Lauren and I are both unapologetic homebodies - there's nothing better than curling up on the couch with a book and a hot cuppa. But we also share a wanderlust that is never satisfied. These contradictory characteristics can sometimes make us downright miserable - always longing to travel when we're home and always wanting to be home when we're traveling.
After studying abroad for a year in college I think we both figured out how to enjoy traveling without missing the comforts of home too much and being at home without constantly wanting to be elsewhere. However, our study abroad experiences were over four years ago and I'm now getting desperate for a real trip. (Visiting home and going to business conferences don't count.)
Unfortunately with rising food costs, $4 gasoline and an incredibly weak dollar, it doesn't look like I'll be traveling anytime soon. These romanticized images from J.Crew's September catalog (taken in Prague) are the closest I'll get to a European vacation in the foreseeable future.
Our only upcoming traveling plans is a camping trip at the end of September. More on that later...
