Vacation Daydreams

Today my head is totally in the clouds dreaming of vacationing. I haven't had a sizeable break in a long time (I'm not counting the month of unemployment in the Spring of 2009, that was actually hell). I think the last vacation proper I took was my last college Spring Break trip to Las Vegas. This year, I've been saving up my vacation days for the holidays, so all year long I've just taken a day here and there, no real extended relaxation periods. Boy, am I ready for some serious time off.

Lately (by that I mean the last 2 years, but especially in the last couple of months), lots of people I know are getting engaged and married. I'm already planning to go to several weddings next year. Of all this bride talk, I think the thing I'm most jealous of is the trips. I'm green with envy of Honeymooners. I want permission and dollars to go on a vacation to celebrate myself. We singles deserve that too, dangit.

To pass the time and frustration, I've started researching trips. Mind you, these are trips that I definitely won't be going on. Just dream trips...

Disney World
The not-so-inner child in me craves magic and princesses often. I want to ride space mountain, watch the fireworks, have breakfast with Cinderella; you know...the whole Disney works. I have happy childhood memories of going to Disney world with my family and on a school trip. As far as I'm concerned, there is no out-growing Disney.

This is the trip that I just want to go on for the sake of being flagrant - total frivolous fun. Manfriend isn't really on board - like at all. Boo him.

Land of rich history, beauty, food and wine. I've been wanting to go to Italy for a while now. I've been to other places in Europe, but I really want to see all the specter of Italia. The nerd in me is really wanting to see places I've learned about in history books for myself. I just can't believe that tower leans as much as they say. I can't get my noggin around how old some of the relics there are. They were talking about the preservation of the Colosseum on the Today show this morning, so I have a renewed fervor to go check it out.

I want to go to Italy so bad it's just stupid. This one is my top choice hands down.

Costa Rica
Everybody loves a tropical retreat, especially me. I choose Costa Rica because I think its a tad bit off the tourism beaten path. More natural, more culture, more wilderness adventures to be had. I want to lie on a beach and explore the jungle. Maybe even have a margarita or two....

This one is one is perhaps the most realistic of the three. Maybe I should save this daydream for the summertime when I maybe can save up for it... who am I kidding?  I'd go there any day.

Anyway, fantasyland is fun. Back to work...


  1. YUM. Costa Rica sounds amazing right about now.

  2. Can I come to Costa Rica? I want to go real bad. O, Italy too and I will go to Disney World but only with you.


Thanks for the comment! I"m sending you a big cuddly warm bearhug through the interwebs....
