Welcome to Traveling Aspirations!

My name is Marisa. Initially, I was going to create a travel blog because travel has always fascinated me. Seeing the world in a new light, seeing history, and beautiful destinations. There’s one problem with that and get ready because this is major confession time:

I’ve never traveled anywhere outside of the east coast of the United States.

That’s right – you heard me. I’m sure now you’re thinking, “Well, hey, wait a minute, how can you be doing a travel blog without travel experience?”

Totally a fair question but here’s my answer: This isn’t your traditional travel blog; bloggers showing everyone their destinations, recommending cheap ways to travel the world, etc..

That’s when I realized that there are so many travel blogs out there. Instead of doing a traditional travel blog, I want to do something different.

This blog will contain beautiful locations, a mix between well-known destinations, semi-known destinations, and pretty much unheard of destinations.

In essence, this blog is what I call my “Travel Bucket List.”

It’s also not only my travel bucket list but yours too. I’m open to requests. I’ll be creating a link on the homepage specifically for requests under the “Get In Touch” section. The “Contact Us” in the bottom right corner can also be used.
