Heather and I generally travel well together. We do our research, weigh our options, and come to decisions that we both feel good about. On trips we often praise ourselves for the fine job we did planning such a spectacular vacation. (Sadly, that’s true. We actually do.)
But, nobody’s perfect.
We have made our share of travel mistakes. We share them here in the hopes that you can avoid them on your own travels.
1. Traveling North for New Year’s
Our most recent oops. Last month we reviewed our impressions of Montreal. The city certainly has a lot of destination appeal. However, amid a record breaking cold snap this appeal plummets. We thought: how much colder can Montreal be compared to Boston at New Year’s? Answer: Nose snapping instant frostbite colder.
There’s a reason that people in the Northeast go south in the winter. I accept the logic now.
