Q: Summer Break is upon us! What would be the perfect vacation spot for you to catch up on your reading & relax?

For one, I would love to go on a cruise! Just floating around on the ocean, burning sun in the sky and then reading on a comfortable relaxing chair on the side by the pool.
And we (my family, me and my boyfriend) are going to France this summer vacation for three weeks. We always have a big house with a garden and I love reading there. The house is most of the time near by the forest, so you have a nice view and the sun is hot. Just reading there in the garden, I really look forward to it. This time, we're going in the middle of France, but my favorite part is down below by Spain. It's a hell of a ride! We made a trip there and it took us more than 18 hours to get there. My father and a friend of our family drove and it wasn't very pleasant you can imagine.. 18 hours in a car is a bit too long for me, but the beautiful scenery made everything alright.

Other places where I would like to read are warm countries like Hawaii! I would go sight seeing and shopping, of course, but those destinations are the ultimate reading spots for me. I love a warm climate, especially since The Netherlands doesn't have such a thing. I imagine myself right here: in the hammock, with a hot sun, a soft breeze, a cold drink and a fantastic book :D

And wouldn't this be amazing?
I love swimming, so this might be my ultimate destination: just taking a dive from your balcony!

So, what is the perfect vacation spot for you?


  1. Ditto! I want to be in a beach where it's peaceful and quiet. Even just in a place with no distractions, perhaps in my room, alone just reading. :)

  2. I would love to go on a cruise. I have never been on one. I always hear they are boring but I wouldn't mind, I would just read!

    Thanks for stopping by.

  3. I'd love to go on a cruise as well. And those photos are gorgeous, I'd go to any of them!

  4. Thanks for stopping by - a cruise sounds great, but I do like the idea of diving into the ocean from your balcony. :)

  5. I keep seeing cruises but I think I would be to busy to read. I love the last pic, would love to be there just relaxing.

  6. Ah, the beach. LOVE! And the pictures you've used make me want to be there NOW.

  7. I'd love to go to Hawaii one day and just sit on one of the beaches all day with a good book.

    Thanks for stopping by! Old follower. :-)

  8. Oh. I would love to live in England or that area soooo badly. If only for like a year or so. One day I hope to make that possible or something. I want to go to soooo many places over seas. There are just so many sights that I want to see that I can't find in the U.S. Gotta start saving so that I can go in a few years or so. =D

    Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier. =D

  9. Gorgeous pics! Thanks for stopping by :)

  28. That hammock is totally calling my name! Paris is pretty much my most favoritest place on the planet. It's the only place I'd ever live besides Colorado (where I live now). I can just imagine spending my days at the cafés drinking café au laits and reading for the rest of my life :)
