Stupidcations: Spare Me, Please
I don't have anything against taking trips with my women friends -- in fact I just got back from one. And it's kind of sweet when pregnant couples take one last trip as a couple together.
But why does the travel industry have to shamelessly cash in on these trends with cutesy trip names like "girlfriend getaways" and "babymoons"? My email box is clogged with press releases promoting lots of those, not to mention intimacymoons, conceptionmoons, mancations (just for guys), and the latest, nakations (trips for nudists).
We say, don't stop there.
As we announce in this week's Travel section, we'd like to help the travel industry come up with more stupid vacation names, and we invite you to offer more ideas to get the wheels of specialty travel turning. Send us your names for new types of vacations (be funny! be creative!) and, in a display of total subjectivity, we'll publish our favorites. Send your nominations to firstname.lastname@example.org and put Stupidcations in the subject field. We'll send a Travel section knickknack, doodad or gewgaw to the authors of the funniest types of trips.
