You Rule

My friend just surprised her husband with a family get away for his birthday. One rule: No cell phones. I think some rules were just made to be broken. For example, we all know (as a general rule), it is not a good idea to speak to strangers. I find people can’t wait to talk to me when I am on vacation. Strangers start conversations at the airport, in cabs, at restaurants, on the street. It’s as if there were a rule for strangers to speak to me when I travel. I have to admit though, I have met some very wonderful and interesting people that way. There are other “rules” people bend while vacationing. For example, indulging in dessert. After all, it is vacation so why not enjoy that apple pie? Not that there is a no hat rule, but people sure do sport lots of floppy hats on vacation that most likely collect dust at home. As for my friend’s vacation? She called me on her cell every day to tell me what a good time she was having 🙂

What’s your rule that gets broken when you travel?

    That’s funny she called you everyday Jill, Heck I would have to call my sister who is my best friend everyday as well haha. Sounds like rules are made to be broken. I have broken of few of them you posted like try and eat like I do at home but you know your going to eat breakfast, lunch and dinner including those desserts when you are on vacation. I don’t eat like that at home but I do when I go on vacation 🙂

    • Hi Lisa! Thanks for sharing your “rule breakers”. I definitely find myself breaking my no dessert rule, after all it is vacation 🙂 As for calling friends and sisters -, as you said some rules are made to be broken.

  2. Hi Kirsten. I think that’s a great “rule” and certainly makes a vacation more of a vacation. I try to do that too- when I get away I do my best to “disconnect” myself from the computer and concentrate on enjoying the vacation!
