We have A LOT of trips coming up. All of them are in 2017, so earlier this summer, between booking flights for Hawaii in January and planning our itinerary through Germany next May I had a peek at the prices for flights out to Colorado over Labor Day. As regular 9-5ers, my husband Curtis and I find that days off more than cost are the limiting factor on our travel experiences, so I always try to make use of long weekends as a way to garner more vacation days. Labor Day has always been a travel day for us--in the past that has included Washington and Oregon, Italy, and Germany.
Why Colorado, you ask? My mom recently moved to Longmont, and I was anxious to visit her. I figured there would be lots of things for us to see and do, including visiting one of our good friends who lives in Boulder. Looking back on our trip, Colorado ranks high on the list of my favorite places we've visited. I think the biggest reason for this is that something in me just loves mountains--the same way something there is that doesn't love a wall. It's innate.
