if I could take 3 months off..

I realized this morning that I didn't really explain where yesterday's post came from.  I mean I know you are curious about where I am from and all but the idea to write about it was not mine.  Jenni from Story of My Life has yet another blogging challenge the month of September called Blogtember (if you remember, I participated in one she hosted in May as well).  For each week day throughout the month of Septemeber she has come up with prompts, for those who choose, to blog about.  I have been in a "I have no idea what I am going to blog about funk" recently so this came at the perfect time.  

Today's prompt is:  If you could take three months off from your current life and do anything in the world, what would you do? (bonus points for fun photos from Pinterest, but don't forget to cite the source!)

This is pretty easy. I'd travel.  
One of my biggest regrets is not studying abroad in college.  I let my fear of flying get in the way of doing so.  But since heading over the big pond in June 2012 to Ireland & Scotland the travel bug has really gotten me.  
I often find myself daydreaming of happily getting lost among the cobblestone streets of Europe, among the beautiful architecture surrounded by a foreign tongue.  Where to go would be the hardest part.  There is seriously not one place on this planet I do not want to see.  I want to really experience the culture of each place I go so visits longer than just a few days would be ideal.  I do not want for much, so hostels would be perfectly fine by me.  

I do, however, have one request.  That I spend at least 10 days in Greece.  Preferably in hotels that are white and with infinity pools with access to the beaches to soak up the sun and swim in the bluest of blue ocean.  Just like on the travel sites.  I don't think that is too much to ask for, do you?;)

Tell me, if you could take 3 months off of real life, what would you do?

And since it is Wednesday, it is time to share my 365 photos with you.  Sorry for the 365 upload.  I know there is like almost a month's worth of photos here but I like having a place where I can see them all at once.  
I hope you enjoy.

  1. First off, can I stowaway in your bag when you go to Greece? Definitely one of my dream vacation spots! Second, that sparkly sand photo is magical. I wish I was there now...

  2. your photos are fantastic! and take me with you when you travel please :)

  3. Greece was on my list too! So dreamy, that place.

  4. ohh, your photography makes me swoon.

  5. What a fun prompt! And I totally regret not studying abroad either. Alas though, I was the first one to go to college in my family and I didn't know school loans were a real option, haha. I think I would absolutely LOVE to go to Greece too- the pictures make it look crazy breathtaking. Though my next trip, for sure, is going to be to Iceland. It just looks so other-worldly!

  6. I have been in the same funk as you so was super excited when Jenni announced blogtember.
    I think three months off is the perfect amount of time to travel!
    I just wish I didnt have to carry everything in a backpack :)

  7. Hey girl! You need to stop on over at my site and pick up your questions...You've just been nominated for the LIEBSTER AWARD! : )

  8. You TOTALLY need to come to my beaches in Pensacola, FL (Destin/Panama City are real close by).. they are the most beautiful, sugary sand beaches that are breath taking, pretty much anytime day or night!!



I love hearing from y'all. Comments are my favorite!
