Aloha Friday: Where Would You Go?

It’s time for another Aloha Friday, the day that you take it easy and look forward to the weekend, in Hawaii and blog land anyway. As you should know by now, over at An Island Life, Kailani decided that on Fridays she would take it easy on posting and ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response.

If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link at An Island Life’s blog. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

This week I’m feeling that deep down inside desire to get out of town. So I asked my husband to take us to a town nearby for a mini day trip. We decided a few months ago that we would not be taking a big family vacation this year – it makes sense economically, especially with a new baby coming this summer. Last year we took a trip in the fall which I loved, but we have no way of knowing what our lives will be like physically, emotionally or economically come this fall and I think it will be more realistic to stick to day trips for the year. Which of course means that my travel bug has been biting hard every month at least. The idea of being stuck in dodge for at least a year pains me. I love to travel. I also really want to move – knowing that won’t happen is easier to shoulder with the occasional vacations thrown in.

Right about now – I would be happy with anything – a fun tropical getaway to escape the snow; a fun New England getaway to embrace the snow; an exciting European vacation to get out of the US all together – they all sound fabulous. And you know, this day trip we’ll be taking tomorrow doesn’t sound so bad either. Anyway, blah blah blah, enough about me – here’s where you come in.

If you could travel anywhere this weekend for a little spur of the moment family trip, where would you go? What would you do? Tell me about your ideal vacation plans.


  1. If we lived closer to it I would go to Disney World. Near here to NYC to see a play, Boston to see all there is, or Niagara Falls to see the amazing wonder. Always good places that are not too pricey for a quick get away.


  2. I would head south where it might be a bit warmer.

    As for big plans we are thinking of going to South Carolina this June. No final decision yet but it would be a nice get away.


  3. If money were no object, Atlantis in the Bahamas. It would need to be someplace really warm, bare feet in the sand kind of weather. We went many years ago when our oldest was just over a year. It was so much fun and would love to share it with the rest of the family.


  4. I think I would like to rent one of those villas in the Caribbean (maybe St. John). We could rent a jeep and explore the island, snorkeling at all the different beaches.
