Craving a Getaway

Seems like everyone has already or is planning on embarking on a marvelous vacation. And we don't have any scheduled. Which to me is terrifying. We always take a spring vacation, and things are just so unsettled right now that we haven't planned anything really.

I love the feeling of anticipating a trip. And I love even more feeling like I'm far far away from my home. Being in a foreign place, surrounded by languages you don't understand, feeling free and wild and inspired is beyond satisfying or relaxing, it's life-giving. 

Recently a friend mentioned that another friend was thinking about planning a group trip to Mallorca. Friend B is a professional tour guide and had been stationed in Italy prior to attending business school where my husband goes. My ears really perked up when I heard Mallorca; I recently read The Rocks, which is set in Mallorca, and I loved it, it's now one of my faves. It was a great read and it gave me quite a desire to visit Mallorca. Then one of my best friends vacationed there, and now I'm really worked up about it.

So, let's have a look at Mallorca and pretend that it's on the calendar:

See what I mean? Enchanting. Impossibly enchanting. Also you must read The Rocks because he does a fantastic job of transporting you to these locales.

So, who wants to come along? What destinations are making your heart flutter? And what's on your calendar?
