Travel-themed week

It's fun to daydream about travel—especially during the winter months—so I'd love to post all about travel this week. The big question is: If you could beam yourself anywhere right now, where would it be? The photo above is from the south of France, and for ages I've also really wanted to go to Portland, which seems like an amazing place. What about you?

P.S. Past travel weeks.

We spend every August in Cap Ferrat, it's one of my favourites in the whole world! That is a great photo :)

Miami Beach - it's so cold and grey in London (UK) at the moment, I'm seriously craving sunshine and warmth

TOMORROW I'm going on vacation with my family to Antigua. My mom had too many glasses (or just the right amount) of chardonnay at a silent auction and surprised the family with a trip! It's been years since I've taken a warm weather getaway with my family and combined with Chicago's epic winter, I'm beyond excited!!

This is my first time taking a trip during this time of year. Other vacations have typically been in summer or fall. I'm thinking this whole winter slump break is the key.

A small coastal town in Mexico without tourists and with plenty of fish tacos and cold beer.

cay said...

If I'm being beamed and not having to endure a long flight with a toddler, I'd go to Thailand. But if I had to endure a flight, we'd hop down to the Caribbean. The key being: sunny with a gorgeous beach.

NextStopIs said...

We have been dreaming of a trip to Napa Valley - to enjoy the beautiful views and wine country.

I'd beam myself to Iceland - I went last may and I fell. in. love.

AVY said...

I wouldn't mind spening some time in Italy. Fashion, food and beautiful men, all you really need in life.

I would want to travel to a tropical beach where I could sit and sip a margarita and listen to the ocean roar! Oh I wish I had red shoes and the clicking thing worked like in Oz...

Lauren said...

I just got back from a week in California, so I'm pretty happy to be home right now. At some point, though, I'd like to visit, China, New Zealand or Sweden!

Aylin said...

I wish to be in Jamaica right now!!

Angry Asian said...

montana - to feel small when i look up at the big sky
belgium - for the architecture and history
morocco - for the food and history and romance

annaofgreengable said...

Anywhere in Italy, preferably sipping wine in a restaurant at sunset. Or Virgin Gorda, sipping wine on the beach at sunset

Noémie said...

These past months, I've been dreaming mostly about Croatia. The thought of the red tiles roof of dubrovnik and of the turquoise water of the Adriatic sea makes me whisper.

Julia said...

Before I even read where that picture was from, my first thought was southern France! Been to Nice twice and it is still my favorite city.

laurenfoode.com said...

Italy is on the agenda for the end of the year! You would love, love, love Portland. It is such an amazing city.

Myfanwy Hood said...

Anywhere in Italy! Am hoping for a few weeks there sometime this year :)

Jay said...

We're pretty lucky to travel a lot being that we live overseas. Lately, I can't get my mind of Santorini - we booked a trip there in the next couple of months but it seems ages away!

Mallory said...

Denmark! Anywhere in Denmark. With warm boots.

Lauren {Stylized Existence} said...

Portland IS an awesome place - and there are so many rad places to rent on Air bnb - you've got to go!!!

Karina said...

I wish I could be in Hawaii! We went this time last year and I so wish we were going again!

Melody Rowell said...

I'm hoping my next stop is a beach in Spain... but it may not be for another year or two!

Nayla Ghassibeh said...

baliiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii. and lately, while browsing all those scandinavian interior design websites, definitely norway and denmark. South Africa too. Oh and a whole month in south america would be great :) peru, argentina....

macaca grava-por-cima said...

funny... I've just posted pictures of the last weekend, when I had a little escape to Brussels (and Amsterdam), for a friend's birthday (I made her a surprise). I experienced a "snowing moment" for the very first time!

Ms. Magpie said...

Vancouver - I'd love to be skiing right now!

macaca grava-por-cima said...

I've just arrived yesterday from the cold and magical winter of Belgium and The Netherlands, but since traveling is almost like breathing I would jump on a plane right now and I would most likely go to New York (the place that I visited where I most want to return!)

