Eat, Pray,Love{My Way}


I read Eat, Pray, Love by Elizabeth Gilbert a few years ago, and when life gets a little tough, I often just dream of getting up and going on a year journey of self discovery.

However, I would change up the locations a bit..

Here is where I would spend my time
EAT(and a little pray):ITALY
This part of the journey would stay the same. I would eat bowls of pasta. Learn to make my own wine. Visit the small Southern Italian town my family is from and learn every specialty I could


PRAY:ISRAEL
I don't talk too much about my faith here, but I am a practicing Catholic, and have been trying to get to the Holy Land for years and am really hoping to make it happen by 2012.


LOVE: AUSTRALIA
Because I feel with their sexy accents, the entire county is a bunch of this guy running around :)

Where would you ladies go if you could spend a year" finding yourself?"

  2. What an adorable post! You got my wheels turning...

    I totally would choose the same as you, but sub Greece for Australia (although the accents was a great point!). Always wanted to go to Greece... gorgeous!

  4. oh wow what a fantastic idea for a blog topic :) i love your choices! if all goes planned in less than 3 months i'll be heading off to india for 1 year to volunteer/work...i'm hoping to travel around to other neighbouring countries...so that year will kinda be me going off and 'finding myself'..scary and exciting.

    hmmm..my countries, i think, would be:
    Eat - Italy
    Pray - Egypt...or the Middle East
    Love - Bora Bora...because it just seems like the most romantic place on earth...or perhaps London...because sometimes I think my future spouse will be British...but then again I like your answer of Australia...

  5. Ah, I just recently finished reading this book. My eat might be Italy too (I've always wanted to spend time there because that's where my grandma came from, I like feeling like I experienced her history a bit), and then my pray would probably by China or Japan...but I guess that would be a BIG EAT TOO! lol. I've always found my own thoughts on life/religion to be more consistent with Eastern philosophies. And the LOVE part....well I've been dying to take a Summer off and backpack through Europe with my man. It is a dream, but hopefully one day I can make it a reality. :)

  10. Love this post! I enjoy your choices! Let me think now....

    EAT: Greece - I love kabobs, hummus, olives, all of it! Although very close behind would be Italy!

    PRAY: Italy - I am not Catholic but would love to go to Vatican City and see everything :)

    LOVE: Barcelona - Ever since I saw Vicki, Christina, Barcelona I fell in love. I want to drink wine, see art, and fall in love in Barcelona :)

  13. I'd keep Italy too - both to eat and love as my hubby is part Italian and that's our place to go before we decide it's time to become grown ups and start a family. I have got to read this book before going to see the movie
