When Sara and I got married we went on a 5 day honeymoon to Cancun, Mexico. We relaxed, we explored, we had adventures. However, that was nine year ago and we haven’t had a vacation like that since. We do go on vacation or trips every year, but most of the time it is visiting family. Don’t get me wrong, we LOVE our family and visiting with them is top priority. However, we NEED a serious vacation. Just the two of us. Away. So we can relax, explore and have adventures.
Two springs ago I switched my credit card over to a rewards card and then that summer I spent a ridiculous amount of money for church expenses. I personally financed (well, kind of… I was reimbursed every penny) a VBS for over 1000 kids and bought plane tickets for over 40 people to fly from DFW to Los Angeles. The result? Lots and lots of points on my credit card. Last fall Sara and I began talking about going on a vacation the following Spring with all the points we had accumulated. Since I was let go just a few months later and securing a job was higher priority than vacation planning, our trip was set aside.
Then just a few weeks ago we started talking seriously again about where we wanted to go. We figured it would be a late summer, early fall trip. Our anniversary was last week and out outdoor plans ended up getting rained out. So we went to a local bookstore and began planning our vacation. We had about 12 possible locations/trips and at the end of two hours we had it narrowed down to three and they are three good ones. Below are pictures of the three possible vacation locations. I think Sara and I have pretty much picked out where we are going to go, but just for fun, which one looks like your perfect vacation spot? Bonus points if you can name the locations!

It’s gonna be fun! Can’t wait.
Okay – #1 is Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park in Utah; #3 is Banff Springs in Canada (my sister has vacationed there twice and LOVES it); #2 is the Coastal Highway of California? I think!
So, my vote is #2, where ever that is. I love oceans and mountains as well. My mansion in Heaven is going to have water in front and mountains behind! Perfect!
Where ever you two go, you’ll have a blast!
If your air points ever get you as far as New Zealand then it’s got to be the ultimate destination! The most beautiful country in the world!
I love the beach but if you have never been to location 3 it is probably the most beautiful place I have ever seen.
They all appear to be outstanding; however, my husband and I love the beach and mountains so my pick would be #2. It reminds me of Monterey Bay/Carmel/Pebble Beach area on the Pacific Coast Highway. We celebrated our 9th anniversary last year in Monterey Bay at the SpinDrift and it was off the charts! It was very romantic and very private. We had a Bay front suite with a fireplace. The view was splendid and the night view was spectacular. We loved it some much that we promised each other that this would be “our” annual trip….our loveboat excursion! Wherever it is you guys go it will be great because you are together and that’s all that really matters anyway!
Doesn’t matter to me where you go as long as we get to take care of Titus! 🙂
