I hope to add to this list as quickly as I cross things off — we’ll never be done!
Since I live in the USA, I want to see our beautiful nation. There’s also a heavy focus on trips that are in California. This is mostly because I hear more about these places than other amazing spots throughout the US – feel free to share some local gems of your own!

I don’t really do cost estimates until the trip is in the foreseeable future, and most of my past travels were before I kept much for financial records. And I’m kind of glad. I don’t want to know how much some of that fun cost!
Do you keep a WanderList? Or do you have a more detailed plan?
