Which of these romantic trips would you take?

Just for fun, let's talk about fantasy vacations! Which of these four romantic getaways would you choose, if you could hop on a plane tonight? Above is San Francisco, where you could take a sail underneath the Golden Gate Bridge, hike along the coast and wear lace briefs to bed.
Or you could whisk away to Paris and spend the day strolling down the cobblestone streets and the evening drinking rosé wine along the Seine. At night, you could head to one of these beautiful apartments and slip into a sexy black chemise.
You could fly to the gorgeous seaside village of Positano (we actually went here on our honeymoon!), and swim in the Mediterranean, eat fresh fish with lemon and wear a white robe by the pool.
Or you could venture to Kenya's Giraffe Manor, with 1930's decor and friendly giraffes who will peek into your bedroom window! You could wear a boyfriend sleepshirt to stay cozy in the cool evenings.

Which suits your personality best? Happy update: Eberjey is offering 20% off with the code CUPOFJO through this Sunday.

paris!!! the city of love, of course :) i may have said italy, but since we're going there on our honeymoon, that box is already getting checked off!

a peek of chic

Ash said...

italy or paris! i haven;t been to either but i would LOVE to go... with or without the sexy clothes (;

emilyvannah said...

Italy in a heart beat. I would love to go. And I like the outfit ; ]

Definitely Paris! (But I get to live in S.F. every day :)

Hal said...

i'd go to south africa... my husband and I met there 7 years ago and have been wanting to go back ever since.

A.Co said...

I love love love this post. What a simple and fabulous concept.

Your writing is spot on and so captivating.

I'm not sure what I'd pick!!! Minus the African one, they all sound divine <3

(I love your blog).

Meadow said...

OMG giraffes!!!!!! I want to stay there.

Not sure about going to Africa, but if I did, that's where I'd stay.

Been to Paris. The Italy one is probably the one I'd want to do the most.

Just sent the giraffe link to my boyfriend hehehe.

@anonymous 1:36 pm - what's your problem? She specified a specific hotel which happens to be in a city, you know.

Nicole said...

E) all of the above

Lady Baughman said...

All of them!! How to pick between such wonderful placess?!

Anonymous said...

italy, why do you ask???

Michelle said...

Paris in the winner with San Fran as a very close second.

Kate said...

All of them. I've been to all except Paris, but would love to go there and back to the other 3 again!

Carrie said...

Africa is not a country or even a homogenous region. Though I'm sure that darling sleep shirt can be worn anywhere, I think it's only fair to name Nairobi and/or Kenya as a specific destination.

Gina said...

Positano, hands down. Spent my birthday last fall there in a villa for a week. Instant love. I think I read about your honeymoon here, il San Pietro?

Kate said...

I admit, I felt the same as anonymous about mentioning what country in Africa. The giraffe place is in Kenya, which is a wonderful, beautiful, amazing country. But I would like to have this trip, visit many other countries in Africa, and Italy, San Fran, Paris. Can't go wrong!

Beth said...

Italy! Always wanted to go to Positano- so beautiful in photos.

LC said...

Italy, for sure. It is my dream destination, with Paris being a close second. It is fun to daydream about!

ElsaD said...

Love this post darling! The matching works out SO well! I'd do SF sailing! (BTW, I have a pretty romantic weekend ahead in NYC and we'll be doing some of your NYC dates ideas!!!!) Thanks! xoxo

Jennifer said...

Oh my goodness, Italy!!!

Carla said...

Definitely San Francisco! It's one of my 'places to go'! Plus, it's so far away from Spain and Paris and Italy are closer...
One day I'll go to California for sure!

Lauren said...

I like this post, but I really wish that you (and Giraffe Manor, for that matter) would have referred to that destination as Kenya and not Africa. There are too many Americans who think Africa is a country because our media often refer to the whole continent at once. To link all of the complex cultures, economies, political systems, and peoples together as one entity does them a disservice.

Anonymous said...

I would love to go to Kenya!!!!!!!!!!!! I have been dreaming of a safari for years.

Jay said...

