I think vacations should be taken slow.. like in S-L-O-W motion. That’s the only way you actually enjoy every second of it. I don’t like people who rush while on vacations – rush to wake up early, rush to go sightseeing, and then rush to go to another tourist destination..!! But I am not at all like that. I like to wake up at my own time (like at 8 or 8:30 am) and then have breakfast and shower by 10. Enjoy an early morning walk, plan for the day, select a place to spend the day, and then just enjoy being there.. enjoy the local food, the weather, the break from the usual monotonous life. That’s ‘my’ kind of vacation. Everything happens in slow motion and I love it that way. Even though I may not be able to visit ‘all’ the tourist attractions in that area, I never regret it! I simply like to enjoy my ‘time out’, the ‘I-have-nothing-to-do’ feeling and just being away from the tensions of life! You see what I mean?
On that note, we went to the visit the Niagara Falls this weekend. And I am amazed as how beautiful nature can be! Speechless.
