The Case for the Retreat

When you go on vacation, do you like to hole up in paradise, or spend your time exploring every last corner of a new city?

I’m always torn. I want to be the sort of person who looks at natural beauty and thinks deep, introspective thoughts. But when it comes down to it, I always just end up on the Internet. Paradise is pretty, but I’m not terribly practiced at entertaining myself.

Then I visit a setting like this, and start thinking I need to practice that self-entertainment thing.

At least at this house, bathing is certainly covered…

    Haha, I'm just like you … ! Give me a city any day. And yet … I look at your beautiful photos and I long to be plunked down in that chair overlooking the vineyards … or in the outdoor shower (as long as it's got warm water!). I guess life is ultimately about finding balance — balance between family and work, balance between rest and go-go, and balance between city and nature.

    Great blog! Love your winery off the beaten path … well done! I want to go there! Thanks.

      It's intoxicating, but I agree finding the balance is most important. You
      see a gorgeous destination and start thinking “I could be the kind of person
      who'd live there…” It's tempting!
