I must admit I was a bit skeptical when my partner asked if we could go somewhere for the holidays.
Every year, we stayed at home with the kids and opened presents on Christmas morning.
However, this year he felt we should go on an adventure. This turned out to be the best experience, though there were some challenging moments. We found a winter vacation rental somewhere nice and calm. Luckily, the place was available, so we opted to rent it for a week. We packed up our things, plus the presents and set off on a winter adventure. The drive to this vacation rental wasn’t too bad, but there was so much ice on the road that my partner had to drive slowly. It took hours to get there, but the view on the way, and the adventure spirit was amazing. Plus, it helped that our SUV had the best heating that kept us comfortable. When we arrived at the vacation rental, we went to turn on the heating system, but nothing happened. It was already late so there was no way to get anyone to inspect it at that hour. Thankfully, I had packed out space heaters so we used all 4 of them that night. The following morning, we spoke with the rental agent about the faulty heating system. She was apologetic, and went ahead to hire an HVAC specialist to check it out. It didn’t take long for a HVAC specialist to come by, do a bit of repair and leave the unit running. The heating system made Christmas morning blissful, and that was the best experience ever.
