What about Palm Springs? There are some really cool resorts there, and there are national parks close by. Still in state, too!

My Boyfriend or Best Friend has a really hard time with planes… then a doctor prescribed Vallium. Works like magic! He’ll be loopy like a circus clown, but at least he’s not unhappy ๐Ÿ™‚

What about this place? http://www.postranchinn.com/

It’s quite pricey, but it’s also close enough that you could drive there, and secluded enough that you would feel away from home.

It’s also gorgeous!

My mom is so bad with flying.  We cannot even talk about it on the phone.  It’s the F word in our family.


The anxiety leading up to the days prior to even buying the ticket are when she really needs to start her Xanax.  Would he get on Xanax really early on?


Or would you drive somewhere?  Heck we drove 15 HOURS to Canada for our honeymoon, so everything else seems easy to me!  So nice to have your own car.  It cost us proably $350 in gas to go 2500 miles, so much less than airfare and car rental!

Can y’all do that island off the coast of California? I can’t think of the name of it, but cruise ships travel to it and it starts with a B. 

I get travel anxiety. If it’s gonna be a super long distance. And I get anxious about leaving my pets. But I can handle it as long as I don’t have to drive 14 hours or fly that long.

Could you drive to Mexico or take a cruise that leaves from SF area?

OK, so this may be a little too far for him, but it could be a good compromise:


You mentioned Canada. Why not go up to Quebec City? It is still in North America, but it is pretty close (culturally) to Europe. I have been all over Europe, and I tell you, when you are walking through Vieux-Quebec (the old part of town), it really can pass for France! It is absolutely beutiful up there! I spent a summer up there a few years ago. You can also go whale watching. It gorgeous!
