Today I was asked by two single girls whether they should go on holiday next week to Spain or to Jamaica. The price is about the same but the weather forecast is better in Spain.
I advised them to go to Jamaica because a bad holiday in Jamaica would yield more vivid memories, better anecdotes and would sound far more glamorous in the future telling than a good holiday in Spain.
Sometimes it is better to think in long-term story potential rather than short term enjoyment.
One response to “Why a bad holiday in Jamaica can be better than a good one in Spain…”
If one can cope with the ten hour flight time! The eight hour time change! The extra high humidity! Th highly spiced food!. The gale force winds! Ageing sun burnt skin – plus possible CANCER! Its good to travel!!
