We just checked the South of France from our list, but I would go back in a heartbeat, rent a car and take a roadtrip through Provence. At the same time though, there are so many countries that I’ve been dying to visit. In fact, when people ask us when we think we’ll settle down and have kids, I tell them I have a bucket list of places I want to travel before we start a family. In order: Portugal, Spain, the English countryside, Croatia, Thailand, Australia, Peru, Colombia, Cuba ― just to name a few. It’s ambitious, I know, but working in the airline industry has its perks ― and traveling is encouraged! So consider the challenge accepted.
But let’s talk about my new bags for a second, because great adventures can’t happen without great luggage. I’ve always wanted to upgrade to hardshell suitcases, but could never find any that really striked my fancy. James actually has a Raden suitcase, but the battery for the built-in charger takes up a lot of packing space. I’d much rather pack an extra pair of shoes or two over being able to juice up my phone (that’s what my portable charger is for). So when I laid my eyes on the Ocean Drive collection from Ricardo, it was love at first sight. The suitcase come in silver or gold and have a really cool texture to the outer shell that make it extra durable. Space wise, I’m spending the week on the west coast right now and was able to fit a week’s worth of clothes into just the carry-on. James used the rolling duffel bag for his stuff. Think about how much we’ll be able to pack on an adventure in one of my bucket list countries!
