It’s a dreary and overcast day here in Toronto. It’s also fairly cool outside too. It’s times like these when I’m just waiting for the weather to warm up that I think about great vacations, particularly great summer vacations.
The best summer vacation that I ever had, had to be hands down the summer that I spent in Dominican Republic. One of my brother’s is a geologist and he and his wife lived on the island for over five years.
I was just 12 years old when I got to spend two months in the DR. I traveled to Miami on my own, by plane, and met my brother and sister-in-law in the city. After spending a couple of days in Miami off we went to the Dominican Republic.
I just loved the island and I even made friends with some of the children of the companies staff. Friendships that have lasted all this time. I believe I visited just about every area of the island, places that you don’t see when you can only go to an island for a week or two.
Unless I win the lottery I’ll probably never have a two month vacation on a Caribbean island or anywhere else again, but I can dream, can’t I?
Well, if the weather stays the way it is, perhaps Chris and I will book some time off and look for low cost flights to USA. I’m sure I could find some deals for flights to Florida or perhaps Las Vegas. I’m sure the temperature in both areas are nice right now compared to here, but still not too hot.
If you’re in the UK and happen to be looking for a great website where you can find cheap flights to the USA and other destinations worldwide you might want to visit Dialaflight. They have some great hotel and travel deals. You can use the website to book your complete vacation package including hiring a car to get around in once you reach your destination.
So tell me … when did you have your best summer vacation ever? Was it when you were a child or teenager? Perhaps it was your honeymoon? Where did your best summer vacation take place? Perhaps your replies will give me some new vacation ideas. I just love to travel.
