As soon as I saw what today's prompt for #Blogtober14 was I knew that I would be participating. My love of traveling + being a total dreamer means I LOVE to daydream about my vacation plans. I have so many places I want to visit/re-visit (I'm still working on my Travel Bucket List post thanks to the inspiration of Helene), but there is one thing that sticks out in my mind as my ultimate dream vacation. No it's not Hawaii, Australia, Venice, or Greece - though they are included on my travel bucket list. Actually, my dream vacation doesn't require that I travel too far from my home here in Saskatchewan.
My dream vacation is to take a tour of the United States and Canada - Chicago, NYC (of course), Los Angeles, San Francisco, Cape May, Atlanta, Nashville, Charlotte, New Orleans, Charleston, Denver, Austin, Boston, Jackson Hole, Montreal, Toronto, & Vancouver. And I don't mean take one trip to Boston, then a few months later take another trip to New Orleans. I want to see it all in one vacation - something like this Contiki tour. I can do a week long Mexican vacation or a another road trip to Texas anytime, but taking a month or more off of work just to travel and explore would be the BEST. I always hate when a vacation ends and I usually immediately start planning a new one. With my dream vacation I would be hitting up so many different places that I've wanted to see for so long all at once and I think I would be satisfied with no vacation plans for awhile afterwards.
My sister and I talk all the time about jumping in the car and heading off on an adventure - stopping along the way when we see something interesting. However, our jobs and her tiny humans don't really allow for too much spontaneity when it comes to traveling. One day maybe we'll get to do that, but until then, my dream vacation awaits me.
