View Full Version : Your ideal vacation


Lara Croft!

Describe briefly (or thoroughly if you like) the perfect vacation.http://hotel-revenue-management.com/images/borabora-huts.jpg *


Is it by the sea or up in a snowy mountain?
Is it in some tropical paradise or in a place to learn and explore?
Is it better to be by yourself or do you prefer company?
Will you organize it or will you choose a group?
Have you ever had that kind of vacation you really like or are your tastes too extravagant for your wallet?

I, myself like all kinds of trips. http://www.stanford.edu/group/ccr/blog/egypt.jpg

When it's summer, I have to go to a Greek island, even for a few days as I love swimming.

As far as abroad is concerned, I like visiting different places. I don't have a particular ideal holiday. I want to visit places like China, Japan, India, Peru. I would never go alone, even within an organized group. If the place is in Europe, I prefer planning it with my friends. If it's not, then I would definitely choose a travel agency.

Basically, my ideal holiday is always a new, exciting place, with an interesting culture (especially ancient civilization remnants).

I have managed to go to some places, but my list is too big and the most expensive ones are yet to come.

And my ideal honeymoon trip would be on Bora Bora islands (see first picture posted*) I have checked prices in the past and I think that it's going to be too extravagant, but marriage is not something I plan on having soon in my life, so who knows?

I've been saving up for awhile now to go back to England so I can see where I was born and I guess travel around a bit, see what it's like there, hopefully meet a few people from TRF too :p Going back has been a dream of mine since I was a little kid, my parents used to tell me about life there all the time.
After that who knows, I think I'd settle for anything outside of the US, something with the promise of adventure :D

Checking into a nice, good quality hotel would be my idea holiday. I'm not interested in going anywhere, tbh. I'd just prefer to have lots of time to sleep and go to the pool if this hotel had one. (Preferably not one of those hotel pools which have screaming kids in.)

Don't know if I have an ideal vacation.

I'd like to visit Japan.
A cabin in the mountains.
The beach is nice, the sound of the waves is very soothing.

But I guess my "dream" vacation would be Machu Picchu.

^ Really?

I sometimes wonder why people go on holiday just to lay around on a beach all day. When you pay all that money, I think it's more important to go around and look at a place in depth. :)

I'd love to spend some time secluded away in some really old fashioned Hotel, maybe even a Château, in the mountains with plenty of snow for skiing. With someone or a few people that I really loved. That would be really nice :D

Anywhere, just anywhere on Earth, I don't care, as long as its not my house. I like all sorts of vacations.
I'd love to go to a ski lodge or some lodge in a snowy area. I also would like to go to cabins or tents in a forest with rivers and hikes. I also love to go to a tropical island, with a beach and lodges. Also, would love to go to see new places, temples, structures, learn stuff and try new activities, new delicacy, meet new people, etc
as for company, yes, definitely a company and NOT alone. Ideally, it would be at least 4 people I'm best friends with, good and fun company, and one of them is my partner/boyfriend so that at the end of the day when we go back to our bed, we could snuggle together and share our day's adventures. :D


Edit: oh ok, my post just made me feel :( *sigh*

Personally, I'd go on a deserted island.
To be able to swim underneath the stars is one thing that I want to do, it's a wish I have ever since I was little.
I just love the thought of being alone, or with "the one", on an island, with the beach and sea at your disposal, especially in the night.
That'd be Heaven for me.
Swimming, singing, eating underneath the stars, on a deserted island, away from everybody's eyes.

An ideal vacation...

At home, in the company of my boyfriend. Just plain relaxing and playing around in bed. :)

Simple things like that. No need to go anywhere or do anything else.

I know right ? I so agree ! When I went to Cyprus with my parents, the only thing I saw is the street infront of the hotel and the beach. I asked my parents to walk around, try other stuff, but they weren't up for it.

But when I went to Lebanon with my friends, we went only half a day to the beach. The other days we went around different places...I did so more on this 2-days trip to Lebanon than the 5-days trip to Cyprus.

Anywhere in the mountains. countryside, lakeside is good for me, away from the hustel and bustle of city life, where you hear ambulances all day, and gangs waking up everyone with their loud cheap cars and crappy music. :)

In the fresh air, quiet, with that special someone :hug: ;)

I like all kinds of vacations to be honest! Perhaps just a change of scenery is what I consider ideal. Am in a city, I want to get in to the middle of no where and rent a cottage. Too cold, I want to go to some tropical island. Too hot, I want to go trekking in Lapland.

08-08-10, 07:17
Anything hot, sunny, tropical -- any day. Fiji, Hawaii, California, Jamaica, Maledives... :cool:

At least 10 days, 2 weeks should be enough. Nice beach, water, and compulsory - palmtrees. A mirage of paradise.
