A few months ago, we decided to take a vacation to Colorado. Because we had gone to Disney World over Christmas, we didn't want to spend a lot of money to go some where - and we couldn't - but just wanted to get away. With my husband's job and work ethic, if he doesn't leave town, he's never on vacation.
So, we looked online at www.vrbo.com (Vacation Rentals by Owner) and tried to find something that looked okay, slept six people, but that also was inexpensive. We wanted a log cabin-looking place, but they were all booked at short notice.
That's okay. We didn't want the pot of gold. We were together, and that's all that matters.
