So I just got back from three very long days of vacationing with my folks. I mean, VERY long. Here’s the thing: it totally sucked. I mean, I love spending time with my parents. I do. We get along very well. But three days of touristing in some random little rural town without any break from my parents EVER just isn’t my idea of a good time. So here are three tips that I wish I knew before I went. Good luck, you poor brave souls.
