I develop for a living. That’s about 10 hours a day spent staring at a screen.
My ideal vacation would consist of 2 things. Little technology and even less responsibility.
I haven’t taken a vacation in some time now, my PTO tells me so. This summer or winter I’m hoping to take an all inclusive resort with my dear Kara. From what she’s been selling me, you pay once and then relax. This includes alcohol … hmmm … relax.
The few things I’m hoping to take on this vacation are my wallet (which is really just a business card holder). I’m one of those minimalist freaks. I made the wallet-switch a couple of days ago and I’m more than pleased. My iPhone; it keeps me connected … but it can be turned off. If only more things in life came with an off switch. And some clothes. [Girlfriend assumed].
This is my contribution to a Geeks guide to successful summer vacation. It can be summed up in one sentence. Take as little as possible, that’s it.
Oh wait, plenty of sunscreen. I’m a Mesican but my skin is as white as it comes. Ok, now that’s it.
We’ve been busy looking at several spots [translation: Kara researches resorts about as much as Jay-Z says ‘uhh’].
Were looking for no-kids, relaxing, and affordable; and this is what we found.
- Some kids
- Somewhat relaxing
- Somewhat affordable
- No kids
- Less relaxing – “Vacation? I thought you said adventure!?”
- Somewhat expensive
- No kids – [lots of old people. awkward]
- Very relaxing – I think everyone’s asleep
- Most affordable
Code, I can do. Vacations, not so easy. Help … please?
