I don’t know about you, but when I get to this time of year, where it starts to get warmer, and the days are visibly longer, if I don’t have any trips planned I start to get stir crazy. And when I say “trips” I mean vacation. (We have plans to visit family for a birthday but that’s just a weekend so that doesn’t count 😊 )
How do you handle that time when you are dreaming of where you’ve been or where you’d like to be instead of where you really are?
In a perfect world I could take off for a long weekend with a bit of Florida sun before it gets too hot. In my real world, I have to worry about vacation time, doctors appointments, work and then of course the cost of travel…
I’ve come to really enjoy looking at my pictures from “today in previous years” as a way of reflecting where I’ve been and where I want to go. I feel that travel should be a mix of visiting new places and revisiting old favorites. I’m one of those people who never gets tired of Disney to the point that some people are shocked when I say I’m going anywhere else. That being said I really enjoyed our 4 presidential library visits of 2019 and our National Parks in 2016 and 2018.
How do you decide where to go next? Do you have certain places you always go or do you have your wish list that you chose from? I have a friend who picks dates and goes to Google Flights and sees what fits in her budget and goes from there.
Hopefully I can get back to travel planning soon, in the meantime I’ll be searching through my photo history and dreaming of that fun in the sun!
