I have a saying “Family Travel is NO Vacation”. Now a Girlfriend’s Getaway? That’s something else entirely. Here’s why:
1. Girlfriends are always up for adventure.
A last minute cruise to nowhere? Why not. No need to make lists, or worse, budgets, it doesn’t even have to make sense. There doesn’t need to be a purpose to the trip or an “action plan” – just shoe packing
2. Girlfriends understand that champagne and doughnuts can absolutely be considered a complete meal.
No need to make reservations at some restaurant that you had to research. Actually, the mini-bar can double as a restaurant. Girlfriends understand that sometimes a Diet Coke and Doritos are totally worth $10.
3. Girlfriends are happy to go at your pace, fast, slow, whatever.
No need to push yourself to prove a point. Also, they understand that the most important part of any vacation is the photos. If they’re an awesome friend, they’ll even Vine you. I skied with my buddy Kimberly Blaine this year, she even packs a camera that smooths out all the wrinkles, seriously, that exists. Check her out at The Go To Mom.
4. There are some things only girlfriends get.
Yes “Hooray for Boobies” is hilarious and perfectly acceptable to wear for school pick up. Also, the best music ever made was in the 1980’s by big hair bands. Contrary to Mr. Evans belief, mothers of four CAN drink jello shots and function the next day thank you very much.
Also, who else would be willing to take a picture of you trying to lick Ben Affleck and find it as hilarious as you do?
5. Girlfriends understand that flirting with the cute bartender does not mean your marriage or relationship is in jeopardy.
it means you’re having fun, AND you might get a free drink. No judgy. These photos are from my review of the new Celebrity Cruise ship The Reflection.
This post was sponsored by all of my fabulous girlfriends pictured and not who have made my life extraordinary by sharing the best and worst adventures. And to that I say – Hooray for Boobies!
