Adventure Planning: 2018

Thinking about how much fun we had on our first trip of the year last weekend (here's the link to the blog post recap, if you missed it!), I thought it was time to start planning the rest of our year!  We love traveling and have some ideas for the rest of 2018:

In terms of our baseball bucket list, we are one-third of the way there!  Our remaining MLB cities (East to West) are: Boston (we've been separately to Fenway but have to check it off together!), NYC (Mets), Philadelphia, Baltimore, Miami, Tampa, Pittsburgh, Toronto, Detroit, Cincinnati, St. Louis, Kansas City, Minneapolis, Houston, Phoenix, San Diego, Los Angeles, Oakland, and Seattle.  Yeah, that's a lot, but we will make it happen...eventually!  Any suggestions where we should hit first?
Our friends are all getting married this year (and Mike will be the Best Man twice!) - April, June, and October in Boston and August in New York City.  Would you believe that none are when the Red Sox or Mets are home?!  Seriously, friends, plan better - haha!
It didn't take much convincing to get Mike to agree to go to London this fall - the Eagles are playing the Jags!  We don't know exactly when yet, but we will be there in October for it.  I need all of your recommendations for the cutest spots for afternoon tea, the best views of the city, the most colorful Notting Hill homes (#doitfortheinsta), and the most delicious food!
Emily gave me a link to an awesome cruise from Tampa to Key West to Cuba.  I'm not sure if it'll happen this year, but if there's any place I want to visit more than anything, it's Havana!
And, of course, we will be making our annual pilgrimage to Cooperstown, New York this summer for the National Baseball Hall of Fame Induction.  This will be #30 for me!

I'm not a sports person, but love your baseball city list---so fun. And I've been to most of those cities and they are all worth a visit. Even though the Red Sox won't be playing, you could still do a stadium tour there since it's such a historic stadium. Havanna is on the top of my list too, trying to make it happen this Fall

When you come to Baltimore please let Macy and I know! Would love to meet you IRL!

You had me at "Adventure"! ;) I'm so excited for you with your upcoming plans! Can't wait to see all the fun unfold for you!

Boston should be a really easy one to knock off the list!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

I think that you should make a trip to Houston to see the World Series champs in action, play we have great good too! I’m just a little biased though. And hooray for a rope to London! We had so much fun and loved our tea at The Horse Guards. It was beautiful!

I need to go on that cruise, I am dying to go to Cuba! Checking out all the MLB stadiums together is so cute. Ah London sounds wonderful, I cannot believe I did not visit there when I was in Europe for school, one day! Have a great weekend!

Lauren @ The Pizza Monster Mama said...

I agree with Megan--come to Baltimore PLEASE!!!

Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis said...

So many fun trips planned! Our cruise to Cuba is just about a month away so I'll definitely let you know how it was! Hope you make it to Havana sooner than later! Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis

Fortnum and Mason is a really good place for afternoon tea in London - very posh!

I suggest if you do KC or STL, you do them both in the trip as you can easily fly into one or the other and drive to the other as they are only 4 hours away. Then, of course, let me know and maybe we can meet up in the 'lou!

Jen said...

You guys have so many fun things planned! I can't wait to see it all unfold.

YAY for Baltimore!! St. Louis will be a great trip- we had so much fun when we were there and the brewery tour is free and awesome. While Pittsburgh is never at the top of my list for anything, I have heard great things about their baseball stadium!

Definitely have a meal or afternoon tea at Sketch in London!

I'm so jealous you're going to Cooperstown this year. Chipper is being inducted, and I had to miss Glavine, Maddux, and Bobby Cox's induction because my sister had the nerve to get married that weekend (I'm still kind of bitter, lol).
