I will be the first person to admit I'm an introvert and I enjoy staying home. But every now and again I get the desire to step out of my usual boundaries and a trip out into the unknown to see what the world has to offer. I've often pondered if I had unlimited funds and ample time off of work, where would I go?! Well, I've thought it through and here are 5 places I'm dying to visit rated by distance from me.
5. Washington, DC
As the nation’s capital, it’s hard for this not to make the list. At a whopping 110 miles away, this is easily a day trip by car or train. The last time I’ve been was over decade ago and my interests weren’t quite what they are today. This is a trip that will surely be full of historic information, rich masonry and unique photography!
4. Savannah, Georgia
Known for its Southern antebellum charm, there’s no way this wouldn’t be on my list! Plus, it’s home to Paula Dean’s restaurant. I’m booking my vacation there around when I can get reservations into her restaurant for sure! This comes in at my second closest must travel place at only 468 miles from Richmond.
3. New Orleans, Louisiana
Nightlife and the bayou aren’t all this city has to offer. I can’t wait to sink my teeth into the rich culture and odd dialects of this French-persuaded city. This trip has to be little more planned as it is 1000 miles away from home!
2. Arlington, Texas
Everything’s better in Texas, right?! This might seem a little odd on my list as most of the places have historical value or Southern charm. Well this historical value is more personal as it holds the history of NPG. Born and raised a Texan, I would love to see where his roots originally formed. We are out of driving distance at a long 1300 miles from our current home!
1. Dublin, Ireland
Only a small leap across the pond, this is my ultimate place to visit before I die! Being half Irish, I would love to visit where my ancestors came from and learn more about my heritage firsthand. One day I will be on a plane to visit my roots only 3500 miles from home.
