Dreaming, wishing, saving…I’m a victim to the insatiable wanderlust. I want over stamped, filled and flimsy passports and books of glossy photographs. I’ve never been one to be happy and content sedimentary and in one place. My Travel board on Pinterest is chock full of escapades I’m coveting, and in time will do. Every year, I make it a point to go to both a state I’ve never been to and a country I’ve never been to (a journey I decided on at the end of 2011).
Summers are definitely the best time to travel; nothing screams summer like a windows down roadtrip in good company. This summer, 2013, will be no exception, and I feel ready to share with you all my plans that I’m giddy to get underway. And even though I’m still technically settling into my new mid-Atlantic locale, I still can’t help but travel and venture further! I’m considering doing a “wanderlust” series here on the blog of all my favorite places in the places I visit, but was curious if you, dear readers, would be interested in that! Also, any one who has been to these places and has recommendations, please send them my way!
May 24-26 Nashville, TN
The new beau and I are taking the first roadtrip of the season to a place neither of us have ever been to; Nashville, Tennessee! I’m excited to check out all the southern restaurants (even if there won’t be any wings on my plate), as well as checking out the local shops and drinking homegrown whiskey. Speaking of Whiskey, I will most definitely be visiting and touring the Jack Daniels distillery. A girl like me loves her Whiskey (I mean, my Tumblr is named Glamour Girls and Whiskey). Anyone have any specific recommendations!?
July 5-13th Scarborough, Maine
This trip is a yearly trip, so it’s nothing new to me, but definitely something I look forward to annually. My parents’ summer home is right on the gorgeous, private beach in southern Maine, barely a mile north of vacation hot spot Old Orchard Beach. This year I’m just excited for a getaway and a tan! Bring on the Bikinis!
July 27th- Aug. 3rd Bethany Beach, Delaware
Delaware is surely a state I never thought I’d spend time; I guess it being so small I never thought to give it a shot, but this summer it’s on! I’m joining a family for a relaxing week on the beach! Like I said, I’ve never been so recommendations on things to do would be great, even though I think most of my time will be spent with my nose in a book, working on that tan some more.
September/October VIVA MEXICO
Okay, so this trip is barely planned. I want my damn passport stamp, I want adventure, I want sand and sun (I mean, when don’t I want a beach!?). The pull to Mexico? Whale Sharks. I’m very passionate about the ocean and it’s creatures, and it’s been on my bucket list for years to swim with whale sharks. In recent years I’ve discovered I could take the easy way out and head down to the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, but who wouldn’t want the extraordinary experience of swimming with the mystical beasts in their own habitat? Like I said, plans are still very up in the air for this, so if any readers have swam with whale sharks or been to Mexico, please give me your recommendations NOW!
Again, I urge you for info, recommendations, and if you’d like to see a whole “wanderlust” series here on EffortlessCool! For now, I leave you with some inspiration:
