Looking Ahead to Vacation Season

Part of the appeal of leading the dot com lifestyle is that I am not bound to a single location or a single schedule. This added flexibility allows me to continue running my freelance writing business from just about anywhere I have a reliable Internet connection. That’s why I’ve found that many of my vacations in recent years have become working holidays. For instance, I was in Las Vegas in January for the Consumer Electronics show.

To some people, this may sound counter to approaching a healthy life-work balance and there may certainly be some truth to that. I don’t think I’ve had a true holiday for some time now, so it might not be a bad idea to start searching for some good vacation deals. At some point, it pays to unplug completely from the matrix, leaving work behind if only for a few days at a time.

I’ve had the opportunity to go on a cruise or two, but I have not yet experienced the all-inclusive resort just yet. One of the biggest names in this realm is Club Med and while they may not be the cheapest option for a tropical vacation, they do offer some of the best all-inclusive resorts on the planet. It’d be nice to relax next to the pool with an ice-cold drink, wouldn’t you say?

Looking Ahead to Vacation Season

While I can certainly appreciate some well-deserved rest and relaxation, I always feel compelled to do something when I am on holidays. I want to see the attractions and make the most of what the destination has to offer. Some people will stick to the resort, but it is worth noting that organizations like Club Med offer various activities as well.

For instance, you can consider some of the horseback riding vacations listed above. Riding a horse around in Morocco or Indonesia would be quite different than my experience at Sea to Sky Stables, that’s for sure.

I don’t have any plans to hit up an all-inclusive resort this year — my main trip will likely be to Los Angeles for E3 Expo 2010 — but it is something that I want to add to my international travel bucket list. Freelancers need time to unwind too, you know.
