My Top 5 Unforgettable Destinations of 2015

First off, Happy New Year to you guys! I know I’ve neglected my blog for a few weeks now. I decided to step away from it for the holidays and spend some quality time with my family. But since it’s a new year, I think it’s time to get back to blogging. 2015 was quite memorable for me. My husband and I pretty much traveled all around the US, mostly going on road trips. This year, our goal is to travel more overseas with Iceland as our top priority to visit. But before I start making plans for this year, I want to share my top 5 unforgettable destinations of 2015.

5.) Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming (July, 2015)

  • This is my favorite national park in the US. Granted, I have yet to visit most of them but Yellowstone will always have a special place in my heart. We visited for the second time earlier this year and it was just as breathtaking as our first visit. One of the highlights of this trip was when we saw two grizzly bears (on separate occasions) about 30 feet away from where we’re standing. One of my favorite things about Yellowstone is being able to see wildlife at almost every corner of the park. Bison sightings are common as there are thousands of them but bear sightings-let alone, grizzly bears, don’t occur that often. So imagine my excitement when I spotted two of them in one day.

4.) New Orleans, Louisiana (March, 2015)

  • NOLA is one of the cities that I’ve been wanting to visit for the longest time. A few people hinted that I shouldn’t bother but I’m glad I didn’t listen to them. The energy and vibrancy of this city was so inspiring. Despite falling on hard times after Hurricane Katrina, everyone seems to be in good spirits. There’s so much to do that our stay was definitely not enough. We got to taste delicious Southern food-shrimp and grits at Lüke, beignets & cafe au lait at Cafe Du Monde, chargrilled oysters & fried soft shell crabs at ACME Oyster Company, we learned about the history of the city by visiting plantations and of course, enjoyed the nature when we went on a Swamp tour & explored the Barataria Preserve.

3.) Monument Valley, Utah (October, 2015)

  • I’ve been wanting to visit Monument Valley ever since I saw photos of it in Instagram. But it wasn’t till I saw it in person, I realized how stunning it really was. I fell in love with Utah long before I visited the Southeast part of it-taking a few road trips to Zion. What sealed the deal is my recent road trip to Moab including this beautiful landmark located in the border of Utah and Arizona. The highlight of it? Riding a horse on the edge of a cliff, overlooking the vast canyon below. It  reminded me of the Western movies my Grandpa used to watch when I was young. He was very fond of John Ford and his movies. I’m sure with this photo, my Grandpa is looking down on me, grinning from ear to ear. 🙂

2.) Universal Studios, Florida (March, 2015)

  • I’m sure you guys are wondering why this is way up here in the list. Well, let me tell you why. It’s no secret (despite being in my late twenties) that I’m still a big fan of Harry Potter. It reminds me of my childhood and makes me yearn for simpler times. When James told me that we were going on a road trip to Florida to see my mom and spend two days in Universal Studios Orlando, I was beyond ecstatic. You see, my love for Harry Potter is unparalleled. Twilight and Hunger Games got nothing on the real OG’s. I have read all 7 books-several times and also, I randomly do movie marathons a few times each month just cause I feel like it. I’m not even ashamed to say it (or should I be?).

1.) Kauai, Hawaii (June, 2015)

  • I love hiking and being surrounded by mountains but most days my heart calls for the ocean. Ever since I watched 50 First Dates twelve years ago, I’ve been dreaming of visiting Hawaii. So when my husband and I decided to go somewhere tropical for our 1 year wedding anniversary, we just had to go to Hawaii. Oahu was our destination at first but I’m glad we went to Kauai instead. What a dream! 2 weeks wasn’t nearly enough! The best part of it all was experiencing this paradise with my husband. I enjoyed it so much that I think I even shed a tear as we boarded our plane to Vegas. I love you Kauai, I really do!

    You visited some great places during 2015! My fave would have to be Anguilla. It’s so beautiful and quiet and the beaches . . . wish I was there now.

    I could so easily adapt all of yours from last year to my wish list for this year! I loved our NYC at Christmastime trip to close out 2015 – very cool and iconic things to see, and the people were so great.

    1. Janna C.

      Janna C.

