Next year we got a new place in mind!

The Captain and I are already talking about our next big vacation.  I know what you're thinking.  You're thinking, "What?  You just got back from vacation."  Yes we did.  But we met some really great people why we were sailing.  There was a family we met from Canada.  (No we are not holding that against them.  Besides I really liked the way everyone says "eh".)

Like most vacationers do, we exchanged email address and mailing information in order to keep in touch.  I think we were home a couple of days and already had heard from them.  The emails have passed fast and furious and now with the ability to Skype, we can talk to them too.  

During a brief conversation about a week after we got back my Canadian friend Linda said, "We should make plans for our next vacation together."  Before I knew it we were emailing each other resort information and destination brochures.  We came up with a plan pretty quickly.  And by plan I mean we have finally picked where we are going to go.  We still haven't decided where we are going to stay, but I am sure that will be an easy enough decision.  For me it has to have a place to put a chair right next to the Ocean.  For everyone else, The Captain included, they need to be able to wind surf, snorkel, jet ski and blah, blah, blah.  

So where are we going?  Glad you asked.   Next year we will be enjoying the sights and sounds of the Dominican Republic.  I'm glad because I will finally get a stamp in that brand new shiny passport I got this year.  I have been to a lot of place out of the country.  But when you travel with the military you don't need a passport.  

I promise to take lots of pictures and share everything with you guys when the time comes.  But just to get an is a pictures.

Where was the coolest place you ever vacationed and who was it with?

Oh, sounds like fun!

On a side note, I had no idea I had a Canadian name. ;)

that looks BEE-YOU-TEE-FULL!!!

I, too, procured a passport to go on a vacation that I earned when I was in Direct Sales (yep, people actually earn FREE vacations!!!)back in 2009.

Hubs and I were ecstatic for our first trip beyond borders to a beautiful resort in Cancun wherein we would pay ZERO for gratuities, hotel or food.

Alas, SWINE FLU struck Mexico and our treasured vacation went out like slop to hogs. The company awarded us GENEROUSLY but once the money was in hand I instead bought this laptop and paid some bills.

*sigh* that's where I'd go.
