    I've heard rumors that some people actually go on vacation to relax. I've never subscribed to that particular form of vacationing myself but some do.

    Well the only pool I have in the UK is a paddling pool (3 ring inflatable kiddy pool) great for feet soaking when we get our one day of sun a year, but not so good for swimming.

    so Pools are normally a must for me and was planning to carve out sometime by the pool.

    Although now my (10 day) Nov trip has been cancelled I’ll have to fit everything I want to cover over both trips (apart from SWGE :sad:) in the six days I’m there, I will be on the go, go, go!!

    I’ll have to use my trip on Splash Mountain as my relaxing by pools of water time :beach:

    I usually don't embrace vacations with a lot of down time either. I am going to TRY to slow it down a little bit from my 12+ mile a day pace i usually do when I'm solo because it may kill me in the August heat, and I switched my hotels to some places I've never stayed before (contemporary and beach club) so I'd like to enjoy them a bit.

    Sorry to hear about your Nov trip. We have pools here, but at this rate we won't be using them this summer. They are set to open in 2 weeks, and yesterday it was a whopping 45 degrees......o_O Mother nature has lost her mind!

    So sorry to hear about your mom. It's great that she's insisting that you go to the Dreams event!!

    I just finished 15 months of treatment for metastatic triple negative breast cancer (and i'm now NED = no evidence of disease - woo hoo)..
    Anyway, if you have any questions at all please feel free to PM me here or on FB (or i'll send you my email address if you prefer).

    By the way, my mom was 75 when she was diagnosed with stage 3A and went through all the treatment (chemo, radiation, surgery) and is now 92 years old.
    So that should be encouraging!!

    also, there are fantastic groups on facebook for just about every kind of cancer and cancer treatment, where people can ask questions etc.
    I've found them to be very helpful and it doesn't matter where in the world you are as most cancers are treated with rather standard protocols, so you'll usually find the answers to any questions you might have.

    as others have said, i'm not the relaxing kind of vacation sort of person..
    and since we live 10 minutes from the mediterranean, beach vacations aren't our preference (except when we go to eilat, but even then, it's to go hiking, not to lie by the pool)...

    in any case, when we go to WDW, we tend to be in the parks much of the day...
    we might relax - but it's in the parks we do our relaxing....usually in the shows...
    or just absorbing the atmosphere...
    i can lie by a pool or on the beach any day of the year....
    see Mickey? only when i'm in my happiest place on earth..

    thanks!
    it is indeed something to celebrate!!
    we're all going on the disney magic in july followed by 4 days at DLP, so basically 11 days of disney (plus 3 days barcelona before the cruise)..
    There will be 9 of us on that trip: my husband, me, our daughter (Chani - MickeyMouseIsKing) and her husband, and our son, his wife and 3 kids (5,3,1)..

    the 20 years of dreams trip is just Chani and me. She wanted to do something to celebrate with just the two of us, mom and daughter - so this was the perfect choice!!

    i made the reservations for DLP and the disney magic a month after i started chemo....
    all the planning was a great distraction and gave me something to look forward to....

    and now i can't believe that it's almost here....we're almost at the 50 day mark on our big family celebration trip...
    so much to do, so little time!!!
    initially it seemed so very far away, and now it's almost upon us!!! yikes!

    Thanks you for your kind words and advice, I really appreciate that and the story about your mum after that still going strong at 92 that’s amazing.

    Also wow and yay on you being NED, yep that is definitely something that needs celebrating at the event :cool1::cool1:
