Hilton Head Beach, South Carolina
It's summertime! Time for vacations and stay-vacations and everything in between.
If you could travel anywhere this summer, all expenses paid, where would you go? South of France? Disneyland? A patisserie in the shadow of the Eiffel Tower?
Would you climb Machu Picchu? Or brave Mount Everest? What about snagging a lazy patch of beach on the Florida coast? Or perhaps the sun-drenched west coast is your preference. Or fishing in Alaska? Or cruising the Mediterranean? Or how about touring the castles of Europe?
Machu Picchu (Lost City of the Incas)
built in 1480, at the height
of the Inca Empire (Peru)
Personally, the last one would be my first choice. I'd love to tour the castles of Europe. That's been on my bucket list for years. I'd start with Highclere Castle just in case the Granthams are home, then I'd move on from there. Wanna come?
It's fun to dream! If you're like me, wherever and whenever you go on vacation, you take a book (or several) with you. No vacation is complete for me without time to read.
I was cooking turkey burgers Sunday afternoon and making Black Bean Salsa (oh so delicious, recipe here) while also listening to an audiobook, and my husband came in shaking his head. "You're reading even as you're cooking?"
Yep! Never waste a minute.
Reading allows me to take mini-vacations. I can travel back in time to 19th century Colorado Territory, to Missouri, Michigan, Idaho, Tennessee, Texas, Montana––even 18th century England––and never leave my cozy reading chair. And so can you!
