We start 2010 carefree–Carefree, Ariz., that is.
If last year you were too worried about taking any vacation or just didn’t have the time or money, resolve to to cash in those unused days pronto. That bank is for you after all. You’re not going to get any more productive by rotting in your cubicle.
No, you don’t have to go tomorrow, but do start pulling together an agenda for your trip. It should read a little something like this:
1. Book an Arizona vacation rental. I’ve taken the liberty of pulling one such stunner for you, a three-bedroom townhouse with $100,000 in upgrades and views of the mountains.
2. Reserve a tee time at multiple greens in the Scottsdale-Phoenix area. The unit featured is near The Boulders, Desert Forrest, Desert Highlands and Estancia. While Tiger Woods is taking a hiatus from the game, that doesn’t mean you have to. Besides, that guy has worse problems right about now.
3. Wear a wide-brimmed hat and Nicole Richie-like sunglasses while relaxing by the pool. This luxe vacation home sits behind a gate, which means no pesky paparazzi.
4. Make an appointment for a facial or massage at Golden Door Spa at The Boulders Resort. You worked hard last year, and your t-rex limbs (from being on the computer too long) and ashy skin paid for it. With its meditation labryinth and caviar facials, the spa really makes guests feel like they’ve died and gone to heaven.
Now that wouldn’t be a bad way to go.
