Top 5 Favorite Trips of 2017
There have been all sorts of Top 5 and Top 10 lists this week in honor of a new year. We thought we would add ours to the mix. Here are Jen and my Top 5 Trips of 2017… We wish all of our readers a happy and healthy 2018, full of lots of memorable travel experiences.
1. Rocky Point, Mexico (Jen & Lalani)
This came in number one because it was the first trip that Jen and I went on together after starting The Birds. We were able to meet influencers from all over Arizona, work with an awesome PR firm and see all the best that Rocky Point had to offer. It was a game changer for us and definitely our top choice for 2017.
2. Alaska; Jen
Going to Alaska was an important trip for Jen. It was somewhere that she had been needing to go for a long time. She was able to experience the awesome natural beauty that Alaska has to offer as well as make some important family connections. This is a trip that she will remember forever.
3. Portugal; Lalani
In October, I went to Portugal for the first time. My great grandparents are from Portugal and it is somewhere that I have been really wanting to go for a long time. The natural beauty, people and architecture were amazing, and I felt a deep connection to both the country and its people. If you ever have the chance to visit Portugal, definitely go.
4. Cambodia; Jen
Jen and her family had the most amazing time last fall in Cambodia. They toured Angor Wat, visited an orphanage and really just had the most amazing time.
5. Amsterdam; Lalani
Nate and I went to Amsterdam for two nights as part of our last minute trip to watch a Champion’s League game in Germany. Neither of us every had a really desire to go to Amsterdam and really only chose it based on its proximity to Dortmund where the soccer match was being held. We were SO pleasantly surprised. It has become one of our most favorite European cities and somewhere that we want to return to many times.
That’s it for 2017… we would love to hear about your favorite travel memories….
