TRAVEL TUESDAY: Getting The Most Out Of Your Vacation

During the month of January, Mr.P and I always end up having the same conversation, " 'I am so ready to get away!', 'Me too - me too! Where do you want to go?'. ' I'm not sure. How about you?' " And with these words our yearly hunt for the perfect get-away begins. If you find yourself in the same situation, you are most likely still throwing around ideas. First, Mr.P and I base our decision on the type of vacation we want to take. Has it been a stressful year? Mr.P and I may NEED a restful vacation. 
Or maybe we want to experience and discover new things. Our vacations will usually fall into one of three categories:
  • Leisure and Relaxation
  • Sightseeing
  • Adventure
Then secondly, we decide where we want to vacation. If we decide to spend our vacation white water rafting, we look for locations that offer good quality rafting. 
Then thirdly, we begin the hunt for the best possible vacation packages. The type of vacation we plan will lend a hand in deciding on a hotel. 
For instance, if we are headed to Europe where our days will be filled with long hours of sight-seeing, four-star hotels are NOT on our agenda. Why? If we will not be spending much of our time in a hotel then we prefer to spend our money elsewhere. On the other hand, if we are getting away to relax, then we would be looking for a hotel or resort that we can enjoy. 
Looking back over the years, my favorite vacations have been the ones when we plan a vacation WITHIN another vacation, allowing us to have more than one experience. 
It's a smart use of not only our vacation time but money as well. A superb example of this would be to squeeze in a few days of exhilarating white water rafting on the Truckee River while staying in one of the dreamy cottages on the Hyatt Regency Resort property in Incline Village, Nevada. 
What a delight it would be to not only enjoy the peaceful solitude and breath-taking scenery of the Lake Tahoe area, but to spend a day or two experiencing the adventure of white water rafting as well.  Believe me, we would return home relaxed and rejuvenated ready to face the world again.
 What-ever, when-ever  or where-ever you decide to vacation, make it memorable, take lots of photos and keep a travel journal but most of all, plan ahead to get the most out of your time and money...
...you'll be glad ya did!

ENJOY!
