I need a vacation in the worst way....unfortunately I don't see one in my immediate future. The one I'm imagining is on the beach in the Outer Banks, far from crowds, with a book and my dogs, just sitting on the sand everyday, doing.....nothing. ahhhhhhh. Okay, back to reality. Whether or not a vacation is in your immediate future - these photos are sure to give you the travel bug.
Next time you do decide to travel, maybe instead of a generic hotel, try checking out apartments for rent in the area where you're going. When my boyfriend and I went to Paris and Switzerland we stayed in apartments instead of hotels and we really, really enjoyed it. I get tired of eating out, and it's nice to go to local markets and bring them back to the apartment and do a little of your own cooking.
Below are some examples of what you're missing when you stay in a hotel:
How about a little time in North Italy?
Or a Paris pied-à-terre
Or this view out of your Barbados bedroom...yes please!!!
A swanky Detroit studio
or, some authentic New Mexico digs....
What do you think? Ready for a vacation?
