Summertime Adventures

This summer I have traveled more than I have EVER before. I never quite thought I would be one to want to live out of a suitcase and travel the world but I’m seriously considering ways I can live a nomadic life. What a grand way to spend several months or even a year! Although, that is more of a fantasy than reality, when I’m feeling trapped or stuck, I’ll glance back through the pictures I took of my travels this summer.

My first summer trip was to Virginia for one of my college friend’s wedding in June. Boy, Virginia really is for lovers – and I am now one of them! The wedding was gorgeous.

Several months ago, my best friend and I decided to be spontaneous and plan a birthday/summer celebration trip. We were racking our brains on where we could possibly go. Key West, Portland, Seattle, Charleston? We had a terrible time deciding (especially since we’re both indecisive). I decided I wanted to go out of the country and then, things just fell into place and the countdown was on!

Key West has to be one of my FAVORITE places in the United States. The Florida Keys catchphrase is “Come As You Are” and that couldn’t be closer to the truth than possible. I love everything about Key West. The food, the bars, the friendly people, the roosters, the beach, the mopeds, the night life, the incredible sunsets (and sunrises), Mallory Square…the list goes on and on. Every time I leave I beginning planning my return trip.

I can’t wait for my next vacation. I’m thinking Ireland, although that will take much more planning than any of my summertime travels.  Now, in the famous words of Lana Del Ray, “I got that summertime, summertime sadness”.

P.S. How perfect are these monogrammed passport covers? Sally from So Sally Embroidery, made them for me! I LOVE them! Check out her online store and her Etsy shop for the perfect gift for a friend or yourself!
