Summer Wanderlust


Summer Road Trip In Iceland, our first stage planning details.

Now that Summer is quickly approaching, we’ve been thinking about solidifying our travel plans, and have been weighing our options. I’ve been neck deep in Summer wanderlust photos and although it seems like a silly problem, we just haven’t been able to make our mind up about where to go and what to do. Here are a few trips we’re considering:

Iceland With Kids
This trip would be a fast-paced one for us, full of adventures. I don’t envision much lounging waterside in a swimsuit, but it’s been on our travel wishlist for quite some time and I’m hoping would be everything we’ve dreamed about. One drawback is that the northern lights aren’t really visible during the Summer.

Swedish Summer Cabin

Our other option is to spend part of our Summer in Sweden. The trip would likely be very relaxed, staying in a rental cabin in a small town on the water. I’ve found a few places to rent that I’ve fallen in love with, and a tranquil retreat might be just what we need right now.

Alberta, Canada
I’ve long wanted to visit this area due to beautiful photos of glacial lakes that I’ve seen around. I imagine this trip would be somewhere in between the two above, with some adventure and some time spent relaxing near a lake. I haven’t done much research for this one, so I’m not sure of an exact location. On the plus side, airfare might be cheaper (and duration shorter) than flying to Iceland or Sweden.

I’m so torn. I’d love to do all of these but that’s not in the cards for this Summer.

Which is your favorite? Do you have any travel plans this Summer?
