KC - Vacation

With the begininning of summer comes everyone's favorite thing - vacation! That's what Kristin's topic is this week over at Windy Poplar's...

1. What is the most recent vacation you've been on?
I had an amazing "mini-vacay" to Austin this past weekend for the Muddy Buddy race with some great girlfriends! Check out my BFF Jennie's post about it! But as far as a "real" vacation, it was in February on Valentine's weekend when my "then-boyfriend" (now fiance!) took me on a surprise trip to can read about it here.

2. What is the destination of the vacation of your dreams?
Haha, well my highly unrealistic one would be to spend 6 months to a year traveling around the world. But on a more realistic dream scale... I've always dreamed on going on an African safari (I love the raw, wild beauty of it - oh, and the fact that there is literally danger around every corner)...

and touring Eastern Europe (something so remote yet so romantic about this part of the world)....

3. Do you have a favorite place you vacation to regularly?
I don't really consider it a vacation because it's where my family is and where I was born, but I go to New Braunfels at least 3 times a year. It's a great Texas Hill Country vacation spot - especially in the summer when you can float the river! It's right between San Antonio and Austin so there's always something to do.

4. Vacation preference: beach, city, or mountains?
Honestly, it depends on my mood. Sometimes I'm feeling very beachy, and other times more mountainy. I never really have an urge to go to a city, but sometimes I think it's nice - especially when it's NYC for your 21st birthday! Haha.

5. Have you ever vacationed with a group of people (other than your family)? If so: How did you coordinate it, and would you do it again?
The only group I've "vacationed" with was for a study abroad class. Our schedule was pretty much planned out for us and they allowed us to break into small groups in our free time to do our own exploring. I enjoyed it very much, but have not done a group trip since. I've heard group trips can be a lot of fun as long as it stays between around 6 people, otherwise it's too hard to make everyone happy :)

Maybe you should join the Amazing Race! My sis has always wanted to go on a Safari - sure sounds exciting.- Well, I hope you have a wonderful day! Talk to you again soon~
