Destination: Summer Vacation Linky

Hey all....so I have finally arrived...
...at 300 followers that is!

I feel so honored and blessed to have all of you here to swap ideas with!

I thought about hosting a 300 follower giveaway to celebrate, but I have been contemplating hosting a new linky party for a few weeks now, and thought what better way to celebrate than to have a PARTY (linky style). 

I have seen so many of you post this summer sharing that you have been a little MIA because you went on some fabulous vacation, and frankly, I want in the fun ;)!

I absolutely loveeeeeee traveling (as I am sure many of you do), and the easiest time for most of us to do it is during the summer months! Thus, I thought it would be fun to share our favorite travel experiences so that we can learn a little bit more about one another as well as gather some ideas in order to book our next vacay! I don't know about you....but I am always looking for new destinations to try out to relax and have some fun after a long, learning-filled school year! 

So here are the "rules" if you will:
1. Post the linky image below into your post.
2. Share your "TOP 3" (3 because we are celebrating 300 followers ;)) summer travel destinations (pictures are always a bonus...so we can drool over where you've been ;)). And seriously...if you love traveling to your local beach, park, neighbors backyard...own it!
3. Link up your post below so that others can check it out!

Looking forward to seeing all of your summertime destinations!

My "Top 3" Destinations: 

1. International:
Tivoli, Italy

I went here on a side trip when I was studying abroad in Rome during college one summer, and it was just so quaint, peaceful, and gorgeous. We took a bus there; I believe it was only about 1 hour each way. It is known for its spectacular gardens and Roman temples.

2. National:
San Francisco, CA

San Francisco is just such a unique city in my opinion. I could just walk the streets for days taking it all in (not to mention it would be a killer work out). There are just so many things to do and see! My favorite thing that we did was bike across the Golden Gate bridge, and then ride the ferry back to San Fran. Great views! If you have never been there, I would highly recommend it!

3. Close to Home:
Door County, Wisconsin

I love all of the little shops and bed and breakfasts in Door County. Not to mention you can just hang out at the beach if you'd like -or- participate in a vast array of adventure activities like parasailing, mopeding etc. We have been there as a family several times in the summer time!

Alright...now it's your turn. Where do you go to recoop and have some fun when schools out for summer?!


  1. Your pictures from San Francisco make me homesick. I just moved from San Francisco to Louisiana in January. I definitely miss all the unique places in the city and being able to walk every where. I will look through my pictures now to make my list.

  2. I love San Fran! I have family that lives there and I got to visit a long time ago (15 years?). I'm trying to convince my husband to go back!
