Take a “No Kids Allowed” Vacation

by Kristina on September 5, 2012 · 4 comments

couple walking on beachI don’t know about you, but there is nothing worse for me than being in a place that I love and hearing the loud cries and screams of an unhappy (or hungry) child.  When I am out eating at a restaurant, browsing new releases in a bookstore, or relaxing on a beach the last thing in the world I want to hear is the sound of a screaming child; honestly it’s almost as annoying as finger nails scraping down a chalkboard.

I know that some of us are Dinks by our own personal choice, and some of us are Dinks by mother nature’s choice so please don’t misunderstand what I am trying to say; I don’t hate kids, I am just not a big fan of unnecessary noise.

Our friends at Dink Life recently sent out an email with some links to great vacation spots that are completely kid-free. Dink Life is a website by Dinks and for Dinks. It is sort of an interactive community board where Dinks can meet other Dink couples in their area, get coupons for Dink-related products and basically discuss everything Dink-related from our careers to our relationships.

I know that the “no kids” subject can be very sensitive and before our inbox fills up with all kinds of mail I just want to include my own personal disclaimer.  I want to say that just because I don’t want to go on vacation with kids doesn’t necessarily mean that I don’t like kids.  Not having kids is a personal choice that I made with my boyfriend Nick. I don’t feel bad about not wanting to be around kids because many resorts, restaurants, and hotels advertise that they are “family friendly”.  I think it’s great that these hotels are “couples-friendly”.

We went to a Sandals resort for our honeymoon and loved it! Loved that there was no kids there and would definitely consider going to a no-kid resort again in the future.

St Lucia is certainly somewhere we want to go in the future, so thanks for the info and the link, it gave us a good idea.
