I am really behind on doing random days of Julie’s 10 Day You Challenge, and since I had a busy day in Boston yesterday for FitGirl, I thought this would be a great day for “6 places.” I mixed it with 3 places that are my favorite, and 3 places I would love to visit!
3 Favorite Places:
3) New York, NY
Growing up, our family split vacations between NYC and my #1 favorite spot. I have always been obsessed with everything that makes up New York, and while I always dreamed of living there, I know it’s not the atmosphere that I want anymore, but it is still one of my absolute favorite places to visit!
2) Manhattan Beach, CA
My favorite Manhattan. When I spent time in Los Angeles, I spent some time with a guy who lived in Hermosa Beach, and we would often find ourselves going over to Hermosa and Manhattan Beach to spend the day, grab brunch, drinks, etc. If I could move anywhere right now, and bring my family and friends of course, it would be Manhattan Beach. One of my favorite places hands down. The picture below is on the pier, which was one of our first dates!
1) York Beach, ME
My Memere and Pepere had a beach house right on the ocean, so ever since I was a little tyke, we have vacationed here. The house is still in the family, and we try to get there for a vacation every other year. This is my favorite beach to spend time at, and since it’s only an hour away, I will go out of my way to spend the day here instead of beaches just a few minutes closer. So many memories at York Beach. My Dad’s side also has a house on the other end of the beach, so it’s always fun to go to their place on summer days and nights. The family house is on that main road that you see below with the houses on it.
3 Bucket-List Places:
3) Seattle, WA
I’ve been deeply obsessed with Seattle ever since first watching Grey’s Anatomy when it aired. I know it’s weird to say that a show has made me dying to visit a city, but it’s true. My childhood best friend lives out there and seeing his pictures makes me need to go there so badly! This is definitely my must-travel-to-in-the-US top bucket list item.
Greece is just so beautiful, with its bright blues and crisp whites. This is actually where I want to go on my honeymoon, so I am hoping that my future husband is fine that I already picked our honeymoon location.
Who doesn’t want to visit Ireland?! I would love to be able to spend weeks here just backpacking across the land and taking it all in. Maybe I will even meet my future husband here like she did in PS I Love You.
