Vacations

Tools    





Do you vacation each year?
Yes I do. Always liking having something to look forward to.



WE GOT MOVIE SIGN!!!
I always try and take a vacation around Christmas time...this year its being cut short by 4 days though due to a staff shortage at work...which sucks a bit...but it may give me a chance to book some more time off in January which may be a plus...other than that it depends on whether the OH can get time off as well...if she can we try to aim for a week and a bit in the summer and try to go somewhere nice



Tyler isn't here! Tyler went away! Tyler's gone!
Wahoo, got to love vacations.
Leaving tomorrow for the OBX for a week and a day at Roanoke Island. On the way back I'll be hitting up Jamestown, Yorktown and possibly Richmond (haven't decided if were stopping there yet). I'm a big history nerd, mainly with civil and revolutionary war sites, so I tend to base most of my vacationing around those sites.

That elusive hide-and-seek cow is at it again
I really enjoyed Thailand back in 2009, I believe it was. While I did get the worst upset stomach I've ever experienced for 4 days, it was still a wonderful trip. That was literally my first time out of my own country. Bit scary!





















Bhu Nga Thani Hotel




A day in Manhattan (or more) will do it for me. This is the building on East 58th Street I lived in for 10 years.

Every time I see this thread I think of the Go-Go's song

You guys are lucky to have been to such Cool Places. (no one will get that reference)...

BTW, Nice photos! I'll have to visit this thread when I go somewhere fun.



According to me the best place for vacations is Maldives



My ideas for 2018 are as follows:

Seattle
Portland
San Diego
New Orleans
Boston

Those are my top 5 ideas right now, anyone have any U.S. recommendations?



Well, if you make it Seattle, and you go around Labor Day, there's a decent chance I'll have talked myself into a fourth year of PAX. If so, lunch is on me.

Pacific northwest is beautiful if you haven't been. I think I will probably be back in Seattle next June. San Diego has amazing weather but I didn't love it as much as it had been hyped to me. I really want to take my boys to NYC. I haven't been back since I moved from Long Island. You been?

That's a negative for NYC. It's pretty pricey so that will have to wait a bit. Being at the Grand Canyon has me in a national park mood, which is why Seattle and Portland are on my list. Olympia National Park and Crater Lake National Park look beautiful. New Orleans and San Diego have been on my list for awhile and would love to go to both. There's lots to do there.

I only wish I could go somewhere again in a month. I'll probably be waiting till 2018. A small part of me wants to say screw it and go somewhere in October, but I doubt that will happen.



It's been hard not to look at vacation destinations lately, Grand Canyon has me wanting to go exploring.



It'll be pretty funny next year if Sean's in Seattle in June, you're there in August, and I'm there in September.
Too bad we couldn't all be there at once. I definitely want to hit Safeco again.

Come to Seattle! there's tons of neat stuff to see and do here...then take a cruise from Seattle to Alaska, it's a blast! And so easy to do.

Modern cruise ships are so huge that they're like giant floating Vegas style hotels. They have multiple restaurants & places to eat. Tons of activities and stuff to do...and a casino too. You also get to visit different places almost each day. I've done two Alaskan cruises from Seattle, loved it. Sailing right by a giant glacier is very cool!

The Caribbean is also a nice cruise...almost every day is a different island nation that you get the day to visit onland. It's a great way to travel as they do all the work and you get to kick back and enjoy.

I know you like Vegas, so I bet you would love a big cruise ship, it's the same thing only more and it's cheaper to do as most everything is included in the cost of the cruise....no I don't work for the cruise industry, though it sounds like I'm a travel agent
