My favorite part of planning a vacation is the anticipation…
I think I have said this before, but there is something about the excitement that happens inside me when I am planning a vacation. Evelina and I are going down to the condo in Naples in just under 2 months and I am beginning to get extra excited. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and it is a basket of grouper and chips!
I have been doing research to find some things to do which we have never done and restaurants at which we’ve never eaten. So far I am considering parasailing, bike riding, a sunset romantic dinner for 2 and a few other things. I must keep the list short because we are only spending 5 nights in Naples before heading to Disney for 3 days.
At any rate, planning and finding new things has really injected a bit of excitement into my veins especially when I realized we are less than 2 months from leaving.
For me the excitement begins to build when I start planning our route, designing a budget, scheduling reservations, etc. Looking at new places to eat and pictures of the ocean begins building an anticipation inside me that wants to erupt like a volcano. Each day of research uncovers something new for this trip or something I might want to put on the agenda for a future trip.
I just love the little adrenaline rush that planning a vacation releases in me.
Let me ask you, what is your favorite part of planning a vacation? And where might you be headed this year?