Camille Chouinard said...

One of my dream travels is Iceland, but since I'm so tired of winter right now (I'm from Montreal), I'd rather pick some place warm and sunny - maybe Morocco or Turkey?

Robyn said...

Usually my answer would be fort portal in Uganda..but right now I'm in Seville ( it is fiesta time!)and can't think of a reason to be any where else x

drew elizabeth said...

On an island in the Caribbean! Preferably sipping a pina colada :)

June Lemon said...

Yeiii! I love travel fantasies... Right now.. i'd like to travel to Thailand. To the beach... Wish i was there! (sigh!)

Stacy Schoonmaker said...

I'd have to say Bali. I have an extreme urge to surf in warm water.

Kiss of Lemon said...

I agree with you on that...both of those places seem like they would be fantastic! I have recently had the urge to travel back to Tokyo [it's pretty amazing there]. Maybe I should just travel around and stop at all of these...wouldn't that be nice! :)

I'm living in the south of France (Marseille) and I would LOVE to go to... New York!!! So we could swap! And I also daydream about Stockholm :)

Leslie @ And Then The Doorbell Rang said...

I would beam myself to the Puget Sound. You should definitely look up the Inn at Langley on Widbey Island!

It's been so gray and gross here in Germany lately that I've been reliving my New Year's trip to Tuscany... At least there was blue sky there! :)

katie [the bright life] said...

I'd love to go to Portland, too--that's home for me! Looking forward to your posts this week. Xo, Katie

Samantha said...

I live in Portland! And yes it is cool, but you wouldn't want to come now during the winter. Gray, rain and 40s. Come in July, August or September, then you will see some sunshine. :)

I just got home yesterday from a trip to Kauai and Maui with my husband. It was a work trip/ vacation and it was amazing.

unBELLElivable said...

I wan to be where my someone special is---Norway. :'(

Maddy from MPDaily said...

This weekend my boyfriend and I booked a trip to Paris! I am so excited and cannot stop dreaming about it...and all the cheese!

Lynden Laundry said...

My best friend just came back from the south of France and. Now I'm dying to go too! Beautiful!

thischarmingday said...

Ha! I'm in Portland and at this time of year we are all LEAVING! I'd love to be in Arizona right now--dry out, hike and watch some baseball that's queueing up at Spring Training. If you do decide to come to Portland, might I suggest after July 4th (when summer actually starts) or in October--the fall here is BEAUTIFUL!

Katie said...

Lately it's all about Europe, especially France, because I've never been! We want to have a baby soon but feel like I have to make to Europe first! I'd go anywhere, Italy, France, Greece, Spain! I want to see it all!

I also dream about a US road trip someday....

I love travel week!

marija said...

Currently I am daydreaming about travel to Greece. :)

Abby said...

Istanbul, Turkey. I went there last summer for the second time, and even though it was super hot, I'd give anything to be back in that fabulous weather. Plus the food, the sights...

CM said...

I lived in sun-drenched Montpellier in the South of France all of last year. It feels like a dream! Xx

J.Elizabeth said...

I have always wanted to go to portland too and I decided to sign up for the half marathon in Willamette Valley this labor day. Running and wine country! Can't wait!!

Sharla said...

I've been having actual dreams about vacation - that's how deep into the winter funk I've sunken!! Although we'll be visiting NYC for my birthday this fall I am craving a warm beach right now!

Ivana said...

Paris, Paris, Paris, and again, Paris! There's no place in the world I'd rather be right now! I watched Midnight in Paris yesterday, and now I'm feeling nostalgic about the years I spent in this wonderful and magical city...

Jenna Faude said...

Portland is such a great place to visit. If you go I'd definitely recommend the Friendly Bike Guest House! Such a great location and has room to store bikes in the basement. Everyone is so friendly, as the name claims!

leah ruth said...

every winter my husband an i day dream of making our way up the coastal highway in california - stopping in little bed and breakfasts and exploring all day... right now i would go for anywhere warm! i have never been one for beach-y places, but any of those island cruises sound lovely right now!

littlekitchie said...

