Good Life: Cruisin’

I’ve got VACATION on the mind.

I love traveling, and if I won the lottery today, I’d be gone tomorrow. Honestly, I am so ready to peace out of my job and peace out of the freezing cold winter. I’d like to trade all of it for some sun, some sand, and some rum. So, in two weeks I’m going on a cruise to Key West and Mexico. Of all the types of vacations, a cruise is pretty easy because you just get on the boat, and all the entertainment is planned for you. You can pick fun excursions to do (I’m going parasailing!) and enjoy the company of other vacationers.

Also, cruises are pretty inexpensive right now. You can snag a great deal to a fantastic destination. If you have no problem waiting, check out last minute deals to find a bargain. I have to tell my job at least a month before I’m going on vacation, but you can still find a great deal if you need to plan ahead. For those with more time on their hands, you can book a long cruise that travels to multiple destinations. For those who want to try something different than sunny beaches, a cruise to Alaska might be a good option.

My supervisor also loves traveling, and just last week she gave her two weeks notice to our company. She is leaving work to travel around the world and write a book. To travel around the world, she has booked a Round the World Ticket. Many airlines offer it, and it isn’t even that expensive. For around $2000, you get 6 to 8 flights that take you to destinations around the world.

You can pick a pre-defined itinerary or customize your route. For example, one route is New York – Frankfurt – Cape Town – Kuala Lumpur – Bali (Denpasar) – Singapore – Bangkok – Hong Kong – New York. This is definitely more than just a quick get-away, but it can help cure the wanderlust you’ve had for quite some time. For now, I’ll be happy with my week-long cruise but one day I want to try this Round the World Ticket. It makes traveling around the world a bit more do-able!

Mila is in her twenties and lives and works in New York City. She loves writing, running, and good music. If there’s a dance party, she’s there.
