Good morning Dinks. Are you and your sweetheart planning to take a vacation this summer? This is usually the time of year when couples try to coordinate their time off from work so they can take a week or two and get out of town.
Last year Nick and I spent a few days in Niagara Falls and this year we’re planning to visit British Columbia or Prince Edward Island. We haven’t decided which one. With our busy work schedules we’re also probably not going to be able to get time off until September. But that’s O.K. A vacation is a vacation right?
Where are you and your spouse planning to take a vacation this summer?
Spend some time at the beach
It’s been years since I’ve dipped my feet in the sand so a beach vacation is just what the doctor ordered. That’s why we’re planning our vacation this year to a coastal city where we can get the best of both worlds – city amenities and beach relaxation.
I’m also headed off to the Carolinas (both North and South) at the end of September so there’s lots of beach sand in my future. Although with all the shark attacks I’m not sure I’ll be jumping in the water.
Rent a little cabin in the woods
The forest represents my two biggest fears in life: total darkness and utter silence. Renting a cabin in the woods is not really my idea of a perfect vacation but spending some time in the great outdoors can be very relaxing.
There is something so serene about the fresh air and smell of bark and trees that I absolutely love. However come night fall I just can’t seem to get comfortable – even beside a crackling fire.
Hit up an amusement park
If you’re more of a thrill seeking couple then hit the road and head over to Six Flags, Cedar Point or any other amusement park that’s in your area. Spending a day screaming until your throat hurts is a great way to have fun and get some fresh air at the same time.
Who knows you may even come out of the day with a new teddy bear. The only thing I hate about amusement parks is waiting in lines – I really hate waiting. Thanks goodness I have Nick there to keep me calm.
Try a vineyard getaway
What could be better than some alone time with your honey bunny? Some alone time with some wine. If you live near a region that’s known for its wine then why not take advantage and book some vineyard tours. I recently did this with my co-workers and it was a lot of fun.
We spent an entire day riding bikes around the countryside visiting different wineries and tasting their homemade brews with a variety of cheese and crackers.
