Let "Travel Addict" Jillian Harris Help You Plan Your Next Vacation
If you follow former star of The Bachelorette Jillian Harris on Instagram, you know she's a voracious globetrotter, traveling both for work (as the cohost of Love It or List It Too) and for pleasure with her family, friends, and boyfriend Justin. So if you're in need of some vacation destination inspiration, let self-proclaimed "travel addict" Jillian — a POPSUGAR Select Living blogger — lead the way with her top five places to visit.
When I was in high school I never really had the desire to travel. See, I grew up in Peace River, Alberta, Canada — where, if you grew up there, you'd think everything you ever needed was there or in Edmonton. Of course, I had been to Mexico, Hawaii, and on a trip to LA with the girls when I was in my early 20s.
Now, I am a complete travel addict. While I have many places left to see, I'm proud of how I've fit travel into my already busy life and excited for the trips to come. So, where did the addiction start? Well, like any good therapy session, I have to dig deep . . . ahhh yes, there it is — The Bachelor.
My two-year appearance on The Bachelor and then The Bachelorette changed my life in so many ways. It made me stronger, it made me less judgmental, more open minded, and it gave me a thirst to see the world. I've been to Spain, France, Italy, Mexico, all over the states, Ireland, Scotland, England . . . to name a few of my favorites. The list is small (in my eyes), but I can't wait for it to grow. But I will tell you something, some of these places have become a part of my soul, even typing the words Ireland makes me smile and giggle inside. So, without further adieu, here are my top five favorite places to travel and why.
