Vacation Fantasy…

Travis and I are planning to take a big trip at the end of the summer to celebrate our 1 year wedding anniversary/5 year dating anniversary.  Most recently, we’ve  been leaning toward Italy, which has so much to offer and is a new destination for both of us.

But these photos of Ireland from National Geographic have me second-guessing myself…

Maybe it’s because St. Patrick’s day is right around the corner, or maybe it’s my Irish heritage, but a trip to Ireland doesn’t sound half bad…

If you could take a vacation anywhere in the world, what would you choose?  Have you ever been to Italy?  Ireland?  Got any other good suggestions?  Share your thoughts in the comments!

P.S. The easiest recipe EVER for St. Patty’s Day corned beef & cabbage.

    Sara and I are planning to go to Ireland next year with our Dad. It’s always been on our list because of our heritage… not to mention the beautiful landscape and history.

    We celebrated our 1 year anniversary in Tuscany-you can’t go wrong with Italy. Ireland is on our short list as well, but Italy is just so darn romantic and I thought Ireland could wait until we had kids. Italy is one spot we wanted to go while we were still DINKs

    I studied abroad in Italy for 6 months. There are so many places to go. Especially if you go while its still summer/hot out. Go to the Amalfi Coast, climb to the top of Capri and swim in the Blue Grotto. Rent a scooter, go wine tasting. Go to the cities, they all have their own personalities and differences. The art, history and architecture is stunning. And the FOOD…omg. Italy is very diverse and you’ll come back feeling like you did a ton of different things.
    I went to Ireland, I loved it, I went to the Guiness factory, saw some castles…
    If you go to Italy I would be happy to give you a bunch of ideas.

    Well, I’ve never been to Italy, but I can tell you that our trip to Ireland is where Ryan and I decided we wanted to spend our lives together. The nickname “Land of 1,000 Welcomes” holds true – I have never seen friendlier people in my life (especially toward American tourists!). And of course, the grass is a green that doesn’t exist anywhere else.
