One of the biggest events in college is actually something that doesn’t even take place at college. What am I talking about? Spring Break, of course. It seems like the majority of students head due South for some warm, sunny weather during their week-long break…since SB is usually in March, its a little bit necessary to head far South in order to find some warm weather!

I’ve only been somewhere “tropical” on Spring Break one time, on an Eastern Caribbean cruise…and it was amazing. What I’d give to go back right now….ah. I honesty don’t know what’s stopping me from going on a trip every year…if you get enough people together, its really inexpensive! (Maybe not a cruise, necessarily…but a hotel room on the FL coast isn’t too much!). Well, I figured out what it is this year that’s keeping me from traveling somewhere warm: my Spring Break is a week earlier than pretty much every other college or law school in the country…and all my friends are still in school. That’s no fun!
To keep my sanity (because, Lord knows law school makes you crazy)…I’m headed down South to Wilmington for a long weekend. Sure, the temperature is about the same as it is here in Coastal VA, but there’s just something about that place that always makes me happy. I’ve already decided I’m going to live there one day…and even picked out the beach house on Wrightsville Beach that I intend to buy…haha.
In an ideal world (where my friends and I were (a) rich and (b) had the same Spring break), I would choose to go to any of these places, in no particular order:
1. St. Thomas-I’ve been here once, and I’d go back in a heartbeat. LOVED every minute of it…perfect beaches, temperatures, gorgeous island!
|Picture I took of Magen’s Bay…doesn’t even do it justice.|
2. Puerto Rico-Been here too…but I was on a cruise and only had a few hours to explore. There’s so much culture here. Not to mention a rainforest, amazing Sangria, and great nightlife! Oh yeah, and pretty beaches.
3. Punta Canta, Dominican Republic-Never been here, but everyone I know who’s been to the DR has loved it!
4. Antigua-Always wanted to go here…don’t worry, I will one day 😉
Clearly I want to go somewhere tropical and nowhere else. Of all the places I could go on Spring Break, I’d rather choose sun, warm weather, and beaches. Its only a week, and I just want to: relax, get a tan, have fun, party, and take pretty pictures. Obviously.
Where are you going on Spring Break? Where would you LIKE to go on Spring Break if there were no limitations?
