This week’s Friday theme is about a topic that’s often on my mind:
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Cities such as Prague, London, Barcelona, and Lisbon call to me from across the globe, tempting me to come explore. Then there are adventures to be had in Thailand, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Brazil, Australia, New Zealand, Tanzania, and India, too.
But as much as I love exploring a new city or country and challenging myself to see and experience as much as I can, I am in rather desperate need of some rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation. It’s been a challenging and difficult
week month year in my corner of the world and all I can think about is sitting in a hammock on a beach somewhere, reading as many books as I can, pausing only to watch the sunrises and sunsets and to make sure the tiny umbrella in my beverage hasn’t blown away.
So where will I seek such luxuries? At the top of my beachy list is Hawaii. I also wouldn’t mind the Seychelles, Mykonos, or Fiji. Normally, a few days of this kind of slow-paced travel would be plenty for me and then I’d be itching to go explore a city, but I think I could suffer through a month or two on the beach before things got too boring.
I would rent a small house or cabin with a front porch overlooking the water and while away the hours with this basic unscheduled, itinerary of events: sleep, eat, read, write, walk on the beach, swim, nap, practice British accent, write, read, eat, watch some movies, and sleep some more until I got sick of that routine. Then I’d mix it up by switching the order of things, adding in an extra nap, having midnight dance parties beneath the stars, or installing a zip line between my porch and a palm tree down by the water just to keep things exciting. Anything’s possible.

Where would you go, adventurous readers? Are you more drawn to a relaxing vacation on the beach or exploring a big city? Or is a hiking/camping/biking adventure more your speed?
