My husband and I just got back from our first adult-only-travel-with-other-friends vacation. And all I can say is “What took us so long??” Wow. It was a fantastic experience to relax and enjoy a ton of laughs with our friends without constantly having to stop and entertain a little one. I know I say this all the time so I am not really sure if I am convincing or not – but I do love my kids – a lot. And we actually travel with them. A lot. Thankfully, they are great travelers, but they are (thankfully, I guess) still kids. It was very nice to enjoy 6 days with an over 21 crowd.
We traveled with two other couples (my first time doing that). And I have to say it was a PERFECT group to go with. There were no real dramas to speak of – we were all able to do our own thing if we wanted – although we did designate our own “tour director” to help us keep everything in order…and in fact, I am soo glad we partook in lots of the offered activities.
The greatest thing of all – it was an all-inclusive resort…I would definitely do that again – it was strange at first to not carry ANY wallet with you – but we got used to it real fast! (Had a little shock to our systems when we went off the resort one afternoon!!)
All in all – it was AWESOME. Perfect time of year to get a sun-infusion and 85 degree weather! Oh and PS – to protect those who were innocent and those who were not so much – only Vanity Smurf will do!! 🙂
