What's your idea of a great vacation?

It depends on the length. A long weekend? Being pampered somewhere elegant. A week or two? Being physically active or taking an intellectually stimulating course. An extended time? Going to an interesting place and having time to explore and get to know the people.

It really depends on what you are going on vacation from. When I go on vacation, I want to do something other than the norm or just to sit and relax. Even if it involved hiking in the Rainforest of Kaua'i and getting sweaty and tired, its a break from sitting at a desk all day at work.

I want to see Stonehenge before I die. I would make a swing through that side of the world and visit Stonehenge, Egypt, and Rome. Then I could die a happy man.

I spent three wonderful weeks in Turkey earlier this year, but that was my girlfriend's idea so I get to plan our next vacation. I'm thinking of maybe a rail trip...I love trains. Or maybe just touring as many theme parks as possible - I love roller coasters! I like to be very busy and active...sitting around doesn't interest me much.

My idea of a great vacation is going to the beach and walk it day and evening. Also to get up early to look out and see the Dolphins at play but also to go back to bed, sleep in and just do what I feel like doing. Not to be rushed.

Involved in some sort of physical activity that seems beyond my ability on most days (hiking, skiing, survival camping). Or anything were I must think about the present and not what is to come.

New experiences with a bit of pampering and many choices.

It's not a specific place...I just want to relax and let everything just drift away.

being w/ the person you love at a great location like Hawaii.

Relaxing with an umbrella drink at a sun drenched beach with white sand and azure water. OK, I'd settle from a cold brew on the Jersey shore.

A little time spent away...at a rustic and restful locale, followed by some days spent at home to just get the house in order and bills paid. I always felt everyone should have a day off after a vacation! :)
