With the last few years being a pandemic roller coaster, it's been a long time since I've taken a vacation and truly let go of everything.
This summer I finally got to do that. Thanks to my husband Robert, who runs the website ThemeParkInsider.com we had the almost surreal opportunity to go on the Inaugural Cruise of the new "Disney Wish" ship last week.
Of course, he spent the entire time writing articles, recording panels and doing interviews, but for my two grown kids and me, it was time off and time away from normal life. Without my violin or even an Internet connection, I truly disconnected for the first time in years! It felt good to simply put the brain and body in a different place for a week.
Have you been able to take a good vacation in the last few years? Do you have a getaway planned for this year? If so, will you be taking your violin, or not? Is your idea to get away from your fiddle, or actually take it with you and make it the focus of your "away" time? Please participate in the vote and then tell us all about it in the comment- and it’s okay to vote if your vacation already happened! For those of us readers in the U.S., happy Independence Day!
