I'm a little bit bummed because right after Spring semester last year, I spent several days like this:
Oh how I wish I was Mexico bound right now! I hear Puerto Vallarta calling my name, but sadly I'm not able to answer this year. I did consider it, but the reports of violence got the best of me once I read that kidnappers would inject you with acid if your family couldn't make ransom demands. Once Mom and Dad purchased the Rock Star Tour Bus, I figured chances of money left for my ransom were slim to none!
I did recently receive the semi-annual edition of Budge Travel's Girlfriend's Getaway guide in the mail. They published what they call "the bliss list". It says, "Pack your bags and gather your girls...these eight destinations have everything you need to relax, renew and bond all over again!".
The eight places are:
(1) Santorini, Greece
(2) Niagara Falls, N.Y.
(3) Paia, Maui
(4) Tulum, Mexico
(5) Sausalito, California
(6) Savannah, GA
(7) Montego Bay, Jammaica
(8) Bora-Bora, French Polynesia
The exciting news is that I am in the planning stages of a trip to one of these destinations in October! My friend Jenn and I are having a girls getaway. Jenn used to live in Florida (1 mile from beautiful beaches) and visiting her there was enough of a getaway, but last summer she moved to Fayetteville, North Carolina.
Which of the destinations are we headed to? Santorini? Lord knows I wish! Bora-Bora? Not likely. Maui? Would be nice too.
Here are some photos of our destination...
Hey, Yall! We are Savannah bound! I'm planning to fly into North Carolina so I can visit Jenn's peeps and see her new house and then we will drive (4 hours) to Savannah for a few days. I think I'm going to fly back home directly from Savannah. I have selected our hotel and have started selecting restaurants... of course there will be a stop at Paula Deen's Lady and Son's! We aren't certain about the exact dates because we are waiting on Jenn's husband to return from Iraq and get his work schedule in order ('cause you know we are leaving him on kid and puppy duty). I'm very excited though!!!
