I wanna go where it's warm!
Our challenge this week comes from A.S. Fenichel - "It's cold in most places. What's your favorite vacation spot? This can be someplace you've been or someplace you dream of going. If you have a book with a terrific vacation spot, work it in, too. :)"
Welcome to visitors from Jamie Denise's blog. She is awesome and I am sure you enjoyed her answers. If you missed her, hop back!
I'm sitting here, next to a crackling fire, making contingency plans for power outages, and thanking the good Lord that the girls' school division had the unusual good sense to call off school for tomorrow. I am more than happy to share with you my top five vacation spots.
!. Australia- This is such a fabulous country. First, Australians are wonderful, friendly, hospitable people. Accommodations on the Gold Coast are amazing and a great launching point for a trip to dive the Great Barrier Reef. A must visit is Uluru (or Ayer's Rock). The last time I visited I only got three days. Not nearly long enough as it was so spiritually uplifting.
2. The OuterBanks of North Carolina- Mid-summer, October or winter, I adore this oversized sandbar. It is easily accessible from where I live and I used to rent a colleague's beach cottage on the off-season. Rain, sleet or balmy weather, life is truly better on the beach!
3. I saved the best for last. If I won several million dollars, I would high-tail it to the Florida Keys. No matter which key is this long archipelago you choose, you'll find an eclectic collection of folks who have escaped the lunacy of the world to reside in paradise. Others might prefer the culture and glitz of Miami (which is great to visit) but give me tank tops and flip flops any day.
Coincidentally, I have a story set in Marathon but it's not complete. More women's fiction as it's a group of four women who find way more than they expected during their summer break.
So which are your favorite vacation spots? Tell me, I'm dying to add to my to-visit list! After you share, head over to Victoria Barbour's blog to discover her favorite escape!
