That’s the question posed by an Associated Press article that appears on USAToday.com. I give my two cents, citing destinations that have increased in popularity compared to the same time last year. But what the reporter didn’t ask me — and why I am so lucky to have a place like The Window Seat to talk about myself — is how I personally am changing the way I travel in light of this economic mess.
Well, for the past two winters, my husband and I have taken a ski trip in the Alps. This year, we’re skipping it. Normally by now, we’d have made our plans for this year’s “big trip.” That past few big trips were to places like Croatia and Thailand. This year we really haven’t discussed it. It just doesn’t seem to be in the cards.
