We're getting ready for a road trip ~ yay! At the beginning of 2009, G and I sat down with our day planners to schedule some R & R time. We don't do a lot of major vacations, but we usually try to have a pretty good week-long trip every year or two. I've been itching to get away to somewhere tropical. But as we discussed our options, we decided we could either blow our whole vacation budget for the year on one big one, or take 4 or 5 minis. We opted for several 3-4 night minis so we would have more getaways to look forward to throughout the year. Our second such trip is approaching, and in preparation for it we bought a GPS a few days ago. I'm SO EXCITED about all it can do! I played with it for a couple of hours, and wanted to show you how accesible this little gadget will make my daily cups of joe while on the road.
How great is that? The complete list shows all kinds of coffee shops, including the local diners, which we love to check out on these trips. And of course it then routes us right to their doorstep. If we want Italian food, we can touch the screen and get a complete list of Italian restaurants in the area. When we feel like stopping for ice cream, we can get a list, complete with address and phone numbers, of all the mom & pop shops. If we want to do some antique shopping (if ?!) a simple touch will bring those up too. Little things make me happy I guess. We'll be leaving soon, so I may not blog again until we return. Have a wonderful week!
