Leaving on a jet plane

Harbour View Hills home, California

I stumbled upon the most amazing blog find yesterday (literally — I found it through StumbleUpon!). It was perfect timing, because as I’ve mentioned before, this time of year I always get such an itch to take a vacation. I think it’s because you spend so many years getting spring break when you’re in school, that come mid-March, it’s like your brain is wired to expect it. Yes, even after being out of college for years!

Anyway, the blog Adelto will do either one of two things: sate your craving for a getaway, or make you pine for one even more (I’m actually going to lay odds on the latter). Whatever your preference is in a dream getaway, this blog has probably featured it. It posts gorgeous images of properties from all over the world — vacation and regular homes a like. Most if not all the vacation getaways will cost you a pretty penny, but daydreaming about visiting them is free. So dream on!

Where would you want to go? Here were some potential destinations I picked out:

Castel Monastero, Italy

Niyama Retreat, Maldives

Mosi House, South Africa

Cavo Tagoo Hotel, Mykonos, Greece

Villa, Phuket, Thailand

La Marche Villa, Italy

The Desert House, Desert Hot Springs

    I just made an audible “sigh” looking at the Mykonos destination. I would die to be sitting in those chairs overlooking the water – LOVELY!!!

    I am TOTALLY wired to expect a vacation around this time! I will have to live vicariously through other peoples travels for the time being

    Jetsetter and SniqueAway do the same thing to me daily. And yes, that explains my fatigue! I’m ready for a spring break that doesn’t happen in the working world! Haha.

    Wow! Makes me want to go on a vacation. But am I crazy or do these photos look like they are computer generated? I’ll have to go check out the site!

    I just found out we’re going to France in November for my best friend’s wedding! I’m so giddy!!

  15. 3.22.12

    We’re going to the Greek Islands for our honeymoon and ALL of our family members are trying to talk us out of it because of their financial crisis and frequent strikes in Athens. The photo of Mykonos just reminded me to tell them all to stuff it. In a nice bridal-ly way though:)
