take me away...









It pains me to say that I have yet to leave the comfort of California; ever. Born and raised here, I have never had the opportunity to travel, but I have always yearned to see the real world - not just what they show on television.

In just a little over two months, August 20th, my six year anniversary will have arrived (I know!) and I want to do something both memorable and monumental; I feel a vacation is the perfect solution.
I also have recently graduated my first years of college, and although I eventually plan to return, I want to do something amazing & see the world before I get back to my daily grind of term papers, studying and exams.

I'm thinking somewhere sunny & warm... beachy perhaps, with a gorgeous view... good culture, amazing food, lots of sight-seeing... somewhere incredibly peaceful and relaxing....

Now because I know very little about vacationing, I am going to ask you, my readers, where your best vacation spot has been and maybe offer me some recommendations for my first real venture out into the world.

Where's your very favorite place to travel?

  8. Oh wow, these pictures are stunning. I want to go away somewhere amazing this summer too! But I haven't been many places, so I don't really have any suggestions... personally, I have always wanted to go to Paris, London, Barcelona, or anywhere along the Mediterranean - some day!

  10. Thank you all for the wonderful comments :) I am definitely going to be on the hunt for a perfect vacation spot & working on saving up!

    I believe the first two photos are from Greece, actually and the second to last photo is indeed Bora Bora (nice call, girly!)

    I am serious in love with these photos - all of those places look like a dream to me; all of them seem too perfect and serene to be real. Keep the good ideas coming ;)

  16. Beautiful photos! It depends on what kind of holiday you want. Europe is good for almost everything!! Otherwise I would have said Mexico because that's less far for you but maybe not at the moment (with the oil spill and all...).

  17. LOVE LOVE LOVE traveling.

    here are the top 3 places i've never, been but am dying to visit.

    1. New Zealand - if you've seen Narnia the LWW, (hey, i love the series and the movies actaully arent that bad, and Peter & Edmund are CUUUTE) ANyways, they filmed there and it looks GORGEOUS. seriously, the coast? sand beaches and clear, glorious water. top on my wish list of places to go.

    2. Italy. I was good friends with an exchange student from there and i learned so much. the towns in italy are vintagy and colorful and extremely senic as they sit next to the mediteranian. everyone who i know has been there, has come back in awe of its beauty. plus, it literaly has the best food in the world.

    3. France. i love the culture, language and food. im really hoping to be fluent someday. im working on it :D but have you seen pictures of the cote d'azur??? they're stunning.

    I know this may not be a place with white beaches or the kind of tropical you're looking for, but i recently got back from a 2 week trip to China. It was phenomenal. We had 5 incountry flights, traveling all over. Hong Kong was my favorite-- i would love for you to check out all my posts on my trip, i would be very pleased.

    but hey, California isnt a bad place to be... my cousins live there and its pretty dang gorgeous itself :D
