I'm a big believer in vacations as a couple. They bring you together, get you away and allow you to reconnect. There's also all the fun of seeing exactly how compatible you are and how easily you can laugh with each other during travel stress, flight delays, packing, traffic - it really brings out the best in us.
We've been throwing around (we being the kid and I - not to be confused with the baby and I) have been throwing around the idea of escaping on a babymoon. One last hooray as just the two of us before guilt and logistics become just too much for a escape as just a couple.
His parents work for an airline company and were gracious enough to offer us a pair of dependent tickets, meaning if the flights are bare and we're willing to not know where we're sitting till we get there we'd get to fly free. But with the holidays coming and having only the beginning of January able to fly after it's looking less and less likely like a far off destination is in our grasp.
So could a stay-cation become a babymoon?
We live in the San Antonio area and fully utilize our immediate surroundings and venues for adventure. But how often do you really leave the stress of home behind, check into a nice hotel get a little pampered and do just whatever you want with no agenda. Never.
What do you think? Stay-cation hotel/spa babymoon worth it or save that money and enjoy home while it's quiet?
