So I dangled a teaser about my next vacation in my last post. I know that you've all been thinking about nothing else, possibly even losing sleep over it, so I'm going to tell you where it is.
Are you ready?
Are you sure?
Here it comes . . .
We're going to . . .
We found an excellent deal on Cheapcaribbean.com, and then did some extra research and found an even better deal on Travelocity.com, and booked that deal! For about $850 per person, we're flying through Miami (with a horrible layover) and then to Barbados, staying 7 nights in the Bougenvilla Resort there and then flying home.
The reason we got such a deal is because we're going in September, which is the low season in the Caribbean, thanks to hurricanes. Barbados, like Aruba, is set outside of the hurricane belt, so the weather ON the island should be okay. We're taking a chance mostly with the travel to and from the island during September, but we've got travel insurance, so we should be fine. Let's just all cross our fingers that Miami doesn't get hit in September.
The Crane Beach here was named one of the world's 10 best beaches, so we'll be sure to visit that one.
Now, I just have to make sure I don't get sun poisoning while I'm there. I got fried in Vegas, and had problems for a month after. Jim will be introducing me as, "this is my girlfriend, the girl who is sitting on the beach in long sleeves and jeans."
