2020 or 2021-When Should You Travel?
Updated: Aug 20, 2020
Virtual school is back in most of the U.S. and I’m sure we’ll all be stir crazy in a few weeks.
To keep myself sane, I plan vacations in my head every day… I’m happiest when my next trip is on the books - which, of course, it is.
I’m going to Disney World in September. Please don’t travel shame me, it’s my job😊 And, if you follow me on social media, I’ll take you along. This time it’s a girl’s trip. And there’s no denying, I’ll be more than ready when September gets here!
So, look out for the adventures of Beth and Dawn- hopefully it won’t be reminiscent of The Hangover.
Actually, it's, Disney! Disney, Disney baby!
For the remainder of the year, I’m thinking of weekend and day trips for the family. October will be a day trip to visit Sky Top Orchard for some apple picking. That’s been a family tradition for about 10 years.
Also, since we had to postpone our European summer vacation to England and France, I have a lot of Airbnb credit. Viewing the fall colors in a cozy cabin for a weekend in Asheville, NC has been on my mind...sipping a hot toddy or hot chocolate on a cool evening on the Sunset Deck at the Grove Park Inn sounds divine when it’s 90 degrees outside.
November brings my 25th wedding anniversary. What the what?!? How can that be? I only feel 25 years old and don’t look a day over 30. Well, most days. Except when I’ve been virtual schooling. Then I look close to 80.
For our 25th, I don’t mind telling you, I’m struggling. Not with where to travel, just if I should bring our girls along. I’m thinking not, but I do feel a touch guilty. I have a little surprise planned and I’m not sure if my husband reads my blog posts, so I’ll just have to leave it at that for now. Let’s just say it’s somewhere warm and sunny in December. And it may or may not look like this. I’ll keep you posted.
Travel is such a personal thing. Especially right now. While I am ready to travel in 2020 (wearing my mask, washing my hands and social distancing) many people won’t be comfortable until spring/summer of 2021. Domestic travel will be in the forefront of everyone’s minds. Weekend trips to cities in your home state, national parks, and RV’s are already and will continue to be popular.
Most destinations have very generous cancellation policies due to the pandemic. As a matter of fact, Disney’s latest cancellation policy is entitled “book with confidence”. If your plans change, any Disney-imposed change and cancellation fees will be waived up to the date of check-in for reservations with arrivals through December 31, 2020. Can’t get better than that!
There’s no doubt coronavirus has changed our world forever. You must weigh the risk vs reward for yourself and your family. To me, Disney World at 20% capacity sounds pretty awesome.
