Where would you rather go on vacation: A plush hotel, a secluded cabin, camping or somewhere else?
Everyone has his/her own idea of the dream getaway. What's yours, and why?
Out of these three a secluded cabin - could we make that a secluded stone cottage - because it would mean I'd be on nature's doorstep and I prefer to completely get away from things when I go on holiday (vacation!). My last venture took me to Catalonia in Spain. We rented a small casa high up in the foothills of the Pyrenees and spent a heavenly 10 days exploring and relaxing. Crowded beaches and bars packed full of tourists just ain't my thing.
I love that idea! Did you ever see the movie, Australia? It wasn't all that acclaimed, but it is spectacular!
I havent, but im a huge movie buff so now i have to watch it lol I dont think i'll ever have the money to do that unless my music makes me famous lol
I would choose a secluded cabin because that's my type of scenery. However, I watch a lot of horror movies and bad things happen in secluded cabins haha. Not sure if I'd want to be alone there or not.
For me it has to be a small hotel on the coast which affords excellent sea fishing by day, fine dining on locally caught/reared/produced food in the early evening and a welcoming bar with a real fire in which to spend the latter part of the evening. I'm fortunate in that I get to live this dream at least a couple of times a year!
A weekend stay at New Orleans during Mardi Gras then board a month long cruise to tour plenty of stops in Europe.
Ooooh - fun idea! I haven't done Mardi Gras as an adult - it would be so interesting to see!
I agree with you on that cruise to Europe just not sure if I could handle a whole month being on a cruise, 2 weeks would be better for me.
I agree, past two weeks is overkill. However, I would rather not do the dishes and go to every available port in Europe than come back and wish I had gone. Mardi Gras is always entertaining, as a child or as an adult. Just beware of the drunks.
I love to go to a secluded cabin in the mountains. The beauty and peace are so special. These vacations are some of my best memories.
While the plush hotel sounds good, I think I would be happier with a cabin in East Texas, near a creek or pond where I could fish for catfish. I would not want it to be too secluded, A small town nearby would be nice, if only to find vegetables to go with the fish. Too much of a city boy to completely rough it, although I do know enough to stay out of bull pastures.
When I need to completely get away from people:
I drive to Lubbock, or some place in West Texas, and enjoy the solitude and flat land between here and there. I might even stop and feel the sun burning my skin and my worries away-at least temporarily. In this case, the destination really is never as important as the road. That is because the destination has people and the road only has cars and coyotes - oh, and Dairy Queens.
Marcy...You always ask great questions. Of the 3 choices you have given us, I can immediately choose the "secluded cabin." I'm not fond of camping.......OK, I hate it....went once and griped the entire time. I don't need the luxuries and amenities of a plush hotel, (although this would be very nice for a special occasion week-end) but I really must have some conveniences that a cabin would give me. I like quiet, peaceful and natural surroundings and how conducive a vacation like this would be to relaxation and introspection. I'm all packed, where's the cabin?
A plush hotel with all the fixin's - room service, a private pool or spa. Outdoors is not my cup of tea, besides I live in Montana so the cabin and camping experience would be redundant.
I have several places I'd love to go to and see. 1 in particular would be to stay in a secluded cabin somewhere in Alaska. I'd love to go whale watching. I've stayed at nice, plush hotels before. I've camped in the woods several times and I've been on 6 cruises all over the caribbean but I've never gone to any place like Alaska before.
If I go on vacation I want to be outside. I don't travel places so I can sit inside and watch TV. I would rather be in a secluded cabin or a tent than a plush hotel. When I have used hotels on vacation I did not spend very much time in them. In my opinion the best thing about a nice hotel is the pool but I can do without a pool. I prefer swimming in natural water. Pool water has bleach in it and I find beaches more relaxing than pool areas.
I prefer anyplace on the water, whether it's a condo, a house or a boat. A cruise ship works just fine.
I'd like to take a starship ride to Mars, Saturn and Alpha Centauri.
Do you know where I could find a good, inexpensive starship?
A secluded drifwood cabin on a small, out of the beaten path Caribbean island, in the winter, with the right person of course
I would opt for the plush hotel. While I'm on vacation, I like to feel pampered, which for me would mean no cooking and no cleaning!
I think I would like to take my family to a secluded cabin up in the mountains surrounded by lush greenery. A few days away from technology (TV, computers) and just concentrate on each others' company would be nice.
