Seek Adventure Travel Happy
Yeah, it's Friday! What what! Sorry, I'm a little excited. I've been daydreaming a bit (by a bit, I mean a lot) about our trip to Italy coming up, and about everywhere else we want to go. I got to plan our big trip for this year, and Pat is going to plan our big one for next year. He wants to do a surf vacation. One where we go to an all inclusive lodge somewhere where part of the package is daily surf lessons...yeah, it sounds awesome and I'm totally on board...pun intended. So, in that train of thought, I figured I would share some of the locations that I'm seriously excited about visiting.
1. Costa Rican Surf Vacation: Costa Rica has awesome jungles for exploring and waves for beginners to experts. Pat and I have been surfing a couple of times (Hawaii and New Zealand), Pat, as usual, is a natural and I flail around a bit trying not to drown. But I think with a week of instruction and a steady stream of mojitos, I should be one with the waves or at least better at not drowning.
2. Greece: 2012 was a little rough for Greece, but 2013 and 2014 has been quieter. Still though, there can be protests, all though the risk of injury is quite low. If you are worried though, Santorini, Crete, Rhodes, Lesbos, and Corfu are all good options. These areas are calmer and rarely see the kind of turbulence that you would see in Athens. This is great news because Greece is beautiful! Ancient ruins, beautiful coast lines filled with sandy beaches and white washed homes. I just want to eat delicious food while I lounge in the sun and take in all the beauty!
3. Hawaii's Big Island: Volcanoes! Need I say more? Oh, ok, obviously the volcanoes would be blazingly amazing to see. So, that is on the list, as are some of the other islands we haven't seen. I mean, no since in flying all that way and not checking out Maui and seeing if our surf skills have improved any.
4. Spain: I have wanted to go to Spain for as long as I can remember. Spain has a rich culture, some of the world's most amazing architecture, beautiful coastline, and mouth watering food. I just want to wander around, get lost and see how much high school Spanish I can remember...it won't be much, I should bring a map.
These are just a few, I have to restrain myself, or I'll go on forever.
What are some of the places you've been daydreaming about? Share in the comments below and Happy Friday!
Hi there! I'm Skeeter. I grew up moving a lot and that makes me a bit restless for travel and exploration. I started this blog with my husband Pat when we decided to backpack New Zealand for a year. We are always looking for the next adventure and are loving life. We're just your average couple with two sassy dogs and a love for travel. We're sharing our travels and the tips we pick up along the way.
Hello! I'm Liz. Blogging is very new to me, but I'm so excited to finally write as much as I talk!