I've been everywhere except Positano --- our African safari was pretty romantic but I think I'm leaning towards Positano. Perhaps it's the unknown that makes it feel more romantic?

Rachel said...

Kenya! San Fran is a close second- but if we are dreaming, I'll dream big.

Jenni said...

Hands down...PARIS!

Ana Simões said...

Italy all the way. I would gladly spend all my summers in Italy, riding a vespa, having pizza a sleeping in old bead&breakfasts, just to wake up in the morning and dive into the blue mediterranean. I still dream of my Rome vacations and remember them as the best I ever had; now I'm planning a road trip all the way down to Naples. It will happen and I will love every single heartbeat of it.

Shelley said...

Italy!!! :)

Joanna Goddard said...

lauren, great point -- just changed in the text. thank you!!!

Shelley said...

africa! never been before and would love to go. plus I love the boyfriend sleepshirt :)

Joanna Goddard said...

cheryl, how fun:) i'd choose paris i think.

Shelley said...

Also, I've been to Paris...and you missed the part about taking baths every night while getting drunk on champagne and eating macarons, then fooling around ;) BEST VACATION EVER.

AmyG said...

Oh definitely San Fran. Good food, great sites - no passport required. Who says romance only happens outside of the U.S.? ;)

Stephanie said...

Shut the front door! Giraffe Manor - without a doubt! How amazing is that place?

Anonymous said...

I live in SF, been to Italy and Kenya, so Paris it is! :)

Tragic Sandwich said...

I've been to Giraffe Manor in Nairobi, but not to stay--at the adjacent Giraffe Centre, you can also go as a visitor and feed giraffes from a platform!

Joanna Goddard said...

ps. lauren, i also emailed the designer to change it, too, coming right up! thanks again, great point xoox

Joanna Goddard said...

shelley, that sounds amazing. :)

Does anyone say romance only happens outside of the U.S?

michaela said...

I'd like to go to Iceland to hike across glaciers, explore ice caves, soak in pale blue hotsprings, and then climb into bed under a fluffy down comforter with my man.

Lisamarie said...

Definately Italy. I think we are going next year!! Fingers crossed!And if I do go, I would definately wear that white robe by the pool

Paige said...

Paris. When it comes to romantic vacations, France is always where I want to be.

Kate said...

I'm going to Italy on my honeymoon, and I've already been to Paris - I have to own up to not enjoying it all that much, I think I went with the wrong person.(NO, not the one I'm marrying!)

Kirsten said...

Definitely Paris.
I've been to Italy, and Kenya and San Fran just can't compare.

Sarah Carlson said...

Giraffes are my favorite animal, so I'd probably have to go with Kenya. However, I'm so indecisive with my desire to travel, so I'd love to go everywhere!

Alyssa said...

I'd vote Italy for the romance and Kenya for the adventure. I've been to Africa and would love to go back. Giraffes are my favorite! so this hotel would be amazing to stay in.

Sarah Jane said...

I'm going to say San Francisco, sailing under the golden gate bridge sounds perfect right now!

Annie said...

So we're not allowed to hit one after another after another? ;)

I'd have to choose Italy. Beach plus Italian style? Sign me up!

Keith, Michelle and Sadie Too said...

Giraffe Manor. Hands Down!

Lauren said...

@Joanna Thanks!!

Gracie said...

I love Paris so much, I like to go every couple of years at least, I went to a wedding in Positano too and loved it but I'll have to choose SF as I have never been and I daydream about going there one day x

Alexa said...

paris or san fran :)

i'm dying to go to san fran. i went to paris the summer i was 20. i vowed that i'd bring a lover when i returned :)

Anonymous said...

I stayed at the Giraffe Manor for a night two summers ago before embarking on a whirlwind safari in Kenya's Masai Mara. Though battling intense jet-lag, the one night there was even more spectacularly breathtaking than I ever could have imagined! (And the family who owns the hotel is just lovely.)

We sat on the patio, drank mimosas, and watched the sun rise high into the Kenyan sky as giraffes teetered by us.

