LAST YEAR, I wrote a letter to my mom talking about how I wanted to travel with her. She loved it, and has been bugging me to plan a trip. While we’ll probably start off somewhere small — like Newport, Rhode Island — this is my dream list of mother-daughter trips to take.
1. Reykjavik, Iceland
Iceland is one of those places that’s so small, yet still so uncharted, that every trip there feels unique and different. It also has some of the greatest, warmest sweaters I’ve ever bought. My mom would enjoy talking with the knitting grannies at the Kolaportið Flea Market, hiking through Þingvellir National Park, or petting Icelandic ponies that we randomly came across while road tripping around the island. In the summer, she could party all night under the midnight sun, and in winter, she could brag to her coworkers back home that she’d seen the Northern Lights.
