2015 Travel Diary

2015 was an amazing year of travel for us. We took a lot of great trips and checked a few things off our bucket lists! I thought I’d share some photos and memories from all the places we visited. I feel so fortunate that I get to travel as much as I do, as it is one of my biggest passions in life. If you have any questions on any of these places, feel free to email me or leave a comment! I hope you enjoy these photos!

WEST PALM BEACH, FL – Every year in February my company has a week long conference and this year it was in Palm Beach, FL! I fell totally in love with the resort we stayed at.

INDIA – In February, Mike and I went on the trip of a lifetime to India and visited Mumbai, Jaipur, Delhi, Agra, and Pune. There’s too many photos to share here, but see all the posts hereherehereherehere, and here!
MEXICO – In March, I went to Riviera Maya to see two of our closest friends get married! It was a stunning location and an amazing weekend! See the posts herehere, and here.
CHICAGO, IL x 4 – I made a few trips back home this year, but probably the most memorable were for my 10 year High School reunion and then when I surprised my girlfriends at their holiday party! I’m really lucky to still be close with all my friends from grade school, and we had a blast together this year.

PORTLAND, OR x 3 – I travel to Portland a lot for work and I always have an amazing time there. I absolutely love the city and everything it has to offer. Check out this post for more details on my trips.
AUSTIN, TX – Austin is arguably my favorite city in the US. My sister and her family live there so we go often to visit. This year’s visit was full of amazing food and fun. See the posts hereherehere, and here.
COLUMBUS, OH x 2 – I have family in Columbus and this year the Chaulk family reunion was actually held there so we made the trip twice to see our families!

MINNEAPOLIS, MN – I went back to my old stomping grounds (I lived in MN for 1.5 years) for one of my good friends’ weddings. It was a beautiful weekend and nice to see old friends. See the post here.
BALTIMORE, MD – Mike’s mom and stepdad live an hour in between Philly and Baltimore so when we go visit them, we usually spend some time in either city. This trip, we spent a day in Baltimore exploring the harbor and eating amazing food. We also spent some time in both Pennsylvania and Delaware that weekend so check out all the posts herehere, and here.
GATLINBURG, TN – Mike and I took a weekend getaway to Gatlinburg and had the best time. We went in the heart of fall and the colors were beyond gorgeous. It’s less than a 4 hour drive and I had never been so we took advantage of a free weekend to go explore and I definitely want to go back! See more of our trip here.

Cheers to more travel and adventures in 2016!

    I'm a little envious right now! I don't get to travel much. The last place I went out of state was to AN NFL game and the Precious Moments chapel. That was several years ago. At least I can daydream through you travels, right?!?
