August Getaway!

If things go as planned, B and I will finally be able to get away for a while. I’m thinking two weeks in Barcelona apartments But with B’s recent hospital leave from work, he has a lot of catching up to do and two weeks away from home would be a tad too long. Barcelona is also halfway across the world from where we’re at, so dream on Mariuca!

Realistically speaking, we’ve decided to look at locations closer to home. I’ve been under a lot of stress lately working on this huge headache of a plight that B and I are facing at the moment and I am at my breaking point. Today, I am fed up to the max, which is why I need to get away and escape this madness! tension

To de-stress, I started doing my research for vacation accommodation. The apartments in Barcelona sure look mighty tempting in terms of rates, location and facilities but like I said earlier, Barcelona is simply not feasible for now.

The particular location we’re looking to visit however seems to offer a wider range of apartments rathe
r than hotels. I’ve never stayed in an apartment while vacationing so I am a little apprehensive about trying it out. Of course there is a first time for everything so I am willing to keep an open mind. Plus, most of the vacation apartment rates are cheaper than hotels so that’s another pull factor towards apartments. Smiley

Of course I’ll be doing more research before we decide on anything. Research is a must and is enjoyable too when it comes to hotel or apartment hunting for vacations. I especially like reading guest reviews. They’re extremely helpful in helping fickle-minded me narrow down my choices to one that suits our needs when vacationing.

So a vacation in August is what I am hoping for. I don’t care where we’re going or for how long. All I know is that I need to get away and I am aiming for August. Speaking of August, which is also my birthday month, I am desperately trying to shed a few pounds (hoping for ten but will still be happy with five) in time for my birthday. I refuse to look like a chubby wifey clown this birthday. I have 26 days to go so wish me luck!
