Default Who's Ready For Vacation?

Describe your best vacation. It can be a vacation you've already had or a vacation you've always wanted. What made it or would make it so great?

Do you have an upcoming vacation? Where are you heading, and are you excited for it?

My best vacation was when my two bestest friends in the whole wide world came up to visit me for the first time in my new home. They flew up and we spent a week together. It was the happiest time of my life, far better than Disneyland! (Though Disneyland with my friends sounds awesome) It meant the world to me that my parents and their parents all agreed to it, and though it was taxing to be a good host, we girls had a splendid time.

I do have an upcoming vacation. I'm heading on a road trip south to stay in a hotel and play the slots at the casino in a beautiful waterfront area. I've never played at the casino there and really want to, so I'm happy to have some quality me time winning the big bucks as a reward for so much dedication to school and work.

I enjoy vacation, but more on the side whoís Iím spending my time with. My dream vacation would be beaches and relaxing at spa lol.

I do have planned vacation, two actually. One is with my high school friends, we are planning on a budget travel to thailand, mostly just normal travel nothing crazy.

One more is with my college bestie. Heís trans so weíll enjoy it as girls vacation, and since heís a foodie, I can imagine us spending a lot on food and shopping. We are going to Taiwan Iím so excited.

I used to go on cruises, but found being among large numbers of people increasingly difficult to cope with. Instead, I go away with my daughter to country retreats, or visiting my later mother's vineyard in France which was left to me. Touring France is very pleasant, especially now when the weather hasn't got too hot and spring flowers are looking so pretty in the fields.

Though chartering jets is useful since I have a part-share in an aircraft, I've never liked flying and frquently sick up. When I was younger, cruising was much more fun. One particularly great memory was sailing up the Grand Canal in Venice, at around 1 or 2 knots. The views were breathtaking! Now and much to the Venetians' pleasure, all cruise ships above a certain size are forbidden to cruise the Grand Canal, making the vaporetto the only option, and these water craft can get very packed with squawking tourists. Ever heard multilingual conversations all at once? It's enough to cause panic, and one would no way want to exit the vaporetto into the canal. < thanks, but no thanks! The water around Venice stinks!

So..my best vacation? It is now, somewhere in France among poppies in the verdant distance and a vineyard surrounding my late mother's farm and chateau. A sleepy-eyed boyfriend smiled lazily at me this morning, a linen wrapped bowl of warmed croissants at the breakfast table, a cafetiŤre of coffee and the smell of lavender just about to start flowering, its scent soft and welcoming on the warm breeze. Growing nearby next to the verandah are a clump of lillies of the valley, the like of which are given to our loved ones on the 1st of May.

I cannot think of a better more idyllic place to be than here, right now. Off sick on a doctor's certificate, I hope these next few days will be healing to me, and my family will begin returning to happier normality, our children playing among themselves and Peggy strumming her acoustic and singing a French song of love long ago returning to dwell among us. When she runs, her blonde hair flies out behind her like a flock of yellow canaries....ahh, sweet memories are made of these times.

I am so ready for my vacations. Iím going to Memphis to see Graceland and do some other tourist stuff in a few months. Then in September Iím going to the lake for Labor Day weekend. In summer 2020 Iím going to Arizona and Iíll be on a plane for the first time. Iíll be going to a family reunion and Iíll be seeing the Grand Canyon.

My favorite vacation was the one I took this past summer. My mom and I took a road trip. We went to The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Museum in Cleavland, took a tour of Amish country Pennsylvania, drove to the Canadian side of Niagra Falls and then spent 2 days in a tourist town in Michigan.

This is so beautiful, I'm tearing up. A tiny bit jealous, but also in awe at the picture you've painted. I wish I could be someplace like that!

Well....it used to be going to my childhood home each year. Now, I am very happy to simply stay home. If I were to go somewhere, it would be the beach. Doesn't have to be anywhere fancy or expensive, just as long as it is near the shore.

I travel a lot. I do four or five vacations a year although now that Iím back in school that will be seriously curtailed going forward. I am going to Mexico next month just for three days. Otherwise I have nothing planned for the rest of the year.

Sorry to have made you cry, and yearning, but as we journey through life, sometimes we encounter unexpected places that are so beautiful. One morning I was walking our spaniel when he disappeared and I heard a splash. Typical of spaniels, they like water. Jack had only leapt into the Canal du Midi.

Well, I was never wonderful at directions, preferring to ramble, and forgot the Midi was so closeby. This picture is typical of the canal, which people of all ages and interests visit. Lined with Plane trees, the canal is serene and brings peace and stillness to a troubled heart.

Perhaps this is another place that you could visit one day? Book a week's cruise on a barge. It's not expensive and a week on the water feels like a fortnight. The Canal du Midi is 240 km long, so you would be in for a wonderful holiday.

May you find such a beautiful place, and happiness, guilloche.
