I would have gone down to reception in my robe and slippers
I can't decide if it's sweet or sinister

i travel even further than you - i live in Israel.

the truth is, i used to plan further out, when the kids were younger and i knew everyone's schedule, but it's much harder now!!

so for many years now, it's been much more spontaneous...

but my nephew in detroit is getting married next september - so wanted to lock in the flights now....and since we have to be in the US in september, that of course means we HAVE to visit the mouse...right?

non-stop Tel Aviv-NYC is 13 hours flying west and about 11 hours flying east (that tail wind certainly helps!!)...

and then about a 3 to 4 hour layover in NYC (depending on the connection) and then NYC to orlando.

We've done it other ways in the past, but they all work out about the same in terms of hours (sometimes TA-newark then down to MCO, sometimes TA-Toronto, then down to MCO, sometimes TA-Atlanta, then down)..

for the past many years, we've been flying business, but the prices have gotten so bad, i booked us into economy for next year (and i'm flying economy in october)

i just can't justify the stratospheric price of business...
and with the money i'm saving, we booked a nice room on the Oasis of the Seas, and i still have thousands left over to spend on something else!!

we just discussed it and we've decided no mouse, just a 7 night cruise and just the two of us....

that's a major major first...

the very first time ever we're going on a solo vacation sans kids...
but the kids are all grown up and married and while i know they'll want to go with us (as they did last august), we've decided it will be just us..

oh....and i just realized....it will be our 35th wedding anniversary!!
how perfect is that???

the two of us on the Oasis together!!! i can't wait...
so how many days till we leave???????????????
