Not a Bad Problem to Have
The kids are going to spend some time with their grandparents, so Matt and I are thinking of taking a vacation. The problem we are having is where to go. Airfare is quite a bit higher this year than last. Two of us can go to California this year for the same price as all four of us last year.
We decided a good way to make our decision easier is to look at the bottom line - airfare + hotel + car + food = the bottom line. We have a bottom line number in mind, that's where our problem starts.
We can go many places for that bottom line. Since it will be two passport-toting adults on this trip, we can go anywhere, except super busy London :(
Airfare to one location might be high, but the hotel is cheaper so the bottom line stays the same for the first three options.
Los Angeles - stay at a hotel near the beach and walking distance to coffee shops and restaurants.
Mexico - all inclusive hotel/airfare package
Florida - stay at a hotel near the beach and walking distance to coffee shops and restaurants
Staycation - head to the city once or twice, fold the heap of laundry, and clean out the storage room.
Somewhere not listed that is amazing - please leave a comment to this blog post!
