Oh the places we've been....
The other day as I was reading through blogs and trying to relax, I started thinking about the places that Bill and I have gone on vacations together. This was prompted in part by Sam over at Sam, Coffee, Money, and Thyme. She did a blog post thinking about travel for this year and recalling the places that she and her family have gone on vacations. I thought it would be fun to reminisce about the places that Dear Hubby and I have gone.
Some years our travel has been more expensive and extensive than others. Some years we have done just a short overnight trip, just to get away. Other years we have done a full week away.
So let's see the places that we have gone since we have been together::
August 2004-- Chicago, Illinois (to Wrigley Field to see the Cubs)(overnight) and later in the month to Pittsburgh, PA (to see the Pirates play)
October 2004-- Bucyrus, OH (we just needed to get away so went away for the weekend)(We actually went to Bucyrus like 3 times over 2004-2005 to just escape reality for a bit.)
July 2005-- Gatlinburg, Tennessee and Covington, Kentucky for our honeymoon
May 2006- Cincinnati, OH to see the Reds play and go to the zoo.
June 2006--Emerald Isle, North Carolina with extended family.
July 2006--4th of July weekend in Cleveland to see the Indians play and to go to the zoo
June 2007- Indianapolis, Indiana to meet up with Bill's friends
July 2007- Chillicothe, OH to get away for a couple of days
Summer 2008- Gatlinburg, TN for 4 days
2009- Pittsburgh, PA for a quick overnight trip to meet up with a friend of mine
2010--Indianapolis, IN for a quick overnight trip to go to the Children's Museum and the Indianapolis Zoo
2012--Kentucky--quick overnight trip to go to Big Bone Lick State Park and then to the Newport Aquarium
2013- No trip
July 2014- Indian Beach, North Carolina for a week
July 2015- Gatlinburg, Tennessee for a week
July 2016- Indian Beach, North Carolina for a week
November 2016- Pittsburgh, PA for a quick overnight trip to visit a friend from overseas
So we have been a lot of places together. We have taken the opportunity to travel and just get away even if it is just for a quick overnight trip.
This year, while we would like to take a week's vacation, the finances just don't add up right now. So we are looking into our options. We are also thinking proximity since it will be a shorter trip. We started looking into Hershey, PA as a possibility. However, we are just in the beginning stages of planning so we shall see what this year brings.
