Vacationing Childfree

My vacation with my husband this week has reminded me again just how great childfree travel is. To remind all of you the same, here is a list of just a few things we have done together this week -- all of which would have been impossible with small children.

-Enjoyed long and lazy afternoons in the backyard at our vacation cottage, catching up on our reading.

-Went wine tasting on several days of the week, often stopping to have a glass outside at a particularly pretty vineyard.

-Went to a nighttime outdoor screening of the Audrey Hepburn classic "Sabrina," complete with picnic of wine and cheese.

-Had a quiet dinner at a nice Italian restaurant on the water, at a table out on the deck.

-Visited the bar at our favorite bistro for several cocktails, some Olympics-watching, and a chat with the bartender.

-Had a couple of beers together at 10 PM in the hot tub at the cottage. (I won't say whether or not we opted for bathing suits.)

-Went for an 8-mile canoe trip up the Peconic in a two-person boat, stopping for ice cream at the end.

-Grilled an intimate dinner for two out on the deck at the cottage.

This is the most relaxing week I've had in ages and I don't even want to imagine how it would be transformed if we had a child or three we had to focus on instead of one another.

I actually had a dream last night that we had two children. I told my husband about it when I woke up. He shuddered and said, "Ugh, bad dream."

Boy that sounds like an awesome vacation.

Just think: if you were on vacation with children, you'd be wiping noses, breaking up fights, barely digesting your food, drinking apple juice and eating at Friendly's!

That sounds like one of my vacations with my husband. We try and take 2 long vacations a year and go away every other month for long weekends. I plan them a year in advance. I am such a planner. I have started to write a blog and would love if you would post it to your blog (if you feel that it is on topic). I will do the same for you if you would like. Thanks and have a great day…without children…by the way I have those dreams all the time that we have kids and they freak me out! Then I wake up and thank God it was only a dream.

Brooklynchick, I think we might be the same person! I am also a lawyer, have a cottage on Long Island (Hampton Bays), love to read, enjoy keeping fit, and spend lots of time on the North Fork with my husband. And, like you, I am VERY happily child-free!
