For everyone that has managed a dream vacation in the past, do you have any insight on how to save money on that dream vacation? A particular website or vendor? Especially since we can only go when everyone else can, breaks & summer. Thank you, any insight is appreciated. 🙂

Thank you for your excellent tips, your trips sound absolutely amazing!!!

I don't know how teachers can afford or save money to go on vacations outside of the country. I am a single parent so all my traveling is within the states. We went to Rehoboth beach Delwaware and Ocean City Maryland. I am also going to Hockinghills in August. But my Dream Vacation would be to go to Australia.

We are going to Florida.

Not going anywhere this summer. Would like to go to Israel some day.

like

Agreed. I found Israel the perfect blend of three vacations in one! I love ancient history, so touring Roman roads and Petra (in Jordan) was incredible. “Swimming “ in the Dead Sea and touring gorgeous places like Jericho was relaxing. And of course, walking where Jesus walked enriched my faith like nothing I can explain. I always felt safe and perfectly at peace there. Talking to locals in Jerusalem and Jericho was enlightening—they love the US for our support and continue to be one of our strongest allies. They have the best military and police forces in the world, so they are a powerful ally to have! And the food is amazing! I would buy a vacation home there if I could!

Australia or Japan is my ultimate dream vacation, but staying home this summer

Does anyone else find it difficult to ask for time off?

It’s hard because other associates in my department haven’t really taken any time off either (or it has been a day or two sporadically). Would really love to take some days over Christmas to recharge but I’m nervous about perception.

Not proud of it, but I was hooking up with a co-worker/friend pre-COVID. I left the state when wfh started and we still talk every day, but nothing romantic.
