Are you planning on traveling during the Christmas and New Year holidays? Perhaps to visit relatives? Maybe a family vacation? Perhaps a couples getaway? Even a solo trip? Could be you aren't going anywhere. People are coming to visit you. So what are your travel plans?

i was planning to go on a solo trip to Hongkong but i guess that was a very vague plan because when i thought about it, i'm not really that brave enough to go alone on a trip out of the country. ^__^;; and then i realized, i can't shock my pocket and my bank account with a huge expenses like that. LOL so i postponed it for the next year, summer, and i'll be going with my officemate and her daughter. ^__^ it will be either in Hongkong or Thailand. i just hope it will push through because i have been dreaming of going out of the country for years! LOL oh yeah, and then there is the sort of reunion party my friends and i are planning. it is still not a concrete plan but i'm hoping it will push through because i know it would be so much fun. ^__^ happy holidays jumpinjack! and belated Thanksgiving to you. ^__^

Oh come on secretbear. I don't think you give yourself enough credit. I'm sure if you went alone you would be fine. Would you have as much fun being alone? No probably not. I totally understand the ouch it can put on your pocket. So putting the trip off until later when the three of you can go sounds great. I would love to see Hong Kong. Not too sure about Thailand. I sure hope your party with friends happens. Those are what make great memories. Happy Holidays secretbear! I will be sending them again as we get closer. ‹(°¿°)›

well, i have been away from home before, like away to another island but within the country, but to another country? its different. its more far away. i guess if it was a fluent english-speaking country, it would be easier for me to go alone. but then, its Hongkong/Thailand. i don't know how to speak Chinese or whatever is their language. ^__^;; and people are different there. whereas here in our country, people are more or less the same as me. ^__^ anyway.. our reunion went fine and we had a blast even if we were all tired when we all got home. it was a chance of a lifetime so all of us took it. ^__^ i'm sure gonna miss them. Happy New Year jumpinjack!

As Willie Nelson put it. "On the road again." That is, of course, if you're driving. Otherwise it might be. "In the air again" or perhaps "On the train again." Just kidding. Have loads of fun and folly. ‹(°¿°)›

Family trips always sound good to me. No matter where you all end up hopefully it will be a splendid and memorable trip. Hey one last thing. Did they pass the law asking or banning Santa not to say Ho, ho ho.? ‹(°¿°)›

Hi,there! I don't think I'll travel during the Christmas time cause I don't have a very long holiday. But I'll visit my relatives during the new year holidays.We'll get together and chat with each other. I'll also meet some friends who'll come back from other places:) We haven't seen each other for a long time so I'm sure that'll be very interesting and nice.LOL! Thanks for the discussion.How about you? Have you got any plans? Best wishes and have a nice day!

Hey! Even though you don't have a long holiday, it sounds like it's going to be very full and fun. It's great to see and spend time with family and/or friends you don't see much. Ah. I will do one of two things. I have no family where I currently live, so it will either be time spent with friends or I will make a surprise visit to my two sisters who live across the country. I haven't decided yet. ‹(°¿°)›

We used when we were still kids, we go to my father's parent's house and then spend the holiday seasons there. But now where all grown up, we all have diferent responsibilities to tend to so we just stay home and wait for visitors to come. We expect our godchildren to visit here, to receive give gifts and presents from us. Then maybe spend a late night party after Christmas eve, either at home or from a friend's home. I only go out of the house if ever I don't have any gift to share with others, I hide and then resurface after the season has ended!LoL

Yeah responsibilities change as we get older. Priorities and circumstances too. Sounds like your house is "the" place to be now. I'll have to try that hiding until after the season myself. LOL ‹(°¿°)›

I would LOVE to travel. BUT the family that we do spend time with for the holidays happens to live within a 15 mile radius of home. SOOOO we are stuck sticking around here. Maybe in a few years we will say forget the family gatherings and lets take a mini vaccation somewhere nice. Just to get away. I believe we are spending most of Christmas day at home, then visiting our parents in the evenings. But nothing is set in stone yet. It just dosent seem like the holidays yet.

Yeah nothing ever seems set in stone around this time of year. That get away you mentioned will happen soon enough when the time is right. You sure will appreciate it then. Believe me, I and so many others remember our first "break away" from a family gathering. ‹(°¿°)›

We're staying home. Luckily we live in the same town as most of our family so we do not have to travel. But even if we did we would most likely be staying home because of how expensive it is.

That's great. I grew up that way but now we are spread out all over the country, ugh. Yeah the price of traveling right now just isn't worth the blood money it costs. Another ugh. lol ‹(°¿°)›

We're not going anywhere. Honestly I like to celebrate the holidays at home. If anyone from our families want to come here they are welcome but to deal with the traffic and the stress of lugging the kids somewhere for the holidays just makes it stressful. I'd rather travel when things are quiet and get to enjoy it.

Oh yes indeed. I hear you loud and clear. If it isn't necessary to go through all that, then by all means let others who have a lighter load come to you. ‹(°¿°)›
