let's go on a roadtrip



I love holiday weekends so much. Even if there's nothing particularly special going on, I just love the festive feel in the air with everyone gathering together and having a good time. I don't really want the weekend to be over, so I guess that is why I am dreaming of a roadtrip...
















So tell me, where would you choose to go on a road trip to?


"To travel hopefully is a better thing than to arrive."

I love road trips, I'd go nowhere on a road trip just for the adventure.

I did a road trip from Indiana to Florida with my family back in 2008 but I'd love to do one across the states and see more. Hopefully I'll get to in the future!

beautiful photos! I love roadtrips. I'm going on one with my friends soon, one of our friends recently moved far away to finish his med school residency so we're going to visit him! I'm so excited. I'd love to do some big road trips in America with my boyfriend. I'd have to get used to driving on the wrong side of the road though!

Roadtrip - what fun! I want to travel up the California coast...its beautiful (I'm sure you know that already though :)

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Oh how I love that quote...it is similar to Albert Camus' words:

La vie n'est pas une destination.
La vie est un trajet.
Tant qu'on continuera
on reussira.

Translation:

Life is not a destination, but a journey. As long as you stay on that journey, you will succeed.

Now don't ya think this is a message for us, dearest? Keep painting. You and me both, or any of us pursuing a dream, we are on a journey. We are following something. We MAY not GET to the destination....we don't know. But we have an AIM. But the journey is filled with beautiful roadstops of reflection, growth, even DETOURS.....we must all be alert travelers. THANK YOU FOR COMING BY and your visits as usual are a sweet moment of friendship. Oh dear...did I miss a post from you...I must check out the previous post...

DID you have a great fourth? We just read, napped, ATE, sat on the couch and watched great movies and stayed in. WHAT BLISS!

Enjoy the journey dearest! Anita

I love to travel - long or short distance. :-)

Vintage is for Lovers said...

Amazing. I felt the exact same way this morning! So much so that I decided to source images of sailboats in an attempt for a day dream of sailing away! xo Samantha

tywo said...

My dearest. These photos are beautiful. I'm glad you have been making things for your shop :)
I'm planning a trip to Wisconsin. I want to camp, and hike. The only problem I have is telling my parents. They'll get scared and freak out! haha...
I wish my sisters were into stuff like that, then maybe my parents won't be so worried. ha.
I love you.


LOVE!

I love road trips, we usually head to the country in Vermont which is one of our favorite places ever.
Long holiday weekends with no big plans are the best aren't they?

Kelly said...

Road trips are the best : ) I'd want to go to a beach like Virginia Beach or Myrtle Beach, or to a national park like Yellowstone.

StephieB said...

I would be so happy to head off anywhere! Happy holiday weekend to you! Stephie x

ellie's desk said...

Hope its a great destination in mind. Yes, nothing like the open road! Here, with all the flooding..you practically have to go to Des Moines to get to Kansas City.

Hope your 4th was good!

ivy's closet said...

Sweet post. Yes, its that time of year for travel.

lauren lanza osias said...

well these photos make driving around the country look wonderful. we just drove across the country... but we were moving which makes it far less fun. i think i'd road trip to the grand canyon.

I'm in a road trip kind of mood, too--I think it's summer time. Makes me want to hop in the car and leave it all behind!

mapleandvine said...

hoooray i want to go on a road trip!

Neus said...

Completely agree! In Spain we don't do roads trips very often, we use to go only to one place and we don't move too much! But when I do it, I love the feeling!! Enjoy!!

Punctuation Mark said...

Bringing Pretty Back said...

I am SO ready for a roadtrip! I would head up north here in michigan to the U.P. ( upper peninsula) It is beautiful up there! Maybe this fall.
Have a PRETTY day!

About Last Weekend said...

I really fancy a trip across the Palm Springs Desert but I should wait for fall I thin. Would love to go anywhere in that yellow car and striped bag.

Friend omg I miss you! Well I just came back from a road trip - super fun: drove from LA to Vegas then to Utah and Arizona (visiting Zion National Park, The Grand Canyon and Bryce Park along the way), it was just fabulous...

But I would LOVE to do a road trip in Brazil, maybe from Rio de Janeiro to Brasilia - oh that would be fun!

Hugs & kisses from Rio!

Roadtrip conjures up magical images like these but a little anxiety too like what am I going to wear so I'm comfy for all of it?

Annie said...
