I was reading through the Fotbalfrue’s recap of her year and this one picture just sent me off to dreamland.  I am recreating this moment over the summer – delicious cold salads, fresh seafood, tapas, a glass of Moscato and a poolside looking out over the ocean.  Followed of course by running around on the beach, going for a swim, sunbathing, and more delicious food and wine again later.  Aside from the fact that I can’t indulge in any of that while I’m pregnant, I would love to just go now when it’s freezing here.

So instead why not go on a little dream vacation instead?  Pinterest and Tripadvisor are always good for some help with that!  We’ll go on a two part journey, one destination for the day and another for the evening.  Today I’d pick the Four Seasons Resort in Koh Samui, Thailand.  During a perfect resort day I want there to be a variety of things to do and places to soak up the sun, and the Four Seasons has plenty of gorgeous spots to lounge.  Since its a dream vacation, that means waking up with the dawn to watch it rise from the private balcony.

Of course, the first order of real business would have to be breakfast, here amongst the palm trees with sweeping ocean views which I love. < >

They also have a gorgeous spot for some relaxing morning yoga, and a spa including massages on the beach under the shade of a palm grove.  Heaven.

I’d probably spend the most time close to the gorgeous white sand beach though.  The rest of the day is for swimming and sunning!

I know exactly where I would spend the evening too, at the Capella Pedregal Resort in Cabo San Lucas.   I just came across this picture and fell in love…

 Can you imagine just coming out from a relaxing warm shower, with that delicious scrubbed feeling you get after washing off a long day in the sun and walking out to this?

After admiring the view from the balcony and then the pool area I imagine it would be a short stroll to the restaurant, El Farallon, which from the looks of it would be an unforgettable way to view the sunset and spend a long leisurely evening meal laughing over drinks.

How fun would this be with a few couples together?  I absolutely love the lanterns and twinkle lights everywhere, plus the mountains to one side and then the sea?  Amazing.

I love the idea of eating here with a group, but if I were going here with just my sweetheart I would have to go for this – an incredible view, toes in the sand, seafood feast on the beach.  That is pure romance right there.

If the resort weren’t so remote, ending the night dancing would be perfection, but there isn’t a club at the resort.  Still, walking along the property and enjoying its beauty by night, especially along the beach, sounds perfect too.

Looking around there website they also have beachside fires at night, I wonder if they have marshmallows?

Ending the night, I’d have to head back to hot tubs and those amazing pools.  Look at the view from the inside of it… spectacular.

I hope you enjoyed today’s two dream destinations, and maybe get inspired to visit someplace warm to get out of this polar freeze we’re in.

  1. Hi would you mind sharing which blog platform
    you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and
    Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for
    something completely unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  2. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own weblog and was
    curious what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty
    penny? I’m not very internet smart so I’m not 100% sure.

    Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Kudos
