My Latest Wanderlust

Photo by shadowgate

Maybe it’s because I recently watched “A Good Year.” Or it could’ve been the visit to a Virginia lavender farm last weekend. Whatever the reason, I now have a SERIOUS case of wanderlust for Provence, France.

I have so many ongoing fantasy destinations, but this week my mind keeps going to one in particular. I imagine a relaxing summer renting a holiday house in the countryside of Provence, making daily open air market runs, drinking wine and reading books in the garden, eating stinky cheeses, and taking a few side trips to the hilltop village of Gordes and the stunning Gorge du Verdun.

My recent discovery of Pinterest is not helping this mania at all. In fact, it’s making it worse. I mean, look at all gorgeousness Provence offers.

Because of work and other obligations, I won’t be going to Provence any time this summer. Sadly, the closest I’ll get is the Paris Casino in Las Vegas. But I can still lavishly indulge in trifling away hour upon hour on Pinterest, right?

So, that brings us to you! What’s your latest wanderlust destination? Are you a fan of Pinterest? Has it awakened any new travel fantasies in you?

  1. Nice to meet another travel blogger! After spending the last year in Europe, I’ve found myself want to see some sites back home. I think the Grand Canyon is at the top of my list right now!

    I’m totally with you. Pinterest is my latest guilty habit. It sucks up hours and hours of time that I should be working. What’s your handle on the site? Mine is Farsighted Fly Girl, of course.

      Hey Fly Girl,
      It’s a total addiction, isn’t it? The good thing I can say about it though is that it does inspire me to visit places I haven’t thought about before. I’m new to pinterest, so I’m not sure what my handle is… I’ll figure it out and look for yours!
