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.
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 that I got a bad rash on it!
I slept in until 1PM after coming back from vacation. Normally I wake up around 10AM.
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 question like for example Russia they wouldn't understand you which is annoying and kisses people off.
For example, southern CA has so many cool stuff 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.
Especially the big ones that involve flying.
My first trip to Vegas was as a 2 year old (1994), and I didn't go again till I was 23 (2015), 21 YEARS LATER!
I visited CA 3x in my childhood. Once at age 2 (1994), once at 3 3/4 (1996), and once at age 5 (1997). Then, my mom decided to force me to wait 18 YEARS before I got to visit CA again (2015)!
After that, I visited CA again last year (2017). I would like to go to CA and Vegas again in 1-2 years, NOT WAIT FOR ANOTHER 10+ YEARS! Forcing me to wait for such a long gap between my trips in the 90s-2015 was already more than plenty of torture for me! >:(
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 don't have resort fees where you have to pay separate for stuff like WiFi. Vegas' other hotels are MGM properties and they have resort fees.
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.
Only carryon and 1 personal bag allowed on plane and they must be a specific size
If its about going to a far off place with JUST FAMILY, Then its totally... opposite.
You're having such a great time that before you know it your vacation is almost over
