Okay - we're back from Israel, and I'm working on that trip journal (along with London and Paris - yikes) but since we always like having something in the hopper, I'm starting to plan our summer trip to Stowe Vermont.
Both girls are going to encampment this summer (a one week sleep-away camp sponsored by United Synagogue), so Chris and I figure we'll go away. Though I want to be somewhere within driving distance of the kids, in case something happens. Thus, Vermont.
Our plan is to do some hiking, biking and hopefully, some good eating to go along with that. We're still torn though on whether or not to do a vacation rental or a B&B for the week. I'm leaning towards the rental so we can cut costs and cook, plus we'll have more space to spread out. Though there is a 'social' aspect to the B&B/hotel that I sometimes miss when traveling but I think that sacrafice is worth the extra space of a rental.
