Up until last year, we never considered traveling over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. For starters, it’s one of the busiest times of the year and we try to avoid going at those times whenever possible. We also like to spend the holidays at home with friends and family when possible. However, there comes a time when the things you want to do only happen over that period.
Like the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
If we wanted to get to New York, we’d have to be traveling around Thanksgiving, there was no way around that fact.
Happy Wednesday to all of our travel friends, both near and far! Here are some articles we’ve read from other bloggers (and other sources) that we think you may like, as well, so we’re passing them along.
I’m a list writer (Note from Sharon: OMG, is he a note writer!). In fact, to this day I still use a hard copy packing list when getting ready for a trip.
I’ve started to notice that besides the list of things I need to bring with me, I also need a list of the things I need to do before the trip. This is the stuff you don’t want to remember you haven’t done the night before or, even worse, the day of your vacation.
As our lives get busier, the list keeps getting longer because I keep forgetting to do more or more things.
People are bringing their pets with them virtually everywhere nowadays. I mean, it’s just not unusual anymore to see a smaller pet on a plane in a carry-on bag. And more and more hotels are willing to accept pets, too.
Back when I was moving from New York to Florida in late 2000, the internet was not what it is today and I had a heck of a time researching hotel chains, finding places where my dog, Pippi, a 10-year-old toy/mini poodle, could stay with me. I discovered that virtually all Red Roof Inns were pet-friendly, so that’s the brand where we stayed the night the movers took our stuff and at our overnight “sorta halfway point” in Somewhere, South Carolina.
Nowadays you don’t have to go from hotel website to hotel website – it’s all listed on one convenient spot…
We’re lucky that we get to travel as much as we do. However, a problem this presents is what are we to do with our toy poodle, Dobby, while we’re away from the house? Dobby is a cuddly ball of cute but she does have a mischievous streak in her.
