The older I get, the more meaningful I want my travel experiences. The likelihood of taking a dedicated beach vacation is nil. If I opt for a beach locale, there is surely excellent snorkeling or sightseeing like Mayan ruins nearby.
I’m not knocking beach vacations, everyone needs to relax, but sometimes you want more.
Now that I’ve managed to stay at a company long enough to earn 4 weeks of vacation, I have the luxury of taking different types of trips throughout the year. The days of needing a week planted on a chaise lounge to recover from a year of work are hopefully over.
