It’s really feeling like fall around here. I’m super sad about it because I’ve had such an amazing summer with so many fun weekends and little getaways. I am anxiously counting down the days until our San Francisco girls running weekend at the end of September (31 sleeps away!) and after that we have no other travel plans on the horizon (but we have been doing some brainstorming for the spring!)
Anyways, I was doing some random browsing of the internet the other day and was reminded how fun winter vacations can be too! We have done a few of those and I always enjoy them. And I don’t mean jetting off to a beach in the winter, I mean actually enjoying a snowy vacation! Winter vacations can be just as exciting and fun as summer ones. We also happen to be very lucky and live only a 45-minute drive from Sun Peaks, which was #2 on the list of Canada’s 10 best ski destinations. Eric and I spent our dating anniversary weekend up there a few years ago.
Sorry to bum you all out with a snowy white picture on August 26! I’m just trying to remind myself that even though my least favourite season (winter) is beckoning, I know that there are still lots of fun things we can do. I am actually thinking another Sun Peaks weekend is in order and this time I will book us a self catering accommodation so we can make some of our own meals. Even if you don’t ski or snowboard, I think there’s something romantic about bunking up in a cottage or cabin in the winter and sipping on a glass of wine while the snow falls outside. Even better if there is a hot tub available!
And now I will stop talking about winter and will go back into summer mode as we have a good 2 – 3 months left before the snow hits (hopefully) and Eric and I have our very last camping weekend coming up in two weeks. I’m super pleased with how many times we managed to get out camping this summer!
Where did you go for your last winter getaway?
