I think I have lost my mind. Really! Ok, so maybe I’m joking, but who else would do what I’m about to do? I have an opportunity to travel in December for a week almost anywhere within reason and the thought of being able to go almost anywhere has resulted in brain overload. Last year I was so spoiled by not only being able to go on six cruises with more ports than I care to mention here, but I also visited London, several cities in Ireland, Spain, and France as well as Jeddah, Saudi Arabia. This year has been somewhat more low key and I’m itching for a little adventure in my otherwise mundane life.
Since I live in the Northeast, one might assume that by the time December rolls around I might want to go somewhere warm like the Caribbean or Mexico. In a way that is true, but I am looking more for somewhere new that I haven’t been to and a place that I can enjoy for more than a day or two. I’ll only have a week to travel so I really don’t want to spend two days traveling to and from the destination so that should help narrow down some places. I also don’t have an unlimited budget so think more Travel Shop Budget Girl, but not Travel Shop Broke Girl. I’m more about experiencing the local culture than staying in a 5-star hotel and not getting a feel for the country I’m visiting.
Send along your suggestions by either emailing me or posting a reply here. Explain why this would be a great destination for me and If I take your suggestion, I’ll send you a Travel Shop Girl t-shirt! In addition, I’ll blog from the destination while there so you can ask questions, see pictures and video, and enjoy the adventure with me. Does that sound like a good plan to you?
