What Kaci Wants: Travelllllllllll.

I want to go to Hawaii. I want to go to the Caribbean. I want to go to Boston and NYC and Chicago and San Francisco. Back to Vegas, San Diego. EUROPE. France. England.

Paris
Venice
Bora Bora
Rome
South of France
Ireland
NYC
Did I mention Paris?

Let’s pretend for a minute I have all the money to go all the places. I know that I know a lot of world travelers – how do you find places to stay when you’re traveling abroad? I know there are all kinds of hotel booking websites but I found Venere.com. So, you know, when I have all the money to go to Venice, maybe I’ll use that website.

Because Venice. I mean, how awesome does that city sound? Obviously I’ve never been there, and I’ve heard rumors of a certain, um, aroma, the city has. BUT STREETS OF WATER. Those little boats you travel on? I picture myself all classy a la Angelina Jolie in “The Tourist” …

Eh, Johnny Depp’s not bad either. πŸ˜‰

And those guys in the hats that push the canoes (are they canoes?) around? I die.

The architecture. The HISTORY. You just can’t find history quite like that in the good ol’ US of A. THE ITALIAN FOOD. Do I really need to say anything else?

All photos on my Pinterest board, “Places I WILL visit before I die.” So… the pictures are definitely not mine, and I’m definitely not trying to take credit for them!

    My husband and I recently did a self drive trip in Ireland in April for a late honeymoon. I used trip advisor frequently when looking for places to stay. We stayed at B&Bs pretty much the whole time except for the last night.

    A few years ago, I believe I used priceline to get a hotel in NYC for one night. It was around 70 bucks and right by broadway, so it was actually a good deal. The room was so tiny though!

    We use TripAdvisor, Airbnb, hostelworld, Agoda, and sometimes we even get lucky on Kayak. If the hotel or hostel offers the same price through their site or if you call/email and ask to match lower pricing we like to book directly with the place so our reservation doesn’t get “lost.” I hope you go to all of these places! F*Yea, Traveling!

      Great tips, Casi – thank you! I’ve used Airbnb before, and liked it! Good call on booking directly with the place when possible though πŸ™‚

    Travelling is the best! When I travelled through Greece I mostly used TripAdvisor, Hostel World.com for finding affordable places to stay. The Lonely Planet series of books are also AWESOME = best travel guides!

    I feel ya, Kaci. I haven’t traveled to another state or country since I moved back from Korea. It’s so much harder to travel once you’ve settled down and there’s another person to consider. πŸ˜›

      I was never really a big traveler to begin with – it’s a money thing, really. I’ve been on 6 trips that required travel by plane… two of those were for BiSC. πŸ™‚ But, a girl can dream!
