btw - a while, while back you had a thread on how few girls were going on a trip, rented a car, than somehow one needed to go one way, the rest another way - and there was a question on how to split the rental charges. How did that end?
When I go on vacation, I like to rent a house or apartment or something and live more like the locals. When that isn't practical, I like a cheap, safe hotel room. I am one of those people who launch themselves out of bed while on vacation and run themselves ragged exploring. As I am only in my hotel room long enough to change and shower, I don't wish to pay for resort features I won't use.
I don't do beaches and fancy pools and lying in the sun, so I rarely choose beach/island vacations where you find most resorts.
Ah, you remember my trip to IW for the BNP Paribas Open.
All went well. The one with the rental car drove herself around, and the rest of us took a cab. No drama, thank goodness.
We are all going again (although not one of us can afford it!). We just couldn't say no because it was such a blast last time.
