Working to a Getaway Trip

I made a vow to take at least one vacation in the year 2016. I’m constantly working throughout the year and never have a chance to take some time off and just relax. In order to keep my vow, I needed money to pay for a vacation. I always wanted to go to Hawaii, so I looked at the cost of airline and hotel fees for a month vacation in Hawaii. With that total in mind, I used Quicken 2016 to figure out the best way to save enough money to pay for the trip.

I’ve created a plan that will help me get to Hawaii by the summer. Each month a little bit of my income goes toward the trip fund, and right now I’m half way to my goal. It’s a little ironic that in order to take the vacation to get away from work, I have to do more work. I can speed up the process by getting a second job or finding some other way to get more money, but I don’t want to put myself through that kind of stress for a vacation. I’d rather just use the plan I have now and save my energy.

I can’t wait to get to the Hawaiian islands. The ocean will be such a lovely sight to see, and the beaches will be great to sit on and swim on. I’ve seen lots of pictures of the volcanoes in the area, and I would love to see some of them up close. I wonder if those legends about taking rocks from island are true. I doubt a curse would exist, but I don’t want to take my chances. I’m really excited about all of the delicious Hawaiian food that I’ll get to eat. I’m going to gain a lot of weight.
