Take Me Away Recap – August 2017

Well, I must admit, I am a little heartbroken over the end of summer approaching.  As much as I love the few crisp and cool evenings we’ve had, I am not quite ready for fall to arrive.  Don’t get me wrong, I love fall.  In fact, I love all the seasons but there is just something about summer ending that makes me a little sad.

Enough about me and my seasonal adjustment issues…let’s take a look back at some travel inspiration from the August Take Me Away Party!

If inspiration is what you want, you can’t go wrong in Venice!

The Magic and Romance of Venice

Get lost with Pam from Everyday Living as she takes us on a magical tour of Venice, Italy!

Then trot over to From My Carolina Home to visit Lexington, Kentucky

 Having Fun in Lexington, Kentucky

Come explore Lexington with Carole as she makes her way through fun stores and restaurants in the “horse capital of the world”!

Then we are off to beautiful Vichy, France with Our French Oasis

A Weekend in Vichy

Be prepared to be “wowed” by Susan’s tour of this gorgeous town!  Looks like another one to add to the “must see” list!

Don’t you love to reminisce over all the vacations you have taken?  Our Unschooling Journey did just that and shared it all with us!…

 A Look Back at All of Our Vacations for 23 Years

Such a fun idea and a great way to remember all the wonderful memories!

Our Unschooling Journey spent some time this summer in the elegant seaside town of Newport, Rhode Island

 Touring the Marble House Mansion in Newport

Join her and her boys as they take an educational tour through this exquisite “summer cottage”.  What an interesting tour with plenty of fun facts!

And then follow her one more time to Charleston, South Carolina on a trip without the kids!

 A Sneak Peek at Our Trip to Charleston

What a relaxing getaway to the beachy outskirts of the city.  Wait to you see the gorgeous pool.  I would have a hard time leaving the hotel!

And here is an exciting new place I don’t think we’ve covered at the Take Me Away party before…Cartagena de Indias!…

 Cartagena de Indias – The Walled City

Join Cristina from Remodelando la Casa for a tour of this enchanting Columbian city.  She says it’s one of the most beautiful places she has ever been.  The architecture is amazing and you have got to see all her photos of the magnificent doors!

Cristina continues her travels in Columbia to a town called, Nobsa, Boyaca

Nobsa, Boyaca

Take a tour with Cristina and her sisters to this picturesque town north of Bogota!

  1. So many great places to travel! I will miss the quiet of summer. I love the warm sunshine and cricket sounds at night. I love the empty calendar and lightweight clothing that's easy to throw on. I won't miss the extreme heat or humidity though. I guess every season has its pros and cons.
