I am dreaming a dreamy dream
























Photos pillaged from the internet.

Is it possible that one day in the not-too-distant future I might have my OWN dreamy-dream photos to post here?

Is that Morocco? I need an exotic vacation, too.

Maybe someday we'll get there. (Although I think I want to go to Istanbul first!)

Thanks for sharing the pics. I bet you'll have your own soon enough!

Tere, Turkey is fabulous!! If you go, go to Cappadocia too. And yes, it's Morocco. Dream dream dream :-)

I especially like the Chefchaouen pics! And guess what?? After living a couple hours away from Morocco for the past year, it looks like we might finally make it there the last weekend in October. When we do I'll send you pics.

I would say it's MORE than possible. It's very likely. :) Gorgeous pictures!!

The first picture here + your comment on Twitter about Jónsi = Let's Colour Project. The fantastic video:

I swear you've hijacked my own dreams. ;-)

Laini Taylor said...

Amber, meet you there :-)

Steph, oh my GOD! How did I not know about that project? I have idly thought of that -- bringing color to neighborhoods -- and it makes me happy beyond happy that somebody is DOING IT. Now: let's plan a trip to paint with them somewhere, oh please oh please :-) (And I knew the Jonsi thing would make you happy! It was an accident that he came on after something else on my itunes, newly loaded by Jim, and I thought, "Hm, what's THIS??? :-)

Andalucy: Chefchaouen! Ah, I don't know if we'll make it there on this trip -- it might be too much to bite off. But I am dying to see it, it looks so fabulous. Lucky you, being so close!

Hey, I think Clementine's pictures are pretty fun...

Very possible! See in Norway, Marrakesh is on the 'charter list'. You can get there from about 100 dollars one way ticket, and you can go for a long weekend. But still I haven't gotten round to it. Must go! Must see Vienna and Rome and Berlin and Santorini, too. How come I've travelled across the states but haven't seen these places? Hmm.

Ooh, the colors, the COLORS! No wonder you're dreaming of Morocco :-)

Wow...just blown away by the prettiness of it.

Dreams have a way of coming true just when you need them to.

You should go.

It's great to travel with little ones too, don't ever let anyone tell you otherwise. I've been hauling my 3-year-old all over Southeast Asia this year -- and it's made amazing experiences that much more eye-opening and interesting.

I've also been to Morocco briefly and would LOVE to go back for longer (with my kid). The color was my favorite part.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE that color project video that Stephanie Perkins posted, too. Thanks, Stephanie!

We are all rooting for your dream, Laini.

jckandy said...

That's one of my goals in life! To travel and take pictures. I want to go to Italy, Rome, and Greece. :-)

I can't wait to see your dreamy-dream photos posted up here someday!

Laini Taylor said...

Kjersten, yes, we are so keen that Clementine grow up traveling! I was lucky to do so, and am so grateful. And you've been all over SE Asia this year?? LUCKY! :-)

I imagine that traveling with little ones makes it easier to connect with locals. Children are such barrier-breakers. I can't wait! And I imagine Morocco is a great destination for kids a bit older too, who can really enjoy the kasbahs and camel rides :-)

Kjersten said...

Laini, I'm living in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia for two years for my husband's work -- I said I'd come if his company would be willing to move my studio stuff -- that's why I'm traveling all over SE Asia.

Traveling with a kid does make it easier to connect with people while traveling.

We've taken Oscar on a couple of elephant rides (he's only 3, I rode with him). He loved them! And it did make me enjoy the rides more too.

Lovely picturea...but where's the photo of Amsterdam? I'm sure, visiting me, (hema)...is one of your dreams...:)

Melissa Walker said...

Gorgeous, gorgeous. I finally got to Morocco this spring! The green is a very holy color (but only men can enter the mosques through the green doors--poo!). It's a gorgeous country, though. I hope to go back.

RavenQuills said...

These pictures are truly beautiful. I loved all the colors in here. :]

The picture of the rice dish made my stomach grumble hahaha

Anywhere you go you should send me first for four weeks prior just to be sure its safe- like they did with the Secret Service before Clinton came to visit Sofia. Those pictures are amazing- it makes me want to paint my bedroom that shade of blue.
btw, I had a big lollipop paint spill. It isn't pretty at all.
