Juli Revezzo's Best Vacation Ever!

Isabel asked me to write about my best vacation ever. I have a secret: I’m not a big traveler.

I don’t care for flying and to me driving across country is underwhelming—interstates are really a whole lotta nothing for miles, aren’t they? I’ve seen the Grand Canyon and the Painted Desert and both were beautiful. I’ve seen the Plymouth rock . I’d go back if I could, I suppose. However I have more places I’d like to see, than I have seen and all that is marred by the fact that, well, like I said, I’m not a fan of travel. A lot of the time it just results in “Yep, that’s a hole in the ground. When can we go home?” *laughs*

  • I’d love to time travel though.  I’d like to see Lascaux as the paintings were in the works; I’d love to visit pre-revolutionary France.
  • I’d like to see the Bastille.
  • I’d love to be in the crowd when Marie Antoinette made that supposed speech about Cake. Just to see if it was true or not.
  • I’d like to be there at the birth of the Tarot, just to see.
  •  This is totally outside the realm of possibility of course, but I’d like to visit that underworld in my story House of Cards (scary as it might be), meet my Hag face to face and give her a piece of my mind! How dare she treat poor SInjon the way she does! Who’s Sinjon? What does the Hag put him through? What does France and the Tarot have anything to do with this? Well, it all ties into my story, House of Cards.
  • Can you gamble with Fate?

As a young nobleman, Sinjon escapes the Reign of Terror in 18th century France to find himself dragged into an even worse fate–a hellish underworld wherein he is put on trial by a demon tribunal for crimes he never committed. Can he answer their riddles and thwart his fate, one worse than the guillotine?

If you wish to read more about the world in my story House of Cards, and learn what my poor hero Sinjon goes through, House of Cards is available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Smashwords

So I couldn’t really do all the above. Let’s call it a fantasy vacation. So, what would be your fantasy vacation?

Thanks, Isabel, for having me here! This was fun. J I'd LOVE to see those historical places! After all, traveling to the Grand Canyon is great (and I have the pictures to prove it) but think of what historical/time travel would be like. Most excellent.
