Argentum Bay: The Ultimate Vernal Break
The month of Martius will be here before you know it, which means one thing and one thing only, at least for those of us between the ages of 18 and 22 (give or take): Vernal Break!  And there isn't a destination I can recommend more for a week's worth of sun and debauchery than...Argentum Bay. 

I know what you're thinking, and I was thinking the same thing until last year.  First of all: Scorpia?  Really?  Sure, it's got good beer and all, but it's also got crazy hurricanes and hookers that aren't exactly known for being healthy.  It's also the place where criminals and other undesirables...well, just kind of disappear mysteriously.  Scorpia's dangerous, and trashy, and all in all kind of gross. 

I thought that, too.  Then I finally actually went. 

My friends had been trying to get me to go to Argentum Bay since freshman year, and I gave in when I was a junior.  And let me say that I regret whole-heartedly that my first two Vernal Breaks were spent elsewhere.  Yeah, Argentum Bay's got the good beer that Scorpia is known for, and the gods know how much of that stuff I ingested that week  (and yeah, it's got the hookers, if you're into that sort of thing, which of course I am).  But it's also got the most gorgeous beach you will ever see, ever.  

I repeat: The Most Gorgeous Beach.  Ever!

And only the beautiful people celebrating Vernal Break matches the beauty of that beach.  You wouldn't believe the girls there - it's like Argentum Bay somehow lured the hottest co-eds of the entire 12 colonies and corralled them in one area for seven days.  I'm not exaggerating.  This isn't that Scorpia beer talking.

Argentum Bay is also...well, cheap.  You can afford it.  Most Vernal Break resorts on the other colonies are designed for trust fund kids and heiresses and movie stars.  Argentum Bay is for you and me.  

And you haven't lived until you've gone paragliding.  It might very well be the most incredible rush ever.  When you're up in the air, looking down at that amazing beach and all those gorgeous girls...4you will wonder how life can get any better.  

So, forget what you've heard, and unlearn what you have learned.  This place is the real deal.  There is only one destination for you this year.
