A Travel Bucket List has been on my list of posts to write for quite awhile now. Except today when I finally sat down to write it, I thought it might be better to do a post of the amazing places I have gone before writing the one of places I want to go. I’ve been blessed enough to have the opportunity to go to some extremely cool places in the world (with more to come soon!), and I’m so excited to have the opportunity to share them with you! Especially since all of these took place long before the existence of Very Erin. So today I’m sharing my reverse travel bucket list.

These are the international trips I have been on. Most of the countries I’ve visited actually took place on the same trip, a trip through Europe with my older brother that was a high school graduation present. These trips are some of the most amazing experiences I’ve had in my life. Excuse the picture quality, most of these are 8 years old!
Brussels was the first place I landed on my Europe trip. I had never been out of the country, and I was flying alone since I was meeting my brother there. I was so nervous!
The first day we spent in Brussels, we did as much walking as we could. We wanted to see as much of the city as possible!
Germany was the one country we visited on whim. Because of the amazing energy in Berlin, it was my favorite of all the cities we visited! We had the chance to tour most of the major sites, seeing the Holocaust Memorial and remnants of the Berlin Wall.
We were also able to visit London! It’s one of the cities I’ve always wanted to see and was such a fun day! We only had one day in the city, so we walked as much as we could and saw everything we were able.
Scotland was the most purposeful part of our trip to Europe. Part of my family came to the United States from Scotland, and many very distant relatives still live there. One of the distant relatives was a commander in WWI, and the family is well-known in the area. We were able to visit the family home and explore the small nearby town of Melrose, as well as visit Edinburgh. The landscape on the walk to the home is the most beautiful I’ve ever seen.
This was my most recent international trip, about 4.5 years ago. My brother and his wife were getting married and had chosen a gorgeous beach on the east coast of Brazil. I can’t even tell you how beautiful and peaceful it was there. It was my first time seeing the ocean and it was stunningly beautiful. The water was surprisingly warm, the food and drinks were delicious, and the atmosphere was amazing. I could have stayed for so much longer.
This first picture is the beach where we spent much of our time.
