My Fantasy Vacation #mfrwauthor

architecture-Apartment-French Quarter-New Orleans-La-3333131_1920pixabayMy fantasy vacation would be to spend a month in New Orleans’ French Quarter to write. I’d love to rent an apartment overlooking the Quarter and watch people go about their day to day activities. Whenever I visit, I marvel at the French and Spanish architecture and daydream about moving into whatever gorgeous building with lovely hanging ferns, flowers, a bistro table set on the balcony and a ‘for rent’ sign on the downstairs door.

A cruise down the Mississippi on riverboat would be grand. Imagine me as a dark and Creole Queen riverboat-French Quarter-New Orleans-La-1542020_1280pixabaymysterious southern lady of leisure dressed in a magnificent hoop-skirted gown carrying a ruffled parasol standing on an upper deck soaking up the atmosphere and flirting with a dangerous riverboat gambler. He would kiss my wrist and invite me to watch him play cards as his lucky charm. Sigh. I could write about that.

I can imagine all kind of scenarios to brainstorm about involving tale of espionage, secret lovers meeting in the open to throw off suspicion, or sightseeing tourists.

That’s my fantasy vacation. What’s yours? Tell me about them in the comments.  Happy Holidays!

  1. Ha ha. My fantasy vacation does not involve writing. I’m at my computer every single day, so when I do go on vacation, I don’t want to have to work. In May, my husband and I did go to New Orleans for a week. It’s quite the jumpin’ place. The activity level reminds me of Las Vegas.

    I’ve done quite a bit of traveling all over the world. My fantasy vacation would be to experience a super high end luxury hotel in some foreign destination.The kind of accommodations that go for like $10,000 a night. So, that is in the realm of fantasy, because that will never happen.
