Next trip booked = happy me

Only those on this forum would understand how excited I am. We were going to skip our annual family trip to North next winter, as hubby and I are planning to celebrate our 20th in Anguilla without the kids. I've been in mourning and constantly checking the availability of the villa we usually rent, seeing the weeks get booked.

Hubby decided we can do both!! So there was one week left in March that wasn't book, which coincidentally matches my oldest son's school vacation, so we will be back. The only drawback is to save money we are not going to stay on Provo this year, which means we will have to make the dreaded Saturday departure. But for direct flights both ways, and a week in paradise, it is worth it!! So happy that I will have something to get me through our dreadful winter next year.

Thanks all! I am so very happy and lucky!! It's funny how a little island chain can do that to a person.

Funny Joe...that is the exact song I had in my head when hubby told me he booked the tickets and villa. We will be there the week of March 21st. Maybe we will see you walking the beach or hanging on pumpkin bluff? We need to make the trek up to our little slice of the future this time. Maybe we can find a nice rock and make some patio furniture too :)

I LOVE feeling the passion that you have for North! We really enjoyed the week that we spent there!

So much of this forum is about Provo, which of course makes sense since it's the main tourist island for TCI.

BUT....TCI has SO much more to offer than Provo! I love to continue to explore it all! North, Middle, GT and SC...all are wonderful in their own unique ways!

Thanks Maca! It truly is my happy place. I feel like I can truly relax when I am there. Maybe because it is so natural and "real." Although my husband would like to see the island develop more (primarily to help the price of real estate) I would love to have it stay the same. There aren't many places left where nature is left to be just as it is supposed to be --- beautiful. And my boys feel the same way. They were so bummed when we told them we wouldn't be going next year. Well you should have heard them today. They are already counting down the months.

I would love to explore GT and SC someday. Actually after our trip last year I was researching Salt Cay, but I just didn't know if it would be feasible to stay there with my 3 rambunctious boys :) Someday we will go.
