Island Hopping

I am in need of a vacation. I need to plan a nice little trip. I got a Travel + Life magazine in the mail the other day and it was all about the Caribbean and it made me start daydreaming of lying on the beach with a drink in my hand and waves crashing on the shore….

I need a vacation. moving 740

I like this full spread map of the Caribbean in the magazine. I went through and put “X’s” over the places I have been. I’ve been lucky enough to have gone on about 6 Caribbean cruises with my family, so I have been all over.  But there are so many places to go and things to do and see, I am eager to plan my next trip to warm weather! moving 741

I love cruises, they are one of my favorite ways to travel. You go to bed every night and wake up in a new location! How fun is that?! I love all the variety of things to eat and drink, and all sorts of different types of entertainment. I love it! For me, a cruise is perfection.

My favorite place in the Caribbean is St. Thomas. I loved the feel of the island. There was a fabulous vibe and its just pure beauty. My least favorite place would have to be Jamaica. I had a bad experience there, and don’t really want to go back.

Boyf and I have a trip planned to go to Niagara Falls in November for our 4 year anniversary and I am super excited about it. I have been to Niagara before, but boyf hasn’t. It will be fun to see the falls, go to the casinos, maybe do a little Maid of the Mist action, see the IMAX show, there is lots to do! I am excited about it, but the more and more I think about it, the more I realize how cold it could be up there. Brrrr! I need to plan a trip somewhere warm to even it out!

Do you have any vacations planning coming up? Any thoughts on the Caribbean? Part of myself things I am weird because it IS summer here, and I am complaining about wanting to go somewhere warm, but laying on an island is a little bit different than laying in my apartment complex pool. That’s all I am saying! Maybe I will have to bring the island feel to my pool here!

    Our big vacation for the year is to Budapest over Labor Day…very excited 🙂 Though, I LOVE island adventures! Went to Grenada in November (first island and beach vacation!) and loved it. You should check it out! We had a great experience on one of the smaller islands – Carriacou. Such a great escape AND a quick direct flight from NY area airports 🙂

    Woe you are one lucky duck to have gone on so many cruises! I have never been on one, but I hear that they are so much fun 🙂
    I am going to Honolulu and Maui in September to run the Maui Half Marathon with my boyf. I am so excited; I haven't been on a break/vacation in…2.5 years!

    I went to college in Buffalo and it gets cold around November. Bring your jacket!

    Aruba is always a fun place to visit and Turks and Caicos too. It is always fun planning a vacation.
