Wanderlust Wednesday: Places I’d Rather Be

Wanderlust Wednesday is a series on the blog where we discuss travel blunders, tips, and my insatiable wanderlust. So pack your bags and let’s get wandering.

Travel, Wanderlust

Hump Day – the day far enough removed from Monday to be over the sadness of having to return to work after some time off, but too far away from Friday to be excited about getting out of bed in the morning. So for this hump day, I’m doing Wanderlust Wednesday a little bit different by linking up with Kathy from Vodka and Soda to confess all the places I would rather be today. After all, what kind of travel addict would I be if I wasn’t constantly traveling in my mind.


San Antonio Japanese Tea Garden, San Antonio Sunken Garden garden

Enjoying some self reflection and quiet time in the Japanese Tea Garden.

Harry Potter, London England

On the train to Hogwarts. Magic isn’t going to learn itself!

Trafalgar Square London, National Gallery, LondonThings to do in London England

Wandering the streets of London. I left my heart in that city years ago.

Scotland, Waterfall

Hiking through Scotland. Just look at the waterfall!

Places I would rather be, The Beach

Sipping a piña colada on the beach. It’s 5 o’clock somewhere.

Gaudi architecture in Barcelona

Enjoying the quirky architecture in Barcelona.

Concert, Honda civic tour, Kelly clarkson, Adam Levine, Music

Front row at a concert making googly eyes at Adam Levine. I mean, just look at him!

What do you have to confess today? And where would you rather be?

  • Holy shit. ADAM LEVINE?! I confess…I would totally lick his face.

  • kathy @ vodka and soda

    wait, is that YOUR pic you took of adam levine at one of his concerts?? YOU WERE THAT CLOSE??? i’m so jealous because he’s so delicious.

    i would rather be anywhere on a beach. hell, i’d rather be anywhere there’s sun and some warmth! i’m not asking for much, just any place where the temp is above 10C.

    thanks for linking up!

    • Haha! Yes, I had the chance to be at the front of the pit at his concert in Austin. And he is such an attention whore who LOVES the camera. Not that I’m complaining. I loved that he would look directly into our cameras as he was dancing and singing. 😉

  • You could say almost anything and I would so ooh I want to go there too but Barcelona (Spain really) is on the top of the list. A beach is always nice too!!!

    • Barcelona just has such an interesting culture and amazing architecture! 😀

  • I’m in Sweden at the moment, so am pretty content BUT I would always rather be on a train to Hogwarts 😉

  • Kelli

    I’d rather be anyplace warm and sunny where there’s a beach. I’m ready for some vitamin D.

    • I’m so looking forward to the long summer days! Now, if only we still had summers off like we did when we were students.

  • Lisa

    Hey Lynsey! I totally get the Adam thing.. I mean ‘My God’! lolol!! <33


    • Haha! Oh, yea! 😉 Adam is definitely a place many people would love to be.

  • Rachel

    I’d rather be anywhere where it is not 30 degrees and raining/snowing. I cannot wait till the spring and summer weather finally make their appearance here in MA!

    • Ouch! I would definitely be ready for the spring also! I’m really looking forward to those warm summer nights. 😀

  • Take me to a hot beach immediately!

    • I’d love to be laying on the beach with a nice cold drink in my hand! 🙂

  • I just knew that Kathy would be jealous of that Adam photo!!! And I’d rather be somewhere, anywhere, warm & sunny. Like a beach. But also my favorite vacation spot has been Japan ever since I visited 2x many years ago. Just so clean and orderly and the architecture and food and cutesy prouducts, I love.

    • Haha! Well, Adam is a treasure. 😉 LOL. I’d love to visit Japan! It’s on my bucket list, so hopefully I can travel around Asia someday. 😀

  • Take me to the beach!! Now!!!! Oh my! I want to be somewhere warm and relaxing. Away from grading papers, making dinner and cleaning. I’d gladly come back; I love my life, but today I’ll take the getaway thank you!

    • Oh, I’m with you on dinner and cleaning! Some nights I just want to phone it all in and forget about it. LOL. Plus, we all need a good getaway every now and again.

  • I love London so much! Barcelona is definitely on my wish list for sure!

    • I talk about London so much that I think I drive Troy crazy. LOL. I hope you get to go to Barcelona soon! 😀

  • Amanda

    So jealous of your Platform 9 3/4 experience!!!!

    • It was a good distraction while we were waiting for our train. LOL 😀

  • Kate

    Japanese Tea Garden! Yes please! What time shall I meet you there? 😉

    • Oh, anytime works for me! 😀 It is a very beautiful place to visit.

  • oh my gosh, that pic of barcelona is so neat! i daydream about the coasts of italy…and all the yummy food!

    • The coasts of Italy would be amazing to see. I hope to travel around there someday. 🙂

  • I would like to go to platform 9 and 3/4.

  • Sign me up, and I’ll go with you!! It’s been far too long since our last real vacation.

  • Oh Yes I have a long wanderlust list of places I would love to be right now too. Thank you for linking up with us for Travel Tuesday!

  • Jordan Holley

    I would rather be anywhere but here, as well! Let’s just ditch this place and go somewhere on a whim. We can survive.

    • I’m in!!! I’d love to just be able to spend my life traveling the world. 😀

  • oh my goodness, I feel you so bad on all of these (but especially Platform 9 3/4. Our letters just got lost in the mail, right?)
