It’s been a really long time since my husband and I went on a real vacation. If you’ve been reading my site you probably already know that I’ve been home sick with Crohns for the last 10 months. I’m going stir crazy!
So I’m thinking … In the new year, whether I’m back to work or not, and as long as I’m feeling healthy enough to leave the country for a week or so – why not take a real vacation?
If we are able to go away for a week I think we’ll take a Caribbean vacation. I found a site that describe many of the popular Caribbean islands. It discusses things to do on each island, places to see, things to do on each tropical island and even suggests what kinds of foods you could try eating during your stay. There’s even recipes for popular tropical drinks and food items too, so when you get back home, or maybe before you go, you can get into that vacation mood easily again by sampling one of the recipes.
One feature that I really like about this site is the “Warm Islands” Forum. It’s broken up into sections so you can talk to other forum members about the Bahamas, or the ins and outs of cruise vacations. Forum members can also discuss the various attractions of each island, such as golfing, surfing, tours, scuba diving and great restaurants.
The warm islands vacation planning and guides site has articles that discuss the many aspects of vacation cruises. You can learn about how to book a cruise, read about the cruise industry news, get tips on what kinds of clothing you should bring when planning your cruise vacation, learn about shopping on board and on the islands the cruise visits, and read about the various cruise lines and specialty cruises.
The more I read on this site the more determined I’ve become to take a topical vacation in the new year. There’s not much more that I can do to get better, but perhaps with a nice goal like a beautiful vacation on a warm island with my husband floating in my head, my body might start to co-operate and start getting better.
I can dream, can’t I?
