Another hobby is spending my summer vacation and visiting new places. However, planning a holiday with the kids in the picture is not an easy task. My husband has a joke that I start planning every minute we start the current one. And then, in the cliché, it’s funny because it’s real.
I have an active list of all the places I want to go. And for some, the more a child grows, the more he will grow up. There are so many experiences I can’t wait to have!
Here is a list of my summer vacation dreams right now:
- El Cosmico, Texas
My husband is one of those boys who think of camping on the sidewalk with countless starchy ropes. I think he was just shocked to set up a tent cooking food on the fire. I’m sure if I remove those two bad things, it will be a game. Super hip El Cosmico is my gateway tree.
• Fincas Las Nubas, Nicaragua
We’ve almost booked this place twice. Lush forests, tropical wild monkeys, a biodiversity farm, a rugged coastline, and an open-air house surrounded by trees. One time when I was talking to the owner on the phone about going with the baby and asking if they had a bed, he said, “No, but that doesn’t matter – we’ll just do it for you.”
• Saugerties Lighthouse, New York
Certainly a little corny, but what kids wouldn’t turn out to be living in an old lighthouse! Yes, since the two-year-old is still wearing diapers, I hesitate to commit to the one-mile journey to this stone house with all our gear. But as soon as my children were able to carry their bags, I booked one of these two rooms.
• Parkamoor, England
Everyone is busy, but I doubt that anyone can convey the idea of spending a quiet week with their family in a rural farmhouse, decorated by a modern non-electric team. Make the area a rural English language. It gets better and it gets better.
• Le Lieu Perdu, France
Before I had children, I wanted to spend a month or two in France in the summer. But, unfortunately, they are growing rapidly, so I plan to keep all these amazing houses on my list until it is officially completed.
Now that I have told you my secret, what are some of the attractions that have not yet come out of your bucket list? I want to read them in the comment section below!
