Seduced by Sun and Sand

Seduced by Sun and Sand

I grew up a snow bunny in the mountains of New England (Vermont, specifically) but the older I get the more I discover if there is a loyalty fence when it comes to favorite places – I might be switching sides. 2011 brought with it trips to Barbados, the Bahamas, Mexico and Jamaica. Already this year, I’ve worshipped the sun on the beaches of Costa Rica and Puerto Rico.

What’s the draw?


Do I actually need to spell it out …

I certainly loved my week in snowy Park City, Utah for the Sundance Film Festival. It felt a bit like going home. Last year in Seefeld in Tirol was a welcome “blast from the past”. It was so much like my favorite ski town in Vermont, Stowe. I’ll always enjoy the mountains in any season and I do appreciate the clear, deep breaths that don’t always come easy yet seem to be a medicine the ocean can’t duplicate.

Still — I think I’ve been seduced by sun, sand and tropical locales! I’m a city girl who calls NYC home these days but – I’m one who escapes to a place where all I need is a bikini when I really want peace.
Can you relate? What’s your favorite place to visit?

My trips to all of these locations, but Puerto Rico, were complimentary. However, the views and opinions expressed here are my own. That is why when I did have some free time to take an actual vacation this month, I headed for the sand and sun once more.
