Fiji. I've heard from some friends that the scuba diving and free diving are spectacular. Gotta love that warm water -- a Speedo and a dive knife are all that you have to wear.

Does it have to be anywhere in the world, or can it be anywhere in the Universe?

The Moon! :biggrin:

Good answer, Dale! When I was running my own consulting business, I sometimes spent more time in the deep South than I did at home. Getting back home for my wife and her home-cooked meals and sleeping in our own bed could seem pretty precious.

Me too. The Evo Child's best friend's family rented a place on a private island in the Carribean a couple of years ago and took her. No crowds, they had everything to themselves. They had their own boat, so they could go exploring all of the little islands, ski, snorkle... <sigh>

A private Island would be lovely.

As long as it had a cocktail bar.

the Canaries, no doubt, the best climate all year around. Neither too hot nor too cold and the best island, La Palma, not in the first place for having an outstanding observatory.

My cousin and his wife typically vacation in the Carribean. They book their flights, arrange for the rental of a sail-boat, and pay to have it provisioned to their specs. They cruise around, island-hopping, anchoring and rowing in to enjoy secluded beaches or snorkeling reefs and coves. A week or two later, they are back home, tanned and relaxed with lots of great pictures.

I could really use someplace warm and sunny, a few drinks with fancy straws. My level of stress is maxed out right now.

Stay at home and make models, much better than cavorting all over world wasting fuel.

Ireland-I think it would be such a neat place to go since family on my mom's side is from there. Specifically Galway.

Hmm... *Moonbear contemplates whether she should answer where SHE would go, or suggest someplace to send Cyrus.* :biggrin:

I alternate between desiring vacations in places where there are lots of things to actively do and see...visit some European city, for example, and travel around the surrounding area, find the restaurants the locals eat at (rather than the tourist places), or go hiking, or camping, or visit rainforests or go trail riding on horseback, etc. Those are the vacations that are great fun, but you return needing a vacation from your vacation to catch up on rest after all that activity. And, then, sometimes I just want to go to some all-inclusive resort on a beach...doesn't matter where because they all look pretty much the same...and just relax out lounging by a pool, getting drinks from the bar in the pool, and not doing anything more strenuous than turning pages of trashy novels.

How about a balloon. I hear that it's only 80 days around the world.
