Our Vacation Is All Planned! And Now……We Wait

I’m sure I’m not the only one out there who feels that the planning of a vacation is almost, or sometimes more exciting than going on the trip itself. There’s so much more that’s involved with setting up the perfect trip. Even more so if you’re planning a trip using points and miles.

I’ve been planning our trip to Germany for close to a year and I’ve hit a milestone. All of our major travel plans are set. The last one happened earlier this week when the message I’d been hoping for showed up in my email at 11:42 PM (while I was asleep)

Why You Should Avoid Going To A Hotel Right After It Opens

First!

There’s something in all of us that makes us want to be the first one to do something. It’s human nature, or whatever. The feeling you get knowing you’re the first person to see something, or stay somewhere, or eat somewhere or just to travel to an exotic destination.

It’s for the same reason that people love to go to, and read about, brand new things. New hotels. New restaurants. New bars. New theme park lands and new cruise ships.

If you’re a regular traveler and don’t need to go somewhere right when it opens, do yourself a favor and don’t. Leave that stuff to the travel bloggers who love to go to and write about these events, regardless of if they’re good or bad. The easiest location to avoid around a grand opening is a hotel because you’re usually booking before the opening date and there’s some notice that the location is not yet finished during the process.
