Spent a week in Hong Kong and had a blast. I had my wife and kid with me and spent some time in Disney.
I wont forget how my kid's eyes lit up during the afternoon parade.
Truly a once in a lifetime experience and my family was lucky to have been there. We had planned and saved for months and mostly paid everything in cash or had the cash to pay off the credit cards immediately.
Now, what made the vacation doubly satisfying to me was that last statement- that we had saved and paid this off right after because we had planned for it so well.
I can tell you what a satisfying feeling that was that you didnt have to worry and how much of a financial stress releif that was.
For you who are planning vacations as well, I suggest to do the same. Plan and save in advance and make sure it all fits in your budget. The rewards on your peace of mind enhance the vacation bliss immeasurably.
