I think about a week ago I pretty much impulsively decided that we needed to go see my sister. See, she lives in Jacksonville, FL which is 8 hours away from us so it's not a short drive. And I hate long car rides. And my husband is kind of crazed with work right now so he can only get away for a few days. In the past we've stayed with her when we visited because she was in a spacious 3 bedroom apartment (with roommates). Well, the roommate are gone and she's moving this week to a (I'm sure quite nice but considerably smaller) 1 bedroom apartment. There was only one thing to do...
...book a plane ticket and a hotel.
You know what that means. VACATION TIME. I love vacations. I love hotels. I'll go stay in a hotel in the town we live in. (I've done it. Recommend it. You should do it, too.) I love the little mini bottles of stuff they give you. I love all the little notepads and pens they leave around the room. I love the smell. I love getting Starbucks in the airport while I wait for my bags. I love shopping in a new city (shocker). I love finding new restaurants. I COULD GO ON AND ON. Let's look at some pictures.
Here's where we're staying:
And here, from what I've found is Jacksonville's best shopping:
That really doesn't even begin to cover it, but I can't find pictures to do it justice. It's the St. Johns Town Center and it's massive and amazing and I love it.
So that's what I'm looking forward to! Do you like to travel? What do you love about vacations? Got any travel tips you want to share? Let me know :)
