I’m not the type of person who plans trips to the middle of nowhere or who travels without a detailed itinerary. I typically go somewhere big and exciting, packing my days full of everything I can think of and heading home completely exhausted. That’s my kind of vacation.
But what do you do when your life gets so hectic that you’re already exhausted before you ever leave home? How about a trip to a cabin in the middle of nowhere.
Last week my boyfriend and I packed up with no plans at all and headed to Helen, Georgia, with our friends Brendan and Stacy and their 3-year-old son, Max.
Our cabin was completely amazing. Three floors of wonderfulness with huge rooms, comfy beds, two living rooms, a huge kitchen, a fire pit and best of all, a hot tub out on the deck. Maybe a few days of seclusion wouldn’t be so bad after all.
The first night we had a weenie roast, followed by s’mores of course - another thing I can mark off my 101 List (#73). Then we ended the evening in the hot tub. The next day we went out to the little German-looking village in Helen, Georgia, where we ate lunch at a cafe on the river, took a carriage ride and got some ice cream.
Then we took a quick hike to Anna Ruby Falls. What a gorgeous trail!
The next day Tanner and I headed to Atlanta for a couple days where we saw a performance of Peter Pan, did some shopping and hit up IKEA before heading home. All in all, it was a great trip.
Looks like I can mark another thing off my 101 List (#61 - take a roadtrip to somewhere new).
Time to get back to my hectic life. Luckily I have another vacation planned in the very near future.
