Travel bug.

Exactly two years ago today, I was traveling the world with my family.

We took in gorgeous Moroccan architecture.
We dined at a wine cellar restaurant in Canada.
We visited quaint little English shops and gardens.
Oh, and we got a picture of the Eiffel tower while we were in France.

Okay, okay. So we were at Disney World. :) In the World Showcase in Epcot.

We also made friends with hungry ducks.

Seriously, Disney World is one of my most favorite places ever.

And since I haven't had the opportunity to traipse all over Europe yet, this was the next best thing. But it's been two years this week since we've had a vacation, and though we can't go anywhere right now, I have the travel bug.

We don't have the Travel Channel. Here are some movies I'm planning on watching to get my travel fix:

Roman Holiday
Leap Year
The Sound of Music
and some cheesy Scotland and Wales train ride video I have. :)

But I hope you all read this far, because I need some help, guys. I probably should have put this at the beginning of the post. I really want to read some new travel/Europe books. It doesn't really matter whether they're fiction or nonfiction. Books like "The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society" or Laura Jensen Walker's "Getaway Girls" series. Any good books that involve traveling to Europe or living in Europe.

Please give me some suggestions! I would even read something like "My Life in France," by Julia Child, at this point. I know some of you guys read these types of books. Help me out here. It's snowy and I'm inside all day.

P.S. I'm planning on getting these books that ya'll suggest from the library...not buying them. In order to stick with my resolution, I'm setting a certain amount that I'll allow myself to spend on books or movies each month.

In other news, I don't have to go back to school for a week! I only have classes on Mondays and Wednesdays. Today's class was canceled (public speaking-ha!), and there are no classes Monday. So I don't have to go back until next Wednesday! Can you tell by all of the exclamation points that I'm excited?!! :)

Now I'm off to do battle with my book handbag again. Good grief. I've just finished removing the glue off my hands from yesterday.

Until next time,

  1. Okay, here's a couple book recs that I think "transport" the reader. :)

    Sons of Thunder or In Sheeps Clothing by Susan May Warren
    The Swiss Courier by Tricia Goyer and Mike Yorkey
    Agatha Christie - any of her mysteries set in Egypt!
