Where to next?

26 Sep

For the past two years, Joseph and I have taken some sort of vacation.  So like your typical pair of Aggies, we have done it twice so now it is a tradition.

Both big trips we have taken have been ski trips.

The first one was to Breckenridge, Colorado in January of 2011.

  I had never been skiing before but I had a blast!  I only fell 2 times the whole trip and I even went a few blue trails! I was pretty impressed with myself…

Joseph, Lauren, me, Kooken, and Dano

We went with a HUGE group of friends.  Total I think there were about 40 of us in two separate houses.

Obviously we had to take a picture with the pretty horses

This trip was super cheap because if you have over 20 people you get special discounted ski lift and rental prices, not to mention splitting the cost of lodging with about 20 people basically costs nothing.  We stayed there for 4 nights and skied for 3 days and only paid about $300 each for the whole trip…the majority of that went to gas to drive all the way there!

Kooken and I were twinsies!

Needless to say, we got spoiled from the beginning.

The second trip was to Crested Butte, Colorado in December of 2011 (we just couldn’t wait a full year to take another trip).

This time it was just the two of us.

(when I wrote that I started singing “Just the two of us” by Will Smith and now it is stuck in my head)

We drove all the way there by ourselves which was exhausting.  Next time we will definitely be flying.  We stayed for 5 nights, skiing for 3 days and snowmobiling on the 4th day.

Check out that view!

Because our trip was early in the season (beginning of December) there was not as much snow as we had hoped.  And apparently this season was the worst season in about 10 years as far as amount of snow that had fallen…lucky us.

pit stopped to take pictures along our guided snowmobile tour

Our snowmobiling trip was supposed to be for 5 hours but there wasn’t enough snow so it was cut down to 3 hours.

Mac Daddy Pizza. Tasted just like a Big Mac from McDonald’s! We were so intrigued that we had to try it!

Even though it was way more expensive than the first trip, less snow than desired, and only the two of us, it was still a lot of fun because we always have fun with each other (well usually haha) but we both decided that next time we would wait a little longer in the season to go and try to make our friends go with us so we would have a big group and it would be cheaper!  We are “The More the Merrier” type of people!

So who’s down for an annual vacation with us??

He is liking the annual ski trip but I think I would like to change it up!  The problem is, I have no idea where I would want to go that isn’t out of the country, because let’s be honest, we are both too “thrifty” for those expensive flights.  I’ve never been on a cruise so I think that is what my eyes are set on…

Any suggestions for the destination of our next trip?  Where are some fun places that y’all have been for vacation?
