Holiday Planning in February

The Historic Old Mission Santa Barbara, California

While in the US the number of unused vacation days has reached an all time high, Europeans continue to take vacation planning very seriously and begin thinking about summer and fall getaways, formulating their dream trips, almost as soon as Christmas is over. Unlike so many of my American counterparts, who feel guilty taking time off in our workaholic culture, I find it's such a nice healthy mental escape during the dreary days of January and February, not to mention actual time away! It lightens your spirit with hopeful expectations of looking forward to someplace and something wonderful in the months to come. Last September was one of those times I'll treasure forever; three weeks staying with @thatferalchick, meeting my now dearest @feldtkeller and his family, seeing @risas_peaces and some best girlfriends, sisters really, for a weekend of sharing.
It's dreary outside now, but sunshining inside with all our new plans.
