At the end of every year, I post about my best and worst travel experiences of the year. Of course, this year hasn’t been typical in any way. I don’t have too many travel moments in 2020 to choose from thanks to a bunch of cancelled trips.
Best Travel Experience of 2020
Undoubtedly, my family’s best trip this year was our trip to Costa Rica in early March. This was before the world shut down and everything changed.
We had 5 care-free nights at Andaz Papagayo, and we enjoyed every minute of it! What I wouldn’t give to walk to the restaurant on the marina with the swings and ’80s music:
Worst Travel Experience of 2020
Our worst travel experience this year was our cancelled trip to Disney World. We had been looking forward to this trip for quite some time. While we have done single days at Disney World over the past few years, my family has not spent a full week doing all the parks since 2010.
But alas, Disney World wasn’t even open during our travel dates. We rescheduled the trip for 2021 and instead did a couple of socially-distanced vacation home rentals. While those short getaways were nice, I am really itching to do some more adventurous travel.
Plans for 2021
We already postponed a trip we were supposed to take in mid-January to a rental cabin in Broken Bow. With the high virus numbers and cold weather, we just weren’t feeling it.
In 2021, we hope to make it to the beach for Spring Break. This summer, we have plans to travel to Disney World and Cancun (both trips were postponed from 2020). In addition, we’d like to visit our families that we haven’t seen in many months due to the pandemic.
With our credit card free nights, we might start visiting colleges in the fall (gasp!).
Overall, I am hopeful about 2021 and excited for the opportunity for another year on this earth.
What were the best and worst travel experiences for you in 2020? What are your plans for 2021?
