Yesterday, I briefly mentioned that I’m planning a big trip for November. I love the changing seasons, but I start to become restless once the cold and dreary weather really sets in. Maryland weather can be awful in the fall and winter months—though a huge blizzard is kind of fun when you’re in the midst of final exams (well, only when said exams are consequently canceled).
For a little humor on a Wednesday evening, watch this completely candid video. You are welcome.
(That would be my sister, Ali. I don’t trek through 38 feet of snow, thank you very much.)
Knowing that I’d be ready for July temperatures after about a month of cooler weather, I decided to go ahead and plan a beach trip. In less than a month, I’ll be on a plane and headed to an island. It’s only October and I’m already craving the three b’s that exemplify summer perfectly—beaches, bikinis, and beers. Besides, a week of vacation means pure relaxation, delicious food, and good company.
If it has to be fall [then winter and spring] before it can be summer again, then a vacation to a warm climate is clearly in order. So, where exactly am I going? Curacao! Curacao is part of the ABC islands, located in the Dutch Caribbean. It’s beneath the hurricane belt, so I’m hoping for picture-perfect weather. I’m mostly excited to feel hot sand beneath my toes, but I’m also looking forward to experiencing the rich culture that this hidden gem has to offer.
The resort where I will be staying is kind enough to offer me complimentary internet access so that I can blog during my stay, but I also want to line up some guest posts. If anyone is interested in doing a guest post for me, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I have a few ideas for some posts, but all topics are welcome!
Do you like blizzard weather?
Are you planning any trips in the near future? If so, where are you going?
Ever been to Curacao?
