It depends. I mean, it's your money, you can do what you want with it. If you're caught up on bills and have been and can continue to keep paying them off every month and this is just some extra money, then I'd say go for the traveling. Why not? If normally you can't afford it and right now you have that money, then it's fine if you want to spoil yourself with a little trip. Besides, when will you get the chance again? Or you could even use part of it for a short trip and the other part for a bill or even just something you've been needing or wanting for the house. It's up to you what you think would you should do. Could you really use the money to pay some bills or get something you actually need? If you do, I guess you should do the responsible thing. If you're doing alright bill-wise, then have a safe trip!
