I booked a round-trip ticket to Salt Lake City to crash at my parents house and visit my sister + some long lost friends in Utah this week. I also wanted to go snowboarding in a place that isn’t -30C for a change! I arrived on February 6th and will head home on the 14th. There’s nothing I love more on earth than travelling, so I’m having a wonderful time on my week away. Additionally, visiting your parents is one of the cheapest vacations to be had.
Why visiting Mom & Dad is easy on the wallet:
Notice the key word “free” in all of those? No complaints here!
The total for this entire trip will come to roughly $1,000 when all is said and done, since I’ve been really good about staying at home to eat. Additionally, his vacation falls right in the middle of my 30-days of no spending, which means I’m not going on a shopping spree either.
Not bad, right? There’s lots of perks to being on vacation.
How I’m spending my time off:
- going to yoga
- watching movies
- eating everything in sight
- more writing
- more and more and more writing
- doing taxes
- plotting my ultimate takeover of the world
- reflection and personal growth
- reading books
In short, doing all the things I love. Well, maybe not the taxes, but everything else I love. As per usual, vacation is giving me time to relax, rejuvenate, and refocus on what’s important. A week away so early in the year is giving me a wonderful opportunity to plan 2013.
Books I’m currently reading this vacation:
Hope you’re having a great week!