Paris!!! There is nothing more romantic than strolling around that beautiful city and people watching at a cafe with a coffee or glass of wine. LOVE!

Anne said...

Every 'Cup of Jo day' is a good day, but today your posts are Great!! :) Which trip would I choose? All of them! But, as a European I would have to say San Francisco, or Kenya. Now if you'll excuse me, I have some daydreaming to do. ;)

sarah nadine said...

italy or kenya ... what cute outifts!

Alina said...

Kenya! How cool.

Posh Pearl said...

I've lived in San Francisco for many many years. It's a beautiful city indeed. For my fantasy trip, it's a toss up between Paris and Positano. SO ROMANTIC!

Mrs. P Vega said...

I've been lucky enough to visit all these places except Kenya so that would have to be my choice. And I just so happen to love love love boyfriend sleepshirts :)

Jen said...

While the photo in Kenya looks amazing, it would have to be Paris for me - the city of love!

Matthew Hoare said...

Well I am spending a weekend away with my girlfriend to Paris at the end of August...and I can't wait to soak up the culture.

Last time I went was to shoot a music video, so it will be a slightly different (chilled) trip.

lisa said...

Italy for sure!!

Kelly J. R. said...

The giraffe manor would be a dream vacation for sure. Giraffes are my favorite animals! We have a little zoo here in WI where you can buy crackers to feed the giraffes. I love their big purple tongues.

Paris no contest.

Robyn said...

If i could afford it-Giraffe Manor!Ofcourse!

Leah said...

Oh I would definitely pick Kenya! It's funny, I've traveled to several countries in Africa for my Master's program and volunteer work, but I never thought of any of the locales as particularly romantic (although definitely compelling and magical in other ways!). But a Giraffe Manor with 1930s decor? Yes please!! As long as they don't put giraffe on the menu!

Emmy said...

POSITANO!

Jo, I have wanted to go there on my honeymoon ever since I was about 17 and saw Under the Tuscan Sun for the first time. And then saw the hotel Le Sirenuse in Travel + Leisure. It seems like one of the most beautiful places on earth.

Jordan Beaston said...

Paris!!

StephV said...

Omg Giraffe Manor??? My fiance calls me a giraffe (I do have a long neck) and we have them all over our apt! I cannot wait to share that place with him. On another note, haha, we ARE going to start our honeymoon in San Fran! And lucky for me, I'm a Chicago Bears fan, and the day after we arrive, the 49ers are playing the Bears in Monday Night Football...so that would be my pick for a romantic trip :) Love this post!

Colleen said...

Paris, definitely. And that nightgown is beautiful.

Carrie said...

Yay for the Africa to Kenya edit!!

giggling gourmand said...

I'm going to say Giraffe Manor since that's where I'm going for part of my honeymoon in 6 weeks! :)

sarah ann said...

italy to swim in the ocean and relax all afternoon. ohh I want to leave circa 10 minutes ago please.

Cari said...

Italy because I was just talking with my boyfriend about going there. I went a few years ago and spent the whole time wishing I had someone special there with me to share my experiences with.

Ingrid said...

Not having ever gotten to go to any of those places, I would go anywhere! My first choice would be to see Norway though, probably with soft flannel pajamas... Italy would be my pick of those mentioned.

Cassaundra said...

paris, definitely! though italy would be nice!

Brittany Lauren said...

Sometime this Fall, my husband and I are going to wake up and go to the airport and book a vacation for a few days! I'm hoping for a Cali trip :)

Nata said...

Italy. Sun, beautiful food, the water...bliss!

stephanie said...

I've been to Kenya and petted giraffes, and it was one of my favorite adventures ever -- definitely my top choice! xoxo

Lauren Nicole said...

Where's the best place to shop for Eberjey in Manhattan, Joanna?

Anonymous said...

I'm a mix between the sailing and hiking and SF and chillin with '30s decor in Kenya.

Ilse said...

Paris for sure!

Allyn said...

