laws to travel by – #37


Once the new year starts, it’s never too early to start planning for the summer.

Let’s be honest: the winter sucks after Christmas is over. Maybe a freak snowstorm will change up the monotony, but otherwise? It’s all cold and windy and there’s that weird staticky hair issue where it’s either all over the place or confusingly flat. Then, spring hits for all of five seconds before a slew of random rainstorms and bright colors invade everyone’s lives.

Ok, this might be New York specific, but we can all agree: June-August is better than January, February, and most of March combined. Everyone knows this, and that’s why everyone and their mother takes time off in the summer to prance around their favorite beach destination and get all tan (or freckley, WHATEVER). We all do it, and it’s glorious.

Less glorious? The prices of summer travel. Airfare in peak season is just ridiculous, and forget trying to book a hotel once Memorial Day hits. This is why, if you’re planning to travel in the summer–especially to anywhere in the US or Europe, you had best start planning now.

Prices are about to skyrocket and shit is about to get real. Consider yourself warned.

    Funny, I’m also in New York, and I try to get in most of my travel in the winter. I do a big vacation (2-3 weeks) after Christmas, then try to go someplace warm over MLK weekend and President’s day weekend. Anything to escape the winter cold. Prices for warm destination in the winter are sky-high, so it takes a bit of planning. This year I did Mexico, Key West, and Puerto Rico… I’m still working on the trip reports 🙂

    On the other hand, I love New York in the summer. There’s a ton of free cultural events, I can do day trips in the Hudson Valley, go on overnight hikes without freezing, take the train up to Lake George… weekend getaways and day trips are so much easier in the summer. I like being home in the summer.
