While I was off not-blogging, I read (some), but I also plotted adventures. Although I won’t be going anyplace new or exotic, I have made definite plans to:
Go to Hawaii. Specifically, the North Shore in December. This will be our (our being me and Burger Boy) fourth trip to watch the pro surfers surf big, scary waves. We scored cheap flights (Allegiant Air just started direct flights from Santa Maria (about 45 minutes south of us) to Honolulu…yahoo!). And I found a studio apartment to rent…with the all important beach cruisers included. So we’ll be spending the two weeks before Christmas peddling around the North Shore and hanging out at the beach. I. Can’t. Wait.
Go to HB’s family reunion this summer. In Sunriver, Oregon. Again. But hey…it’s a cheap vacation, and I love Oregon.
Go to Vegas, baby. This will be a very quick trip in October to see a Cirque du Soleil show. My mom and her friend will be on their way home from a mountain bike trip (my mom rocks) and I’m going to fly over (again, thanks to Allegiant Air and their cheapo flights) to meet up and then drive home with them…the next day. As I said, a quick trip. But I’m a whore for Cirque du Soleil shows. (We’ll be seeing Zumanity, if you were wondering.)
Go to Booktopia. This is also in October, in Santa Cruz.
Go to Santa Cruz. Yes, for Booktopia. But it’s also where I am this very minute, since it’s HB’s birthday (I’ll rat him out…he’s 46). We’re gonna ride the roller coaster at the Boardwalk (a tradition with us in Santa Cruz) and then maybe ride the old train through the mountains. Woo-woo.
It makes me very happy to have my vacations all planned out for the rest of the year. While spur of the moment trips are fun, I like to have something to look forward to.
How about you…got any fun vacation plans?
