Answer honestly–how many of you would love to hear about a return trip to some of my least favorite destinations? I’m willing to bet many of you would be at least a little curious.
Well, you are all doubly in luck–first, I shall be returning to one of my least favorite US cities, New York City. And I shall be taking my poor husband–who loves New York, as he lived there for six years–with me. He’s understandably nervous.
I’m going for a weekend trip at the end of April. I was clicking around on Priceline, and lo and behold they accepted a bid on a hotel I was not expecting to go through. So for $115/night, we shall be staying at a 3.5 star hotel directly across from Rockefeller Center–and six short blocks from the convention that is the purpose of the trip.
But more on that later. I did say you were ‘doubly’ in luck, and here’s why–I’m thinking there’s darn near a 100% chance that I’ll be going back to…drumroll please…Paris. That is, at least within the next 18 months. It may or may not be with my husband–I’d rather it be WITH him, but he’s understandably a bit apprehensive about that idea. So be honest–how many of you would be thrilled to read about my return trip? The goal would be to ‘do it right this time’–which will include NOT going during the summer (and thus requiring me to travel without the husband, much to his relief) –with the purpose of being able to write about a major trip do-over. I’m doing a Disney World do-over with my mother in a few weeks, and I’ll be writing about that as well. But I just have so many great, bitchy posts about Paris–I need a comparison trip.
I’m totally doing it. Especially if I find a fare sale next spring like the one I stumbled upon yesterday–$414 RT from ABE to London Heathrow. I’m not going to lie–I contemplated booking it, despite my lack of time or money right now.
Am I insane? Of course I am. But at least I’m aware of it–right?
