Although I am not a rich man, I do so love to travel whenever I can. Some people are addicted to buying the newest cell phone, or the nicest car, or having the best jewelry. Not me, for me all of my extra money goes into a travel fund. Once a year I cash it out and use everything I have saved up to take as long a trip as I can afford. This year marked the third time I was able to visit the islands, which has become my favorite destination in all of the world. What I love the most is never having to worry about turning on the heater. You see, where I live is very cold for a very large part of the year, every year, and running your heater is not something that is negotiable. At home, at work, in the car, basically at all times you need to have access to heating or you will not have a very good time. Don’t get me wrong, I love my hometown and really don’t plan to ever move, but taking a vacation to a place where you only need an air conditioner and never a furnace is a nice treat. Usually on my trips I will spend all of my time in one of two places, on the beach under the sun, or in the hotel suite in front of the air conditioner. Think about it, most of the year I never get to feel AC, so when I have the chance I enjoy it for novelty value.
