Day dreaming today, wishing I was packing my bags and heading somewhere exotic. If only. It will happen again one day. It doesn’t even have to be international. For example, I haven’t been to New York City since 1983. That is really hard to believe. Maybe it is time to go back for a visit.

We do live in one of the top destinations in the US, San Diego. It is easy to forget all that it offers. Sometimes when you live in paradise you don’t see it. I was looking for an event last weekend and found so many I didn’t even know where to start.

One year for the San Diego Padres baseball season opener, we stayed at a boutique hotel in downtown San Diego. It was very fun to be able to walk to the ballpark, see a great game and then walk back to spend the night at a very nice hotel. The next day we went to the zoo and other tourist things. It was a lot of fun.

And if you don’t fly around the world to your destination, but just stay in town you won’t get jet lag. Or have to deal with currency exchange or language barriers. So there are some advantages to a stay-cation.

But when I am day dreaming, something Italian always seems to be the main theme.

Staying home or going international be sure to get out and enjoy.