One of the things my husband says he loves about me is that when most people see a picture of an exotic place, they think "how cool!"
I say "let's go!" (I actually usually pull a Liz Lemon and "I want to go to there")
So all of the above, please, for a variety of reasons. We're actually going to San Francisco in September, and I'm SO excited! Maybe I'll have to buy some lace briefs.

They all sound and look wonderful, but I choose Italy! I have always wanted to go!

Anonymous said...

Jo, can you explain your policy on deleting comments? I ask because I was the Anon commenter who made the comment about using "Africa" in an Orientalist way, rather than specifying the city or country. I'm really glad to see that you changed it to be less offensive - thank you! - but can you explain why you delete some comments and not others?

I recognize that this is a personal blog, and you don't have to have comments or anything at all, but once you start advertising, etc. (which I have no problem with), you do become somewhat accountable to readers. So I think it's fair to have some guidelines on which comments will be deleted. To be clear, my comment said nothing hateful and used no offensive language. I think I said it was "whack" to call Kenya "Africa," which doesn't strike me as inappropriate or offensive.

Thanks.

IIIIIIIITALY

Melissa Blake said...

Oh, most definitely Italy!! The food alone would be worth all the jet-lag in the world!

Jennie said...

Italy. Definitely Italy - no question about it unless you're offering Portugal as a replacement.

Kate {Modette} said...

Definitely Paris! After all, it's the city of love right?! x

Italy. Most definitely. I learned how to order pizza in italian. Can't let a skill like that go to waste.

Joanna Goddard said...

anonymous, thanks for your note! i rarely delete comments (as you can see! there are many comments on every post--both good and bad:) and i'm happy to encourage debate and i welcome feedback. i deleted your anonymous comment right after i changed the wording from "africa" to "kenya," since i had answered your request (and was happy you had left it!) so your request had been answered. but if you want, you can repost it and i'll leave it up! i also actually kept another comment from Lauren saying the same thing (and responded to her in the comments, too). anyway, thanks for your note! i might put up a section on the "about me" or something about comments and how that is handled. thank you!!

schroederae said...

In reality, I'm more San Fran, but wish I were Italy. *someday*

Tina aka Beanie said...

Definitely Positano! It is on my list of places to visit..someday. :-)

Anonymous said...

This is such a fun post. I am now dreaming of far away climes/ my answer - Paris!!!!

Kristen said...

hmmmm Kenya is the only place I haven't been to so I would pick that. Although, Paris sure is tempting.

Miss Becca said...

Paris! Of course! And the chemise is so pretty!

That boyfriend sleep shirt is lovely - even better if you are wearing it at the Giraffe Hotel! I have always wanted to go to the Galapagos, but this would be even better.

Andrea said...

Kenya, hands down! The Giraffe Manor looks incredible and I hope I get there some day!

Christine said...

i'm so glad you posted this!! i was going to choose italy till i saw the giraffe manor! i LOVE giraffes and never knew such a place existed! i'm definitely bookmarking it as a place i must visit. do you know of anyone that has stayed there before? =]

I would have gone to S.F. and then to Paris:)) Anyway thnks for inspiration:)

Joanna Goddard said...

lauren nicole, you can find great eberjey pieces at Journelle, which is a beautiful lingerie boutique in union square. you can also order from shopbop (which has free shipping & returns). hope that helps!

Tiffany said...

If all expenses paid than Kenya HANDS DOWN! That truly is a once in a life time experience. I wish I was rich and could spend my time traveling the world.

Trina said...

I'll be predictable and say Paris. :) I live near SF so that wouldn't be much of a honeymoon for me! Italy is lovely too, of course, and Kenya is definitely on my bucket list. But Paris is synonymous with romance.

Anonymous said...

oh my goodness, this layout needs some editorial reworking. I'm sure it was not intentional, but 'which trip would you like to take -- San Francisco or to this model's underwear?" Yikes!

Maggie said...

Mais, Paris! Bien sur!:) Love simple black chemise too!

Anon 3:46 said...

Jo, thanks for getting back to me - I appreciate your being forthright. I think it's important to keep all comments up that don't violate a clear policy (for example, I think most would agree that comments with racial epithets or threats or that are otherwise hateful can be struck without notice), and to that end, it'd be great to see my initial comment back up! It just seems more honest to have a clear record in this community.

