The Return of VOLAR

VOLAR (the voice of logic and reason also known as the Spanish verb "to fly"):  When I'm torn between doing what's reasonable and taking advantage of another travel opportunity.

I got an email this week from CCS.  I am invited to take another volunteer vacation in 2010 at 1/3 of the cost.  I had not really been planning on any additional trips this year that require any kind of outlay of money.  I am going on a mission trip in June, but the cost of that is primarily defrayed by fundraising (such as the youth talent show tonight).  I have now won a vacation by getting an award at work.  Conveniently that includes the extra week off with pay, airfare, lodging and spending money.  It's the closest thing to a free ride that I've ever seen. 

But it's hard for me not consider one more trip, even though having three trips in a year is blessing enough. 

I need to follow the advice of beer distributors everywhere..."know when to say when."
