It has been a chilly, cold week here in Seattle, so the mood of this video fits perfectly. The "Isle of Awe Land" is a beautifully shot and edited video on Ireland. If it didn't look so damn cold, I would be booking a flight ASAP.

Located two and a half hours outside of Seattle, Plain isn't a destination I ever thought would make my "wanderlust" list...but there's something to be said about a little R&R in the country. When I was looking through Brian's photos, I knew I had to share a few of them so that you all could see how beautiful a town like Plain is.
As a bonus, Leavenworth (a little Bavarian mountain town) is located only 20 minutes away.
What do you think? Could you spend a weekend in Plain?
We spent a beautiful weekend over in Eastern Washington in a town called Plain. Whether or not the town was named Plain for its lack of amusements or wide open countryside is still up for debate. Regardless, you don't need much to amuse you in Plain other than some friends, a river, and two little kids.
What did you all do over the weekend!?
Located on the coast of northern Spain, the small town of Getaria is an idyllic Basque getaway. This small but gorgeous fishing village is also home to world renowned wine (i'm sold) and beaches! It can't get any better than that! When I lived in the south of Spain, the farthest north I traveled was to Barcelona, but I am kicking myself for not making it to Basque Country. On the upside, I now know that when I get to the Basque Country, I will most certainly stay at the Hotel Iturreggi, in Getaria.
I could imagine many nights wandering though the cobblestone streets of Getaria...
And many days soaking up the sun and swimming in the Bay of Biscay.
Have you ever been to the Basque Country or Getaria?
