, but I love to see history and architecture. Love that Portugal combines both!

I have always been so intrigued about the charming towns of Czech Republic, and World Heritage sites. There’s so much influence of the medieval times that would be a dream to photograph! I would love to explore Prague on our Euro-trip…
