We’re back to “No Responsibility January” at the Fire Station. Last year I noted that January has become a pretty chill month for us with me not working, my son off from college, and my wife no longer working her part-part time job. While it seems like the rest of the world is back to school or work – we’re just goofing off.
With time on our hands, we are going to celebrate “No Responsibility January” with a sunny trip to Miami and a Caribbean Cruise. Last year we went to Cabo San Lucas (highlights/trip planner HERE) and really enjoyed traveling in January – when the resorts are pretty quiet. The FIRE Travel Framework that we developed before early retiring two years ago has been working great.

We booked this winter getaway very last minute and scored an ‘open bar’ package on our cruise (free beer, wine & mixed drinks)! We’re not big drinkers generally, but who can turn down free?! I was surprised that we could get a great room and special discount this late in the booking cycle. Good learning for the future!
We haven’t booked any other 2018 trips at this point, but we are attending an information meeting in a few weeks for a possible summer trip to the Holy Land. We are also thinking about a Spring trek to Tennessee/North Carolina. We’ll see how things progress when we get back from our fun in the sun this month. We live in Minnesota, so we will still have a couple months of winter weather when we return.
What locations are on your 2018 travel list? Anything really unique?
