Have you ever faced the struggle of having to choose among things you equally like? Simple or more complex things, like which pair of shoes do you rock for a night out or which venue do you book for your wedding reception? Which ice cream flavor should you eat or which hotel should you stay in on your honeymoon? Or even deciding on which college to attend or what to invest your trustfund in.
If yes, then I feel you!!! Oh YES, I can totally relate.
If you’ve read my New Year’s resolution, you’ll see that in my list I’ve written, among others: “Visit an exotic destination”. I wish I was more specific, it’d save me the trouble now… I have to choose WHERE TO.
That is probably one of the most difficult decisions ever and don’t you dare laugh at me! The world is full of amazing and beautiful places and due to my partner’s profession we can rarely find time to squeeze in a 4 day vacation together. And I wouldn’t want to go on my first exotic trip without him.
So what I do know is that we can go this November. And the first thing I did was to check which exotic places have nice weather at that time. And the list is huge…
- Tahiti – expensive, over water bungalows (yes please), amazing beaches
- Maldives – same as above with the difference that they are slowly sinking!
- Mauritius – again.. resorts, beaches, serenity, peace of mind
- Sri Lanka – tea, elephant sanctuary, dolphins and leopards
- Mexico – tequila, mexican food, siesta, hakuna matata
- Seychelles – expensive, beaches to die for
- Kenya – safari, giraffes, elephant sanctuary <3
- Thailand – cheap, thai food, monkeys, endless massages and nice beaches
- Cuba – cigars, rum, vintage cars, the Caribbean
- Bali – scuba diving, amazing resorts, beaches and temples
See my point? How can I choose?
Ok, let’s say the price factor. But for a once in a lifetime trip, that isn’t as important, is it? I mean the hotel&ticket package deals from the agencies are quite similar in price so then the only thing left to pay for are the activities! 100euro up or down for a trip like that is just not a strong argument.
And don’t ask me: “what would you like to see the most?” because that is exactly my problem. I want to see everything. I want to visit all the destinations mentioned above and much more. But a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step… so I’ll ask you: What should my next step be?
Those of you who have visited any of the destinations above, please leave a comment, send me an email, a message, a letter, even a homing pigeon!! Your help will be much appreciated
