The other day we felt a twinge of the travel bug and since we only had one afternoon, American boy and I hopped in the car and took off to explore a part of our neck of the woods we had not previously set foot on.
A great soundtrack for the car ride is a must, and we listen to everything from Mozart to Andrew Bird to the Chemical brothers, it all depends of the scenery.
Then a light snack or a picnic would have been perfect, but neither of us were prepared so we ended up completely starved at the end of our trip, and decided to pigg-out to delicious Mexican food at this fantastic place.
But before we ended our little road-trip, we simply relaxed in each others company, took small walks here and there and felt the haunting peace of the Utah desert.
I completely fell in love with the subtle colors and the temperate spring wind that made the dry grass say…shhhhhhh.
I take comfort in the fact that when that travel bug bites, no matter where I am in the world, there’s nothing like rediscovering your own back yard even if your heart longs for Paris;)
Now, if Paris is indeed where you want to go and you only have one afternoon, head on over here or here or here, or simply hit up Paris in my search button and see what you find from my trips to the city of lights!
Have a lovely day!
