Sunbeams, strolls and swan lake

by bethanybump

Some days I would like to wake up, pack a bag and hit the road. I would ignore the clock, the road signs and the rush of traffic. I would take an exit, park my car and wander around. Here are some places I want to adventure to, through and by (OK, most of these require a plane ride rather than a road trip):

A small street in Annecy, France, in late afternoon. Open windows, cobblestone streets, and a cute European waiting around the corner on his Vespa.

I count 13 wishes waiting to be made.

Would love a stroll by Castle Laubach in Hesse, Germany, with my camera in hand. Swan lake is on the castle grounds, built in the 13th Century.
