It’s snowing in Portland right now, and a trip to a warm, sunny beach sounds like a great idea. You know what would make it even better? Board games. (Board games make everything better, right?)
I just found out about this geek vacation package called Cardboard & Sun, available through BoardGameTravel.com. It’s from August 25-30, and it’s a 6 day/5 night trip to the Greek island of Paros. You stay at Alea Apartments and enjoy access to the beaches and their 400-title board game library. The website has more details about what is and isn’t included, but it sounds like a fantastic idea.
It doesn’t look like I’ll be able to go this year—that’s shortly after Gen Con for me and I think all our vacation time was already budgeted for the year—but we’re keeping it in mind for the future.
