Tiki Asks: When was your last vacation and where did you go?

I’m about to dip out for a vacation to MA, USA and would love to hear where you guys get off to for your own vacations.  Anywhere interesting?  How often do you take your vacations?

    My last vacation I went to Paris France, Normandy France, and London, England. That was back in 2012. I also went on a cruise to Cozumel last year, but it totally sucked and I couldn’t wait to get home, so I don’t even count that as a vacation as much as an inconvenience.

    Well, back in 2013 I took a three month vacation at a homeless shelter in Morristown NJ… wouldn’t recommend it.

    Beyond that, I don’t know, New England is boring as shit and large parts of it need to be set ablaze.

    In March of last year I went to the Czech Republic, with a weekend in Germany. The cost of the flight was hefty (about $1200) but once in CZ everything cost about 1/4 US prices.

    A wee bit longer than 20 yahren ago, I went to Connecticut with my then wife to visit her distant family.

    Good point!
    Definitely the latter, and I am aging too badly for much of the former.
    I’d probably be good for Minneapolis to Chicago, but I don’t see Chicago as a very friendly destination, lately.

    I’m not complaining though, I did a LOT of traveling in the continental U.S. when I was healthier.

    Went to Prague; Ingolstadt, Germany; and Lindau, Germany last fall. Went to Stresa and Intra, Italy this spring. Just came back from Gruyere and Fribourg, Switzerland. Heading out to Dublin in 2 weeks. Will take the ferry to Normandy, France and kill a few days there. Hop a train to Brussels, Belgistan after that for the Brussels Beer Weekend (it is brilliant). Hopefully I still remember how to speak some Irish and French. It has been a while. Note: I still have several weeks of vacation, so I am not sure where to go for Christmas. Germany, France and Switzerland… Read more »

    Just went out camping two weeks in Gaspe, Quebec living among the whales, bears, and francophones. Amazing mircrobreweries and artery clogging camp food, like frying toast in your bacon fat.

    I would have liked to spend some time in Quebec City and Montreal, which are truly great cities. But I was travelling with my dog, R2 (Yes, R2 as in R2D2, but also “Ralph Two” after my first dog) which limits where you eat and sleep.

    The look on my 20 lb dog’s face when he met a 70,000 lb humpback whale was worth it.

    We go to Portland, Maine in October because it’s F’in beautiful that time of year. Even the drive down through Massachusetts is incredible. We have friends that run harvest events all Autumn long, like food tastings, wine, whiskey and beer tastings and we get VIP’d in so that rocks pretty hard.
    Then in February, we go to Fort Lauderdale and crash at my aunt’s time share free of charge. That’s pretty amazing as well.

    my most recent one, I took my family on a 10 day camping trip through California. Started at the sequoia forest for a couple days, then went to just south of Monterey. Visited the aquarium and stayed 2 nights in Big Sur on the coast. Hung out at the beach for a bit. Ended up outside of Ventura in a small town called Ojai. It was a lot of fun. Last year we went on an Alaskan cruise. That was well worth it. Would love to do that again. The best part was when they took us into Glacier Bay.… Read more »

    Last hol was 2 years ago, damn. However it was a major vacation and expensive, we went to San Francisco, Monterey, Carmel and Big Sur then drove to Vegas for a week and then back to L.A. for another week.
    It was magnificent and horrible at the same time (bad cos of the in-laws who came with us)
    Next April was thinking of a cruise to Mexico but might drop the cruise part due to rising costs and end up just doing a stay there.

    I loved Mexico. Past tense. For the past 10 years Mexico is off my travel list. Too much risk. I would suggest that you pass on Mexico.

    Next time I am in the region (perhaps next spring) I will go to Nicaragua. It has recovered and at the moment is a safer choice.

    Really even in the touristy areas? When I checked the google said the northern half of the country was dangerous but the other half was ok. Didn’t really have a backup plan, maybe Syria, Lebanon or North Korea, unless haha you think there are not a good idea either.

    Syria is a bit dry and I hear the nightlife leaves a lot to be desired… however, I get your point.

    Mexico is not a war zone. But my personal feeling is that you could do better at the present time with other countries in Central America.

    Hell, go to Puerto Rico. The island is beautiful. Nice beaches, small rainforest, good food (if you can acquire a taste for mofongo…). I loved it there.

    Thanks for the advice, it’s certainly something to think about.
