I'm a little late posting because I completely forgot today was Wednesday. All morning I've been running around under the assumption that it was Tuesday. I'm leaving on vacation this weekend and have a ton of stuff to do before then and now I realize I have one day less than I thought to get everything accomplished!
I apologize for being hideously unprepared so today we're going to chat about the only thing on my mind. Vacation! Before I got married my sister and I took off a month and backpacked around Ireland. This probably ranks as my favorite vacation because I was younger, single, didn't have a mortgage or many bills to worry about and we were free to do what we wanted. I love traveling with no schedule. My second favorite vacation I took with my husband a year after we got married. Right after our wedding we couldn't take a real honeymoon (he was still in the Marines) so a year later we took five weeks off and traveled across Australia and New Zealand. The people and country were amazing and if we ever get a chance I'd love to go back. Snorkeling along the Great Barrier Reef is one of my favorite memories there. The end of that trip was a little crazy. We stopped in Fiji for a couple days before heading back to the States and I gashed my foot open on a rock. Visiting a 'hospital' and getting a tetanus shot in a third world country was certainly an experience I'll never forget. They didn't even charge us. People just gave donations of what they could afford.
So what's your favorite vacation and why? Where's somewhere you'd like to go but haven't made it yet?
