by Arcadian » May 26, 2019 I hesitate to say vacation. But adventures generally do happen then for most of us. And I'm probably pipe dreaming considering my work schedule..... At any rate, I've not taken a real vacation since 2015 when I went to Galapagos/Ecuador. Now I'm itching to do something with myself though I'm not sure what. What you do you have planned/dreaming to do/want to do? ( It could be as mundane as taking a nap to climbing Mt Kilimanjaro.) I've got so many things I want to try. I'm cheap...(lol), and really utilize Groupon Getaways for stuff like this. My husband really has no desire to do some of these things, I just get the crazy looks, so I mostly do this type of thing alone. Some of the trips I was looking at pretty seriously: 17 Day Mt Everest Base camp Trek. Not available currently but I do see it pop up from time to time. I'd do it. Last time I saw it (last year!) it was within decent range money wise There's a 12-day Nepal hiking trip which realistically might be more my speed....lol decently priced. I could totally swing it. Azores is not available currently though I usually see it pop up in July and October. It may be more my speed these days...lol There's an 8 day package for Ecuador. Its not the one I was hoping for (really wish they would do the REAL cloud forest!!) Trekking Patagonia. Its pricey but doable. I might not need those new earrings after all Its also 11 whole days.. OMG, looks challenging. I kinda wanna do it. Oh and I did seriously consider Mt Kilimanjaro. No groupon for it though. Whats your proposed timeline? Mine is...open-ended....lol If I do pull the trigger, I'll have my timeline. What do you want to get out of this? I want to see the world, experience the world and its cultures before its just totally trashed or I'm dead. Maybe a bit maccab but its truthful.
