Travel Bucket List // On My Mind Monday


Happy Monday!!!
I am so excited because in just a few short days we are going to be getting picked up and taken to Chicago, enjoying a glass of wine in the terminal and perhaps a soft-pretzel, and then boarding our plane to Reykjavik! We have an hour layover before out next flight to Glasgow where we will be wandering, hiking, and documenting everything in Scotland. After a few days of that prettiness, we will fly back to Reykjavik where we have a Jeep rental set up and we plan to drive the entire Northern coast.
I love to travel. I love traveling without a real plan. I love renting a car, driving aimlessly, and having the freedom to pull over, get out and wander.
