We love to travel and get away with the entire family every year. We take two vacations each a week long a year with RCI. We love the flexibility of being able to go just about anywhere on vacation. I get so excited when planning our family vacation. Did you know just the planning of vacation boosts happiness for eight weeks?
How I Built My Dream Vacation Get Away Through RCI
I was excited to plan a Dream Vacation through RCI Dream Vacation Sweepstakes. It was so easy to select what type of vacation we would love to take. We enjoy going to the beach, so I selected beach. Then there were several choices of what beaches would we would love to visit. I chose Hawaii, since we have never been. My kids would be thrilled to visit Hawaii’s beaches. What would make my dream vacation complete with extras, would be an all inclusive vacation get away. I would love having everything taken care of for vacation, since I normally pack food for us while we travel. Then I was able to choose who I would enjoy spending my vacation with. There are five of us all together, so I chose us five. I confirmed my selections and shared on Facebook and Twitter for additional entries.
Tips For Vacation Planning
I always get excited about the thought of planning our vacation. A vacation planning tip try to plan on your destinations together as a family and get everyone’s vote. We have decided we prefer beach vacations in the spring to warm up and cool weather locations in the middle of summer to cool off from the Texas heat. Set a budget for vacation expenses. Be sure to include activities, restaurants and fun. Always allow for some down time to enjoy your vacation, don’t plan to do too much. We like to schedule an active day then a rest day. There are many deals out there. Do some research and find the best deals for the destination you are headed.
Why It Is Important to Get Away
We believe it is important to create memories with your family. Have new experiences, share laughs and enjoy each others company together as a family. This is what I want my children to hold on to as they grow old and start their own families. First and foremost leave distractions at home, if you can. Focus on what matters most, your family. If you must check email, have a set time to check emails once a day before kids get up or after they are in bed. This allows time for your brain to focus on enjoying your family time together. Less stress and more fun are always a good thing to recharge.
