My husband and I have never officially been on a relaxing getaway, can you believe that? In the 9 years we have been together, the times we went on vacation he has either done an Ironman Triathlon, or we went home to Newfoundland to visit our family and stayed in our own parents houses.
Since we got married in 6 days over the Christmas holidays, not inviting many friends or family, we were thinking of planning a wedding reception later on this summer when we fly back to Newfoundland. We haven’t even thought about cost of plane tickets or the 10+ hour flight, it’s currently put on the back burner until we get sorted out on what we want to do. Nothing has been set in stone, but we do know we’ll be home for a celebration. I love a good party! It’s still going to be kept fairly simple, hosted in my parents back yard.
As much as I love flying home, I can’t help but want to take a relaxing vacation somewhere hot, as a newly-wed with my hubby. We didn’t have a honeymoon, unless you qualify driving across the continent in 3 days in a u-Haul a honeymoon ;)
I’ve been browsing websites for potential honeymoon ideas for the future (definitely won’t be happening in the next year) but it doesn’t hurt to plan in advance. I went onto RCI’s website because I noticed you can build and win your dream vacation. Through RCI’s “Win Your Dream Vacation Sweepstakes,” you have the chance to win a dream vacation worth up to $25,000.
I know being in California we have tons of beaches, but I’ve always wanted to chill out on one in a tropical setting. I bet The Guy would be down with heading to Turks and Caicos with a few spa certificates to royally spoil us to no end. I can only imagine the pampering that would happen.
A total of 40 vacations will be given away in celebration of RCI’s 40th anniversary. I mean, that’s a lot of chances to win. My Mother always told me I have a horseshoe up my butt, so I definitely submitted my entry.
Visit RCI.com/sweeps to enter to win until June 18 – and the more you share your dream vacation through social media, the higher your chances of winning. RCI is the global leader in vacation exchange.
