I recently heard about a web site for finding last-minute weekend getaways. I rarely plan vacations in advance so this could be useful when I discover I have some time off. I didn’t spend a lot of time on the site but the prices I saw weren’t too bad.
Mmmmm. The Bahamas…
The Bahamas is a long way to go for a weekend. Unless, you’re taking Friday and Monday off, too.
Mmmm… long weekends.
Great Link. I keep thinking of going to Mexico or the Carribean, so this might come in handy. Hey, I could go there for my upcoming honeymoon; I just need one thing.
Dan, you theif.
There is one problem with this site. The short getaways are exactly that. Short getaways. If you fly into London, you have about a day and a half before you’re trying to catch your flight out.
They have week-long getaways too, it’s just that you have 14 days to make plans for them. In other words they also offer a long getaway with a short amount of planning.
Cameron, are you planning a 2 weeks or less engagement once you find a bride?
Cameron, hon. Don’t plan the honeymoon before you find the girl. It’ll hurt too much when you’ve planned for the Bahamas and she wants to ski.
Actually, I figure if I plan a vacation for 2 weeks, that’ll give me a week to find a bride, a week’s long of engagement, and a plane ride back for the honeymoon.
Ok, that might be a little optimistic. Though no one here is involved, this is somewhat of an inside joke between my brother and I. When I had been off my mission just a little bit, I got a pretty good deal on a cruise, that was good for 3 years. I bought it thinking for sure I would be married in three years. I mean, anyone who’s older than 24 and not married would be a total loser, right? Well, the fact that I’m 27 and counting, reveals the fact that I haven’t found her yet. I actually got my money back for the deal, but my brother has never left the thing alone.
Cameron, you’re not making me feel any better about the 28th birthday I have this week. Thanks loads. :P
Why not spain? You can plan a vacations in Ibiza if you can have 10-15 days to visit Spain and taste its night :)
Spain would be nice.
Jan, I’m sorry. If it makes you feel any better, that’s not how I felt back when I was freshly returned (about being a loser). I just figured I’d be married in 3 years. What I’ve since realized is that it’s not a contest and for some people it takes patience, waiting for the right person to come along. In my case, I make an effort, but other than that, there’s not much else I can do but wait. Since many of us are still single, you’re in good company Jan.
I will soon be hitting the 28 mark myself.
Sometimes I fret a little that I am coming into oldmaidom. But then I think, someday, when I am changing really nasty diapers, I will look back and remember that I have been all over the world, have a degree, and done a lot (if not all) of the things I have wanted. There are a lot of benefits to marrying late in life.
Try spending the last minute vacation at home and reading something from Bahamas vacation book review instead. :)
