If you’ve been following our blog for any time at all, you’ve probably seen that our favorite place to be on the planet is our home here in the Appalachian foothills. But, one thing we love to do is travel. I guess you can say we are wanderlusts at heart! But it hasn’t always been that way…
When Butch and I married, I had only been to three states, and he had been to maybe six or seven. The opportunity to see the world was only a dream. In those days, the possibility of traveling beyond the borders of a few southeastern states was believed to only be attainable by the wealthy. This world is a big place, and I am so grateful for the privilege of placing our feet on five continents and forty one countries. Travel has expanded our horizons, helped us understand different cultures, and enabled us to get a glimpse of what others may face in their everyday living.

2. Vienna, Austria
Butch and I love music – so of course Vienna, the City of Music, is on our list! With its imperial palaces, numerous museums, variety of architectural styles, and storied Viennese cafes, we hope to experience all of its old world charm!
3. New England in Autumn
4. Normandy, France
We have been wanting to travel, for quite some time, to the region of Normandy for its historical importance (WWII beachheads), rolling countryside, bustling market towns, and of course, its fine cheeses, butter, brioches, and pastries!
Cited as one of the most beautiful cities in Europe, Budapest, Hungary rounds out our list. Seven bridges cross the Danube River in Budapest…meaning a river cruise on the Danube might be in our future plans! We have never taken a river cruise, so we would love to hear about your experiences!
