I've never taken a vacation, so, um, I think I'd say camping...wait! No! I want luxery!! But, if I'm on vacation...I'd want to leave TV behind, and all that electrical stuff...so I'd go with....camping! But, there's all those bugs and things....nope, I'd hafta take the luxery. Fer sure...I think....??
overseas sounds good. I almost convinced myself to go to Hawaii last year (but then I bought my own home - much better choice!) someday I'd like to visit Europe, Australia, Jerusalem, China, Japan, Alaska....okay, why don't I just say I'd love to travel? IF it were ever to become affordable, that is.
would love to stay on a beach, with a cottage where I can grill fish or anything, walk and pick up sea shells, then swim again and at night I can gaze at the stars and swim, and for a short distance away there is a night life where one can go -- bar etc.
and a bf where I can force him to eat whatever I cook and then enjoy the surroundings, then we can walk together day and night gazing at the stars at night.
It depends on my mood. Sometimes I want to spent my times on nature environment, in that case, I prefer camping. However, I don't deny sometimes I like going vacation with everything prepared. Sleep in the Five Star Hotel, going to luxurious place riding a Ferrari is my dream.
I tried camping, the rough version once, and it was ok. Since then I've spent time in a camper and I loved it. I can even see myself living in a camper full time All the amenities of home, but totally peaceful. A way of having the best of both.
I've taken a cruise, and that was fantastic! Talk about luxury, free to do whatever you felt like doing, whether on board or at the ports of call.
I also would love to get a room in a luxury hotel in NYC. The past three years I've had to go to NYC very often, from May through August. I thoroughly got used to the noise and the hustle and bustle. A favorite thing I found were the street vendors who sold fruits, breads, meats, vegetables and fresh flowers. I'd pick out something to eat, go get a coffee from the vendor on the corner, then find an empty bench and enjoy people watching as the sun came up. Nothing like a steaming cup of coffee nice and early in the morning sitting on the bench and enjoying the lovely weather.
I'm a sort of adventurous traveler so I think a camping-like vacation would be the best for me--a mountain trek, or a roam at the finest cities like Rome with my backpack, jeans with torn seams and old travel shoes will always be great!
'Had to stay in a good hotel though. But not in a luxurious one. I enjoy traveling, especially if I don't shed bucks. And I don't shed bucks for accommodations, I'd rather spend it for the souvenirs and for printing my captured moments from an old still camera.lol
may favorite is trekking which combines luxury AND adventure - rather than backpacking with a 60 lb pack for a 2 week trip, trekking helps build the local economy and lets you actually see something other than your boots as you trudge along.
we did a 2 week trip to the Huayhuash in Peru, spending most of the time at 12,000 or higher, and crossing a 15-16,000' pass on many days. no way i'd still be able to do that self contained.
I love both. I've been camping for almost my entire life - and that is tent camping, none of that RVing stuff. It is my time for peaceful contemplation, hiking, teaching my children about nature and the environment. Also enjoyed time at luxury resorts in the Caribbean where I could just sit on the beach and read, splash in the ocean, and eat to my heart's content! Travelling and vacationing in different places and different styles is a joy!
I would want to be totally spoiled! There's no way I'm "roughing" it out camping, sleeping with bugs or eating fish that I just watched someone gut and clean! Nope it's hospitality, good food, good company and SHOPPING!! lol!!
I prefer "roughnecking in the woods" vacations. When I take time off, I want to "get away from" the real world, technology, rat-race, pressures of every day life. I use my vacation time to Rest! I go for peaceful and relaxed vacations. Usually in an area where there are no people within several acres at the closest!
