Before the age of 5 I had seen a good chunk of the world thanks to all the amazing family trips my parents planned. Even before I really figured out what traveling was all about, I had caught the travel bug. When I was at my parents’ place over Thanksgiving weekend I had a chance to look through some family photo albums. I always enjoy the walk down memory lane. I can remember the cities and countries we visited and I try to imagine how my parents traveled with two small children to such far away places.
Here is a very White Cabana worthy photo of me at a beach in Portugal when I was 4 years old.

My tastes haven’t changed too much, have they? Beach, white, red – I’m a happy girl!
How about you? Did you travel as a child? Do you travel with your children?
This past weekend I made a quick trip to Florida and boy-oh-boy was it worth it! I was hesitant to spend the money on a flight (did anyone follow my decision making on Twitter?) since I was just in Florida last month but I am so glad I decided to go. Four days of sunshine, ocean swims, and shopping trips (not to mention meals cooked by my parents and nightly ice cream snacks), made me feel so spoiled. I’m so grateful I had the chance to go!

Where would you go for a four day escape?
I’m in Maine this week chasing ocean waves and eating lobster like a fiend.
See you next week with photos of my travels on the coast!
Well…it’s time for this gal…and this blog…to take a break. I’m off to pretend I’m a retiree down in Florida. I’m so looking forward to a couple of weeks of real down-time. As such, I’ll be taking a break from the blog for the next two weeks. I’ll pop in to say hello if possible…otherwise, let’s meet back here in two weeks. Yeah? Great!
14 days lying on this beach – yes, I feel very lucky!
(And yes, I realize the photo is over-exposed but I think it looks cool. Photo by me.)
If you live in Southwestern Ontario and are anything like me then you must certainly be loving the weather we’ve been having lately. I am loving it! The winter hasn’t been horrible this year but at the first sign of warmth and sunshine, I just love spending as much time as possible outside. One of the things I love about living in London is its close proximity to a few gorgeous beaches. On Saturday I decided to jump in the car and head toward water – to Bayfield to be exact (one of my favourite destinations). It felt so good to put my feet in the sand and get a feeling of the (cold) lake water.
