Plans for the Upcoming Year

I am lucky enough to have a family that brings me on amazing trips almost every year and I cannot thank them enough for it. This year, the fam is venturing to Marco Island, Florida. I haven’t been to Florida since I went to Disney as a kid, so it’ll kind of be an entirely new experience for me. My parents have been thinking about moving down there after they retire so the trip is really half vacation/ half location hunting.

My mom is the planner of the group, so she rented a beautiful house along the canal to stay in for the week. It includes an enclosed pool, fishing access, and a bedroom for each of us. My family is funny when it comes to vacations because we all have different preferences. I am happy with going to the beach and relaxing for a week. My brother likes the country and open roads, so a road trip is his cup of tea. My dad can never stop moving, so any kind of place with a lot to do and see is perfect for him. My mom is the mediator, so she tries her hardest to make everyone happy. Last year we went to North Carolina (as previously mentioned) and that trip was more for my brother and dad. This year is more for me, because we’ll be by the beach and have a pool and will be able to hang out as a family.

This trip was planned awhile ago, but I just found out that I will probably be going on another one in the winter. My sister lives in California with her husband and she just broke the news that she is pregnant! I’ve never been to California and every time I asked to visit my dad said we will go when we have a reason to go. Well, a new nephew for me (and a grandson for him) is a perfect reason! So we will probably be going to visit sometime between September and December to see the new addition to the family. Sounds pretty awesome to me because not only do I get to travel more, I get to do it for an amazing reason. I can’t wait!!!!


Discovering Disney

What does Walt Disney World not have? Now, I won’t pretend that I’ve been to Disney any time recently, but my love for the place is enough for me to write about it. Rides, museums, exhibits, characters, parks, and more. There is no one that could go to Disney and not be happy, which explains their logo. It’s for all ages and satisfies all, no matter the personality. (OK fine, maybe the pessimistic people)

In regard to the college-aged people like me, it is still our time to enjoy all that Disney World has to offer! If you do not like the movies or think you’re too old for the Mickey- faced waffles, then fine. But tell me you don’t enjoy going on rides or the idea of drinking around the world with your friends. My friends have made plans to visit Disney solely to do what newly 21 year olds do best, drink everywhere they can.

Not only does Disney offer kids in their twenties practically a full world, it also offers an environment to enjoy your childhood again and remember how it felt to watch your favorite movies and even meet those characters you cherished so dearly. It allows for us to eat a meal with our favorite princesses and explore the settings that our favorite movies took place in. I don’t know about you but that sounds like a pretty great place to visit.
