i have been thinking a lot about vacation. like a real vacation. not a business trip. not a conference. not a family holiday trip. a straight up nothing to do but vacation vacation. it’s been a little too long. while my favorite places to go almost always include europe and exploring, i’ve been dreaming of a beach (most recently this pink beach) lately. sitting, listening, reading. nothing to do and no agenda.

i have no beach vacation planned, but i do like to plan all kinds of trips, even if only for my one day some day wish list. the other day i happened upon chateau de la resle, a luxury retreat in burgundy, france and i thought it looked pretty amazing and like something i needed to share. france is always a place i want to visit. i’ve only been once for a few days and it seems like that was forever ago. i’ve never been to a chateau and hadn’t envisioned a modern one, but i’m liking what i see.
