Ahoy GEMs!

Hope everybody is well. In case you didn’t know, the entire Good Enough Mother team is getting a little R&R aboard the Disney Dream this week, the newest and largest ship in the Disney fleet.  I’m going to tell you now this ship is B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L! We are so thankful to have this time together and to escape the snow and cold of New York.

The fact that this trip is so wonderful got me thinking about the polar opposite, bad getaways.

I can say with a fair degree of certainty, that I have never had a bad vacation. That doesn’t mean that some trips have not been better than others. The year I took the family on a Caribbean Cruise that we booked last minute (so we got a great deal) and paid for air fare (from NY to Puerto Rico) using miles, was among the best. It didn’t cost too much and because of that, it was very relaxing.

But then there was the time we went to Hilton Head, South Carolina with another family. That would have been fine as they were good friends, but it was two families in one small apartment and the weather sucked. It was stressful and cold and exhausting. I have no pictures of that week, only the ones seared into my memory!

So today’s GEM debate is simple:

What’s the BEST and the WORST holiday you’ve ever taken – and why!

Sound off everyone – I can’t wait to hear your stories…
