Should I stay or should I go?

Haul ass or Chillax?  That’s the eternal question when you are on vacation.  I think it’s important for you to get what you want when you are away from the hustle and bustle of work.  This trip is going to be a mixture of three very different situations.  When we were discussing where we were going and what we were going to do, Reina and I had some decisions to make.  Here’s what we faced:

Where do we go?
What do we do?
How long do we take in each place?

But there’s still the question.  Haul ass or chillax?  Have you ever taken a vacation and then thought, “Damn, I’ve got to get back to work so I can get some rest!”  Ha.  This comes from high expectations of your trip and you want to cram so much into a certain amount of time.  The opposite, total relaxation, may lead to not seeing the very place you want to visit.  Is this just my problem?  Here’s a perfect example.  Our first stop is Paris.  The Eiffel Tower, the Louvre, Notre Dame, the Latin Quarter, Shopping (for Reina), Eating (for me), and the River Seine.  I feel we are going to be humping around the city to see a lot of this.  But we have to sit and enjoy the river and I totally want to sit at a sidewalk cafe and enjoy people watching.

And then there’s knowing that we’ll be on a sixteen night cruise immediately after Europe.  Do we haul ass around Europe and wear ourselves out living it up and seeing everything knowing we’ll be lounging around a ship for a couple of weeks?  That’s probably more the direction we’re headed.  Haha.

I’ve never taken a long vacation like this and I can’t wait to get this thing started.  Thanks for reading this blog.  I  look forward to posting here from the road.  Six days from today we leave.
