People constantly ask me how I decide what my next trip will be. To be honest with you, there is no rhyme and reason to it. I just go with my gut feelings (supplemented with whatever flight sale happens around that time). This trip idea, for example, was inspired from several blog posts as well as a WestJet flight sale last summer. I knew it’s never a bad idea to plan a trip post-holiday, especially in the dead of winter. So, that’s exactly what we did. We were in the Sunshine State for 1 whole week and here’s how things went down.
I’ve learned that it’s always a great idea to have a trip planned AFTER the Holidays. You know, I tend to be in a slum after all the Christmas festivities are over. Plus, I think winter (especially January and February, when the weather is so dreary) is a great time to go away seeing as it’s low season and things are cheaper. Last time, we went to Iceland in February, this time, I’ve chosen somewhere warm and I’m so glad I did! Temperatures in this part of the world dipped down to -25C all week and I cannot wait to leave it behind even if it’s only temporarily.
As we welcome 2018, I am reflecting back on the past year and once again, I am filled with nothing but gratitude. There were many personal challenges but there was also abundant growth. Here’s a look back over the past year.