I'm visiting Paris this summer for the first time, and I can't wait!

Anna said...

Wow, this place look beautiful! I think, I would probably go to Sicily, that`s beautiful, or the Amalfi coast, if I wanted to stay in Europe. Otherwise I might choose New York perhaps.

HRenaissance said...

What is it about Portland really? I've always wanted to go and have these random dreams about the city. I even mentally planned a trip there last night.

But if I could dream myself away to some place right now, it would be to Johanessburg, South Africa or Senegal.

Meadow said...

Just got back from Arizona and Vegas (I live in cold, dark, snowy Canada)... and needless to say it's one crappy Monday morning!!! Sigh. I'd rather be pretty much anywhere but here!!

Sip-n-Snap said...

Zurich, Swizerland. Anyday!

GIULIA said...

wow, I'd love to go back to Iceland, I want to see it in the winter..
Then I'd like to go back to London, i was there three weeks ago, Rome, Paris, or New York.
And, If I could, India, South Africa or Cuba.
Haha, take me anywhere!

CP and KW said...

that photo is beautiful! i would love to be travelling somewhere warm right now.. greece?

NYC (from Milan, Italy)!

Kit said...

i want to go to Dushambe, Tajikistan. fantastic city.

ashley said...

I actually really want to go to Michigan, believe it or not. We are planning to move there and I just want to get there and start exploring. Do you have any suggestions? I'd love to know about the entire state and about the Detroit area.

Lisa Michelle said...

You absolutely must come to Portland! Although I agree with the other comments. This time of year is not ideal. September or October are our best months. If you come, I'll share my babysitters with you!

I'm always longing to be on the Amalfi Coast but am currently daydreaming about upcoming trips to Sun Valley (ski trip with the girls) and Walla Walla (wine tasting with the hubs).

joana said...

for a second there i thought you were going to say portugal! which is a place you should definitely visit, it's wonderful :)

Moonlight said...

I wouldn't mind as long as it was somewhere warm and walk-able.
We don't usually get long or very cold winters in Cyprus, but this one seems to have been particularly intense.

Beam me back to French Polynesia - we spent 16 glorious days there for our honeymoon and it was out of this world.

I'm headed off to Chilean Patagonia and Easter island next week. Cannot wait! My favorite place I've traveled before has got to be the Swiss alps, such nice people, food and beautiful scenery. And I agree, Portland is fab...you would adore it.

thekittchen.com said...

As a former Mainer, I must say that I get annoyed when people just say Portland and don't specify a state! 90% of the time people are talking about Oregon, but Portland Maine is so lovely. Southern Maine would be a great place for a family vacation (in the summer).

I have been wanting to stay in a treehouse hotel in Belize. I think I will be going within the next few months!

Briel said...

I just went to Portland at the end of January. It was great! If you do go you should plan on going to Multnomah Falls and while you are there get some hot chocolate at the lodge next to the gift shop. Yum. :) Also make sure you go to Screen Door for dinner. DELICIOUS fried chicken and also pulled pork sandwiches!! We went twice over the four nights we were there. :)

fiendbyname said...

I'd head straight to the Andes in Peru to go hiking or to the Rockies in Montana to sleep under the stars. I feel so cooped up and inactive during the winter.

Alexa said...

i am aching to go to the isle of skye and iceland :)

Laura Lariviere said...

I am heading to Portland this year. I make a list every year for places I want to go. This year heading to San Francisco, Portland, Seattle, Vancouver and Whitehorse, Yukon (finally, for a friends wedding).
But I have a long list, that includes most of the world.

New Zealand.

Jessica said...

I am so jazzed to be doing an extended trip to Granada, Spain (one of my favorite spots in the world!) this summer, to start my Master's program. I can't wait for the heat, the people, the language, the food! I also really miss Portland; I lived there and visit whenever I can.

l i n d s a y said...

