I've always been highly suggestible. Put me in front of a candy display, and I'll crave M&M's. Show me a photo of Twiggy, and I'll phone the salon for a pixie cut. Along those lines, I'm generally quite happy with the Los Angeles weather. Yet take a heat wave like the one we're having currently, add a few photos of faraway places, and you'll find me dreaming of a breezy, distant retreat.
When that mood hits as it has now, I play one of my favorite games and ask myself, "Pop Quiz: If you could be transported in the world this very minute minute, where would it be?" Right now my answer lies on a beach along the Meditteranean coast. It involves Turkish towels and straw tote bags, striped umbrellas above my head and sun-baked sand between my toes. I told you I was suggestible!
In lieu of actually hopping a plane, I envisioned what I'd pack for my journey—and the souvenirs I'd pick up along the way! But what I really want to know is your answer to my pop quiz. So tell me. You have ten days to spend traipsing (or lounging) anywhere on earth. What's your destination?
