I decided over the weekend that I need to be better about posting on this blog. So...I came up with a new resolution. I'm going to post something every day....ok...I take that back. I'm going to TRY to post something every day. I make no promises as to what you'll see here...but there will be something. I debated whether I should make this a 40 days of lent thing and commit to it for that amount of time, but that seemed strange since I'm not religious and the only reason I even noticed it was lent was because someone brought in treats for Fat Tuesday. It is lent right?
So the point of this post is...
I haven't had a vacation in almost 10 years. The closest I've gotten is a long weekend in Yosemite with T and N, but I don't think that really counts since two of the days were spent mostly in the car driving to and fro. (yes. fro).
So I've been perusing airlines and various travel websites for ideas and prices on a nice long vacation. I'm thinking sometime in June and taking a whole week. The problem I have is that since I don't vacation and don't travel anywhere fun for work I have no idea where to go. Before I open the floor to suggestions here are the criteria:
*sun and beaches. somewhere tropical or tropicalish (not mexico. too dangerous right now, plus I'm not about to ruin this one vacation with a bad case of Montezuma's revenge).
*relaxing, but with activities if we so desire (ie snorkeling, caves, hiking, or justsitting on a beach)
*affordable. I'm well aware that vacations are expensive (that's why i haven't taken any), but I'm looking for a good deal. Most bang for my buck here.
Ok. Here is where I ask the intranets for advice...where have you gone? where have you stayed? would you go again? was it worth it?