      January 9, 2016 at 2:38 pm

      Yes definitely! This can be your 2016 travel inspiration! I wish I can spend the holidays in NYC as well.

    Those are some absolutely GORGEOUS spots! I think Nashville was gorgeous when I went down. I wish I had taken more pictures. Vegas was interesting too because of the lights and such! Culver City was a fantastic little place too. I’d never been hiking before and I hiked up a mountain. It was crazy!

    1. Janna C.

      Janna C.

      January 9, 2016 at 2:39 pm

      They really are! I havent been to Nashville but I heard great things. I’m glad you were able to make it out here in Vegas. Next time you go, try to visit Red Rock Canyon and Valley of Fire. 🙂

    What a great list! I have been to Yellowstone, and I agree it is just breathtaking. I always joke that I am terrible at taking photos but it didn’t even matter there! They turned out beautiful no matter what.

    Stunning photos and I’d love to visit Yellowstone myself. In fact, I’d love to visit all the national parks.

    1. Janna C.

      Janna C.

      January 9, 2016 at 2:41 pm

      Thanks Clara! Yes! That’s my goal as well, to visit all the national parks. 😀

    We loved Yellowstone as well, it was so much more than I ever imagined it could be! As well as Hawaii, we can hardly wait to return this year!

    1. Janna C.

      Janna C.

      January 9, 2016 at 2:42 pm

    What gorgeous pictures! I love your spirit of adventure. We’ve made a goal of exploring as much of our own country as well, and I have such great memories of all the places we’ve been!

    1. Janna C.

      Janna C.

      January 11, 2016 at 1:20 am

      Thank you Megan! I’m glad there are others who choose to explore our own country before traveling overseas. What are some of the places you liked? I would love to hear your stories! 🙂

  10. Terri

    January 8, 2016 at 12:13 pm

    Oh your pictures are absolutely beautiful! I have been to two of the places you have listed (New Orleans and Universal Studios). I would love to see the others! Harry Potter was amazing! My favorite vacation this year was to Texas…yeehaw!

    1. Janna C.

      Janna C.

      January 11, 2016 at 1:23 am

      Thanks so much Terri! You’re far too kind. 🙂 My suggestion would be Yellowstone! You will definitely love it whether you like the outdoors or not. There’s so much to do and see that a weekend is not enough! I would love to visit Texas again. We only went to Dallas to see the stadium.

    so many awesome places! I really want to plan a trip to New Orleans!

    Awesome post!! My husband and I went to Yellowstone in 2014 and fell in love! Then in August of 2015 we were in New Orleans and now that’s our new favourite spot!! Monument Valley is on my bucket list!! If you ever venture to Canada, I hike and camp in the Rocky’s all the time! I could share some sweet spots! 🙂

      Thank you Cassandrea! Lovely name btw!

      I’m glad you guys visited Yellowstone. Isn’t it beautiful out there? And Yes! NOLA is one of my favorites too! I’ll definitely take you up on that. I’m planning to visit Canada this year. 🙂

    I wanna go to universal one day… I almost got to go once, but I ended up breaking an appendage and we had to leave a day early. *shake fist* SOMEDAY!!

      Janna C.

      January 11, 2016 at 1:43 am

      Oh no! I’m sorry to hear that Jenny. I’m sure you will get to visit Universal in the future! 🙂

    Monument Value feels out of this world, which is unique and beautiful. Would also love to see Yellowstone and Kauai.

    1. Janna C.

      Janna C.

      January 11, 2016 at 1:44 am

      I really was Franc. A unique place, indeed. If you love the outdoors you will love both Yellowstone and Kauai!

    January 8, 2016 at 8:22 pm

    Kauai was amazing… we went for the first time this past November. I loved seeing all the states you traveled to and loved. We have been debating trying more US travel. The past few years we have traveled with our kids to Asia, Middle East, Africa and Europe but we really haven’t begun to explore our own country. This post excites me that there are possibilities out there.

    1. Janna C.

      Janna C.

      January 11, 2016 at 1:48 am

      It was amazing right? I would def visit it again! There’s more to see in the US so don’t hesitate! 🙂 I on the other hand will try to travel more overseas!

