Where is your favourite place to escape to?
|U.S. of A mostly.... on Feb 16, 2011 @ 02:32 pm|
love love love Florida.
Also, NYC-but I'm native so I am biased!
Once I get over my fear of flying, I will return back to Asia/Europe. Places I have been and love:

Really? Mariah Carey loves Aspen? Every appearance I've seen her at she acts so dainty - I can't picture her skiing! (Unless there's something else to do in Aspen I don't know about)
I just like to escape somewhere hot and I like adventure. There's nothing wrong with sitting on a beach and soaking up the sun for a week, but when I choose my vacas I like to be kept busy. And of course, I need to do it in a bathing suit or shorts - I get enough cold weather here in Toronto thank you very much!
|can't pick a fave! on Feb 16, 2011 @ 03:25 pm|
We (the mister and I) have such an eclectic list of things we love to do that it's impossible to pick just one.
Kelowna, BC - we lived there when first married and had season passes to Big White (amazing ski resort, by the way!). In the summer, Lake Okanagan is great for water sports and the hiking possibilities are limitless.
Europe - we lived in Germany for 4.5 years, so we've been all around. We love the city touristy thing (Salzburg, Cologne, Strasburg, Munich are particular faves), and spent an amazing 2.5 weeks just south of Barcelona on the coast. We love history and ancient architecture (cathedrals, Roman ruins, etc etc), and even have been known to visit an art museum or two (though my guy was less thrilled about that).
Southeastern US (coast) - we've been up and down this coastline quite a bit. Myrtle Beach, Carolina Beach, Savannah, and down through Florida all the way to the Keys. Gorgeous and tacky and hot, a perfect combo!
Maritime prov/states - we've been to Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Maine, etc. Nothing like fresh seafood from the surfside markets!
Vancouver Island - ditto
On our bucket list is definitely Asia and Australia, but neither of us has been to either. One city that I've seen twice (and that was plenty) was Orlando. Aside from Disney, there really isn't anything else there to do.

@cathy - I was surprised by Mariah's pick too
I like anywhere with a clean beach, smooth sand and lots of sun! I don't like to be kept too busy though, my vactation must allow me time to read and relax.
|Orlando and nothing to do outside of Disney? Is that possible? on Feb 16, 2011 @ 04:15 pm|
Did you do all of the other theme parks? Universal? MGM? Sea World? Busch Gardens? Have you seen all the beaches? There are a ton of tourist type museums too...and waterparks.
The nightlife there is great as well....and shopping is fantastic!
I like it there-for vacation. I used to live in Florida on the gulf coast-it's quieter (and now dirtier thanks to BP). It's a beautiful place.
|hmm... on Feb 16, 2011 @ 05:14 pm|
I very badly want to go to St Martins
The pictures look so stunning, and it's relatively undiscovered!! Looking at these pics, I so badly want summer to come! I'm so sick to death of the cold, I'm sick to death of no sun and chilly winds.
|hmm hard to choose on Feb 17, 2011 @ 12:34 pm|
My heart will always belong in Europe, so I think my top picks would be Greece (the islands in particular) and Italy. The food in Italy is everything you hear and MORE...and Greece is so full of culture, architecture, and beauty. My goal is to travel to every part of Spain though. Gaudi's work is calling my name in Barcelona.

I was in Barcelona 2 summers ago and it's one of my favourite places in Europe - beautiful beaches, palm trees (my fave) and Gaudi Park is really beautiful.? The park is built at the top of this massive and super steep hill and one of my favourite memories is on our way to the park we get to the bottom of the hill and you just look up and wonder how all the cars and homes can stay in place when they are practically vertical!
The whole city just has an awesome vibe.
