Destination: Summer Vacation

So tomorrow, I'm diving into my new classroom to try to get something accomplished. It's like the opposite of a hot mess in that it's totally empty except for the furniture pile.
But until then, I found an awesome linky by Krista that I just had to do! I'm so fortunate in that my parents adore traveling and have been taking my sister and I all over the world since 2nd grade.  So, I have developed a love of travel and if I could, I would travel all the time. I hate the aspect of getting there (airplanes really aren't my thing), but once I'm there, I am so happy. So here are my top three vacation spots!

1. International: Paris.
Paris is probably my favorite city of all time. The architecture, the lights, the food, the fashion, not to mention the historical sites. I love it all. Being in Paris makes me so happy, and if I spoke French, I would definitely move there. I have been to Paris twice, and each time, I never want to leave. It's truly a magical and wonderful city!

2. National: Disney World.
So my family is a huge Disney fan. It was the trip in which I went on my very first airplane ride. I was in second grade; my sister was in kinder, and we both had the time of our lives! 
First trip to Disney! We're sitting on Minnie's couch, which is sadly no longer there D:
Since then, I have been probably ten times. During high school and college, my family would go every year around Christmas time. Disney is completely right when they say that it is the most magical place on Earth. It's so true. Everything is better in Disney. One of my friends is working there for a semester and I am completely envious of her since she gets to live magic and make it happen!

3. Close to Home: Chicago.
I'm doing my old home since I just got to my new home, but Chicago is a city that has so much to do. There is something for everyone whether you love museums, musicals, animals, night life, shopping or food. Yet somehow, I've never seen least I don't remember seeing it.

Buenos noches!


  1. Super cute blog !! I went to Paris when I was high school, and THOUGHT I could speak French. At a dessert stand, I tried to order an apple tart, and ended up saying, "I AM an apple tart". My friend still haven't let me live that down. :)

    Anyway, I've nominated you for a blog award, so please stop by and grab it anytime. :)

  2. Your email/comment won't let me email you back, so...
    You are very welcome for the award AND
    I get the book buckets at Target...they're $2.50 a piece so more pricey than I really like, but they hold up better. For years, I used ones I found at the Dollar Tree, so those will work, too. Thanks for stopping by!

  5. I visited Paris on a high school trip, and I would love to go back. I agree that it is very magical. I'm originally from California, so I grew up going to Disneyland all the time. I have have been dreaming about going to Walt Disney World since I was a little kid. I hope to go soon now that I am a lot closer. I know that I will revert back to being a child as soon as I finally get there.

  6. I never traveled as a kid, but my husband loves to travel, and now I do too! We've never taken our kids to Disney because one of them has a heart condition, but we've been to tons of national parks. We didn't go anywhere this summer because we're saving for a trip to London next summer. I think I should just go link up! Thanks for visiting and I hope you win my owl. I know you'd give him a good safe home!
