You know, we all have our own little private daydreams, and while the majortiy of mine involve my entire family being swept away by the Doctor to have adventures in the TARDIS, the more realistic ones often involve a few basic themes. (1) Owning and living in a house, this one becomes more and more prevalent in my thoughts the closer it gets to becomming a reality! (2) The day both of my children are potty trained – I can barely even grasp the idea of being done with diapers until I have grandchildren. It just seems so far removed from my current reality, and yet it will probably happen within the next 12 months. I can’t even handle it. So. Excited. (3) Traveling – I did a lot of traveling as a teen, and I really loved it. Visiting new cultures and meeting all sorts of wonderful people was, to put it simply, fabulous.
I loved living on the islands as a teen (in the Philippines), pretty much everything about it was great. I will always have happy thoughts when I think of Islands, so it’s no surprise that dreaming of visiting somewhere like Puerto Rico is one of my personal favorite little imaginations. The travel, the weather, the beauty, the family fun. It’s all there.
Now, knowing my husband, he’d get all caught up in the historical side of the island and all the rich history San Juan has to offer. I’m not a big fan of history books, but seeing the sites up close and personal is definitely my preferred way of learning. I could get excited about that.
Though for me, the main attraction would have to be the 270 miles of coastline. There’s just something about the beach, being out in the sun on the water, I just love it. The kids do too! They could play for hours in the sand and never get bored. You can definitely Live your own 5-star vacation story in Puerto Rico.
