Oh the sensibleness of it all !! :-)

April 16th, 2009 at 01:17 pm

My 30th B-day extravaganza celebration travels have suffered the following downgrades:

1. Once in a life-time month-long trip of a life-time to Peru.


2. A long weekend in Berlin, Germany.

to currently

3. A night or two in some cool city in Ireland or a night or two in England (drive over on the ferry).

mmmm how awfully sensible of me !!

This is in the name of not overextending myself financially and keepeing to my goals as outlined on sidebar.

Ah well... At least I'm gainfully employed at the moment and I know I have a million things to be grateful for.

btw... the Peru and Berlin trips will happen... just not until I have all the money for them saved up in advance....

OOmmomph... this personal finance thing is hard work sometimes !!! hehe

    Honestly...a month to be away from home sounds a bit exhausting for me. And exotic as those locals are...there are plenty of us Americans who are jealous of your downgraded trip because we have never been where you are going! Enjoy!

    Wow, I'm sorry to hear that. But then, were you planning to go alone?

    If I had to go somewhere alone, I don't think I would quite enjoy it as much as opposed to if I were to with someone special. That's pretty much the reason why I have not traveled anywhere at this time, because for me, there is no compelling reason to. Perhaps someday, where there is someone to share that experience with to make a trip worthwhile, then I'll go....

    gameoock43- Good point well made. It IS all a matter of perspective. Ireland is beautiful. Britain is beautiful. Europe is on my doorstep. I know a lot of Americans would love to be able to culture-hop so easily. Never mind me - just throwing a mini-baby-tantrum !! I am blessed and I know it. I just forget sometimes :-)

    BA - yeah I was planning to go on my own. For me, its not an issue. If I want to see a place, my default position is I go on my own. If someone else is available to come, thats great. If not, that's great too. I really don't see the point in post-poning travel plans just because one doesn't have a significant other. The only person I need to enjoy myself is me... I know also some people would never dream of travelling on their own... that's fine too.. horses for courses !!
