What Kind of Vacationer Are You?

We all need time to unwind.  Put the daily stresses of work and writing aside and relax.  Refuel our imaginations.

I’m writing this blog from Las Vegas, where I’m enjoying an anniversary celebration with my husband Patrick.  I love Vegas.  It has so much to offer.  I’ve always loved the excitement of the casinos, relaxing at the spa, the bright lights and shows, afternoons in the pool and romantic dinners with my husband.

My brother, David, on the other hand, is what I call an extreme vacationer.  His idea of a good time is skydiving, hiking out of the Grand Canyon, flying to Fuji to go snorkeling, or traveling deep into the jungle to visit a hidden ruins.

Not my idea of a good time.

So, what kind of vacationer are you?

About Cheryl Yeko

My writing career began when my wonderful husband bought me a Kindle for Christmas and changed my world. I started reading romance novels, and fell in love with them. I decided to write one myself, and disappeared into my room over a long Wisconsin winter and wrote my debut novel, PROTECTING ROSE. I submitted to a few publishing houses and was offered a contract with Soul Mate Publishing, which I quickly accepted. PROTECTING ROSE went on to win the 2012 Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence in the romantic suspense category. Well, I was hooked. Today, I'm a multi-published, award-winning author, and live in Wisconsin with my husband Patrick. I love to read, play piano, and spend time with family and friends. I enjoy novels with fast-paced action and steamy romance, protective alpha men and strong heroines. I belong to several writing groups, including Romance Writers of America (RWA) and Sisters in Crime. I can also be found under the pen name of CiCi Cordelia, with my writing partner and BFF, Char Chaffin.

    Your brother and I would do well on vacation together 🙂

    I like a little of both. My husband and your brother must be related. He’s all about seeing and doing everything possible in that short period of time. Over the years, we’ve had to compromise on our idea of vacation. I think we’ve finally struck a balance.

  3. I’m a combination of both kinds of vacationer. Sometimes I want something exciting–snorkeling or scuba diving near a sunken ship, or hiking to ruins. Even something as simple as camping is fun for me (and I can afford that!)

    But a trip to the beach and lounging by the pool is pretty awesome too.

  4. I always seem to plan vacations around water and excellent food. Adventure to me means luxury reward. Scuba diving followed by a dinner cruise, hot air ballooning followed by champagne and h’ors douerves, river rafting followed by a gourmet barbecue. I do not camp anymore unless someone has an RV and satellite television — oh yeah, and a fully stocked refrigerator. 🙂

  5. My butt being planted in a lounger either at the pool or by the beach in Mexico or Jamaica. Or sitting at the swim up bar. Or shopping for the day in Playa Del Carmen. Or going on a little exploring trip like when we climbed Dunn’s River Falls in Ocho Rios.

    I don’t mind the occasional b-b-q by my own pool either with the family around.

    Donna, I’m with you. That sounds like a perfect vacation!!

    Thanks for stopping by everyone.

  7. I’m a total staycationer. Your brother sounds like he would scare the tar out of me ha ha! 🙂

    We have not done a lot of vacationing, but our trip to Hawaii had to be the best. With our work schedules, and trying to fit everything in to daily life taking time to go camping is one thing we love to do. Not a traditional campground where everyone is lined up a few feet apart. But a conservation area or Provincial park. The sites are huge and private, you can kick back and enjoy the peace and quiet of nature.

    You had me at Hawaii…but you lost me at camping ;>)

    LOL two different ends of the spectrum, Cheryl. Diversity is the spice of life and you do what you can when you can 😉 With four dogs it is hard to get away. We also have a motorhome so that puts a whole new spin on roughing it.
