The Year of Travel: 2017 Travel Plans

Even though the year is in full swing, I wanted to post about our upcoming travel to get some tips and places to visit while on these trips! We completed our first trip of the year to Chicago back in January, This year we have a lot on our travel agenda, but I couldn't be happier to be able to finally travel and see some of the places I've been wanting to see for years!! So here are all the destinations on the travel plan for the year!!

Las Vegas: March 2017

Although A and I have both been to Vegas many times, we've never been together. I've been dreaming of this trip for so long and can't wait to finally go again! A always goes around this time of year for March Madness, but I've only ever gone in the summertime and once in early May. I'm excited to see all the excitement for March Madness and we'll be there during Spring Break time too so it should be fun. We are staying at hubby's favorite Aria and I'm excited since I've never been to that hotel. Even though we are both semi-pro's on Vegas, any food recommendations or things to do/see will be appreciated!

Western Caribbean Cruise: April 2017

This is most definitely one of my favorite trips of the year. Not only do I get to spend a week in paradise, but I get to do it with my mom and sissy and celebrate my mom's 60th birthday!! We are cruising for the first time ever and I absolutely cannot wait. I've been reading so many blogs about what to expect when cruising and my absolute favorite carry on packer Kristen on what to pack and how to pack efficiently! We are cruising out of Galveston and going to Montego Bay, Jamaica; Grand Cayman, Cayman Islands; & Cozumel, Mexico. I know for a fact I want us to do zip-lining in one of the ports and I've been told to go to the turtle farm in the Cayman Islands so that's on the itinerary. Any and all tips on cruising are more than welcome!

London, U.K. : August 2017

I cannot wait for this trip either...can I say that for all of them really?! I've been dreaming of going to London for a long long time and since my husband is originally from there I knew the chances were now higher. Luckily one of his family friends is getting married in August so it was the perfect excuse for us to go. We are going for the wedding near Birmingham and then heading to the city for a few days to do all the touristy things. One of my patients is also from London and has been super helpful giving me tips and places to check out, but any more suggestions are more than welcome!


Tampa/Orlando: December 2017

This will cap off the year and I'm excited for it. Not only will I be getting to see my family again at my cousins wedding in Tampa, but my sister, cousin and I planned to stay a few extra days and drive up to Orlando and hit up a few Disney Parks. It's been almost a year since my sister and I took a spontaneous trip to Disney and we didn't get to go to all the parks that time either. I know we for sure want to do Epcot, Animal Kingdom and Universal again because Harry Potter, duh! A even said he will think about joining us which would be so much fun since it's been many many years since he's experienced Disney!


So that's really it as far as planned trips. We do have some plans of weekend trips to places in Texas or maybe even New Orleans for our 1 year anniversary trip. We want to keep that trip small since we have some other big trips in the works for this year! Let me know if you've been to any of the places we're going to and anything we should know about it.

  5. You have so many great travel plans on tap for this year, and I can't wait to see what all you end up doing! We're headed to Vegas in March as well, and right now we have reservations at Giada for dinner one night, and I think that we're planning on doing Bacchanal as well.
    The cruise that you're going on sounds like the one that we did a few years ago with my in laws, and it was such a blast! In Grand Cayman there's actually an excursion where you go to the turtle farms and out to the sand bar to see the sting rays. It was hands down the best excursion we did! We did the ziplining in Jamaica and loved it so much! But let's face it, you're going to have a blast no matter what you do!

  6. What a fantastic year! I've always wanted to go to London, and your cruise sounds so wonderful and relaxing :)
