We talk a lot about luxury travel; but travel is, by default, a luxury. It is a privilege provided by the country of our birth, a privilege that many are not as fortunate to enjoy. Sometimes, we have to pinch ourselves at just how ridiculous our lives have become travelling the world and enjoying all it has to offer. In my mind, the greatest reward and luxury of travel is to be able to experience everyday things as if for the first time, to be in a position in which almost nothing is so familiar it is taken for granted.
We've traveled the world and have had the pleasure of visiting 4 continents, 25+ countries, and 39 of the United States. We are please to share our fondest memories.Our original Bucket List had 70 places/event we wanted to see or do. We have 24 more destinatiions left. We are anxiously awaiting our 2025 trip to the Holy Land of Israel and the pyramids in Egypt.
Walking through small towns in Germany is a bit like flipping through the pages of a storybook—think perfectly preserved half-timbered homes, painted churches, and cobblestone streets lined with wrought-iron signs and potted plants. But these places are very much real, and very much worth renting a car (or rail pass) for. Who needs those big cities anyway?
