for the love of wanderlust - traveling the world

Hi Ocean Dreamers! 
I hope you had a wonderful weekend.
I'm still in AZ doggie sitting but soon I'll be back in UT for a time.
I'll be blogging more consistently soon. :)

It's been a while since BK and I have gone on vacation and lately I've found myself thinking of all of the fun destinations we'd like to visit! From Italy to Ireland, I would love to go hiking and enjoy the nature at both of these locations. I would also love to visit the castles and think of all that took place there centuries before. Since the world is ours to discover, wouldn't it be nice to go wherever we'd like to go?

Here are some sites I'm dying to see:

Tuscany, Italy

Italy is known for its gorgeous scenery. It has a magnificent landscape which is combined with beautiful rolling hills, ancient villas, mountains, rivers, and even islands! I know for a fact that Tuscany villa rentals are the way to go when traveling to Italy. It's a perfect way to enjoy the intimacy of the land while staying in a beautiful villa. I would love waking up and seeing nature straight out my window - I wouldn't be able to wait to head outside to greet nature and all there is to discover.

Blarney Castle, Ireland 

I love castles and from what I've glimpse on Pinterest and on the internet of Ireland, there are several castles that I would love to visit and see. Blarney Castle is one castle that looks absolutely stunning. It was build nearly six hundred years ago and is one of Ireland's greatest treasures. There is the Stone of Eleoquence which is found at the top of the Tower. You're supposed to kiss it! ;)

Here's a little bit of info behind that kiss at the Barney Castle:

"For over 200 years, world statesmen, literary giants, and legends of the silver screen have joined the millions of pilgrims climbing the steps to kiss the Blarney Stone and gain the gift of eloquence. Its powers are unquestioned but its story still creates debate.


Once upon a time, visitors had to be held by the ankles and lowered head first over the battlements. Today, we are rather more cautious of the safety of our visitors. The Stone itself is still set in the wall below the battlements. To kiss it, one has to lean backwards (holding on to an iron railing) from the parapet walk. The prize is a real one as once kissed the stone bestows the gift of eloquence." - via www.blarneycastle.ie
St John, Caribbean

My BK has been to St John in the Caribbean and he always talks about taking me there. In all honesty there is nothing I'd rather do than enjoy the sunshine and ocean dreams with him all day long. If you pull up pictures of St John you'll see crystal blue seas and sailboats everywhere. One day I hope to go sailing there and just enjoy the sights - they absolutely look beautiful! 
Are there any romantic destinations that you'd love 
to go with your hubby, boyfriend, or significant other?
Oh for the love of wanderlust!
