Travel identity crisis
I thought we were going to Paris for our honeymoon, I really, really did. But a few days ago, we were looking at my parent's timeshare book and all the awesome places we can visit, and friends -- we have been swayed.
Now our thoughts are floating to Hawaii, Thailand, Spain and more.
Peter and I like to say to each other, "Whatever we decide, it will feel like the right thing." We say this about a lot of things, like whether we should have sushi or Thai, go skiing Saturday or Sunday, look for a new apartment or stay put, and the answer is usually, "Whatever we decide, it will feel like the right thing." It's a surprisingly reassuring answer. You can do no wrong!
The problem was, we could not decide. The options were too good, and they all felt like the right thing. I can imagine a fantastic vacation in all of those places. They all feel like the right thing. So we put in a bid for Spain, France, and Hawaii resorts, and we may add more to the list. Fate will decide for us! Scary, but kind of fun, right?
