Almost a year ago, in fact exactly a year ago I was on a vacation with friends for the first time ever :-). Visited California and New York. It was a fun trip [expensive being a student]. I loved every bit of the time I spent but longed to go back to Baton Rouge since I had some work to finish up :-).
This year, now that I am working didn't have the luxury of a months holiday during Christmas. However, made the most of the 4 days by visiting Los Angeles. A brilliant trip and totally unexpected fun in its own way. Day one was just driving through the coastal roads for 10 hours, day two was Universal Studios , day three was exploring Los Angeles other attractions and visiting Santa Monica Beach and day four was a non stop 5 hour drive back home and hogging the much missed home cooked food :-)!!!
Vacations need not be days long, what makes them vacation is the experience, joy and content of vacationing! I have been lucky to have it for two consecutive years and am making a mental note to follow the tradition in the following years as well :-)
Happy Holiday Season!
