Wow – I can’t believe it’s been over a month! After my last post, work picked up quite a bit with sequestration issues, and we’ve even done some traveling since then as well (I promise to post about the trips later).
Our most recent vacation to Mexico has caused D to come down with a severe case of vacation fever. WARNING: Unless properly treated, it can be dangerous to your time when only in the research phase and your wallet once fever becomes extreme and you’re in the actual vacation phase. About 24 hours after our return to the States, Dave texts me with,”I’m planning our next vaca…”
Uh-oh. I knew that meant he would spend his few days in Pennsylvania – intended for quiet relaxation – researching flights and surfing resort pictures on TripAdvisor until his fever reached unprecedented extremes. Unfortunately since I just started a new job, I don’t have as much time off or the clout to be out of the office for extended periods of time.
But I have the fever too. In fact, I have always had the fever, as you can tell from my Pinterest travel board and past posts/entire premise for starting the blog to begin with. I think my love for travel stems from my love for food and wine, among a general interest in peoples and cultures. I imagine those reasons are what inspires most people though, right?
Our travel to-do list overfloweth at this point, but we still don’t know when the next trip will be possible. D wants to go back to “the cabin” for the Fourth of July, which is a definite option depending on whether I get Friday off from work. There is always talk of another beach trip and Europe is undoubtedly in our future – although the exact destination is a
contentious continuous point of discussion.
You can look forward to posts on our recent trips (and even other trips from the past two years), but in the meantime, I want advice from your travels! What places should be on our list? When is the best time to visit and what other tips can you share on food, activities and places to stay?
