2014 Travel Bucket List

2014 Travel Bucket List | Alaina Ann Photography I must say, I had an amazing time exploring so many new places during 2013. Having an epic year of travel has motivated me to do the same in 2014 :)

I spent some time planning locations I would like to visit throughout the year and have them broken down into day trips, short trips and long trips. The majority of my travel will focus on day and short (weekend) trips. I have four long trips for the year, each ranging between 5 days and two weeks :)
