What type of vacation do you prefer: roughing it like in camping or luxurious with everything provided for you?
camping my way up a remote river (that still has clean water and fish in it!) as I fly fish it. Tent and what I can carry on my back should be enough - I might never come back
Definitely have to go with a luxury vacation. I loved roughing it when i was younger, but now I do enjoy the comfort of having things all taken care of for me when I travel.
The less kit I have to carry the better. I enjoy from sleeping in a sleeping bag to sleeping in a luxury hotel, comfortable with either.
Hey Elaine, what's up? It's great to see you.
I prefer luxury over camping, but do enjoy camping.
Luxury for sure. I nice cruise ship and an outside cabin with a private balcony is the way to go!
Sounds marvelous Lily Rose - our next trip should be a cruise (my first). I am looking forward to that.
My husband and I went on our first ever cruise for our honeymoon and we just fell in love with the experience. We haven't been on another one since then, but we desperately want to!
big tip , we tolld our cruise people it was our honeymoon, we got upgraded, bottle , wine & chocolates in the cabin !
was fantastic trip!
love camping but the cruise was good!!
I like a big house right on the crystal clear waters and snow-white sands of the Gulf...oh, wait...
wow...is this a trick question?
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....??
Maybe I should alternate?
lol, nice one Rafini,
I like camping, haven't done it in years, but also would like to travel OS again, as I haven't done THAT in an even longer time.
So many places I like to explore and visit before my bucket list runs out.
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.
What memories will you remember best when your older ?
cooking on an open fire , skinnydipping in the river, toasting marshmallows, exploring nature, laying back looking at the stars
or sitting in a small hotel room ????
travel brings so much life experience you just cant beat it !!!
Cruising is lovely now and then, turning up in a new port !
watching the coastline as you sip wine in the spa with the one you love on a week day !!!!!!
I like saving money, but I really enjoy all the frills. I have to admit I'd take the luxury over the camping. But, if I have an opportunity to take my dog, I don't mind roughing it.
As long as there is a large body of water to jump into, I'm there.
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 love luxury hotels but I still enjoy my annual camping trips, every now and then.
A luxurious hotel would suit me just fine. I tried camping once and I was quite miserable, never again.
I would totally love to experience both. But I have to say that staying in an exclusive resort with the finest amenities would be the height of relaxation.
I prefer luxurious with everything provided for me when traveling. In case forgetting about how much we spent. (in real life, we have to consider the budget)
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 am into luxury. i love Las Vegas. If I move for PA, I would move nearer to Vegas.
I am into luxury places (big...big fan of beaches around the world)
Most of the time I would choose luxury...but I guess when there is too much of something I will start to be bored!
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
Love luxury, love adventure and a challenge.
Dont mind chartering a yacht or even luxury safari camping. the best of 2 worlds.
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.
wherever, as long as a good internet connection is available, for writing for hubpages ;-)
Roughing it, being out with nature, with very few people around. Also like great treks, did the Inca Trail last year, it was amazing.
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!

Have you discovered any "ingredient" that's key to a great vacation?Do you always bring something in particular? Or make certain kinds of plans? Or is there anything special you do to prepare?

If money, health, or safety were not factors, where would you like to travel?Excluding the country in which you live, which country, island nation, or island dependency would be your first choice ... and why?

....which period would you choose?I would like to travel in the future, for example in 2300, to see if the human has destroyed the Earth or if he has saved, and to know the futuristic technologies
