What's on your Bucket List?

     We all have one.  Some of us have it written in detail.  Others have it in our minds.  Some of us haven’t yet figured out what should be on our list.  Regardless of where it is, we all have that list of things we want to do, places we want to see and people we want to meet during our lifetime. 

     One of the items I had on my bucket list for a long time was to visit Ireland.  I always imagined it would be beautiful and interesting to learn of the history, especially since I have some Irish blood in me.  My travels took me there last year and I still think of it often as one of my treasured memories.  The people and the country were even more breathtaking and memorable than I ever pictured.  I can’t wait to return again and enjoy the laid-back energy of the people there, and the clean and picturesque scenery of the country.

     So, where do you want your travels to take you?  Iceland has become one of the more popular destinations lately.  It is somewhere I never really thought I would want to visit, but with so many of my friends and clients planning vacations there, it has really begun to intrigue me.  Here are a few of the highlights and reasons to visit Iceland:

  • ·         Everywhere you turn, there is beauty:  Glaciers, waterfalls, lava fields, rainbows.  The scenery is beyond imagination and as one person put it, straight out of the movie Narnia.
  •       You can see the Northern Lights:  Those of us in the southern part of the United States don’t really ever get to see this phenomena, but in Iceland, you feel you are almost close enough to touch them.
  •       Geothermal Spas:  The Blue Lagoon is probably the most well-known and popular.  Only 30 minutes from Reykjavik, you can enjoy the powder-blue heated waters and experience the soothing, warm, mineral-rich lagoon.

  •      The culture and history of this region is so interesting.  Learn about the early Vikings, their voyages, their traditional way of living, and even some of their superstitions.

Whether it’s Ireland or Iceland or somewhere else, let me help you cross something off of your bucket list.
