2013 will mark 5 years of marriage, which is quite entertaining since that is how this whole blog thing got started, in a big ball of wedding planning and life. And here I am 5 years later with 2 kids an average of 2.7 blog posts per year, and the ambition of a 3-toed sloth. To revitalize our life and jump start my once monthly tradition, I’ve decided the husband and I need a trip. A vacation of sorts where we can do things that we really want to do. I’m calling it our bucket list trip / 5 year honeymoon. Now before you get all hyped up and thinking we are so romantic, let me warn you Bora-Bora and Europe will need to wait for a raise. Instead we’re hitting up Montana in winter. Given my husbands lack of travel experience and my moderate travel experience, we decided this needed to be a trip where we could experience all kinds of new stuff together!
So what does a 5 year bucket list honeymoon include? No kids, a amtrack excursion (first for both of us), a dinner in a yurt (first for both), skiing in the mountains of Montana (I’ve skiid in the Mountains, but not in Montana), and a dog sled ride (first for both). And just to add something romantic to the mix, we are trying to find a place to stay with an outdoor hot tub and hope for snow while we are there!
We are headed to Whitefish, MT. Any other ideas to add to the pre-existing mix? Any suggestions on where to stay? Where should we eat? Where’s the best place for a sunrise? Best brew or local establishment to explore? We’re game for anything.
