August Blog Giveaway
Want to ask a travel blogger an impossible question? Ask them what their favorite vacation is? Go on, see how that works out. The theme for this post is actually “The Most Exciting Vacation You Have Ever Taken”. Oh boy. Impossible to say. So many vacations have been exciting in their own way. Its like picking your favorite child. No can do. However, I can share some of my most favorite places. Places I would consider returning to again and again and places that I want to add to my list. That is easy.


1. Hatteras Island, NC: Ahhh, Hatteras, how I love thee. One of my most favorite places on Earth. It is soothing and relaxing spending time at the Ocean. We love to rent a house for a week and just watch the waves crash upon the shore. No schedule, no deadlines, just being.

2. Yellowstone National Park: Geysers, wildlife, hot springs, and incredible beauty. When you want to get away from it all this is the place to go. There is very limited cell service in the park so you really are disconnected from the outside world. On our visit we spotted Elk, Buffalo, Deer, Bear, Wolves, Coyotes and more. I highly recommend pitching a tent and embracing the great outdoors.

3. Italy: I haven’t made it to Italy yet, but I just know that this will be a very memorable destination. Just the thought of walking through all that history, tasting great wines, and finding fantastic olive oils is very exciting. I can’t imagine actually being there to experience it. That is going to be one hell of a vacation!

    Sad to say that I haven’t been on any vacations to speak of. So I guess the beach would be it.

    Yellowstone is a great choice! I absolutely fell in love with the place while I was there, but it’s also important to note, that it is not an amusement park. It’s disappointing to me when I here people ask “Well, I mean, what is there to DO there?”. If you are not ready for an outdoor adventure, don’t go there.

    Italy is magical, every city! I hope you can go one day. My husband and I would love to do a wine tour of Tuscany some time.

    This is a tough one….do I choose one before I was married, after, before children, after children???
    I really loved my trip to Costa Rica when I was still single. It was beautiful in the mountains and at our hostess’s home in San Jose. I also experienced an earthquake while there, it registered 5-6 on the richter scale.
