Going Continental…

The world is full of amazing places. And while we can hope to reach every last inch of it, we decided to form our backup Wanderlist based on each continent, so we don’t miss what we really MUST see before we die.

Disclaimer: Don’t hold us to these, because as we learn more about the world, we add more to the list! Isn’t life funny like that?

 

North America:

Half Dome – because, have you seen it?

Since there’s not too much to do there, we’re just going to say…GO! Because all we really want to do is be there at some point in our lifetime…

As we said, don’t hold us to keeping these forever. We’re adding and subtracting as we experience more that the world has to offer. But the big question is, what’s on your continental Wanderlists?

 

Much love and wandering…
