Six Types of Trips on my Bucket List | The Graceful Wanderer

Wanderlust Wednesday: Six Types of Trips on My Bucket List

It’s super common to talk about your dream destinations and far off lands that you’d like to discover, but have you thought about the types of trips you want to go on?  The way you travel can be just as important (if not more) than where you travel.

Certain times you care most about the people you’re with, joining together to explore and make new memories, not caring where your head falls at night. Other times, you need a retreat, quietly wandering a new city, keeping your eyes and ears open to the scene around you.

There are many different trips that you can go on and today, I’m sharing with you my personal bucket list of six types of trips!Read More »

What I'm Loving: Pinterest via The Graceful Wanderer

6 Pinterest Finds I’m Currently Loving

Like many others, I often turn to Pinterest for inspiration and ideas. I tend to search for one topic, only to fall into the black hole and come out hours later having pinned several other links regarding something entirely different than my original interest. Oh, just me? Hm, moving on then. 😉

Today, I thought I’d let you have a peak at what I’ve been pinning these days!

Wanderlust Wednesday: First Trip Abroad, Lourdes France

Wanderlust Wednesday: My First Trip Abroad

I have been fascinated and intrigued by foreign places since before I can even remember. I’m sure that stems from my love of reading about faraway places and adventures abroad. Well, that led to a need to travel becoming one of my most common thoughts. So, when an opportunity to travel to France on a school trip came up, I worked my very hardest to make sure I got a spot.

I went to a Catholic, all-girls school for my high school years. As a thirteen-year-old girl, I thought it was the worst thing that could ever happen to me. But, of course, it was one of the best. That school offered numerous opportunities, one of them being an annual pilgrimage to Lourdes, France for rising seniors.

After working on my application diligently, I constantly checked my email for news. I was incredibly nervous and sure I wouldn’t get a spot. I was wrong, of course. I remember checking my email first thing one weekend morning and reading the acceptance email about twelve times before running downstairs to tell my family.

France. I was going to FRANCE. ME!Read More »
