The Real Housewives of Orange County's Shannon Beador prefers to keep her globe trotting to familiar — if posh — locales. She goes with her family to Hawaii and New York each summer, growing and continuing traditions among the people she loves most of all.
"I'm not a big traveler — I like familiarity," she told Jet Set at the reunion taping in Los Angeles.
That might be why Shannon said she doesn't prize a bunch of fancy trappings — adventure itineraries or overwrought fine dining — as the most important parts of any vacation.
Indeed, she said the one thing that makes a great vacation is — of course — "the people that you're with," she told us.
So, we asked, who specifically has to be there to make it great? "Me!" Shannon joked.
But seriously, she said, "It depends. I had a great time in Ireland until people started lying."
Generally the people she really wants to have around her on vacation are "good girlfriends and your family — either way."
She summed up, "You gotta have a group of great people — life’s too short!"
Amen to that.
