While we’re all sitting in our offices and staring out of the windows at the bold world out there, there is always an under lying burning or an urge. It’s your wanderlust calling, and unless you’re in the elite and the leagues of the fabulously rich – you’re going to feel wanderlust more often than not. It’s that burning, that urge to travel, that need to explore the world.

We love traveling, and adding to our bucket list and places to visit and travel. That moment of being immersed in another culture, another country and another place a world away is amazing and something that once you experience it will call you back again and again. Even before we are home from one trip, chances are we’re planning our next one and finding new corners of the world we want to visit.

If you need a kick start of your wanderlust here are a few of the places that are on our “Must See” list, and we hope to check them off soon!

Isle Royale National Park is a remote island cluster in Lake Superior, near Michigan’s border with Canada. It’s a car-free wilderness of forests, lakes and waterways, where moose and wolves roam. The Greenstone Ridge Trail links the Windigo Harbor in the west and Rock Harbor in the east. The 19th-century Rock Harbor Lighthouse has a small museum. Dive sites in the lake include several shipwrecks.

This beautiful island is closer to the Canadian border than it is to Michigan and surrounded by the chilling waters of Lake Superior. This provides azure blue water that is crystal clear in several spots. Isle Royale offers beautiful sights as well as a loaded history – it’s a perfect place to feed your wanderlust.

Due to harsh winter conditions, there are dates that you aren’t able to visit the island, be sure to check the schedule if you plan your visit!
