Every year, my bowling friends and I travel around Asia. We take a week's vacation and visit one country each year. We've been to China, Japan, Taiwan, Korea, Guam and Hongkong. This year, they want it to be different, they want Vegas vacations this time. I begged off. Not that I want a Vegas vacation but times are really hard and I can't afford to spend my little savings for a vacation at this time. Hopefully, next year, I'll be able to join them again.
