Chit Chat: Vacation Personality
There are few words that sound sweeter to me than the word vacation. Everyone I know looks forward to getting away from reality for a few days me included.
There are a lot of different types of vacations: relaxation, adventures, family fun, etc. I tend to be someone who gets stressed often and who worries about everything so it would make perfect sense if I planned vacations around relaxation but that is totally not the case.
On most days my life is relatively mundane. I wake up at 5 am, go to work, get home around 6:30 or 7, make dinner, hopefully carve out a little time for blogging, and then go to bed so I can repeat in the morning. When on vacation I go in with the mindset that I can rest later and that I want to fit in everything possible during the next few days. I want to explore, I want to see, I want to eat at new interesting places, all the things that I cannot do at home (like feed flamingos).
Almost every time I visit NYC I sleep less than 4 hours a night (there is just so much to do). Even when taking beach vacations I am constantly on the go. I am not someone who just wants to sit still enjoy the sun and the sounds of the waves. I do this for about 15 minutes at a time and then I am ready to continue exploring the beach or splashing in the water.
How do you vacation? What types of activities do you look forward to?
