Just now, and I mean minutes ago, Jie and I finally nailed down our Spring Break plans. During my research I became enamored with Vieques, a small island off of Puerto Rico that used to be the site of Naval weapons testing. That ended several years ago, but the island is still relatively un-touristy and very relaxed. There is only one sizable resort on the island, a Wyndham, along with many small hotels, hostels, and B&B's. Jie and I will be staying 6 nights at a B&B over Spring Break, which sounds incredibly relaxing and the perfect remedy to the Boston winter. This will be a pretty pricey trip, but it's the first real vacation that we've taken on our own since our 4 nights in Hawaii as part of our honeymoon two years ago.
Just as everything was falling into place we hit a bump in the road that has been typical of the vacation planning process. Literally as we went to book the airfare American raised the prices and we ended up paying $100 more than we thought we would. Ah well, I know it will be worth it after two more months of winter. Did I mention it's 19 degrees today in Boston?
