Maybe Next Year...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This year has been challenging to a lot of people…us included, of course. Our plan of going to the Philippines to visit loved ones at the end of this year will not happen. We have to prioritize in order to survive in this dwindling economy and travel is at the bottom of that priority list. I already told some of my high school classmates that I won’t be able to make to make it to our silver jubilee. Maybe next year we'll be able to attend...


Now, if money is not an issue, aside from visiting the Philippines, I would also like to visit some other places like New Zealand and some parts of Europe some day. I was supposed to visit friends in Europe in 2001 but I ended up getting married and moved here in the US instead. If visiting friends is my reason for going to Europe, New Zealand on the other hand just fascinates me because I had co-teachers before who were from NZ and they just couldn’t stop talking about their country. One even offered me to stay in her place while some suggested Auckland hotels in the CBD for under $100. I probably would have visited it already if I didn’t get married when I did. But I have no regrets at all...


Since I have a family now, everytime we plan to travel it has to be a family trip. I’ve read that serviced apartments in Christchurch are good for families like us. I can understand why if we want to maximize the trip and do nothing but enjoy the time together. Having a serviced apartment on vacation is like being home away from home without doing all the chores. Now, that’s what I would call a vacation. Planning a trip is definitely a challenge for me since I don’t travel much. It’s a great help to me whenever I come across sites that have stuff like recommended Wellington hotels with reviews and suggestions which places to go to when visiting a certain country. It definitely lessens the stress in planning a vacation.

My only problem now is when we can have that oh so relaxing get-away to see places like these...
