Bye bye, charmless Ciudad Real! Try not to cry too hard at losing the biggest piece of charm in your arsenal, aka me. (I kid, Ciudad Real. I may come back in a week. Who knows what the future holds, yadda yadda.)
A peace offering.

Days I’ll be in London: to be determined
Planning this vacation is making me want a vacation. Of course, this is not a vacation, really, if it’s a move. I do want it to be a move. It’s very scary and terrifying but it’s also incredibly exciting and it’s a wonder I haven’t collapsed yet.
This is going to be the most meta sponsored post in the world of sponsored posts, but oh my god, so I agreed to write up a sponsored post for this super lovely holiday agency that markets itself as “the Slow Holiday people,” right? Well, every time I open their website, I become more and more convinced that I need to be one of their clients. If I could pay for it, anyway.
Like, originally I was going to do a quick showcase of their options — I’ve always been a big city sort of traveler, and they mostly have rural hideaways and more athletically inclined options, like walking and cycling holidays, skiing, hiking (okay, I don’t think they have hiking), that sort of thing. But now I’m just browsing the site and being like, oh gosh, I could use a break. Maybe I could even unplug. (No, I couldn’t.)
Samos, an Aegean island. I’ve wanted to check out the little islands around Greece since I saw The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants movie.
Copenhagen city add-on. Now this is far more my speed. Look at all the pictures!
So, yeah, if you’re looking for a vacation in Europe (or elsewhere; they have holidays to India and Morocco and things. I’m just a Europe freak), you should check out Inntravel. It’s not just a delight to browse but the prices are actually fairly reasonable, too, like this 7-day holiday in France from £730. I’m into it.
Now if you’ll excuse me, my empty suitcases are calling my name.
