    God damn we are having a hard time finding something we like. And when we do find something we like, it is either too expensive or it disappears by the time we are ready to book.


    We have been trying to book 2 weeks in Mexico for a few weeks now and it seems like the prices are higher this year. Anyone else notice that? Where is everyone going? Post the place you are going to and the resort name. I need ideas. :)

    I was very skeptical at first but I searched all over for a better deal, and we saved 300 bucks for leaving on a thursday instead of the saturday. :bigup:

    As far as getting a Twinrix vacc. I don't currently have a doctor in Halifax. Am I able to get this from a walk in clinic? I'm betting it's also not covered by insurance either?

    I'm hoping to go to Bahamas, Barbados or back to the Netherland Antilles this year. It all depends where he gets a trip for work. Grand Cayman would be ok too.

    Yeah it's sorta the luck of the draw for me though. I go on trips with him when he's called down for business. Hotel and his flight is already paid for and I just fly on points. We usually stay a couple extra days and I keep myself occupied while he's at work (tours, diving, snorkeling, etc).

    I hope he gets a trip to Barbados though!!

    Possible countries we could end up:

    Barbados
    Bahamas
    Bermuda
    Grand Cayman
    Trinidad *
    Jamaica *
    Curacao
    Aruba

    Stars next to the ones where I won't go, because he's in the business centres which are dangerous cities.

    I'm not going anywhere, not even a trip to Bathurst :( I will hopefully be working all week to make money to pay CPP when the time comes.
