a.k.a. The Neurotic Travel Planner's Sanity Guide
Are you a travel planner or are you more of a "wing it" type of person? I am definitely a planner.
I genuinely overdo everything. "Is today your birthday? Look! I made you a birthday cake with a fondant sculpture of your face." "It's girls night! I made a list of all the places we can go along with a precisely timed itinerary and a breakdown of prices and suggested tips. Isn't that FUN?" "Potluck dinner? I made a 19 layer salad with hand foraged mushrooms and dressing that I made from my own herbs. I also made special pottery bowls to serve it in. Surprise!"
I just HATE when things suck. So when I’m planning a trip, I spend a neurotic and unhealthy amount of time trying to prevent any sucky elements from disappointing me during my travels.
This means that I typically have a travel calendar planned nearly a year in advance. This keeps me sane.
I know, I know. This is unhealthy. I need to get a life.
In the meantime, enjoy taking a peek at what we have coming up!
(I apologize in advance for photos shamelessly pirated from the internet)
FLIP THIS HOUSE: GUANA CAY EDITION....tune in as Matt and Vicki try to turn a beach house into their own little piece of paradise....with a special bonus edition: a side trip to Eleuthera!
Girls Trip to Asheville: 8 Women, 3 beds....it has to be interesting.
Getting our hiking fix at the hike-in only Charit Creek Lodge in Big South Fork: It's not Montana, but it'll do.
Tortola, BVI: It's time for a trip to the Virgin Islands that doesn't include Mothers in Law.....
Honduras: Yes, I said Honduras. I know it's the murder capital of the world, but it also has this awesome deserted island where Matt and I will spend 3 days alone and either have the time of our lives or commit a murder/suicide out of boredom. That will be followed by 4 days in an awesome villa on Roatan to make us forget what it was like to live without electricity or ice cubes.
Matt's Big 5-0 Blowout on Jost Van Dyke: 16 Friends on the barefoot island....how awesome is that?
Plus a regular smattering of weekend trips just to keep things interesting. Stay tuned, friends, it's going to be a helluva good time!
