So, a few days ago, I posted that I was going to plan a “secret trip” for May 2020. Well, I’m terrible at secrets, apparently.
I asked hubby if he’d rather go May 2020 or May 2021. He doesn’t have much (OK, none) background on what’s coming up, what trips will look like in those timeframes, nothing. He just doesn’t care and lets me do all the planning.
That said, he thought a May 2020 trip would “be fine.” He’s thinking that we’ll stop going with the kids at some point because they’ll get too old, and we’ll switch to other destinations. Oh, the innocence!
We’ve typically been going every other year. May 2020 would be only 18 months after our last trip, so a bit quicker than usual. Plus, I’d really prefer to do a longer trip if we’re going in warmer weather. More pool time!
What this all means is… I need advice from you lovely folks. Am I crazy to plan a trip for Memorial Day week 2020? I see the crowds are pretty high that week, this year, and I can’t even imagine how insane HS will be. But, is 2021 even better? Will I die if I can’t go for 2.5 years? (ok, not REALLY… but still… you all know what I mean)
So, what IS Memorial Day (and late May) like? Schools are getting out, the weather is getting warmer. We’ve always gone in October/December.
