We often get strange looks when we tell folks that we are taking a vacation. After all, we live in an RV and travel all the time. Why would we need a vacation? They don't understand that even though we live this way, we still have day to day life to deal with. The same four walls can get old....LOL!
So we are always on the lookout for new and interesting vacations. We recently booked a 5 day trip to Las Vegas. We had reward points that were going to expire. They covered the airline tickets. They we researched and found a great deal at Planet Hollywood. We got the dates co-ordinated and voila! Instant vacation…
As you know we just came back from two different timeshare vacations in the Smokey Mountains. We try to do that at least one week a year…this year we managed three weeks.
We love cruises and have a seven day cruise to the Western Caribbean this February…we’ll be going with other retired Firefighters that we know. Should be fun!
We’ve cruised Alaska (inside passage), the Panama Canal (only half way, still want to do the whole trip through) and both have done (separately) the Eastern Caribbean. Someday we’d like to fly to Hawaii and cruise all the islands. Also the South Pacific is on our list along with Scotland.
Recently we have taken to watching a show on TV, Househunters International. It’s opened our eyes up to a lot of interesting places to visit (not live…LOL!). For example, South America offers a lot more possibilities other than “scary” places like Columbia. I found a great website, NAVIMAG Ferries, that offers some amazing Patagonia Chile tours. I would never have thought about this but now it’s really intriguing to me….hmmmmm! Have bookmarked their site for now but will be back.
So where do YOU vacation?
Till next time - keep on rollin',