  16. mark

    January 8, 2016 at 8:24 pm

    Can’t say I have any great desire to travel to the USA. BUT if i did the national parks that you visited would be right at he top of my list of things to see. Monument Valley in Utah looks amazing reminds me of the western movies from when i was a kid

    1. Janna C.

      Janna C.

      January 11, 2016 at 1:49 am

      It’s not for everyone but I encourage you to visit the national parks. They are as beautiful as the photos online, if not, more! 🙂

    January 8, 2016 at 8:26 pm

    What fantastic places you have been! We did Orlando this year and Harry Potter was amazing. We all loved it.

      Thanks Lisa! Harry Potter was so nice! I’m glad it lived up to the hype. 😀

  18. Jessica

    January 8, 2016 at 9:07 pm

    Some great places you visited in 2015! We loved Kauai when we went a few years ago. Monument Valley and Yellowstone are high on my list!

    1. Janna C.

      Janna C.

      January 11, 2016 at 1:51 am

      Thanks Jessica! Kauai is my fave! I would def go visit again. You will love them both. Great places to visit for sure!

  19. Anda

    January 8, 2016 at 9:36 pm

    I visited all your favorite destinations, Janna and I loved each one of them. In fact, some of them I liked so much that I keep going back on and on, like in Kauai, New Orleans, or Monument Valley. What a wonderful year you had!

    1. Janna C.

      Janna C.

      January 11, 2016 at 1:52 am

      Nice, Anda! They’re beautiful destinations right? I wish I could go back to Kauai soon. It was the best trip of my life. 🙂

    January 8, 2016 at 10:14 pm

    Happy New Year to you too! Lucky me has been travelling for a number of years but I still haven’t made it to the USA. New Orleans is obviously on my list and the kid in me really wants to get to Universal Studios too. Iceland seems to be a hot destination for 2016 so all the best in getting there and looking forward to see what you get up to this year.

    1. Janna C.

      Janna C.

      January 11, 2016 at 1:53 am

      You should def come and visit the US Alice! Yea, I hope I can make it to Iceland soon. Hope you can visit NOLA and Universal Studios too! 🙂

  21. Rand Blimes

    January 8, 2016 at 10:23 pm

    Aloha. Nice list! I have been to each of these places and agree that they are all pretty great. I live on Oahu, just up the street from where a lot of 50 First Dates was filmed. But I agree that Kauai is spectacular. Did you manage to hit the Kalalau Trail at all? If not . . . you will need to go back, I guess.

    1. Janna C.

      Janna C.

      January 11, 2016 at 1:54 am

      Thank you Rand! Yeah, I’ve heard great things about Oahu too. But I know some areas are too commercialized and crowded. Kauai just has that island vibe that I really love. I didnt get too unfortunately. But I will go hike it when I visit again. 🙂

  22. Stefan

    January 8, 2016 at 11:03 pm

    Yellowstone looks like a dream! And New Orleans such a cool city to visit – every traveller I meet who’s visited raves about how awesome it is. Planning our USA road trip soon and this is gold dust for inspiration. All the best for an even greater 2016 🙂

    1. Janna C.

      Janna C.

      January 11, 2016 at 1:55 am

      It’s stunning there Stefan! You will love Yellowstone! As for NOLA, it’s just rich in culture and the energy is great! I’m glad you found this post inspirational. Hope you get to visit these places too! Happy travels! Thank you. 🙂

  23. Nicole

    January 9, 2016 at 4:55 am

    I love the energy of New Orleans. I’ve only been once but I am dying to go back, my only regret is that we would’ve taken more pictures. What an amazing year you had!

    1. Janna C.

      Janna C.

    January 9, 2016 at 9:59 am

    I have always wanted to go to NOLA, seems like such an interesting city and culture. Our most interesting destination last year included Bucharest, Southern Spain, and Belfast. With the CDN dollar tanking it will be a while before we go back to the States, so NOLA and Yellowstone will have to wait.

    1. Janna C.

      Janna C.

