Where to Spend One Summer Month

As Luke and I tend to do after a silly (and survey-able) debate pops up, we took to our Insta story last Sunday. The question of the hour? If you could travel anywhere in the world during one summer month, where would you go? We received a ton of great suggestions and also heard from a few people that they wanted to hear the results. Drumroll….

YES but alas, our summer is their winter 😦

I went to Bali a few years ago with a girlfriend of mine and Luke has since given me the biggest side eye. There is definitely a possibility for our mutual return.



We were incredibly fortunate to spend a few days in Barcelona last April and Luke and I were on cloud 9. It wasn’t quite enough time to explore the surrounding area but we both promised ourselves we’ll return one day.

Came with a glowing recommendation that included it’s fabulous bikability (word? Okay, just know it’s great for biking/ exploration) and delicious seafood.

As luck/ fate/ true love would have it, we’re heading to Santorini in September! Be still my heart/ appreciation for color.

Tried to convince Luke we should move to Hawaii awhile back. No luck, but I’ll continue to ask every few years.

I’ve heard incredible things about Sri Lanka and based on the images I’ve been finding, holy canolli, it’s Avatar brought to life.

    Have you guys driven your van to these places? Just curious because I’ve just started to convert my van for a europe trip and don’t know how accesible some of these places are!

    Kind regards, Ollie OEPlastering
