And just like that, the vacation that I have been looking forward to for several months is over. Earlier in the year, we had planned a short getaway with my parents and brother. We had decided to check out the Finger Lakes, finding an AirBNB in Ithaca that would host us for the few days. My brother flew in from Berlin, my parents drove in from Albany and we all stayed together.
The trip was great. It was so wonderful to be able to spend time with my family, and LM and FW loved all the “Nonna, Grandpa, Sweetie and Uncle Greg” time. We also had a good time checking out the city and some nearby sites. Some of the highlights included:
Grabbing dinner and ice cream around Ithaca Commons.
Hiking to and splashing around Taughannock Falls.
Lunching and wine tasting at Thirsty Owl Winery.
Exploring the area – I went running along their waterfront path one day and my family and I took walks as well.
It’s always hard to finish vacation, but this one is especially hard because of the great family time we had. I don’t know when my parents, brother and I will be all together again!
Some questions for you:
- Have you been to Ithaca?
- Do you vacation with your family?
