I love to travel. Love, love, love, to travel! As a child, my family vacations revolved around camping, “roughing it” in tents, and taking long drives to get there. Imagine going tent camping with 14 people in a 15-passenger van, and you’ll begin to get an idea of what I’m talking about…
In college, I started traveling a bit more. I took trips to NYC, FL, CA, but still, nothing too big. Then I got married and discovered that my MIL also loves to travel, loves to talk about it, and plan trips. Chris is always wary when the 2 of us get together and start talking travel, because it’s not unlikely that it will end up with a big trip. The last time we started to talk about Europe and Spain, it ended up with a trip to France.
I know that we are going to St. Thomas in January, and I am definitely looking forward to that, but I am already thinking about Chris’ Spring Break. Since we’ll be taking a major trip just 2 months prior, I don’t want to go anywhere too far away with expensive airfare.
I’ve been looking at things in North America, particularly close(r) to Massachusetts. I’m interpreting “close” kind of loosely, so bear with me here. One place that looked good was Marriott’s Manor Club at Ford’s Colony in Williamsburg, VA. I know that most people go to places with warm, sunny beaches on Spring Break, but I’m trying to broaden my horizons. Besides, I’ve never been to Williamsburg.
Also nice looking (and different) – Bighorn Meadows Resort in British Columbia. I’ve never been to Canada, and this place looks beautiful.
But, maybe I’ll abandon my plans to stay in North America and try to talk Chris into going back to where we spent our honeymoon – Marriott’s Marbella Beach Resort in the Costa del Sol region of Spain. Something tells me he won’t be up for it, but I can dream, right?
