My Girlfriend (soon to be Fiance) and I, have been wanting to take a vacation together for the longest time. We were saving our money as much as we could, but due to Medical issues and me being hospitilized last year, even with working two jobs, we can never seem to catch up. My insurance is not very good at all. It's mostly out of pocket because of the type of insurance it is (HSA). I had to drain what we saved and pretty much everything I earn goes to paying those bills and the ones that have now fallen into collection. My girlfriend took care of me when I needed it most then. She still continues to help me every chance she gets. I can see how hard she works day in and day out, while i'm restricted to what i can do. It's got to be one of the most frustrating aspects in our life right now. I want to be able to take her away from everyting if just for a week or so. Give her the break I know she needs but would never ask for. Normally, I wouldn't think of using one of these sites until a friend recommended it to me. I made the goal what the cost would be for an average trip for 1 week to 1 of 4 different places that I know she would like. I don't expect to meet this goal as others have just as many troubles as I sometimes even more. I just figured that even alittle bit helps and to give it a shot.
