Best vacation you ever took?

46 posts in this topic

So my wife and I are coming up on our 25th anniversary next year and want to go on one of those epic trips/vacations. We've been kicking around ideas for trips to different places that we've never been/always talked about going to but Ive started to wonder if we really want to go to those places or if we just think we do. I mean if we haven't ever been motivated enough to do more than talk about it maybe there is a reason.

So I turn to you good folk. Do a fellow Huddler a solid and throw out some suggestions of trips you've taken that rank up in the top spot of your vacations. Don't worry about it being the right time of year or the cost or anything else as we are just looking for some fresh ideas in the pot to help us out.

Thanks!

Athens, but that was before the Greek economy took a massive dookie.

What time of year are you talking about? I know some beaches in Mexico that are completely off the radar for tourists. Luxury + privacy.

Bareboating in the BVIs. It's not that expensive and it is super relaxing. Not for everyone though.

Kauai was beyond beautiful. London was fun. Austria/Germany/Italy was a blast. But they pail in comparison to my five-week road trip around the USA two summers ago. Best time I've ever had.

Austria really is a sweet country and Berlin is probably my favorite city in the world

Where in those countries did you go in particular?

My favorite was a three day trip to Gettysburg. But that is not for everyone. :)

As far as something you and your wife might enjoy, I would say Italy or Hawaii. Italy is great with historical sites such as Rome and Pompeii, the romantic with Venice, and incredible scenery along the Amalfi coastal road. Hawaii has great weather, beaches and luaus.

Also getting around in Italy is relatively easy with a Eurorail pass. Although the Italian trains tend to be slow.

    • Just another reminder the guy you voted for and the party you affiliate with is failing to govern and is going to get impeached in the near future. Your gonna need a lot of creativity to make your life bearable in the coming future. Down with Trump Down with Russia  
    • I finally was able to watch it last night.

      I thought it was a good episode.

      The trouble is that it has only been about the second or third good episode out of the second half 8 of this season.

      I like show Negan almost as much as the comic one, and I know that probably puts me in a minority, but I think JDM does a fantastic job.

      Also, show Eugene is easily one of my favorite characters at this point. Comic Eugene was/is kind of boring at times.

      This episode showed what I've been saying all along though, that Rick and Negan are rooted in the same character. Rick is more supported by the individuals in his group, while Negan is more the totalitarian. Rick is more moral-majority and Negan is more "I make the rules, and you better follow them." But at their base, they are exactly the same. They are just dudes trying to survive a zombie apocalypse the best way they know how, and they are trying to make the world work again.

      I can go ahead and spoil most of the finale, I think, if you want to be spoiled. It sounds pretty epic and intense.

    • I also haven't finished it yet and that's mainly because the guy playing Danny sucks. If they had gotten a better actor I think this show would have been so much better. As it stands now I have two episodes left to watch and no desire to do so, and I am one of those people who finishes everything once I start it.
