This calls for something special, right? A trip of course! We have so much going on but this may be our last trip solo for a while. We are exactly decided where to go yet.
Option #1 Thailand
Option #2 Italy
Option #3 Mexico
These are our choices listed in order of preference. Unfortunately they are also in descending order of most distance, time needed and cost.
I really wish Thailand could happen, because that trip needs to be done without kids (though not impossible, it would be preferable). I have wanted to go there for a long time and this may be our last chance for some years. We need a month to make this trip worth the 2 days it takes to get there.
Italy is a great second option as Ernesto has never been. We could fly into Rome and then take a train south to the picturesque town of Positano (where I have never been, pictured above). The Almafi Coast.....come on, it just sounds romantic, doesn't it? The only con is that I won't be able to drink wine. Oh the horror! We could do this trip in a week, but we would make it two just to make sure we aren't rushed.
Third option is to visit Mexico, and that could never be a bad choice. Its a quick flight, inexpensive and it's Mexico. We would pick an area that we haven't visited before. It would be a great time to pick up new textiles for our future house. Mexico is only a three hour flight so one week is easy here.
We are still weighing this and once we know if our house deal is going to go through with a closing of May 26th we can set a date. Im shooting for leaving May 10th. Perfect because we can back to our new home!!!
So what would be your top 3 destinations for a big anniversary?
(....and I don't want to hear anyone say Canton, Ohio)
