Wanderlust Wednesday: Bonnie Scotland


What, did you think I would post on a Wednesday and forget about my wanderlusting? Not today, my friend!

I may or may not have mentioned this, but I’m a bit of a lover of The Amazing Race . Just a bit. Like I may or may not be counting down the days until my children are old enough to abandon for a month so Mr.LessPinningMoreDoing and I can start applying for the show.

Anywho, the most recent episode of the Race has renewed my long held desire to visit the realm of Bonnie Scotland. I thought I might have pinned a picture or two of the lovely country on my travel board, so I went scrolling through it. Yeah. I had pinned a picture or two. Enjoy!    {Clicking on a picture should take you to the pin.}

She’s a beautiful country, ain’t she?


Wanderlust Wednesday: The Northern Lights


What do you do when you live your life with a bad case of wanderlust on a school teacher’s budget with a husband who thinks that walking to the mailbox is satisfying enough? Besides become addicted to The Amazing Race, that is? (Side note: I’m totally going to be on that show some day. As soon as I feel like my kids are old enough to abandon for a month, I’m there. You just wait.)

What was I talking about? Oh yeah.

Create a Pinterest board of places you’ll never get to see, of course! There’s a little song that goes with my board:

I could wear out all my vocals
conferring with the locals,
in Africa or Maine.
And my itch I’d be scratchin’
While my travel plans were hatchin’
If I only had a plane.

Oh we could go and see
The ocean near the shore.
We could eat some things we never ate before.
And then we’d sit
And eat some more.

I could go by bus or bike,
Which ever way I’d like.
I’d even take a train.
And my passport I’d be fillin’
While the sights I saw were thrillin’
If I only had a plane.

Okay, enough of that. The point being, I think I have a nomad’s heart. With many kids and few dollars, I know my wanderlust will never be satisfied. And that’s okay. It’s worth the tradeoff. BUT (if you buy 3 completos), I’m starting a new thing here called “Wanderlust Wednesday” in which I will be posting things from my travel board. Or not. Might depend on the week. As you might have noticed already, I’m not exactly Mrs. Consistent. I’ll post a picture or something from the board and if I have something to say about it, I’ll do that too. But sometimes it will just be a picture.

For today, I’d like to share with you one of the things I’ve wanted to see for as long as I can remember…like since the day I found out it existed: The Northern Lights.


Stunning, right? Someday…someday.

Have you ever seen the Northern Lights? What is something in the world you’ve always wanted to see? Share in the comments!