Ya, I wonder about Portland too! Especially after watching Portlandia, lol. I am dying for warmth, I would either be with my family in Laguna Beach or I would beam myself to Thailand or Australia to lay in the sun and swim in the ocean....ah that would be great right now. Even with my flabby postpartum body LOL.

Anne said...

I currently live in West Africa and am DYING to go back to the states, preferably some place cool. 5 more months. I can make it!!

Jocelyn said...

Currently living in the South of France for my study abroad! I wouldn't want to be anywhere but here :)

Nata said...

My husband and I live in Portland...and yes, come after July 4th. The end of the summer is magical here. Be sure to eat at Screen Door for brunch or dinner, Gruner, Ox or Clyde Common for dinners that are very Portland- local, seasonal and so delicious. And go explore Hoyt Arboretum, where you can hike/walk through such beautifully varying foliage and take in gorgeous views. And...it's right by the rose garden and zoo!

I want to be in Palm Springs right now!

dswross said...

There are so many places I'd love to go but because I am dying for some warm weather, sun and an agenda of nothing but sunbathing and eating, I'd beam myself to Jamaica. Montego Bay is one of my favorite places.

Carley Bortolin said...

Portland was by far my most favourite holiday I've ever had. My husband and I went last September and stayed at the Ace Hotel for 5 nights. We ate at Pok Pok, Le Pidgeon, Beast, Olympic Provisions, Lardo, Podnah's BBQ, and Salt & Straw ice cream. We couldn't get over how friendly everyone was, and how inexpensive everything was. Coming from Vancouver B.C., we were shocked at the type of meals you could get for the cost of an average chain restaurant meal back home (We're talking James Beard award winning places!) We also loved the food carts!!! The Big Egg was awesome for breakfast, and the Sugar Cube was great for an after lunch pick me up. Don't miss the Saturday Farmer's Market at the university downtown (best farmers market we've ever been to). Coffee at Stumptown is a must, though there are a million independent coffee shop that were incredible - Public Commons being our fav. I work for an independent book store, so Powell's was a religious experience. We also loved Mississippi Ave. for nerding out over vintage shops and food stuffs. We can't wait to go back this September, it will definitely be our go to holiday spot.

Dani said...

I have my eyes set on back east right now.

mhunter said...

I'm 37.5 weeks pregnant and live in Michigan. I would love to beam myself to a warm beach and float in the ocean. And then I would love to beam myself back home when the baby decides to make its appearance :)

Sarah said...

I'd beam myself to London, England. It's a city I'd love and where my sweetheart lives and I'd give pretty much anything to be in his arms right now ;) Other than that, I've always wanted to visit Barcelona so if I could beam me AND the boy there, that would be a great option ;)

eKim said...

We just came back from Seattle and Portland a couple weeks ago (1st time visiting) and we LOVED Portland! Although I will have to say coming from a very diverse city (I live in San Francisco) Portland isn't as diverse. But after this trip we started watching Portlandia and it summed up the vibe of the city pretty well. :)

The hubs and I have a London and Paris trip booked in May. This is our first international trip together and these two cities are the first ones we'd like to explore together. We are pretty much your average Anglophiles and I have had a mild obsession with England since I was a little girl. Not to mention England is where all my favorite music growing up is from. Hubs have been learning French for a couple years now so we are excited to put those lessons to use. Although we may get rained on a lot I can't wait to see Paris in the springtime!

Ashley Sweet said...

For exploring: Valencia, Spain. I'm a sucker for all Spanish food/wine. And it would be just in time for the Las Fallas festival in March!

For relaxing: California wine country

Schenck cath said...

travels planned include Barcelona in April/May, and NYC next fall with my 8-year-old daughter, I can't wait.

My husband dreams of Iceland, while I would love to go to Scotland and when both my kids are teens, JAPAN!! My 11-year -old son wants to return to NYC and go to CHINA!

