Best vacation ever?

19 Jul

Hello, friends!

The number of days until my summer trip are winding waaaaay down… only TWO days until I go to London!


I don’t have tickets to the Olympics…

I won’t be seeing Will and Kate (and if I do, I will DIE)…

BUT, it will be my first time there and I will be reuniting with Katie, one of my best friends from school!

Circa 2010, as Champagne and Jose Cuervo for Halloween.

Sporting a classier look for a sorority event.

Katie and I have been friends since freshman year and I haven’t seen her since graduation (almost two months ago!).  We always have so much fun together and she is THE girl to see London with.  She has family there, studied abroad there and has been there numerous times.  I’m so excited to see London with her!

As I get ready to jet off to London, I got to thinking about how fortunate I am when it comes to traveling and taking vacations.  In my short 22 years I have gotten to see a lot of places.  My recent favorites:

Studying abroad in Pescara, Italy in the summer of 2010.  We also visited Rome, Pisa, Naples and Florence.

The Amalfi Coast. One of my favorite places ever.

Going to Costa Rica for spring break with four of my girlfriends in March of 2011.

Going to Sicily, Italy for my parents’ 25th wedding anniversary in the summer of 2011.

Going to Montego Bay, Jamaica with nearly 50 friends from school for spring break in March of this year.

Needless to say, I am extremely fortunate and am so grateful to have been able to see all of these wonderful places.  I recognize that the next few years will be crazy and that law school and “real life” will probably keep me out of the traveling scene for awhile.  I love to explore new places and can’t wait to travel more in the future.  I don’t think I can pick a favorite vacation, but Italy does hold a special place in my heart after living there for 6 weeks.  And Jamaica might have been the best week of my life.  Let’s see where London will stack up!

Questions for the Afternoon:

  • What is the best vacation you have ever been on?  Where is your dream vacation spot for the future?
