Capri take me away

Lately I have been day dreaming a lot about over the top luxurious get aways.  There is a part of me that longs to invade the rich play grounds with my pink mane and second hand fashion.  Recently I finished a book not worth mentioning, however it did turn me on to this gorgeous little spot called Capri, Italy.

Paradise right?  Can you imagine this view over breakfast?

The pools are works of art.


 

 Are there any ostentatious destinations you dream about?

Right, let's get ourselves an E-Type Jag, tie on some vintage head scarves and have ourselves a girlie road trip. We could pick up Ilaria on our way!
Capri looks magical, I'd love to eat breakfast overlooking that mountain!
A Maharajah's palace in Rajasthan overlooking a lake with peacocks and monkeys cavorting on the terrace - that would do me!
Love you! xxxxxxxx

I say ditch the guys and make it a girl's trip!

I've always thought Belize would be a beautiful place to visit.

Oh Capri! How amazing. A friend of mine has just been. He nearly had a nervous breakdown over the driving, but apart from that, loved it.

I fancy anywhere, posh or not, but actually I would love to go somewhere with an infinity pool. At the moment I am fantasising about Mexico, Cuba, India and Peru. Probably end up having a week in Skegness (down market English seaside resort). xxxxxx

I've been there :-) but i vote for Positano (and take a day-trip to Capri). I'm totally in love with Positano and because of that village I don't seem to get to ... Oregon and other places.

Capri does look stunning, doesn't it? All those colours, and those pools, just gorgeous.
Oh I could fancy a trip anywhere. On my own would be nice. A girls trip would be better! Macchu Picchu would be lovely. San Fransisco would be fabulous. An African safari, seeing the Taj Mahal or Sydney harbour, going back to New York, whale watching anywhere, dancing in Cuba...
See? I'd go anywhere! xxxx

I did a day trip to Capri while staying on the Amalfi Coast back in 2009... it is just gorgeous! Would love to return there one day and stay over, wait for the day trippers to leave and then hobnob with the glamorous residents in the terrace bars and restaurants...

I'm with Curtise, anywhere that isn't a war zone would do me. I love going on holiday with the kids but I am craving an adult break, myself, with other people, I don't mind. I would love to see America, that must seem so mundane to you but I'd love to visit all the random little towns, Baltimore is a place I've always fancied. Somewhere that produced Ann Tyler and Jon Waters must be doing something right. xx

I spend a large amount of time dreaming of ostentatious locations both local and international! Japan and LA are ones I often dream of. So is New England. And Italy too. Actually most of my dream holidays are influenced by Frank Sinatra songs and he has one about Capri!

I have it in my head I really want to go to Spain and Morocco. I just want to take photos and go to markets and drink strong coffees. I heard somewhere that people are happiest when planning a vacation. I love looking at travel photos and thinking, Let Us Go Traveling, Dear in my best Doris Day lilting sing song voice. Now, I just need some cute pastel luggage.
