This year I've hopscotched across Ontario and the United States more than I'd originally planned, and those trips have been absolutely amazing. However, there's a big difference between a trip and a vacation. A trip, while amazing in its own way, is filled with a lot of hustle and movement, a whirlwind tour of seeing a lot of things in a short timespan. A vacation on the other hand, is exactly like Jamaica 2017. M and I flew to Runaway Bay for an entire week of doing nothing but laying on the beach, reading, drinking cold beer and pina coladas, and petting the stray cats that roamed outside the breakfast buffet.
