Vacation to Somewhere part 3

We finally decided where to go on our big summer vacation. Our short list was Amsterdam, Thailand, Scotland, Bali, Israel and/or Jordan.

We ruled out Amsterdam because there were too many temptations for the men. I don’t like to go around judging people, but I don’t want my travel companion to be baked the whole trip. I wanted to get some cheese in Alkmaar, but it would have been hard to get the others to leave Amsterdam – even for a little while.

We ruled out Thailand because it would have been a pain to get to every place we all wanted to go. If we just went to Bangkok that would be easy, but going to one place then another and another isn’t the most relaxing vacation in the world.

We ruled out Scotland because I was the only one who wanted to go there. There are 4 of us, so it has to be somewhere with more interest.

We ruled out Israel/Jordan because there are just too many problems. I don’t care about the politics, but Ryan & Kevin do. We couldn’t get past it enough to have a good trip.

That left us with Bali. I’m always up for a private villa with a private pool. Indonesia’s been in the news lately with some less than flattering stories, but that was true the first time we went to Bali. None of it ever affected us. Bali seems to be removed from a lot of the general turmoil – or at least they do a good job of keeping it under the surface.

Then Kevin came up with Finland. We all collectively said, “Finland?” I assumed that since no one else liked my Scotland idea, no one would like Kevin’s Finland idea.

No hate, please. There's enough of that in the world already.