I think a delineated comment policy would be a great idea. Best wishes.

Artaud said...

Positano! Always wanted to go and if you handed me tickets right now, I'd fetch my lovely husband and go without hesitation!

Anonymous said...

Joanna,
I've been to all these places, and it's a toss-up...; all so wonderful in different ways.
Perhaps La Sirenuse in Positano - the most spectacular dining scene(and beautiful hotel/walks/scenery) I've ever been in - brings the nod...?

Cassidy Short said...

Paris or Kenya! Ahh traveling is the best..

I don't know how my comment went anonymous, but that was me I swear I wasn't trying to break the rules :)!!!!

Oh I love eberjey!! I would totally go to Paris. I'm going next fall. It's the first thing on my bucket list!

Italy!

We went to Little Corn Island in Nicaragua for our honeymoon just a couple weeks ago. We got to swim in the sea and eat fish, but only for a couple of days before the tropical rains shut us down. It'd be nice to try those things again, plus I didn't have that lovely robe. That alone practically merits us a do-over :)

Kristian said...

Ha! My Boy and I are actually going to San Francisco for a romantic getaway this coming Sunday! We had originally planned on Paris for this summer, but found a cheaper alternative...

Italy...since the last time we were in Paris, we brought our 18mthold...and the last time we were in Italy, we were young and just getting to know each other...I would like to recapture that feeling!!!!

ITALY - I've never been out of the U.S. except Canada. Italy would be my pick between the three - paris, itay or kenya.

San Fran. Chill, relaxed—not too over the top. I think that’s way sexier for an impromptu trip.

Lauren said...

Positano is next on my list. It looks amazing!

Margaret said...

Choose... please I choose never to put myself in a situation where I have to choose.....So I will be taking all of the trips...one right after another!

I have never been to Positano. It looks amazing and some day I would love to go there. Actually, I would actually be thrilled to visit any of these places!

Tiffany said...

I've been obsessing over Italy lately, so that would be my no 1 choice. If I could go to France, I'd prefer Lyon to Paris, oddly. and Kenya sounds fascinating!

jonahliza said...

i choose paris. i've never been. not yet, anyways. have a fun weekend!

Alyssa said...

Either Italy or Kenya! They both sound like amazing places.

Etheline said...

Italy. Hands down<3.

Brandie Fountain said...

Oh my, how to choose? San Fran is one of my favorite cities and Italy and Paris are definitely on my must-see list but Kenya just seems so exotic and romantic that that would have to be my pick.

L Schelvan said...

Italy is on my must-do list. The robe you chose totally fits in with my fantasy of the Italian coast. I can hear the sea chattering across the pebble beaches now...

L Schelvan said...

And, by the way, your Italian honeymoon is exactly what I've pictured in above - referenced fantasy. You've inspired me to start saving!

Anonymous said...

With all this heat in New York, I've been fantasizing about the Pacific Northwest. Portland or Seattle. Or Both and everything between.

Italy! I was there when I was 18 but going back with my hubby would be amazing! We went to Paris together when I was in early pregnancy and it was lovely, def would go back there too!

Sarah said...

Well, I've been to all except Kenya, but honestly Kenya doesn't seem like my kinda place. I'd probably go to Paris. It's the place that's had the longest gap between visits for me out of the other 3. Especially since I live in the Bay area lol.

megan soh said...

so cute! definitely paris for me!

jojo said...

Kenya! Giraffe Manor sounds like an amazing romantic adventure!

Rachel said...

Is it strange I've been to Kenya but NOT France or Italy?(I live in SF) I would definitely pick Paris at the moment, but East Africa is one of my favorite places (yes, you readers out there I am combining them, just like sometimes we say "Europe"). Tanzania was my favorite place hands down, would LOVE to return someday and do another trip to Zanzibar!

Amy P said...

San Francisco. Or Kenya. Tough call, believe it or not. LOVE their lingerie; have yet to convince myself to spend the money, though!

