I have a cold, my office is cold, my apartment is cold and my feet are never warm…welcome to Canada in the winter time and I’m so over it…yup over it! I was actually working on another post for today but then after getting in my cold car in -20 degree (Farenheit) weather for what seems like the millionth time in a row, I realized I need a pick me up if I am to get thru another moment of this weather.
So I started dreaming of tropical vacations and drinking Mai Tai’s on a beach somewhere. I then put on Songza and the “Tropical Beach Vacation” station and began to flip thru pictures of places that are warm and sunny on the internet and within minutes I found my mood shifting and I had a smile on my face again. Imagine that!
Now I want to share that smile with you friends so here is what I found. Maybe it will help you get out of the winter blues or just put a smile on your face like sandy beaches and warm tropical breezes tend to do.
First up the soundtrack for this post….Harry Belafonte singing “Matilda”. Hit play and scan the images I have shared (and if you are not working, make yourself that tropical drink too). Enjoy!
Ahhh Hawaii..YES PLEASE!
Well this looks like fun, I’m in for learning how to surf.
Adorable Bikini! But if she falls in that water, you can kiss that beautiful flower goodbye.
Well this looks like a fun party in Jamaica!
Now it’s time for the heat of Fiji.
Do you see me in one of those huts with my tiki drink? I do!
My dream destination since I was a little girl playing with Barbie’s was Tahiti. Don’t know why I chose this place, I don’t even know if I even knew what it looked like what I chose this as Barbie’s honeymoon location with Ken. BUT this island has stayed in my mind for so long and I look forward to the day when I do finally get to visit.
I have the perfect skirt for Mexico!
Glorious tropical fruit, yummy.
Antigua, Trinidad and Barbados would all be amazing at this exact moment. Checking flight openings as we speak….
Dominican Republic a favorite inexpensive travel destination for Canadians.
And last but not least another favorite of Canadians (and I think possibly soon Americans)..CUBA! My husband and I love Cuba (especially Havana) and have been multiple times.
The music is just fantastic in Cuba. In Havana my husband and I spent our whole time dancing and drinking but more dancing than drinking was had.
Also if you still have not had enough of these fantastic photos then you can check out a blog post I did on Vintage Acapulco. It has some delightful tropical images as well.
Okay I’m off to go put my feet in hot water now…BRRR!
Stay warm friends! Or stay cool depending on where you live.
