The first time that I went on vacation on my own was during college with two good friends, the first trip that I planned without my family was very important. It was a milestone if you will because this trip was solely financed by me with my hard earned money, as it always seems to work out, things mean more when you are the one who paid for it. The appreciation is much richer, my friends and I spent a week and a half in Acapulco, Mexico. It was beautiful, I learned how to water ski there, we relaxed and spent our days without a care in the world. A true vacation.
