  1. You've ticked so many off your list already… you're off to a good start! 🙂 The top of my list at the moment is the gorillas in Rwanda/Uganda and trekking through Nepal. As for your list, Vegas, Disneyland California, and the Grand Canyon are all amazing! Even after Victoria Falls, the Pyramids, the Great Wall of China, and the Taj Mahal – the Grand Canyon remains the most spectacular view I've ever laid eyes on… and it's something that the littles would enjoy as well!

  2. This is an awesome list!! I might have to steal some of these for my own list! I adore traveling too!

    PS – I love your blog header!

  3. WOW! What an incredible list. but even more amazing is how much you have been able to do. Well done. so many amazing memories I am sure.

    Hope you don't mind but I'm also going to do a list

  4. Wait…I don't see TEXAS anywhere on that list?! Or that a certain Texas Ashley comes to visit you. I am utterly jealous (in the best way) with all of your amazing travels you have checked off friend.
