#FINALLYFRIDAY: Vacay Daydream Edition

#FINALLYFRIDAY is a feature on PEARL+SALT designated to celebrate that the weekend is near and it’s officially time to boogie. Each week, I’ll be sharing a set of my favorite GIFs with captions that pertain to the straight-up mess wonder that is the human experience.


How I feel when I’m trying to leave the house ASAP but can’t find my phone:

finding my phone

When my roommate uses “all the hot guys” as an argument for me to go to Trader Joe’s with her:


How I feel when I read social media posts dismissing global warming threats  because “it’s cold outside”:

shut my eyez

When a major airline company offers me a credit card and two free round-trip flights:
this is a trap

When my better sense leads me to reject it and it becomes clear I’m not going on vacation anytime soon:


My dreams of sandy beaches and drinkin’ water straight out of a coconut persist!

Do you have any vacations planned soon? As I mentioned here, my BFFL is embarking on a three-month teaching program in one of the most beautiful countries in the world and my jealousy is like a toasty ember keeping me warm through the cold New York City nights.

Another friend is headed to Mejico and invited me to join her but Mejico has a lot going on lately. I realize one state is not like the other, but it’s still a lot to think about. I traveled abroad for the first time in four years this past October and I’d forgotten how much there is to it. Nonetheless, I still want to make an effort to expand beyond North American horizons, preferably to a place where I only need to bring a swimsuit and shades.

If you could were handed a free round-trip flight anywhere in the world this weekend, what would your top travel destination be?
