Summer Staycation Ideas, Part 1
I had pretty big plans this summer. I say that in the past tense because the cost of gas caused me to reconsider the epic road trip I had wanted to take with my sister this summer in favor of more affordable getaways.
If you're feeling the pinch at the pump, I think you're going to enjoy my new blog series - Summer Staycation Ideas.
Yes, the book! What better way to escape the summer heat and avoid the rising gas prices than a reading staycation? I've got the perfect book picked out - a beautiful hardbound edition of a beloved classic. You'll love the feel of the cloth cover and enjoy the fun extras included in this beautiful addition to your collection.
What's a trip without proper souvenirs to remember it by? I've got SIX souvenirs that are just perfect for this summer staycation, each one carefully chosen to pay homage to some aspect of the book, the main character, or his companions.
💭Some are thoughtful, like his landlady.
💡Some are brilliant, like the main character.
🧩Some are puzzling, like a good mystery.
😲Some are surprising, like the ending.
🤓All are clever.
This book transports the reader from a homey domestic scene as the book begins (much like where you'll be reading it?) to an eerie ancestral home nestled in the beautiful wilderness of Devonshire, England.
Walk the moors.
Enjoy your stay in a fancy ancestral estate.
Get to know the neighbors.
And in your free time, get your clever on and sleuth alongside the World's Greatest Detective.
After long days at work this summer, wouldn't it be a treat to have nighttime adventures running around the mysteriously strange moors from the comfort of your favorite reading spot?
It's a summer staycation you'll not soon forget!
