One of the popular myths about Navy Family Life is that when you are stationed overseas it’s like one big vacation. Yes it can be fun – but it can also be stressful when you have to take into account the cultural differences that you will come across. But – the cool part about living overseas is the fact that you are LIVING OVERSEAS! I think the most expensive part of traveling to; say for example, Europe is the actual flight across the ocean. Once you are over there you can take advantage of driving on the fast highways, flying to different countries or even riding the train across the continent.
Once ‘across the pond’ you can take some pretty awesome trips! A few of the places we visited while in Spain were Malaga (which is right on the Mediterranean Sea) and Madrid (which is literally one huge round-about!) both beautiful and both very different.
Malaga and Marbella I think are the rich people capitols of southern Spain. All you see there are fancy cars and luxury Spanish vacation rentals. Not to mention white sands and blue seas – it’s really gorgeous there.
Here in the United States you can find some pretty nice luxury vacation rentals too. In my neck of the woods – Virginia – we have a lot (a LOT) of history dating back pre-Revolutionary War. If your hubby is the “I want to stay in a super posh resort” and you are the “I just want to hunt for ghosts” then Virginia is a great place to visit because we literally have both types of those Virginia vacation rentals.
Do a little research before visiting any place be it here in the USA or abroad. That way you can see as much as you possibly can and spend only the money you want to spend.
