Don't be looking to this post for good advice. I am the one needing advice here. Vacation planning. Something I have never really had to do by myself. Finding flights, finding a hotel, not having to give them your first born child. It's very stressful to me.
I spent the majority of my day yesterday researching places to go for Spring Break, and I just can't find anything that I am in love with that doesn't cost an arm and a leg. I'm not trying to spend a ton of money...money that could be used for other important life events that may or may not be happening sometime in the near future.
I want to go somewhere different. Somewhere that we have never been.
At first I wanted to go to San Francisco for a few days, but then I decided that San Francisco in March would probably not have ideal Spring Break weather, which I decided is something that I want. And it's pretty far away from little Indiana.
Then we talked about going on a cruise. I'm not going to lie, going on a cruise was never something that sounded appealing to me. Buffets, stage shows, small rooms, it just doesn't sound like my thing, not to mention the diseases you always hear about people getting on the news. Yuck. But I decided to look into it because it could take us somewhere sunny and warm that we have never been. And there are cocktails. That is an important factor.
Then I started researching travel deals on Groupon to Cancun and the Dominican Republic. They were great deals for all-inclusive resorts, but it was going to be about $1,000 for each of us, and you had to fly out of certain areas, meaning we would have to pay for additional airfare to get to those airports.
So now I am stuck and taking suggestions because I can't find anything that I am in love with. Where do you like to go for a warm-weather vacation? Help!
