Take Me Away Recap - June 2017

Wow, how did the 4th of July already come and go?  We just returned from spending a few days at the beach with family - so nice to get away!  And always great to come home too!  My dog, Rosie was happy to return from the frightening cracks of fireworks she had to endure these past couple of days!  Poor thing.

And now that we have flipped the calendar to July, it's almost time to share your latest travel posts!  The next Take Me Away Link Party starts tomorrow evening at 7:00 p.m. EST.  In the meantime, let's enjoy the fabulous trips you linked up last month!

Carole from the blog, From My Carolina Home shared her Quick Trip to Chattanooga.

Beautiful views, a lovely restaurant and wow, what a bookstore!  She really packed in a ton for a "quick trip!"

You can always count on Carole to share some gorgeous places and this time she also shared some gorgeous cars!

My husband and 13 year old son would be bouncing off the walls with excitement to attend such an event!  What a fun day!

And off to Paris we go with Colleen from 50 Days of No Grey...
Paris in Springtime - 50 Days of No Grey

Colleen shared her lovely photos and helpful tips from her exciting week in Paris.  A wonderful place to make lasting memories with friends!

How about some more beautiful views with Pam from Everyday Living...

Learn about the meaning of "swag" and explore this enchanting mountain inn in the Great Smoky Mountains!

And because I know you will want to see more, be sure to continue on to Part 2 of this delightful mountain hideaway vacation!

Now you will know why Pam would want to keep this place a secret!  Just give me a glass of wine so I can sit and relax by that fireplace!

Let's visit a place that will make you contemplate your own lifestyle.   Join Susan from Our French Oasis on her pursuit of a simpler life in France...

Not only did I devour every beautiful word but found myself actually feeling peaceful after reading her post.  I think I want to move to France...

And being in France would also put me closer to amazing Italy!  Ms Toody Goo Shoes takes us away on a stunning tour of Naples and Pompeii!

The ruins, the views, the history...what's not to love?!!  Her photos will make you feel like you traveled along with her!

And if that area wasn't beautiful enough, she continues on to the spectacular Almalfi Coast town of Sorrento...

You won't believe what a gorgeous cliff-side hotel she stayed in - oh those views!  Grab a glass of Prosecco and take it all in!

And for the finale, join Ms Toody on a white knuckle ride to the panoramic cliff-side town of Positano!

Positano - A Travel Journal of Italy Part 3

During her post she says, "no words" and that was exactly what I was thinking.  "No words" can describe the beauty of this region of the Almalfi Coast.  Do yourself a favor and stop by her blog for some breathtaking photos and exciting Italian adventures!  

Thank you to everyone who stops by each month!  Whether you are here to link up your own posts or to read others, we always enjoy having you!

Please remember to stop by 
on this Friday, July 7th
for the next Take Me Away Link Party!

  1. Shelley, thanks so much for the recap...looking forward to see what everyone will share !

  2. A great recap, Shelley. I want to move to France, too. I have one problem though - I took 6 years of French - all in French 1. My teacher said that I don't have an ear for it. Hope you're having a fabulous Summer.