Scout and Rice said...

We have been talking more and more about going back to visit family in Australia around October, when the weather will be beautiful.
But then we consider the 30-odd hours of travel time with a two year old and wonder if a resort holiday in Mexico might not be nicer! :)

Ivana said...

I would like to go to England! London, Bath, Brighton, St Yves.... One day, one day :-)...

Ivana from Croatia

The Slow Pace said...

I love travelling, so I'm always daydreaming about nice places to go. If I could go anywhere right now, it would be some place in the Mediterranean coast. Warm nights, amazing food and nice people. I don't have none of those things in Germany!!! ;)

Mia Stizzo said...

three years ago i spent a few days of my italian vacation meeting and visiting with my family in rural southern italy. i dream myself back there all the time! also - portland is awesome and cheap! you should totally go there! best place to eat and thrift, hands down.

Norma James said...

My husband and I are going to Portland next month, we're really looking forward to it. However, if could beam myself anywhere right now, it would be a toss up between, the Amalfi Coast, Croatia or Montenegro.

Emily said...

I think I'd go to the UK, I've never been and I'm dying to go one day!

Christy said...

Bora Bora :)

Amy P said...

Nearby (Pacific Northwest): Portland, Vancouver Island
Far away: Germany, Netherlands, Sweden

But I'm due with my second in the beginning of April, so I think any travel plans are on hold for a while :)

Karen said...

Do you mean Portland, Oregon or Portland, Maine? Hopefully Portland, Oregon, since that's where I'm from! If you're here during the summer (everyone is right about that being the right season), there are a lot of fun cultural things to check out, like the weird hippies openly selling the world's fanciest bongs and henna tattoos at Saturday Market, or our weird Voodoo Donut shop where every donut is given a weirdly vulgar (and delicious) name. And there are beautiful nature scenes to take in (Multnomah falls is wonderful for hiking). But of course, Portland is a MUST if you're a foodie...pok pok, Wafu, Porque No, the Woodsman Tavern, Salt and Straw.... the list goes on and on. You're guaranteed to find authentic, tasty, unique food for an extremely reasonable price. (Also check out the food carts on SE hawthorne! Lavendar honey milkshake, yumm.) And while you're at it, do some shopping--no sales tax!

For more information on portland food, I would recommend searching "portland" in the blog "The Everywhereist." Even though the author of that blog isn't from portland and just writes about her various (and abundant) travel escapades, I (even as a native porltander) use her for good Portland food reviews.

Natalie said...

Come to Portland! We'd be lucky to have you. For me, I'm dreaming of a trip to Vietnam.

Caitlin said...

I've been daydreaming about Amsterdam or the British Isles. I've always got a dream vacation planned with my imaginary funds :)

Iceland! I simply can't stop thinking abour going there. For years i used to choose warm and overenergetic places (Latin America, Mediterranean), and now im dying to get to Iceland, and explore its desolate spaces! (and buy these awesome Icelandic sweaters!)

But in real life, Im going to NYC for the first time in my life, and that is pretty exciting too!!!

Nina Leung said...

Sydney, Australia. It looks so amazing and beautiful and warm. Also, my favorite stylist, Sibella Court is from there and I would love to go to her shop, The Society Inc.

Benedicte said...

I'd like to go to Australia or Argentina ; the opposite hemisphere. By the way, St Jean Cap ferrat is under the snow today !

amles said...

On a bike tour through a wine region in France. Maybe Alsace or Burgundy! It would balance out all those extra wine and cheese calories :)

Lil T said...

Portland, OR and Oregon in general is absolutely beautiful. I think you guys would love it. If you go, go in June, July or August - the driest months ;) And make time to spend a few days along the Oregon coast.

Chelsea said...

Africa (South Africa, Rwanda, Tanzania, the Congo) is at the top of my long wanderlust list, but that's a tough one, given that I'm a very pale blonde woman and have been told by a couple of South Africans that I dare not go there without major protection. Sad, I think.

