every year around this time, i start to get a bit of cabin fever. it’s officially “busy season” for me at work, and i leave civilization for awhile and hibernate in conference rooms around the dallas metroplex. inevitably, the travel itch comes along as i dream of warmer weather, exotic locations, and – due to lack of windows in the aforementioned conference rooms – a better view.
there’s no sense in fighting it, so i’ve compiled a few of my favorite views from my travels. seeing these sights in person have produced gasps, “ah ha!” moments, a bewilderment at this crazy amazing place we call earth, and a larger-than-i’d-like-to-admit terrifying fear of heights. enjoy the views, and please let me know some of your favorites that i’ve missed!
my husband and i traveled to south africa this past summer, and absolutely fell in love with the country. read more about my trip to cape town (and table mountain!) here.

ok, so santorini seems fake. the photos that look fake? they’re not. the entire island looks exactly this perfect (at least, when it’s not erupting). read more about santorini here. spoiler alert: it will steal your heart.
barcelona is a city of color and life and art. my best friend and i visited two years ago and it has stayed with me since. if you only have a limited amount of time in europe, this is a must-see city. you can read more about my favorites in barcelona here and here.
