Traveling in the Summer

It is the summer and with it, comes summer vacation! I know for one, I desperately need a vacation and have begun looking around to see what would best accomadate my family. My girlfriend mentioned vacationing in Wales and to be quite honest, I don’t really know all too much about this region of the world. The only time I went abroad was when I visited Italy on a cruise a few years back and had a great time. I figured it was time to expand my horizons and look at other parts of the world that has true culture. I want to expose my children to sections of this country and beyond, that might have different ways of living than we have. I never had the chance to go outside the country, other than my short stay in Italy, so I thought this would be an excellent chance to take a look and see what is offered.

When I was searching around the Internet, I found out about possibly vacationing at holiday cottages in Wales.  How awesome would that be to rent a cottage for a week in beautiful Wales?  I could pick a cottage in Wales which stretches from the beautiful Isle of Anglesey through the magnificient  Snowdonia and Cardigan Bay, south to the Pembrokeshire National Park, Carmarthenshire and the Gower Pennisula. It would be so fun to rent a coastal cottage with some fantastic sea views.  I can imagine the look on my kids faces when they see the ocean right in front of them and the joy they will have frolicking in the seas. They will get to experience Wales first hand and perhaps we would then travel to other regions in Europe. I think this would be the perfect holiday choice! Before I make my decision, I also want to check out the holiday cottages in Pembrokeshire to compare and see which region we want to stay in.

I am so excited to start planning some summer vacations. We are not sure where our journeys will lead us, but I am sure it will be great. To me no matter where you go on vacation, you can’t go wrong. A week with no cooking, no making the beds, no daily routines- I will take it! Do you have any summer plans that are on the horizon?

    It would be nice to be able to do this. This year i am afraid my family will be staying in our home state and how very fortunate we are to live in Utah, we have beautiful mtns all around us and unexplored indian ruins to the south. Rock climbing, fishing, hiking, relaxing by the waterways, boating, biking, its all here!

    I actually would NOT want to spend my vacation in Wales. And do you know why? Because Americans are STOOOOOPID. And I would have to spend all of my time explaining to people where we went. No, we did not go see whales. Yes, Wales is a country. it’s in Europe. Yes they speak English. And so on, and so on. And then you have to explain WHY you chose that place, of all places (I can just hear the WHY did you choose to go THERE?). So yeah, it kind of ruins the whole excitement of going on vacation, don’t ya think?
