Summer is upon us

And that means it's time for vacation for many of us you. Besides a possible trip back home to see the family, a vacation for me this summer is only going to happen in my dreams. Since it's only happening in my dreams, then I'm truly making it a dream vacation. So what does my dream vacation look like?

This, of course:

Summer just isn't summer to me without action-packed thrill rides, and like the photo says, "17 Coasters, 1 Park!" I'd be such a happy camper!

I'm also going to Europe. I'll be hitting ALL the touristy spots, all the famous landmarks, and absorbing as many of the different cultures as I can. But I'll have to do it quickly, because I am also going to be following Thirty Seconds To Mars around on what's left of their European tour:

And before you ask, since this is my dream vacation, YOU KNOW I have all access passes for myself +1 for all the shows as well as the finest in travel and accomodations.

I'd also LOVE to head to the upcoming Junk Bonanza! (sadly, no photo available. But do go check the website; I've seen some magnificent things there!) What is the Junk Bonanza, you ask?

From the official website:

"The twice-a-year Bonanza provides a gathering spot for purveyors and shoppers of vintage finds, beautiful antiques, and one-of-a-kind and artisan-repurposed pieces."

Yep; definitely my kind of place! I'm not done yet, though. I've always wanted to just toss a coin on a map of the USA, and road trip to wherever it landed.
*hold on while I run off to toss a coin on a map and see where it lands*

Okay, I'm back. My coin landed on Port Lavaca, Texas. Never heard of it before, but it sure looks pretty! And sounds perfect. In fact, I may want to move there. It's a small town (Population in the 12,000s) on the Texas Gulf coast. Lots of local food, the sea, within two hours of both San Antonio and Houston.

And that also ties in with my last vacation destination, THE BEACH!!! So if I'm not back around September, just look for me in Port Lavaca. Or Some Beach Somewhere. Because I am going to need a nice, relaxing beach vacation to recover from my vacation.

This post is part of Mama Kat's Writer's Workshop. The prompt I chose was "8 places you'd go this summer if money wasn't an object." (Okay....I've only named four, but all of Europe more than bumps me up to 8.) Head over to Mama Kat's for more Writer's Workshop participants and inspiration!

  1. I want to be on this vacation with you, sounds awesome. I would have to add a few trips to book stores to mine though.

    1. Come on, let's go! There will definitely be plenty of book stores to pick through along the way :)

  2. You have me thinking longingly of all the vacations I would like to go on this summer. Alas my kids will be keeping me grounded here at home, but I wish you safe travels and tons of fun!

    1. Oh, I will definitely be grounded here at home myself, even without my kids. But the prompt was "if money wasn't an issue," so I took it, ran with it, and had fun! Who knows? Maybe I will be able to mark one of the items on the list off before the summer is over.

      Thanks for visiting!

  3. A dream vacation that remains in your dreams - what a great idea! Money is no object, so there'd be no limits! What fun!

    See you on the beach!

    1. Money is definitely no object in my dreams! But I need to figure out a way to make at least some of this a reality - that is just too much fun to pass up!

      Thanks for visiting :)

  4. Cedar Point IS roller coaster heaven!! I love it too. Happy to serve as your tour guide/+1 on the German speaking leg of your European tour with the Leto boys. :-)
    Stopping in from Mama Kat's.

    1. Thanks for stopping by! One more is always welcome on my "vacation." I truly hope to make Cedar Point happen one of these days, but I am DEFINITELY going to see the Leto boys in a few cities when they tour the U.S. (please tell me they're eventually going to tour the U.S. - they have a new album out!)

      Thank you for stopping by!

    1. Stacey - it IS! And I am determined to make it a reality.....I'll only be able to do one thing per year, and this year that's going to be seeing Thirty Seconds To Mars in at least two cities when they tour within driving distance of me!

  6. you dream big -- I love that about you!!
    I could definitely use some beach time myself.
    My town is only about 7,000 --- that's pretty small, but thankfully -- there is a nice beach.

    1. Hey, if you're going to dream, then you might as well dream big, right?

      The towns I grew up in had between 3,200 and 6,400 back when I lived there. There's a bit more in those towns now, though. I had access to two pretty large lakes with beaches....can't say the water was all nice, salty, and blue, but I sure had some good times there. And if I ever move back, I hope to find something lakeside!

      I'm glad you have a nice beach :)
