The [wine] country road {Listography 2011}.

Each Wednesday, Emily, @ Notorious MLE, Danielle, @ Elleinad Spir, and myself are working our way through the lists of Listography 2011.

List #33.

List where your perfect road trip would take you.

Well, this list came at a perfect time.  I'm almost caught up, and ready to share some vacation pics with you... because this annual summer road trip truly is our perfect destination.

a place where...

...the scenery is so gorgeous, that we don't mind the early morning excursion to the farmer's market.
...where we can watch the kids play on our way out, and drive just a couple of miles to our favorite roadside burger joint.
...where we can have little adventures, such as trying oysters for the first time...
 ...or visiting an organic farm (with a neurotic shadow-chasing dog)...
 ... or even milking a cow!
...were we can enjoy our farm-fresh treats that very night, or the morning after.     

...where we don't need fancy amusement parks or the latest & greatest game system to keep us entertained. 
...just a couple of kites, and a light summer breeze...
...a few (or so) vineyards...

... and a pair of good air-mattresses.

Where would your perfect road trip lead you?

  1. What a fun road trip! Wine, food, family, being unplugged, doing new things... sounds good to me.

  2. Love seeing pictures from your trip :) Glad you're back!

  3. What lovely photos! And amazing trip! And is that Mariebelle hot chocolate I see? MMMMMM! My fave!
    Talking about travel is like asking me to pick my favorite ice cream....I can't choose just one! But possibly one I would really love is to Yellowstone National Park. It's on my list anyway.

  4. Looks like you had an awesome trip! Yay!!!

  5. Looks like you had so much fun!! I love all the photos!

  6. I love it!! So good to see you back and you can tell you guys had a great time. Lucky!

    Girl I'd love to road trip it to Big Sur, but we did a massive one up from SoCal to Alberta then over to BC and back down through Oregon before we almost lost out sh*t and had to hit the main drag to get home. After awhile the open road was just a lit-tle too much. HAHAHA!


  7. This is too perfect. I will have to get your road trip itinerary when we plan a trip back up north! SO glad you are back :)
