I have 20 days vacation coming up in February, and our vacation plans have been derailed. We had planned for the whole family to get together in Hawaii, (side by side condos would have been nice, just picture the leisure nights on the deck overlooking the ocean, tropical drinks in hand), but the economy interfered, and not everyone could afford to go. There goes my opportunity to say, "Here today, gone to Maui!") So the remaining family members who still planned on a joint vacation settled on Cancun as a less expensive but still affordable alternative. The economy interfered again,though, with more family members experiencing lay-offs. So now I still have all this vacation time already booked, and nowhere to go. There are plenty of last minute deals that are quite affordable - have passport, will travel -so now I am spending quite a bit of time surfing the web looking for all inclusive vacations to Cuba, Los Cabos, etc. The longer I wait, the more affordable it gets. Vegas is also an option. Anywhere sunny and warm will do.
