Being halfway to 50 while planning a vacation is fantastic! The only two decisions that need to be made are when and where we’re going! My hubbie and I are literally going to Google and typing in, “Best Beach Vacations” every night until we find something we like. Without children at this point in our lives, we are free to pick up and go. Well, mostly free. We do have to go during the summer break because I’m a teacher. And we can’t go over spring break because that’s my husband’s busy time at work. But other than that we are free!
Who would have thought that selecting a vacation would be so confusing? Being halfway to 50 makes you think about things a little differently. We thought about Cancun or South Padre…. but then again, we’re not 21 anymore and willing to flash crowds for a free plastic cup filled with warm keg beer. We thought about going overseas to Paris but HA, let’s be realistic on what we can afford at this point. The typical vacations crossed our mind but, I it makes me laugh when I imagine our knees sticking out of the Dumbo ride with no child in our laps at Disney World. Soooo (big sigh) where does a halfway to 50, childless couple vacation for a week in the summer? We’re still not sure. Any suggestions?
