It’s been on my mind for a couple of months… when am I going to take another trip and where will I go this time? Because of buying the house, taking an extended vacation is really just not in the cards this year. Which is why I’ve settled on next april. For my birthday, I am going to plan something. 2 weeks off of work if I can somehow swing it. An international destination of some sort. The ability to unwind, recharge and just reset myself.
I get antsy and itchy when I don’t get a break. I never knew this about myself. It’s only been in the last 4 years or so that I’ve figured that out. It’s this tension that builds in me and I just have to escape… from work, from friends, from everything for a few days. Longer if I can swing it. I’ve learned that if I plan something once a year, or once every other year, I don’t get so antsy and anxious or pent up.
So …. thinking through where I’m at, where I’ve been and what my budget will likely be… I’ve got a few ideas percolating. They are as follows (and not in any particular order):
- Ireland/Scotland/UK – go back and visit family and explore 🙂
- Fiji – because YES please!!
- Japan or China
- Mexico – simply because I’ve never been
- Alaska – also because I’ve never been
So … out of those options… which would you lean towards and why? 🙂
