Don't Miss the Good Stuff

Several years ago Jeffrey took a business trip to the San Francisco area, and all I got was a lousy t-shirt. Isn't that what you're supposed to say when someone goes on a trip without you? Actually, I got a sweatshirt, and the kids got t-shirts.

He went out there with a couple other guys from work, and they all stayed in the same hotel and attended meetings all day. At night they went out to see the sights in Jeffrey's rental car. The other guys rode with him, and they were just amazed that he would drive all over an area he had never visited before. I just think it's funny.

Actually, those guys were lucky to have him, because they hadn't checked into any San Francisco tours or made any plans to see the area. They probably would have gone back to the hotel after their meetings, eaten dinner in the hotel restaurant, and maybe hit the pool or the exercise room if they hadn't had Jeffrey to drive them around. That really would have been a shame. I know they went for work, but still, you can see the inside of a hotel anywhere.

If you're planning a trip or vacation, don't let yourself miss all the good stuff. No, you can't have Jeffrey come along and drive you around. You'll have to check out these online travel guides from Trusted Tours and Attractions. You can get ideas for things to do and purchase discounted tickets to the best sightseeing tours in 23 cities across America. I like this idea so much better than what I usually do, which is pick up all the brochures, information, and coupons when we arrive at our vacation destination and then get so busy 'vacationing' that I don't have time to read them all. I end up reading them after we get home and regretting all the great things we could have done. Imagine traveling to New York and missing the Metropolitan museum of art.
