I was listening to a webinar in the car one day and my son asked if I was going to ask any questions. When I told him I didn't have any yet he said "Ask them if travel agents can go anywhere besides Mexico". I told him I know the answer to that question, so there's no need to ask the speaker.
Me: "So do you think we go there too much?"
"No, I just wondered. I like it there and want to go back."
LOL yep that son of mine is very good at the backhanded comments. We are always wondering if he meant what he said the way it sounded.
Yes, we can go plenty of places (and we do), but always seem to come back to Mexico somehow. This year we did Disney World on Spring Break and came home exhausted. My husband swore it was all my idea and we should've gone to an all-inclusive instead.
Every now and then we reassess why the allure is so strong, especially during the cyclical bouts of bad news. Choices, value experience. The diversity of options can't be beat. From 5 star resorts, authentic haciendas, colonial cities, rustic jungle retreats. Oh and the food...Yum! Even the most expensive resorts are usually a better value than say, Hawaii. We can find an activity comparable to other areas without spending a whole day flying. The world is huge and we'll slowly make our way around it, but even after years I still find new reasons to go back somewhere in Mexico. Everyone usually has one place that captures their heart that way. For one of my colleagues it's Thailand, another it's France; and we all wonder why in the world the other likes 'that place' so much!
