What is a vacation-dream spot?
A husband and wife booked a city bus tour in Athens, Greece. We were told to wait in the hotel lobby at 7 a.m. and hop onto the bus when it arrived, which they did. First red flag? Their guide spoke only Portuguese. Second red flag? The bus stopped at a port, and everyone was herded onto a boat. It turns out that they, two 69-year-olds, had boarded a 12-hour party-boat tour of the Aegean Islands with a Brazilian tour group! They had no IDs and very little money, so they decided to stay put (instead of getting off at one of the island stops), drink a few beers, and get some sun. Lesson learned: Speak up at the first red flag.

My husband and I are planning our mini vacations around 3 spots. One is our house in Florida, the other is our kids’ homes in OH, and the other is our grandkids’ home in TX. We see relatives at each one, so they are all good. This is one of the advantages of driving a truck.
We are thinking about taking a cruise in the next year or so. We have never been on a cruise, except we took a cruise to nowhere when our kids were young.
This time of year vacations come up a lot. Here is a link to 50 favorite vacation spots

I was curious about what the best time of year to think about taking a vacation, I had always heard August. I think it was until they started beginning the School year in August instead of September.
