Birthdays aren’t a big deal to me, but since moving to Denmark, I’ve set a tradition of not being in Denmark on my birthday. My birthday is coming up sooner than I’d like (it’s a big one!) and it’s time to start planning this year’s getaway.
My top three contenders at the moment are London, Bellagio, and Tuscany. Scroll down for the poll and tell me where you’d go!
I love being in London! We already go there quite a bit, and it’s like going home. I long for English products more than American products and I’ve even got a favorite restaurant, favorite shops, and a favorite hotel!
If I choose London, there’s the added bonus of a possible new sparkly thing from London’s best jeweller, and another Louis Vuitton bag. Hey… you only turn “30” once ;-)
Last year, Robert whisked me away to Bellagio, proposed to me overlooking Lake Como, and arranged a cooking class on my birthday. That’s going to be pretty hard to beat, so I won’t even try.
Bellagio is the most romantic place I’ve ever been. So many times, I’ve relived the memories of our days wandering around the old cobblestone streets, sipping wine against a spectacular view, and just quietly being together in one of the most beautiful places on earth. This is the stuff I daydream about!
A day or two in Florence followed by a few days at a cozy agriturismo in the Chianti region could be just the thing to scratch that itch. Maybe Robert could even take one of those lame photos of me holding up the tower of Pisa!
Where would you go? Vote in the poll and tell me in the comments. This poll will be open until March 13.
P.S. I have no idea how to fix the wonky alignment on the voting buttons, but since there are only four choices, I’m sure you can follow ;-)
