What’s on your Travel Wishlist?

I read this post from Cup of Jo on my first day back to work after a week of vacation followed by a long birthday weekend – exactly the wrong time to fan the flames of wanderlust.

I have a love/hate relationship with travel. I love seeing new places. I hate flying and get terribly motion sick. I love exploring new cuisines (and grocery stores). I hate feeling overwhelmed. I love the feeling of every day bringing something new. I hate being out of my comfort zone. Now take all of those feelings and multiply them by 100, and you have travel with a toddler (particularly the hassle-y, stress-y parts).

Maybe this is a sign of time passing and priorities shifting, but when I tried to daydream a list of destinations, the places I kept coming back to were places I’ve already been that I want to know better, places I want to make my own.

Though I suppose there are a few dream spots (for various reasons):

Camino de Santiago: Etapa de Sarria a Portomarín