      January 11, 2016 at 1:57 am

      You should go Rob! It’s a great place to visit. Ahhh love your destinations last year. I would love to visit Spain! 🙂

    January 9, 2016 at 4:05 pm

    Absolutely breathtaking photos! I have not visited any of your top 5 destinations, I haven’t done much travelling at all. This year is the year for travel.

      Janna C.

      January 11, 2016 at 1:59 am

      Thanks so much Chantal! That’s so kind of you! No worries, I’m sure you will get to travel and see them in person. Cheers to more travels this year! 🙂

    These are all great unforgettable destinations and you are so lucky to have been to the all. I would love to visit each of these one day with my sons. Hopefully someday we will together. Hawaii would be my top pick. Thanks for sharing you the photos and your experiences.

    January 9, 2016 at 9:56 pm

    I feel really privileged to have visited 3 of your top 5 destinations for 2015. I visited NOLA back in 2008 – not long after Katrina had hit and I was impressed then with the resilience and spirit shown by the community – its nice to hear that they have continued to rebuild. Monument Valley is just stunning, and as for Universal Studios – I miss the days when I could visit whenever I wanted to! Harry Potter World has been added since I was last there so I will definitely have to go back! Thank you for highlighting some of my own highlights from my past travels!

    1. Janna C.

      Janna C.

      January 11, 2016 at 2:01 am

    The US has so much to visit right. All these are great options and so varied. In 2015 my favorite was Namibia, where I spent NYE – such an incredible place!

    1. Janna C.

      Janna C.

      January 11, 2016 at 2:02 am

    Great choices. I went to Maui this year and it was unforgettable. I had been before but this time I experienced some parts of the island I hadn’t been to before. I’m going add Monument Valley to my list on your recommendation. I’m going to Park City in a week or so but Utah in the summer is so beautiful as well. Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. Janna C.

      Janna C.

      January 11, 2016 at 2:09 am

      Thanks Shannon! I, too would love to visit Maui someday. Ooh you should def add Monument Valley to your list when you visit Utah. You will love it! 🙂 And no problem at all, glad you liked it!

    January 10, 2016 at 8:49 pm

    I love this list! Everyone else is all “SE Asia, Europe and South America” so it’s nice to see a list featuring the United States! I admit, I’m one who runs off to Europe every chance I get but I think this year I’ll do more traveling closer to home. Awesome Job!

    1. Janna C.

      Janna C.

      January 11, 2016 at 2:11 am

      Thanks so much Mia! 🙂 Haha those are nice places to visit for sure but I wanted to focus more in the US before I travel overseas. I def want to visit Europe someday. Any recs? 🙂

    Great list! I’ve visited 3 out of the 5 you mentioned. A few months ago I went to Hawaii and Kauai was one of the stops there. I have to agree with you, it really is a beautiful place!

    I think San Francisco was my favourite destination. I was in the US for a month but did not make it to any of your top 5. I sure want to see Louisana and some of the South on my next visit. Love all your photos, would happily add all these places to my list if money was no object!

    My most unforgettable destination in 2015 was Guilin/Yangshuo.

    Exploring China was incredibly interesting!

    Do visit it should you have the chance!

    Oh, you have just made my wanderlust go even crazier! I have been craving doing a USA road trip pretty much my whole life and these pictures just make me want to do it even more. I just hope I can get my friends to come on board to do it 🙂

    So many great destinations! I’m happy you didn’t listen to the NOLA naysayers, it’s one of my favourite cities! My highlights also included Hawaii, though I didn’t make it out to Kauai. Next time for sure!

      I’m glad I didn’t too Tamar! I was told it was dirty and scary. Although the first part was somewhat true (only in the tourist spots like Bourbon St and Jackson Square), it was one of the most interesting and beautiful places I’ve ever been to. You have to go to Kauai! If I won the powerball, I would totally buy a house there! lol

    I absolutely love your site.. Great colors & theme.

    Did you make this web site yourself? Please reply back as I’m looking to create my own website and
    want to know where you got this from or just what the theme is called.
    Appreciate it!

      Hi Jason! Thank you so much. I actually bought the theme and made some modifications afterwards. I got it from MOJO marketplace and the theme is called Angel theme. Hope that helps! 🙂
