Today is the second Monday in the month of December and continuing my, A Few Of My Favorite Things series, today’s favorite thing is: Vacations!!
As Christmas gets closer many of you may be traveling back home for the holidays this year. But some of you may be going on vacation. The community we live in here in Egypt is primarily expat (foreigners) and they love to go on “holiday.” I love the term holiday. Holiday means, “a day of festivity or recreation when no work is done.” I LOVE that!
One of my favorite vacation destinations is Disney. I say Disney because Land or World, it makes no difference-I love them both. And now I love Disney Cruises! Our family got to sail the Mediterranean Sea with Mickey and Minnie and the rest of the gang while seeing the best of Italy.
My dream vacation came true when my family and I traveled to Germany. Maybe it’s my German roots or my love of a cold Hefeweissen and brat? Whatever it is when I walked out of the airport in Munich and inhaled the crisp clean alpine air, I felt like I was home.
I am very blessed to be married to a wonderful man and one of his many benefits is
that he is Hawaiian. So many of our family holidays have been spent on the beautiful Hawaiian islands. The Aloha State truly is full of love and they are absolutely focused on family. Cost of living there isn’t cheap so instead of traveling (why would you leave such a beautiful place??) they gather their ohana (family) and show up at the beach, park, or backyards with loads of ono (delicious) food. Watching the keiki (kids) play while the aunties and uncles play the ukelele and dance hula is what Hawaiian style is all about.
These are just a few of my favorite vacations but any time I spend with my little family is my favorite. Whether on foreign soil; at the home of an oversized rodent with animal friends; or sitting around the dinner table in my own home enjoying the holiday.
So what’s your favorite vacation or holiday? Leave me a comment telling me where your favorite vacation is and what makes it so special and you will be entered for this month’s giveaway.
As always, thank you for stopping by and may your holidays be blessed no matter where you are this Christmas season.
