Have you ever wanted to have a wonderful, luxurious escape from it all? The never ending demands of work, the never-ending tasks of family, of life, of everything? Well, how would you go about that you may ask? Let me tell you! First off, you do not have to do anything big and extravagant like an around-the-world cruise in 80 days. Your next escape could be right in your back-yard.
I live in Chicago, and am writing this blog as snow continues to fall into the night. The high today was 18 degrees. Since I love to read about new experiences and am currently planning a get-away for spring-break, I thought I’d share some of my wonderful findings:
For the budget conscious:
Have a few bucks and need a break now. Take a look at http://www.bookvip.com to find modestly priced excursions and get-away packages from in-expensive 4-night stays in Hot Springs, AR to an enticing rendezvous in San Cabo, both for less than $500.
For the thrill seeker and adventurous:
For those who want a rush and are willing to take risks, cross the border to our northern friends in Canada (don’t forget your passport) and take a walk on the wild side on THE CN Tower’s edge-walk, http://www.edgewalkcntower.ca/ . This will surely get the heart pumped!!
For those who are willing to release terra firma, how about white-water rafting? Learn the basics at get started here for North America trips and locations: http://www.raftingamerica.com
