Vacation Dreaming - 2017 Travel

View from my parents' house on Hood Canal.

As of this Wednesday, Exam season (for me at least!) is officially over!  But despite the ridiculous heaps of work until then, I can't help but daydream about 2017's vacation plans.  Whatever it takes to motivate me, right?

In July, I am off to my parents' house on Hood Canal.  Here it will be more relaxation and fun in the sun--I fully intend to spend most days floating around on my unicorn while sipping Coronas with lime.  Or going on adventures with my dog (OK, he is technically my parents' dog, but he and I are buds. So yes, he is my dog, too). Evenings will be spent chowing down on Mexican food or driving into my hometown to catch up with my friends and cousins there.

Zuma Beach, Malibu, CA.

And then, to round off a relaxing summer, it's down to Los Angeles to hang with my bestie, Kim.  I can't wait to get even some sun and city life in before heading back to Norway for the new school year.  One place I have to go back to is Zuma beach.  I love the relaxed vibe in Malibu; it contrasts so starkly with the hustle and bustle of LA, all while still being close to the action (although the locals will be quick to correct me and say that Malibu is, in fact, deep in the country).

But it's not just the beach I'm looking forward to: LA is home to some of the best Mexican food I have ever eaten, fun nightlife, and the best shopping deals. In fact, I almost never buy bags, sunglasses, or other accessories in Norway anymore.  I find them for a much better price in LA, and much more unique pieces.  Norwegian shops have this weird tendency to all stock the same things, so the more unique items I can find, the better!

And so concludes my summer travel plans!  What are your plans for summer vacation?
