I also really liked these on my old board... I had so many posts before and there was some glitch at the time with pg.org where accounts were being locked so then I had to make a new one... working on building it back up!!!
Where would be your ideal vacation spot?
For me this would be a nice warm beach somewhere all inclusive woudl be awesome too!
We love to travel. It's rarely a "vacation" because we do so much site seeing and are architecture, cultural and history nerds. We hope to visit South America when the baby is around 2 or 3. I know a lot of people will think that's crazy but we think travel is very important.
Ideal vacation would be a place that has mountains, beach, great food and history. We loved Thailand, Greece, Turkey, Italy, and Spain! All of those have that!
Mmmmm, just laying on a beach and relaxing (with a Mai Tai in hand) sounds just about right. Maybe in a couple of years we'll make it back to FL to visit family again...

Got an opinion? We've got a board! Come join us for some lively debate on the Face Off! Debate Arena board.
I want to go on another cruise. I've been on quite a few, but they were all with my ex husband and most of them don't have pleasant memories associated with them...HOWEVER, I know I'd enjoy them now. I mean, it's all inclusive on the ships (which are friggin awesome) and then they let you explore great places (I've only been to the Bahamas) but man oh man they're fantastic!
I'm not a huge beach person. I like going 1-2 times a year for one day each and then I'm good.
I'd LOVE to do an all-inclusive cruise though. Never done that. Or a European tour, although that doesn't sound quite as relaxing.
Elizabeth, have you been to all those places?! Awesome!
Yes we have been to all of those. Some of them twice. People think I'm rich, but not true. We both make about the same as a teacher's salary. Actually I know some teachers that make more than me. We just live very frugally since we love to travel. We have really crappy furniture and we rent and we drive really old cars (well until recently). But we save and typically go on a trip every 3 years or so. We typically take a really long trip in between moves. Because our jobs don't allow us much vacation time. So whenever we move out of state we take a couple months off and travel before looking for the next job. We also try to travel to cheaper countries. France is not so cheap....so we didn't stay too long. We have been to Spain, France, Germany, Portugal, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Romainia, Thailand, Cambodia, Mexico City, and Puerto Rico. I also lived in Spain for 8 months during college. Next on our list is South America, we've been planning to do Machu Picchu for awhile now. Of course with the baby on the way, our travel savings is getting smaller and smaller. So after Peru, the next trip will probably be Disneyland when the kiddo is like 6. Haha.
Elizabeth, those trips sound amazing!
I am so a warm weather person. We lived in FL for about 4 years and I miss it so much. It's nice to be home with family again(Chicago area), but I miss the warmth year long. So ideal vacation for me would be anywhere warm with beaches. I would also love to do a cruise somewhere.....and would love love love to see Alaska(yea I know way off from my warm wishes, but ya know. lol)
