Remember the other day when I was getting all excited about making summer plans? I've been daydreaming about traveling like crazy! So what better timing to go down memory lane with Al Fresco Holidays' "Wish I Was There" photo contest.
They want to see a photo of a travel memory that brings you happiness. If you want to join, just share a photo of the destination you wish you were right now and tag it #AFWishIWasThere.
Here is my "I Wish I Was There" travel photo:
Because I just can't help myself. I almost always wish I was in Tuscany. This photo was from one of our first hikes at Barbialla Nuova, so when I look at it I get not only a feeling of wishing to be in that place, but also a feeling of wishing to be at that time. It was the beginning of a fresh start, with so much time and freedom (and wine and mozzarella) in our future. I remember starting in disbelief at that horizon and sunset and realizing that in Tuscany, time slows down. The sun seemed to be taking it's sweet time sinking below the hill, and I didn't mind one bit. I wanted to soak in every last warm moment of it before slowly retreating to our home and slowly sipping Chianti as I slowly cooked lentils and fresh arugula and tomatoes from the garden.
