Looking into a crystal ball, I see a vacation in my future!

I'm going on a vacation!  Where am I going?  If you had told me 4 days ago that I'd been going there, I'd have told you that you were crazy.  I haven't really had any desire to go there, but here's how it all played out...

My uncle has these Hyatt points that can be used at the Hyatt Vacation Clubs.  He offered points to me, so I looked online and found that I was in love with this resort in Sarasota, Florida, which was right on the beach.  It appeared that the resort was available, so I got super excited about going on a vaca when I hadn't thought I'd be going on one this year.  Then this morning, I discovered that just because the hotel has reservations available, that doesn't mean it has reservations for people using Club Points. 

Then I decided that I was too sad to give up a vaca that I now had my heart set on it.  I did a search for other locations... I mean 7 nights away is 7 nights away, right?  Especially, if the said 7 nights were free.  So I decided I was willing to go somewhere that I wouldn't have necessarily selected if I was paying full price.

Which brings us back to the question~ Where am I going?

I'm going to Sedona, Arizona
Red Rock Country
Only 2 hours from The Grand Canyon
(which I will visit)
A great pool to relax by while reading my Nook
The only room available was a studio, so my room will look something like this
I'm actually super excited!

And it even gets better than a free room...
My parents were nice and gave me a free flight too.

So my 7 nights and flight have cost me a whopping $44 ($5 for flight taxes, and $39 to covert the Hyatt points)!!!

Woot!  R&R here I come!

Oh, that looks fabulous! I'm sorry to hear that your first option didn't work out, but the pictures of Arizona make me think you'll enjoy it just as well. :) I can't wait to hear your recap and hopefully see some pictures of your trip! HAVE FUN!
