How have your vacation strategies changed? –

Readers, how have your vacation strategies changed over the past few years? Are there places you don’t want to go now (or times you don’t want to go) that you might have been in years past? How much do extreme weather/climate changes, politics, pandemic response and restrictions, transportation issues and more influence your decisions? Are you trying to plan as many vacations as possible right now because you may have missed, skipped, or limited vacations since 2020?

For my $0.02, I try to be more aggressive about planning vacations for the family, but many of the above factors influence our decisions. My husband strongly prefers direct flights, and with the airline’s regret, it seems wise. The pandemic restrictions have limited any hope of international travel until recently (I’ve had too many friends stuck in Switzerland or places because they tested positive before returning). I think it will be years before my family feels comfortable going on a cruise (but then again, it’s not like we were cruise people to begin with – we’ve never taken one). Even now for children’s holidays we strongly prefer outdoor water parks to indoor only.

Tell us, readers – how do all these things affect your vacation decisions?
