Spring Break

"To myself I am only a child playing on the beach,
while vast oceans of truth lie undiscovered before me."
(Isaac Newton)

On February 2, 2011 -- AKA Groundhog Day -- Punxsutawney Phil and Staten Island Chuck both predicted an early spring. I'm not sure about other regions, but the weather has been up and down lately and as I write it is still chilly here in NYC. I'm waiting for the flowers to start budding, for the trees to start leafing, for extended hours of daylight, and to put away my puffy down coat.

But no spring break for me. Life is pretty crazy/messy/hard, so for now I can only fantasize about a beach somewhere. Dream with me of escape to sunny paradise... Which coastal getaways are at the top of your list?

Next destination: Grenada
Wish list: Bermuda, Hawaii, New Zealand
Repeat wish list: Costa Rica, Greece, anywhere in Mexico

Seaside Travel Highlights: 2000-2010

St. John
St. Thomas
Great Stirrup Cay, Bahamas
Puerto Rico
Costa Rica
Cancun, Mexico
Acapulco, Mexico

Although I'm currently focusing on beachy locales, I was inspired by a recent post on Home Design with Kevin Sharkey that got me pining for any vacation. If you're looking for a great travel blog, I recommend Nomadic Matt's Travel Site. Another informative resource is New York Magazine's Travel section. Slowly but surely, I'm learning how to find and follow good sites.

  2. Dang, you've actually been to all these places?

  3. Over the span of 10 years. I haven't been to any beach in over a year. :(
