Today’s post was graciously provided by Paloma of La Dolce Vita. If you come around here you probably already know of her and her lovely blog, if not, go check it out!
Thanks so much for sharing, Paloma!
If nothing else, marriage is an adventure, and if you’re very lucky, it’s one that you embark on with your best friend by your side. As much as I love it when Fabian and I can just hang out at home, my favorite memory from our five year marriage has been seeing the world together. I’ve always had a major case of wanderlust and it’s been really nice to impart my love of travel on him. Discovering new places, sights, and cultures together is such an amazing experience. I feel like you take away so much more from a beautiful place when you’ve visited it with the person you love.
I guess you could say our travel adventures began with our wedding. Fabian and I were married in a 300 year old cathedral in Monterrey, Mexico, where my family is from on July 1, 2005. Since then, we’ve done a fair share of traveling together: New York, San Francisco, Napa and Sonoma, San Miguel de Allende, Paris, Rome, Florence, and London. This past July marked our fifth anniversary and naturally, we decided to celebrate with a big trip! I traveled to Spain with one of my close friends a couple of years ago and the entire time, I wished Fabian had been there to see everything with me, so for our anniversary, we decided to explore Barcelona together. Fabian and I both fell in love with the beautiful city and are planning to go back sooner rather than later. As much as we loved seeing Gaudí’s architectural masterpieces, wandering through the Gothic Quarter, and eating tapas and drinking wine until we nearly burst, the best thing about it was experiencing it all for the first time together.
Bailey and Pete, I wish you all of the happiness in the world and hope that you will embark on countless adventures together. Savor every moment!
