One Man's Paradise

People always travel in
Their own peculiar way – 
Airline tickets, restaurants
And where they choose to stay.

Some use points to pay their fare;
Others upgrade seats.
Many read while flying,
While a number send out tweets.

Certain people like hotels
Familiar in their perks.
Others search for funkiness,
A place with charm and quirks.

There are those who choose to dine
In eateries quite posh,
Different from the travelers
Who’d rather cheaply nosh.

Some will plan a city trip – 
Museums, shopping, parks – 
Every day’s itinerary filled – 
No question marks.

Others like a quiet beach,
Relaxing in the sun.
Lots prefer to exercise – 
They hike or climb for fun.

If vacation plans of yours
With friends do coincide,
Just be sure that you’re in sync
Before you all decide.

One man’s paradise might be
Another’s living hell.
Then you’d all be better off
To travel parallel.

    Aloha, toodleloo. Which ever way you go. May it all be pleasant, no matter who you know. I prefer a little warmth to soften up the bones. This time of year is getting harder to releive the aches and moans. :)
