V is for Vacation

Following in the footsteps of unplugging, while hopefully not as…verbose as the previous post.

Right now, I would love a vacation. At this point, a simple day trip would be nice. A change of scene can always help with my perspective and mood. It doesn’t have to be fancy. In fact, too much planning and stress actually defeats the purpose of taking a vacation in the first place. Some people love to travel and get a thrill out of searching for the best airfare and hotels, not to mention filling their schedules with fun or educational activities. I enjoy doing that sometimes, but right now I’d just like to be somewhere other than home, maybe staring at the ocean or lounging by a pool, with no plans.

Sorry, no time for posting photos right now, but here are some of the memorable vacations I’ve taken.

  • Spring Break in Panama City Beach, FL
  • Honeymoon in Sorrento/Naples/Amalfi Coast, Italy
  • First Anniversary trip to Las Vegas
  • Last trip before baby, Biltmore Estate/Asheville, NC
  • First trip with baby, Carolina Beach, NC
  • 2011 Girls Weekend, location undisclosed =)
Do you vacation frequently? What’s your favorite (or fantasy) destination?

  1. Actually – I’m going away for a week starting this coming Sunday! It’s nowhere exotic, just the Isle of Wight, (off the south coast of the UK) – but we’ll do a few touristy things, like visiting Osborne House, where Queen Victoria lived for many years and enjoy the coastal roads and paths. There will be plenty of time for hunting out pubs and relaxing with a book over a pint of beer….just time to stop and rest! 😉

    Just called in on the blog-hop via the ‘surprise me’ button – happy A-Z’ing!

    SueH I refuse to go quietly!

  2. I could so use a vacation right now. With a baby and an older child, I am tired all the time. I am so with you. Just to get away…ahhh….
    Unfortunately, we are not the type to vacation very often. Usually we just go to in-laws’ places. When we do get away, it is a nice change of scenery. Hopefully, we will be able to vacation more. It’s good for the soul, I think, to get out of the routine and see things differently and relax.