I'm lucky to have been to San Francisco and Paris, but never to Italy, so definitely there. My husband is going to a wedding in Sorrento this September, but it's the same weekend I start a new job and I'll miss out. Completely gutted!

Ohhhh ... there are aspects to all of them, but it would either be Italy or San Francisco.

Or a combination of both please:)

OOhhh Positano! Lovely blue seas, lots of sun and swimming, fresh white robe and sheets. Perfect!

e-orbin said...

You've listed the four places I long to travel to most in the world (add Athens and I'm done for). I went back and forth over these as if you actually offered them to me, haha!!!

Maybe I'll show my husband for help with the final (not real) decision and then go buy some lingerie!

Laura Trevey said...

Been to San Fran and Paris - but would go back in a heart beat.

Italy is on my bucket list, and hoping to get there sooner than later!!

Erin M. Evans said...

oh they all sound wonderful....as soon as i saw italy on the list i thought that would be my choice. ive always wanted to go there and swim in the m. sea, but having giraffe's peek in your window sounds so neat!!!

Shan said...

Giraffe Manor!? Where do you find such interesting things??

PS Do you subscribe to Gilt's Jetsetter? I love to look at all the exotic/off-beat vacation packages and daydream. Plus, my boyfriend and I actually got a great deal on a beautiful bed & breakfast in Maine once :)

Shawna Greenway - Brush Dance said...

Since I already live in the SF Bay Area, I would choose Italy or Paris. Ok, Paris! I went there for a week when I was 15 with my high school art club and looking back, I know I didn't appreciate the city at all. I would love to go back with just my husband. The kids can stay home with grandma!

Anonymous said...

Italy. For sure.

i really, really wanna go to san fran! might still book it for memorial day. it just seems so relaxed and full of good food, great art and awesome scenery. could discover i've always been a west coast girl and never come back!

Cassandra Marie said...

Italy for sure! I've been dying to go back ever since we visited Rome several years ago!

katrina said...

I was looking at these and thinking how wonderful they'd all be, when I realized I've actually been to them all! Just not in sexy lingerie! haha ( except France, and Italy where we honeymooned) Kenya is amazing in a totally different way, as is San Fran.
I'd love to go back to Italy and see more of it - only got to spend a weekend there.

Thank you for reminding me of some of the amazing places I've been!

xxooxx

Positano definitely. I have pinned quite a few pictures with that travel goal in mid. I would love the entire coast I am sure. The robe is lovely. Thanks for the fun post!

logan said...

All the trips are wonderful. And I love how they are paired with the perfect lingerie. Right now I am very much missing my friends in SF so I think I'd choose a trip back that way if I could pack up and go this very second.

Anonymous said...

WOW, i'd consider myself lucky with anyone of these trips. But for me it'd be between paris and italy. Paris has forever been a dream... but italy in the summer - dreamy

jen said...

ITALY! I've always wanted to go. I was headed there on a backpacking trip so many years ago, but on the way there, I tore a ligament in my ankle, and I never made it. :( The silver lining is that I will (hopefully) someday get to got there with my husband, which will be so much more romantic!

ITALY!! Loved my trip to Positano in college (while studying for a semester in Rome), and I cannot wait to visit that romantic city with my hubby.

Paris would be the second choice.

Those all sound amazing!

I just returned from a super romantic yet adventurous trip to the southern coast of Turkey along the Aegean Sea. I highly recommend it - most Americans don't go so all of the European tourists get to enjoy the beautiful blues of the Aegean Sea and the freshest seafood.

If we're talking fantasy vacations it's DEFINITELY Kenya! It would be filled with all KINDS of new experiences, and I love that.

can I not take them all? If I had to choose one it'd always be Italy for me... or London but I already live here!

Hands down Positano, Italy. Paris is wonderful, but I've never been to Italy and my husband and I are dying to go. Does it still count as romantic to bring our 10 month old?

Venice, Italy is one of my favorite cities in the world. I just went this past weekend and I would drop everything to go to any city in Italy any time! Paris is also lovely and I go once a year.
