Too bad I haven't experienced any of this in almost four years. I've been itching to get out of the city for a couple days, a week, whatever, but I keep pushing it back. It's been:
"Oh, I should focus on grad school this year."
"I have to keep job searching."
"I'm too busy with work."
"No, I don't want to go to D.R. for the millionth time, thanks." (I'm a firm believer that the world's just too huge to be making so many repeat visits...but I have been toying with Punta Cana since I've never been there.)
And now, "Crap. I'm broke."
You see, I have found deals online. Just one problem...they're all based on double occupancies!! Argh! What if you want to jet-set completely and utterly sola? What if the plan is to go where nobody knows your name, lay out on the beach and dig your toes into the sand? Geez, I didn't know it was so expensive to be a loner.
So we'll see what I end up doing. For now, I'll keep looking through Travelzoo and salivate over pictures like these:
