Oh vacation time

Filed under: Around Us,Expat Blahs,Girls' High — kengkay @ 5:44 umaga

It was a last minute decision, our one week vacation.

After the stress of the past week, we definitely needed a break. Where to go? We planned to drive to Garda Sea in Italy, to rent an apartment there. But my husband checked the weather forecast in that area, hmmm, rain? Nope, we dont want to spend a week holed up in an apartment.

So he checked for Tunesia. Saying, when everything would be added (gasoline, rent, food, etc), we could afford to fly to Tunesia and stay in an all inclusive resort and it would be definitely warmer there. We checked. No more available flights to Tunesia. After all, it is still summer vacation here in Germany in some parts of Europe.

The travel agent recommended Mallorca, Spain. You know what my image of Mallorca is? Ballerman and Ibiza – meaning, party, alcohol and noise. But when I looked into the website of the resort, well, it is actually located in the north side of Mallorca. With it’s own private beach, animation for kids, wellness facilities, etc; plus we are getting an all inclusive package. And we are flying!

Instead of getting the car ready, though we had it inspected already and I started stacking up on snacks and toys for the five-hour drive; I am only preparing for our luggages this time. And what does IC say when she saw two luggages only? ‘Mama, we should bring more bags,’ she said she dont want to come back anymore! That says how the kids saw our past weeks 😦

So here’s a tip: if you think you could be paying for the same vacation price for an all inclusive package; why not check the possibilities first? And here are tips on how to find cheaper airplane fares.

I have also ticked my list of things to do before going for a vacation. Before I realized, I needed a new list — simply because, it is summer time and there’s enough to do in the garden!

  3. oh we’ve been to mallorca and i assure you it has lots of places without the ballerman flair,
    the beach quiet and the small sleepy towns are so romantic πŸ˜‰ .. if you do a trip, try visit valldemossa… very beautiful town πŸ˜‰
