“I want to get away.. I wanna fly away… yeah yeah yeah!” –Lenny Kravitz
You’ve got that right, Lenny! Given the weather we’ve been having, it’s no wonder many of us are gazing dreamily at our computers for warmer climates and vacation vistas. I am right there with you! For weeks, we have been scoping out possible Spring Break locations with one huge criteria: WARMTH. Or should I say HOT. Last year’s Spring Break trip to NYC was amazing, but COLD. As we walking shivering in Times Square past a gigantic beach billboard, we vowed then and there to “go warm or stay home.”Done with the cold. Finito. I’m like the adorable snowman Olaf in the Disney movie Frozen fantasizing about summertime (or I should say, springtime). Can’t. Wait.
The contenders? Top of the list is the Dominican Republic, followed closely by Turks and Caicos and the Virgin Islands. The DR and T&C have a slight edge over BVI because we want to try someplace new. Not that I won’t always have a soft spot for the Virgin Islands since we got married and honeymooned there. And I would really LOVE to do a land and sail package for a few nights aboard a chartered sailboat. Yes, I’m totally living up to my DIVA image here! So what’s your vote? Any advice or recommendations? I have narrowed it to a few places…
There’s the Dominican Republic:
Or Turks & Caicos:
Or the BVI perhaps:
What are YOUR travel plans for the upcoming year? I’d love to hear them (and maybe add them to my bucket list!)
