Travel: What’s Your Type?

The first question to ask yourself when you begin vacation planning is simple: What kind of vacation do you want to go on? The choices are more numerous than ever before. It used to be, you would go on a vacation to relax on the beach or be active and hike the Tetons. But today, a vacation is no longer simply a time to vacate.

So what is a vacation? Ask five friends and you will get five answers.

We all agree that a vacation is a period of time when you stop doing your everyday routine and go somewhere to do something else. The theory is that when you return from doing something else for at least three days, you will have a fresher perspective and outlook on what you usually do every day. This fresher outlook will make you a happier and mellower person to your co-workers, friends and family.

Travel: Hot air

It is hard to think about, but now is the time to book your holiday air. The fares are already going up for November/December travel. There will be no significant sales to wait for. Spend a little time now deciding which airline and flight best suits your travel plans. Keep an eye on the fare for a week or two then book it.

There is nothing in the travel industry more frustrating and impossible to keep up with than the rules of the airfare game. Just when you get a handle on which day is the best to buy tickets or how much your suitcase is going to cost to ship, one of the airlines sends up a trial balloon.

If we don’t scream too loud at the potential change, most all the other airlines adopt similar increases. Over the past two months there have been enough changes in the air business to make me wonder if there is anyone with common sense and decency running our not so friendly skies.
