  1. This is a great list and we share a few. As for #20, there is nothing irrational about cockroaches, they are horrid. We lived in Hawaii for 1 year and I was terrified of them.

    Congratulations on your marriage, I wish you a lifetime of happiness. Thanks so much for stopping by our blog, One Road at a Time. I hope you do make it to Iran one day and once we return to the USA (after we finishing walking the Camino) I’ll be writing much more about our 3 weeks in Iran.

    Safe travels!l

    1. Thanks so much Patti! Married life is great 🙂 I look forward to reading more about Iran, it’s a place you don’t usually read about!

  2. I love these! Cute idea – especially love #22 … I can’t be with someone unless they love travel as much as me – luckily I found that. I also heard so many bad things about Paris that I was hesitant to go but it was one of my favourite cities! That and Hong Kong – asian culture it’s really incredible. 🙂

    1. I can’t imagine being with someone who didn’t love to travel since it’s so important to me. My husband hadn’t really traveled before he met, but now he’s obsessed. We’re perfect together 🙂

      Hong Kong <3 I miss it so. I really want to go back. It's one of those places I could visit again and again and never get tired of it.
