What to do, oh what to do?
John’s got two weeks of freedom between semesters and one of them will be our vacation week! This is a year for travel since next year there will be exactly ZERO trips… (because hopefully he’ll be starting school, I’ll be preggo and most likely working full time again)
We have Chicago in July for BlogHer and I’m trying to crunch the numbers to see if I can make it to Blogalicious in ATL (with or without my boys) and most likely the holidays in Florida. So those are set.
But this one week in May is giving me hives trying to plan!
Option overload maybe?
Things to consider:
- Cost of course
- Flight vs Road Trip vs Cruise from NYC area
- All inclusive or European Plan
- Distance, if driving that little man can tolerate
- Baby Friendly venues, food, sleeping situation
- Baby care?
- Packing for baby, and subsequent suitcase weight if flying
I had a cruise (Celebrity Summit to Bermuda) booked but cancelled it due to cost. It was on the high end of our budget and I know I find something to do that’s just as good (or better) for less.
A cruise is what I’m still leaning toward because….well, F it, because I just love cruising! And because I’m salty that for an international flight I’d have to pay for a seat for Roey. He can’t just stay in my and John’s lap. That makes me not want to fly out for an all inclusive resort trip.
That brings up other thoughts of….do I even want to fly with him at all? He’s been great on the 4 flights he has done so far, but it’s still a bit of a hassle. Should we do something nearby and save on air fare? I’ve got to decide…and quick!
