Choose Your Own Adventure

You need to get out of town for a few days. Why? Pick a reason. You have the time off from work. Your ex is getting married and all of your friends are going to the wedding; maybe even your parents are going because they thought of him/her as a son/daughter. Maybe you need a romantic getaway to spice things up. Maybe you need a romantic getaway to get things started. Maybe you promised the kids they could see Disneyworld, and they are catching on to the fact that you are placating them with trips to Chuck E. Cheese.  Maybe you just need to get out of town for a few days because they found you, you don’t know how, but they found you.

Okay, first pick a location. Sick of the cold? Go someplace warm. Want to ski? Go someplace cold. Want some culture? Want to play some Golf? Are you a foodie? These are all things to take into account. Got kids with you? Just you and the guys/girls? These will be radically different situations. Although lots of places have everything you need for both kinds of adventures.

Next, how long do you want to stay? The correct answer: one week. Trust me. That’s the right amount of time.


How many people should you bring? At least one: you. Nothing wrong with going on a trip by yourself. In fact, solo trips can be a lot of fun. Don’t bring too many people though, it gets messy. Have a lot of kids? Don’t bring them all. Which ones have been good recently? Use rewards to modify their behaviour. Use being left behind during the awesome family trip to terrify them into good grades and completing potty training.

When should you go? The answer is soon.

Okay, that’s it. Now just take all of your answers, go online and visits an online travel agents.

If you want to travel across the U.S, I would recommend American Sky

. The U.S. is a big place, and there's plenty to see, so working with a travel agent that specializes in the U.S. is good idea.

If you are in the UK , and want to go, well, anywhere, I would recommend someone like TeletextHolidays.co.uk

. They have a solid pedigree in the UK and have access to some cracking deals to a large range of destinations.

Whatever you do, relax! .
