This summer has been epic for our Daughter. By definition: “Slang. spectacular; very impressive; awesome” Sounds like over kill but I can assure you epic fits. While she has been off on a mission trip to Lesotho and then learning to be a camp counselor her parents have been working. She was globe trotting, we ordered pizza and did not even do the dishes every night.
I had some Southwest airlines credit to use by fall. We booked our Christmas tickets and the price decreased after our booking, by over $70 each for Daughter and I. (Husband travels less so I use the points on his tickets and IF I have to pay I do so on my account to earn more points.) With Southwest you can re-book and either get a credit or the points back in your account if the price drops. The credit is good for one year.
Husband was going on a guys fishing trip for almost a week so that gave us girls a guilt free travel pass. So in my mind I had a few places to check out in Florida, Seattle or even back to San Antonio for our girls weekend. I figured let Daughter choose where she wants to go, maybe some place I am not even thinking of going? The requirements were the location needs to be on a Southwest airlines route and reasonable cost. Has either Holiday Inn or Club Carlson hotels, and I need to travel from my home airport to get there. And the sticking point was it had to be someplace that Dad really is not in a hurry to visit.
So she thought for a morning. Asked a few questions and kept on thinking. Where did she pick? (I will be honest and say I really did not see this coming.) Savannah, GA.
That is what happens when you travel without your child, you end up going back to places with them. Husband and I were here in 2014 for our anniversary, alone. It was fun but I was in no hurry to go back. Plus August is HOT! I was not that excited but she sure was! A long girls weekend in Savannah and throwing in Charleston for good measure.
