What is your definition of vacation?
Most of us think a sandy beach on a resort with all inclusive drinks and food. Basking in the sun with other tourists nearby. Nights are often filled with seafood dinners and resort entertainment by the ocean. Although there is nothing wrong with aforementioned "getaway" we generally like to think of the word vacation quite differently. Our vacations consist of a single piece of luggage and several check points along the way and much improvisation between.
For example, many have been to Puerto Rico, yet few travel away from the main city of San Juan. Recently a friend and I took a trip to Puerto Rico and planned on spending only a day in the tourist-filled capital. We rented a car and with nothing more than a fold out map, we hit the backroads of the 51st state. We were able to take a "vacation" few have experienced. Witnessing some of the most beautiful and secluded beaches we have ever seen. Although a little more risky and unknown, we choose the UN-beaten path every time.
