It’s that time of year again. The time when my thoughts start straying to getting away. Anywhere. Everywhere. Any place other than icy frigid Iowa. To be truthful, I was already feeling the need a month ago. And when my husband booked our trip I sighed piteously and whined, “But that’s two months away!”
It’s a month closer now, but still far too far off. Maybe it’s the extra large class size. Maybe it’s the never ending mound of paperwork that takes hours and hours of overtime to shovel through. Whatever…I’m got an attitude. And a rotten cold. The only thing that will fix both is a week away.
Everyone has their own idea of the perfect escape. I have friends who plan a ski vacation every year. And I admit, it always seems glamorous to me. Right up until the time I’ve spent the better part of a day either on my backside or wiping off my backside :) But you have to admit–it *looks* fun.
Or maybe you like communing with nature on your time off. I have a sister who kayaks on the pristine lakes and rivers of Oregon and Idaho.
At least when they aren’t backpacking in the woods and mountains.
Some of us, however, prefer more sedentary ways to spend our vacations:
Me, I like to pair the relaxation and reading with scenery to die for:
That’s where I’ll be one month from tomorrow. Sigh. 30 long days from now. But the thought of spending seven days looking at this scenery will get me through. It has to :)
Which of the above get-aways most appeal to you? What’s your dream vacation?
