Those Lazy-Hazy-Crazy Days of Summer [Blog Update]


As I'm looking out of the window, the hot summer sun is reflected in the windows and cars. The mornings are already very warm, and as the day goes on, the day gets even hotter. Thoughts of beaches and the sea are still distant, but as summer vacations are approaching even they are crossing my mind. 

Days of Summer

Another thing keeping me busy is work, and that is until mid-July, when we go on break. A first short trip has already been planned for that first weekend when we have off. But more on that when the time comes. So what is it about summer that makes the heart grow fonder? A song comes to mind...



Summer Vacation Plans

Keeping in mind the previous bit about the massive workload right now, I haven't even found time to think about this years summer vacation. Last year I went to Sibenik and posted a massive 9-part Travel Series, that to this date is still the most viewed and read travel series on this blog. Check it out under the link above if you haven't seen it.


This year will be calmer and I think we will only go on a short 4 day trip to the beach. I have ordered some new photo gear, which will probably arrive until the end of July, so I'm looking forward to that as well. It's a new lens, I wanted to buy for a long time, but needed to save up so that I could get it. A full review will be posted once I get it.

Back to Work

Even though work is crazy, there will be lots of new posts, travel and lifestyle related. Have you seen my latest Chocolate Donuts Recipe? You should definitely try them. Have you made any plans for your summer vacation? How is summer treating you?

  6. summer is flying by too quickly...school has been out since may 22nd and we don't have to go back to school until august 12th...it's a longer summer break this year because they changed up the schedule and we ended up getting jipped last summer...we ended up purchasing a new home so that is keeping me busy, packing, going through things..we don't move until the end of july but i'm busy, busy! so no summer vacation plans but we do have a pool now so we'll spend the end of our summer at our new pool!

    1. Oh wow, your summer will be busy no doubt! Good luck with the new house. Try to take it easy from time to time and don't let summer pass you by. It's nice to stop for a moment sometimes and smell the air :)

  12. Your summer plans sound good, especially the new lens. I would look forward to the review :)

    Things have been pretty hot in India for months now, and currently I am happy with the monsoon which have calmed things down. I am off to exploring Goa in the monsoons soon...that's the only plan :)

  16. I don't have any huge summer plans and I think I'll be taking shorter weekend trips. I'm planning on a Sedona weekend that will be great for photography and possibly the Grand Canyon. I haven't been there in a while. The first of September I go to California with my friends for an extra long weekend and at the end of September back to Santa Fe New Mexico with other friends. I'd love to go to Seattle even for just one day but the air fare is outrageously expensive for some reason. Lot's of things to think about.
    I can't wait to hear where you end up going.

  17. NAT! Someone asked me if I could pick just one artist on my desert island CD, and I picked him.
