Departing from the usual winterlust and hitting you all with some fun in the sun. To be completely honest, even though the beginning of February is generally the time when people start swearing under their breath about shitty winter weather, apart from getting a bit tired of chattery teeth, I’m not at all “sick” of winter. In fact, I still wish I could abscond to a cabin in the snowy woods and just drink warm tea and catch up on that reading list of mine overflowing with all the books I will probably never read because there just isn’t just any damned time. Still, that doesn’t mean I don’t also dream of a holiday in warmer climates, salty water tangling my hair, sand massaging the spaces in between my toes, and tropical sun making itself at home on the slopes of my shoulders. Looks like it’s time to start planning a holiday easter weekend…

      Thanks so much, Asha!

  • Oh man! You are making me miss home! Shame on you ;)
    I grew up on the beach and now I live in the mountains since getting married in March. Both areas are gorgeous and I am blessed to be where I am, but I have been severely missing the salty waves lately!

    But, I also agree with you. I’m not quite sick of winter yet. I love my afternoons filled with hot tea and warm blanket while I blog :)

      Wow you are so lucky to have grown up on the beach – I always wonder for people who have grown up in what is basically paradise or a perpetual vacation if they ever get bored of it? Or if they actually don’t spend that much time on the beach as they would were it to be a vacation. Still it seems like you have traded one beautiful extreme for another. Winter in the mountains is also so beautiful.

  • this all looks so nice! i’m not used to the grey germany yet, although it’s pretty warm-these are a welcome distraction

    • rae

      It is hard to get used to! But eventually you will. Luckily today, though it’s super sunny and getting warmer!

  • 004 just stole a place in my heart. Oh, how I would love to visit a place like that ::hearteyes::
    I am not a fan of winter, however, I would love winter if it was spent in a nice cozy cabin with my favorite hot tea and variety of great books to read. That sounds fantastic. :)

    • rae

      I hope you are able to visit someplace warm soon. And I agree that kind of winter sounds amazing. I dream of doing just that next year :)

  • Kelsey & Kenecha

    Amazing photos!

    • rae

      thanks so much :) all of these photographers are really talented, huh?

  • Love these images!! I usually have a good attitude about winter.. but this year has been especially cold and snowy!

    • rae

      Glad that you enjoyed this selection! And hope that you get some sun and warmth soon!

  • Such lovely snaps! I keep saying I’m not ready for spring or summer yet but maybe this can change my mind… :-)

    • rae

      I think these photos could change anyone’s mind! What paradise!

  • I expect I will be blogging about the excessive heat of Summer and the very long daylight hours in a month or two’s time, as I tend to do every year. Spring and Autumn are my favourite seasons, so at least I’m happy twice a year.

    • rae

      Can’t wait to read about the summer heat. Sorry that you don’t love it as much as spring and autumn though!

  • such beautiful photographs. I love winter too but I love a good getaway in the sun!
