Vacations

January17

I have talked to a lot of people recently about the kind of vacations they like to take. Everyone has their own style of holiday, What works for our family may not be what yours had in mind.

For instance, we really try to soak up as much of a new area’s culture and history as we can. We have shown our kids how to enjoy a day at the museum, eat unfamiliar foods, and meet and communicate with locals who may not speak English.

One of the other moms at Birdy’s school was horrified at the prospect of spending her holiday like that. She longed for days in the sun, water skiing on the lake outside their vacation cabin in Waterford.

My in-laws just came back from a week in Cancun that they raved about. It was a prepackaged holiday on a huge resort and they really enjoyed the service, food and activities.

Our family went outside our normal city break routine and took a cruise around the Mediterranean last October. The tours around the ports were wonderful, and it was a great way to see a big chunk of Italy, Spain and France all in a week.

So what do you like to do for vacation? Do you save up all year and take a grand trip? Or are small weekend jaunts more your style?

    I like going on a vacation that doesn’t involve RyanAir BUT allows you to eat yummy food (like in L.A. :) )
