Vacations I would like to go on
It is that time of year where it gets dark outside much earlier than one would hope, one dreary day can sort of meld into another, and sometimes I can go the entire work day without ever feeling warmed up no matter how many layers of clothing I'm wearing. It is the time of year when I randomly will type in "hot, dry desert" into Google images to make myself feel better. So let's talk about something fun - good ideas for vacations! Pretend it is no longer winter- instead, it is a perfectly mild day, and I am wearing something like this:
- I loved this story on NPR about the father and daughter who went on a BBQ journey. Here is their blog. Ever since watching Friday Night Lights and going to Capital Q, I have just thought a BBQ Tour would be so much fun. Although possibly my above wardrobe choice could get messed up with some sauce.
- I read in Wine Enthusiast magazine about Blantyre in Lenox, MA. Go check out these ridiculous wine tastings that are complimentary with the price of a stay. Of course, the cheapest room is $600 and there is a two night stay minimum, but a girl can dream.
- Sur La Table has a 6 day 5 night pizza/beer extravaganza in Italy. Ahhh, I read the description, and I die.
- I want to go back to Mackinac Island so bad. There's lots of fudge and ice cream. You rent a bike and ride around the island. There are no cars. It is beautiful, and then you get back on the boat. Tons of fun. Then, if you are lucky you can go on over to St. Ignace on the Upper Peninsula and eat a pasty and some amazing Great Lakes white fish.
