Dream Vacation

  1. Anybody have a dream vacation? Mine would be backpacking in the mountains for about 2 weeks with no cell phone, no computer, no kids, no tv, no problems.Just kind of disappear into the woods and only take what I could carry and just get AWAY
    Stay home, draw the shades, crank the AC and vegetate infront of the TV for 2 weeks with the phone turned off.

    Cant decide which one. I guess the the MPD coming out==me,myself and irene

    14-day Royal Carribean cruise of the Mediterranean (sp?). I'd say 21-day but after the 14th day I'd suffer loss of total, complete, and irreversible sense of reality.

    I would just like to get in the car and take any road that looks interesting and keep going. I would stay off the big interstates and take all of the back roads that I could and go through a lot of little towns. My daughter and I did that going through Vermont a few years ago and had the best time ever. We had the windows down and sang at the top of our lungs to the songs on the radio, stopped and ate at little diners or had a picnic meal in a park, waded in creeks, and stayed at some great little places with fireplaces. No TV but we stayed up late at night just talking. Last year my other daughter and I went camping in Maine and had some great times also just taking any road we came across that looked interesting. We call it "Daniel Booning" because we never know where we will end up and discover new things to see. It's the greatest way to relax that I know of!

    I have two, the first is a bit more realistic though.

    a> 2 week (or more) safari in Africa! I know two people who have been and I dream about it. To quote Kevin Costner in "Dances with Wolves" - "I want to see it before its gone."

    b> I want to hike the Appilachian Trail from start to finish in one shot, 2300+ miles. As I understand this usually takes several months, I guess I'd have to hit the lottery first, eh?

    I am going home for a month....woohoo Missed it for 2 years.

    One week meeting friends in Guadalcanal. One week going snorkelling and diving on an island. One week back to my village then back to Vietnam...geezz am looking forward to this.

    But it's not really a time to relaxed but this is to get away from work , people, noise, pollution for a month.

    I always wanted to go to Yellow Stone Park. I think it would be so fun to go up there and camp and fish! WE camp and fish here, but it's the getting away part that gets me all excited! LOL!

    Jayna......have a great vacation, and post us a postcard here on Allnurses if you can! :kiss

    My FAV - OR - ITE vacation would be spending a week at a nudist colony for adults only.....none of those nude family camps...my nude body would send the kids screamin' to high heaven.

    Anyhoo...........I would lay around tanning all day long sipping on NON alcoholic Pina Coladas and Strawberry Daquiris 'cause my hubby says I'm like WAAAAAYYYYYYY too pale for his taste, and is always telling me to "GET A TAN".....hell....Texas is hot enough, the tan ought to be coming to me INSIDE the house.

    I would only watch the television on the nights American Idol and Big Brother come on during my vacation, otherwise it would be ME and the SUN.......and um.......this vacation MUST be on the ocean....prefer the Pacific coast of course...and hubby can come along if he wants to, but he's not an ocean person like me, soooo...guess I'd have to invite the Chippendales along to dance for me so I wouldn't grow too stiff-necked away from hubby...
