Question of the Week

August 11, 2000


This week: What was I thinking?

New York may be a great town for walking, but there are certain common sense rules one should follow, like avoiding walking through Central Park after dark. But then again, when we go on vacation, sometimes we don't always follow the rules, or common sense either. When we're in "holiday mode" somehow we become braver and do things we might not normally do if we were back home. We find ourselves more open to the unusual, and take more chances. A few weeks ago I asked you to call in and tell me about the time on vacation when you did something completely out of the norm and later asked yourself, "What the heck was I thinking?"

Next Week: Vacation is the best medicine

Someone once said pain is inevitable, suffering is optional. I think it was my mechanic after handing me that two page repair bill. Anyway, one of the best ways I know to choose the road of less suffering is to head out of town. Treat yourself to a little R and R. A weekend trip up to the local hot springs, or perhaps a more serious sojourn to the paradise of your choice. Sure you can't run away from your problems, but you can give them the slip sometimes. Put a little distance you and your woes.

Maybe you were recovering from an illness or a broken heart. Or maybe it was just good ol' fashion stress that sent you packing...literally. So where do you run, to chase the blues away? That one secret place that you escape to in order to rejuvenate and make everything right with the world once again.

Maybe it's not only a place but a special ritual that you do when you get there. I want to hear about your best recovery getaway. Tell me why you left in the first place, where you go and how your special place helps to lift you up when you're feeling down.

Send us an email or call 888-SAV-TRAV(888-728-8728) and tell me about your best recovery getaway.
