Life does not always go according to plan, and when I first came to the realization that our Australia trip for our 5 year anniversary needed to be cancelled, I was beyond bummed. I instantly went into my little pit of despair of: Andrew and I never even had a honeymoon, I really want to see other countries, when is my hard work actually going to pay off, and worst of all the question of am I running a rat race that is killing my dreams? I know that seems silly, but I’ve always had an intense desire to travel, not to just work and pay bills, and I feel like that portion of my life has been unfulfilled. So after about a week of sulking, I did what I do best and began planning. With what we have, what’s the best we can make of this situation? Where can we still travel for our 5 year anniversary? So I found a Scandinavian cruise, where we won’t just see 1 country but 7 (Norway, Denmark, Germany, Sweden, Russia, Estonia, and Finland). Then once I booked the flights, the cheapest flight had long enough layovers to go exploring in Dublin and London. So ultimately, Andrew and I will be seeing 9 different countries for our 5 year anniversary. I’m literally bouncing around the house like we are leaving tomorrow Lord knows, I’ve already started the countdown. I’m so excited for this special trip for Andrew and I and I can’t wait for all the adventuring with my best friend.
