My love of travel started very young and I have been so lucky to visit many places in my life. From exploring the all over the great United States, to island hopping in the Caribbean, to exploring the romanticism and culture all across Europe, I could never been more grateful for the experiences I’ve had in my short twenty-five years. I have to give credit to dance because if it weren’t for that I never would’ve gone to so many places so young. I Irish danced for almost ten years, going to competitions all over and I loved visiting new places. If it weren’t for my dance years, I may never have developed a love for the whole process of traveling. From the actual trip, whether it be planes, trains or automobiles, to getting there and discovering something new and exciting, every trip was an amazing one. Sure, I miss home sometimes, there’s no place like it. The familiarity, the feeling of safety, it’s comforting and sometimes we all need it. I’m a homebody in the sense that I miss my friends and family when I’m gone, but ask anyone that knows me and they’ll tell you my imagination and search for adventure is endless. It’s actually gotten to the point where my friends just laugh at me when I ask them if they want to go on a trip because I do it so often. Here are some of the amazing things I’ve had the chance to do: -Visit… View Post

As much as we are all filled with wanderlust and don’t want to be held back by anything, in this day and age, you still have to be prepared when going on any vacation. I would love to just leave whatever I’m doing and rush out on an adventure, without a care in the world. Depending on the adventure, sometimes this is okay, but if you’re planning something bigger, more epic, you need to make sure you have the essentials. You don’t need much, but there are several staples that you just can’t go without and we’ve got them for you. Identification ID’s are super important, especially if you’re going out of the country. Sure, if someone hitting on you at the bar asks for your name, feel free to have fun with it, but for the love of God do not leave to go on vacation without some form of ID-most likely a passport. Before you go, make copies and place them in a different part of your suitcase. This is in case for some horrible reason you lose it or worse, it gets stolen. In some countries, gypsies are a little handsy and like to take advantage of tourists…but we’ll get more into that later. Suitcase I definitely recommend packing light, no matter how long the trip you’re going on will be. Whether you’re going for 7 days or 7 weeks, the packing amount can still be the same. I went on a study abroad trip to Italy, in… View Post

We are so excited to begin this journey with you. Now that you know a little bit more about us, we cannot wait to dive right into everything the world has to offer. We are travel fanatics, adventure junkies, and lovers of life! The only problem is…our 25-year-old bank accounts. Woody Allen said it best when he said we should’ve aged backwards so we could’ve worked first when we were old and had money to frolic about the world when we’re young. Unfortunately, that’s not reality we live in, so with this site, we are going to create the ultimate global bucket list and wait for the funds to follow. We are both D.C. natives, as you know, and now Colleen is living in Manhattan, with Natalie making plans to head out west to California. Our goal is to not only share all the places in the world we plan on going, but exciting happenings in our respective cities, all kinds of travel tips, myths and everything in between. Expect seriousness (i.e. protect that passport people…no joke), fun (i.e. top adventure activities to do in certain places), excitement (i.e. daredevil fun and stepping outside your comfort zone) and most importantly, comedy (i.e. lots of “Would You Rather [not the sexual kind, get your mind out of the gutter!] and Weirdest Foods You Have to Try). We know how boring it can be just reading facts after facts of travel information. And while we want to help you plan your next… View Post

We met the first day of Kindergarten and the rest is history. Been best friends now, going on twenty years, and we decided we wanted to share our adventures with the world. We both grew up in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan area, northern Virginia to be exact, but are travelers to our core. I’ve been lucky enough to have to been to Europe several times, and Nat has been all across the US and more. We decided to map out an epic itinerary in the inevitable event that we can go on our global trip. We’ll take you on the journey with us, all the while keeping you updated about our smaller, yet still relevant, adventures on the home front. I mean, after all, DC and NYC aren’t necessarily the boonies. Our goal is to live the life we want but for now, being poor 25-year-olds, we just have to start planning. The Wanderlist is the plan, the adventure comes next. Stay tuned… “I haven’t been everywhere, but it’s on my list.” -Susan Sontag Much love and wandering…
