Vacationer’s Planning Story I am single, 28 yrs old, a graphic design artist and live in an apartment in Toronto with my dog Samson. I have been working hard at my job and I finally have been given an opportunity to go on a 4 day weekend vacation. I know I want to lie down on a beach in Florida just to relax and soak in the sun. Now the difficult part – to get organized and plan that vacation! I must call a travel agent or even better go on line and book everything myself. I need to book a return flight, reserve a hotel room and buy some sun screen lotion. Wow that was easy, going on line has saved me a lot of money! I got a return flight out of Pearson International Airport to Miami, reserved a suite at the South Beach Manor Resort and I’ll pick up lotion at the duty free shop at the airport. Now I just have to sit back and dream of the ocean waves, sun drenched beach, beautiful sunsets and trendy night clubs.
