Top 10 Worst Things About VacationsWe may have fun taking a break from life, but of course it has its disadvantages.
It takes days (even weeks) to pack clothes, my camera, chargers, my phone, iPad, sunscreen, etc., and then my mom makes a list and checks it twice, and when we're flying, we have to check our stuff to make sure that it can go through airport security.
Planes have regulations on stuff like toiletries. In 2015, when we visited LA, my younger cousin packed sunscreen, and it got taken away by airport security. It made her very angry.
It takes forever to pack.
Like if you go to Mexico, people ask, "Are you from out of the country?"
Well, I have bags, so where did I come from? A store?
People go on vacations more when it's summer, so it's so hot.
I like the hotels, but the rates are so expensive!
Some are so dirty.
We spent at least $5000 (maybe even more?) in summer 2015. For 3 people (me, my sister, and my mom):
- @$100 per person for Disneyland 1-day park hopper tickets. It's $300 total.
- Airfare is like $500 each?
- We stayed at the Linq in Vegas for about $150 per night per person. We spent 2 nights in Vegas, so it's like $900.
- We ate at the Mirage buffet in Vegas, which was $35 a person.
- We ate out nearly every day.
This is a partial list. We also did the Warner Bros studio tour, Universal, CA Science Center, fake horse rides, etc. Luckily my relatives helped pay for the majority of that stuff. We stayed at their houses in LA and San Francisco, so we only had to pay for a hotel in Vegas.
We also went to NYC later that summer, but luckily we hardly spent anything there.
My face looks like I got a bad rash on it!
I slept in until 1 PM after coming back from vacation. Normally, I wake up around 10 AM.
This is absolutely necessary unless you like to get blisters and painful sunburns that last 1-2 weeks. Argument invalid.
Sunscreen, sunscreen, and more sunscreen...
You don't get it when you ask some locals questions, like for example in Russia, they wouldn't understand you, which is annoying and pisses people off.
For example, southern CA has so many cool things that I wanted to see, but since last time I was only there for a week, I only did Disneyland, Universal, Santa Monica, Warner Bros, CA Science Center, and Hollywood. Other stuff like Dodger Stadium, the Rose Bowl, Knotts, Magic Mountain, and Sony will have to wait for a future trip.
I wanted to do Fremont Street in Vegas, but since we were only there for 3 days, we mainly did the Strip.
In San Francisco, I only spent like 3 days there both in 2017 and 2015, so I only did the Golden Gate Bridge, Pier 39, YT headquarters, and the Santa Cruz boardwalk. The other stuff like the 17-mile drive, Paramount Great America, the Transamerica Pyramid, and AT&T Park will have to wait for a future trip.
For example, in southern CA, there are 4 theme parks that I really wanted to visit, but in my 2015 trip, we only did 2 (Disneyland and Universal) because we were only there for a week, and we did other stuff too, so the other 2 (Knotts and Magic Mountain) will have to wait until a future trip.
Then punch them in the face.
Sure, some kids go on spring break, holidays, etc., but not my family. We only go during the summer.
Same here. And my dads say, I can't. I'm working, every time I want to go somewhere.
In Disneyland, it's $14 for a plush toy, $5 for Starbucks, and $8 for 1 corndog and a bag of chips. In Vegas, it was $35 for a buffet. At the Rock Center Cafe in NYC, it was $34 for a burger.
In Vegas 2015, I stayed at the Linq. It was a Caesars Entertainment hotel. Their company doesn't have resort fees where you have to pay separately for stuff like WiFi. Vegas' other hotels are MGM properties, and they have resort fees.
Only carryon and 1 personal bag allowed on plane and they must be a specific size
