Image source: I ‘ve been going to write about my February vacation for a long time. I’ll post more about my vacation later. The idea of a taking a vacation occurred to me in December 2017. I decided I would treat myself to a vacation for the first time in 20 years as a Christmas present to myself. I started looking on the internet for vacations and travel agencies. One of the local radio stations repeatedly advertised a travel agency. I looked the agency up on the internet and browsed through the pre-planned  vacation packages. There were some great vacation ideas, but none that really interested me, many of the plans were too expensive, so I decided to plan my vacation using their online tools.
