Today we are talking vacations! Spring break is around the corner and we are in a dilemma! Do we go on a vacation, do we save the money, (uhhh is there actually any money). As many of you know I am a whole hearted sun seeker. If there is sun and warmth, I want to be a part of it. In comparison my husband is more conservative. I put him in a category called ‘never nude’. Never nudes are a delightful but don’t necessarily find the beach to be their “comfort spot”. Even yesterday we were at Costco and saw they had swim shirts out and Lily and I were all “ohhh never nudes on sale”. Imagine a man on a beach with a really thick furry hairy dark turtleneck sweater and speedo. That’s not my husband I just really wanted us all to envision that! Lol. But he is a touch shy, he likes the beach and warmth, he just also enjoys other things.
I know many of you are wondering how does she travel so much? Well I plan. And I plan to travel a lot more. I have lots of tips and tricks for vacation planning that I plan to share with you over the coming month, so stay tuned, but first….
Based on our location vacation options are: Beach, Mountains, Family visit, minication, Staycation.
I like to tell you everything so I have enough airline points to fly 4 or 5 of us anywhere in North America. Obviously we will just pay for the 5th person if there aren’t enough points, or will we???? Be on good behaviour never nude!! Okay so airfare covered!
East: We could visit Toronto, we’ve been talking about the LEGOLAND Discovery Centre, CN Tower, subway rides, hotels with waterslides, Grandmas house. Theres some pretty big lures that way.
South: I’m mostly looking in the Caribbean. St Martin has a huge spot in my heart, but we could also explore new islands. I love the festivals, the food, exploring new culture. I do have my eye on a couple spots.
West: We could drive to the Alberta/British Columbia mountains. This is a completely alluring option except how will I be on that long of a car ride? Will my neck be okay? I have some injections scheduled next week which I’m hoping will be helpful. There are ways to travel with chronic pain. I think we should designate an entire post on ways to travel. Chronic pain people, dust off your suitcases, the world is out there and we are going places!
Stay: we could stay here and enjoy the beautiful city we have been so fortunate to live in. Museums, parks, roller skating. There are so many things we have yet to discover here, we could just stay and enjoy home.
SO… what do you think? What would you choose? Or have you already chosen something?I would love to hear any travel tips you might have.
If anyone has any burning questions I would love to be able to help you out with planning your trip. If you are military, Canadian or American I know a few extra tips for you. Please feel free to ask me any trip planning questions you have. I booked this whole day off for relaxing time. Wednesdays are a big day for me which leaves me uncomfortable so Thursday so I am mellow with no plans. You can leave a comment, email me, or Instagram me @ withlove__kate (link on the right). Why are there two underscores? I have absolutely no clue, I’m assuming I was middle of the night baby nursing tired? I honestly don’t know.
