Friday Five - Getaway Edition (Sunday night installment)


We snitched a bit of time on an quiet island nearby this week. It was a last minute plan, escaping with a minimal amount of preparation. One must have essentials that make it a relaxing time. Perhaps you have had this opportunity to escape, or maybe it's only been a thought to get away. However, suppose you were told to pack some essentials for a trip to get away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Describe your location, in general or specific terms and....

I think I'd head to the Galapagos Islands. I would love to know what moved Charles Darwin to change the way we view the world.

1) What book(s) will you bring?
Summer for the Gods: the Scopes Trial and America's Continuing Debate over Science and Religion, and a blank journal so that I can write and paint
2) What music accompanies you?
My Ipod - set on "shuffle" of course, because random mutation + natural selection = evolution
3) What essentials of everyday living must you take (as in the health and beauty aids aisle variety)?
Contact lenses, sunscreen, allergy meds, mascara, Prescriptives Vibrant-C lotion moisturizer, a jar of Kiehl's Intensive Treatment, toothpaste and toothbrush, lipstick
4) What technological gadgets if any, will you take with you or do you leave it all behind?
Ipod, camera, cell phone so I can text my children and surf the web without lugging the laptop
5) What culinary delights will you partake in while there?
I love breakfast, so I hope they have lots of AM treats like poached eggs and french toast. And at the end of the day, red wine, strong cheese and good bread.
As a bonus question, what makes for a perfect day on vacation for you?
A great breakfast, a long walk, time to talk to my partner, and a water view.
