    barbie86 :  We are going to Mexico City.  I love planning trips to a point.  I like doing the overview or “rough carpentry” framing part of trip planning.  But when it comes to the detailed day to day itinerary stuff and reservations I procrastinate because it gives me a bit of anxiety.  I hate being tied down.  What if I don’t feel like eating at 8pm two Tuesdays from now?  What if I’m tired of structured sight seeing on Wednesday and don’t feel like going to the ballet, would prefer to just walk the neighborhoods and see what we find?  This is my inner struggle.  

    I did used to overplan trips but more recently I decided that I like an element of surprise or spontaneity so I try to balance.  Mexico City has SO much to see and do, and we only have 6 days.  So… I need to make some tough choices.

    Oh Slovenia is so wonderful.  I think I remember your post with a poll that was between slovenia, the baltics and somewhere else?  You were going with friends?  Ljublana and lake bled?

    barbie86 :  I am most definitely not a type a lol!  I do also make google maps with pins to plan what to do on what day in practical order, and note opening/closing times and such.  I just have anxiety all the while I’m doing it, ha!   It’s the time slotted, advance ticketed events or sights and dinner reserations that I struggle with the most.  

     I visited Slovenia in September (combined with italy & croatia) and that trip is the one that gives me the strongest “ohhhh I wanna go baaaaaack” feelings of any place.  I just love that little region so much.  It was just beautiful in September.  It was probably our best trip to date.

    barbie86 :  They do, although I don’t think on the actual tours, just in the restaurant part.  I think because the craft beer scene is so big here that it would be almost impossible to ban kids. Breweries make up 98% of the restaurants in our area.  I don’t mind kids in breweries.  I just don’t want them with me.

    oceangirl40 :  Breweries are definitely kid/family friendly in my area too.  And there are a lot of them.

    barbie86 :  What if I respond that I’m super fucking jealous of the awesome shit you CFBC ladies are doing? Why would that be ignored?

    Just because I want kids doesn’t mean I can’t live vicariously through CFBC Bees!

    Darling Husband & I spent all day Saturday laying around, playing video games,  & eating good food! And yesterday I went to the symphony. Tonight I can go home after work, make a quick dinner, and then do whatever I want. It’s so nice being able to relax & have time to myself and not have to worry about other responsibilities once I’m off work.

    We’re also starting to look into a Europe trip within the next year! Can’t decide if we want to do London/Paris, Germany/Switzerland or Scotland or Ireland.

    MsPlucky :  

    Hahahaha not sure if other Bees would ignore that.

    At least you admit to being jealous rather than ranting like a lunatic. 

    I will never understand why some Bees with children believe that their diatribes will keep us from talking about our lifestyle. Don’t they have better things to do with their time?

    We went for brunch on Sunday, at a licensed gastro pub, that was adults only. It was so amazing! I had a proper eggs benedict with proper hollandaise and it was so perfect it melted in my mouth. My first one in ages.

    I love good food way too much.

    I agree. If we don’t engage, the derailing Bees will come to realize that posting irrelevant nonsense isn’t going to get them the attention they desperately crave.

    This week, my husband and I planned our anniversary vacation to an adults only resort. We finally chose the resort out of several. 

    It looks like a beautiful oasis in the Caribbean. If we had children, we wouldn’t have any money to take vacations like that.
