  1. Wow, when you list it all out like this, you guys HAVE done a ton of traveling! I love all the pictures! Looking at the Cape ones makes me want to go there badly! It just looks so relaxing and peaceful and I could use that right about now...

  2. Eric and I are now 90% sure we are going to do an Ireland trip next year! Originally it was going to be Japan but that's still a bit out of our reach money wise right now. I will definitely have to email you Ireland questions!

    I think it's great how much traveling you guys do! We also love traveling but we don't do as much "local travel" as we could do. Hopefully that will increase this summer a bit!

  3. Love this!! How close are you to RI? I may there in September for my cousin's wedding =)

  6. That's so awesome that you guys have done so much traveling! My husband and I are doing a VERY belated honeymoon trip to Europe for three weeks in August. Hoping to see: Wales, London, Paris, Italy and Spain
