It's rare for us to travel to a place more than once. I know that sounds crazy...but the way I see it is that there are so many places to explore and so little time, so from a efficiency standpoint I honestly don't have time to make multiple visits to a destination.
There are of course exceptions to this, and clauses to this way of travel.
For example, if we haven't been to a place in years and loved it the first time we'll repeat it OR if we fall completely in love with a destination then we'll come back and visit again no matter how long the time in between was.
Here in the US there are a few places we frequent (and staycations in Maine don't count), often coming each year, including Austin, the Gulf Coast, Nor Cal, So Cal, Chicago & NYC.
And I must say that after our recent trip to Charleston we are adding that city on our repeat list - so much so that we are literally, even though we were just there a few weeks ago, heading back there again tomorrow. Yup...tomorrow.
It's the husbands birthday weekend and I have business there the following week so we figured why not make a little vacation out of it?! And lets be real...I'll take any excuse to get back to the Zero George - so to say that I am excited to stay there again would be a compelte understatement. I think I am looking forward to that more than anything else.
Interested in learning more about why we loved Charleston so much? I promise to write a full Charleston recap post when we get back filled with where we stayed, what we did and what you can't miss.
In the meantime I am frantically packing and counting down the minutes to sipping champagne on the porch at the Zero George.
Cheers to birthdays, weekend getaways and champagne.
Got any insider tips for me to see/do/eat/drink in Charleston? I'd love to hear them!
