Friday Five: Vacation Thoughts

Over at RevGalBlogPals, Sally says.... It is a holiday weekend here in the UK, and the weather forecast for much of the country is not good!!! But we can still dream and so with that in mind I bring you this Friday Five.

1. Getting ready for summer, do you use the gradual tanning moisturisers, or are you happy to show your winter skin to the world? Neither, actually. In fact, I didn't even own capri pants until the week before the Big Event cruise. It is pretty much impossible for me to get a tan, so I just try to protect, protect, protect. Which often means I hide, hide, hide.

2.Beach, mountains or chilling by the pool, what/ where is your favourite getaway? Late last summer it was the Rocky Mountains, and the summer before that it was Alaska... so I think it's safe to say you won't often find me at the beach.

3.Are you a summer lover or does the long break become wearing? What long break? The hardest thing for me to get used to after college was not having a significant change of scenery for a few months of every year... after 9 months in our newlywed apartment, my husband and I got this unexplainable urge to start packing. We stuck it out until we were ready for a house, though.

4.Active holidays; hiking swimming sailing, or lazy days? It depends. This long weekend I plan to be mostly lazy.

5.Now to the important subject of food, if you are abroad do you try the local cuisine, or do you prefer to play it safe? I definitely try to go local. But chain restaurants are getting more and more pervasive, so it takes more effort to do so these days.
