Summer has officially arrived. ‘Tis the season for road trips, sunburns, and mosquito bites.
I’ve never been much of a camper. Even as a kid, the “roughing it” thing didn’t appeal to me. I prefer a hotel with a real bed and daily maid service. I’d rather have tiki torches along a manicured walkway than a flashlight along the path to a communal restroom. I like the idea of wearing flip-flops to the pool, not in the shower.
My perfect vacation includes sand on the beach instead of in my sleeping bag. It includes turquoise water and a chair sheltered beneath a palm tree. The soothing rhythm of waves washing up on the beach, a cold drink nearby, and a book in my hand. Always a book.
What does your perfect vacation include?