And Sumatra, Indonesia, to visit a coffee plantation and hang out with some of the world's last orangutans. But I may actually be there in a few weeks!

A lot of places I would beam myself to I've already been and am dying to return to: Portugal, Turkey, Costa Rica, Laos.

I'm excited for travel week! Honestly, I wouldn't transport myself anywhere right now - we recently returned home from a six month road trip visiting all 50 US states and it feels good to be home! Although, I guess I do get a little escape every day as we blog about our trip. It's fun to relive the memories :) I'd love for you to check out our travel stories over at www.tagabonds.com!

Lindsey Warner said...

Come to Portland! I would be happy to show you around!

Reina said...

NEW YORK CITY! FRANCE! NEW ZEALAND! HONG KONG!

And actually, I really want to go to Seattle, cause that's my future city. I love it there.

BUDAPEST! PRAGUE! SOUTH AFRICA! PORTUGAL! ITALY ENGLAND!

........ and the list in all caps goes on......

Christina D said...

Morocco or Istanbul, Turkey. I've always wanted to visit those two places.

emmlewis said...

Right now? Anywhere with a bit of sun and sand - this Montreal winter is never ending! Seriously though, I had a real case of the winter blues and am longing for a vacation :)

Katelyn Baker said...

I would jet to Iceland in a heartbeat.

leilani. said...

come to portland! .. in the summer! unless you want to truly experience portland than come in the spring, with some hunter rain boots. im planning my honeymoon to costa rica right now!!

Lesley Miller said...

We just booked a three night trip to New Orleans this April as a babymoon trip. I've never been to the south and can't wait! I'm dreaming of dresses and beignets and jazz! :)

I adore Portland.

Jade Sheldon said...

Been dreaming about Iceland lately. And Portland, as in Portland, Oregon!? It's where I grew up and where my husband and I currently live. We love it so. If you are in need of any food recommendations, you know who to ask... http://endlesslyenraptured.com/

If i could I'd be drinking cappuccinos across La Fontana di Trevi just about...now
But my dream is to move to moody England and live there till the end of time

From Greece with love...

Jenny McL said...

I would love to go to alaska in summer. Or any where by the sea with mountains and forrests. Or Colonsay a teeny tiny island off the west coast of Scotland. I was only there for 24hours last year but its beautiful.

tuscanpoo said...

would love a trip to bangkok or bali. heard the beaches are scenic.

Caroline said...

I would give anything to be in Valencia, Spain right now! My family used to live there, and this time of year was always my favourite because of Las Fallas, Valencia's regional festival. The first day was this past Sunday, and I was half contemplating jumping on a plane to escape this dreary Toronto winter!

I'm really looking forward to your posts this week :)

Stephanie Mc said...

As all the other posters said, don't come to Portland now, but September/October is amazing.

We're friends of Paul and Lucy's and have a 3 and 2 year old, so let us know if you're coming to town and we'd be happy to get together and show you some of the secret sauce.

k. darter said...

Joanna, agreed. Come visit Portland in August/September/October. I swear, I get so depressed in these winter months, but the lovely months in Portland make it SO WORTH IT. Beer, mountains, oceans, perfect temperature, extremely walkable, ENDLESS PRETTY VIEWS. GOD I love this city :)

Sabaa said...

At the moment I would beam myself in Paris.

Mirela said...

If you mean Portland, OR please do come between July and September - these are the glorious summer times we all live for during the remaining 9 months of the year. :) And I'd be THRILLED to read about your time here as I'm sure you'll find beautiful places, delicious food and super friendly people.
I'm originally from Lisbon, Portugal and I recommend that city to anyone in the world! :)

Brad Adams said...

I would travel to Trondheim, Norway - great place for cyclists. It's great to tour through the city because they have rental bikes, and well respected trails all around let you enjoy the charming Nordic scenery.

I would like to say that this blog really convinced me, you give me best information! Thanks, very good post.
