Reading rowall's post about road signs made me think of the most wonderful vacations we've had. In reality, we've never had a bad holiday including the one and only time we drove to Disneyland with 6 year old girls who sang 'B-I-N-G-O' all the way there and 'Ninety nine bottles of beer on the way' all the way back - eep!

Just wondering if anyone would care to share their 'best' and 'worse' holiday adventures?

Did she as ask "Are we there yet?" :thumbsup:

Anyways, most of my holiday adventures are usually fairly decent. My dad, brother and I go fishing a lot for some "holidays" (like memorial weekend, or weekend prior or following the 4th of july). Keeps us busy.

As for actual vacations (for holidays or not), I haven't been on one since 2001 when my family and I went to St. Louis.

One of the best vacations I ever had,
going camping with my dad in '87. We went into the mountains, outside Colorado Springs, (where he lived) and spent a week looking for a ghost town that has been lost. He showed me area's of the mountains that I had been to and never paid much attention to, I was busy fishing, and told me the history of the area and the mines that were there.
It was a great time, one that I will always remember. I think of it a lot since he passed away and I'm glad we did the trip.

One of the worst, when I was a kid, we drove out to Missouri to visit relatives. Enjoyed the family stuff but the weather, humidity, heat, bugs and chiggers. My first encounter with most of that stuff. :thumbsup:

It's wonderful when we have very special memories of certain holidays - and rarely are they of something we saw or bought - rather, they are usually of a person we were with during them.

I suspect that holiday was extra special to your Dad too, Wildabeast, and I'm so very glad you had this time togther and have these memories.. (Truly sorry that your Dad died - very gentle hug).

And yes, both girls asked, "Are we there yet?", Yano - laughing because is there a child in the world that doesn't do that, I wonder? :thumbsup: While the fishing sounds like fun, it does seem as if both you and Yourhighness are both well overdue for a 'real' holiday. Either one of you have something exciting planned for this summer, I wonder?

I have two weeks in July during which I have my bday too, but I tend to have holidays at home, on my little balcony perhaps :thumbsup: dunno. Going for a holiday is deer and I have too much other stuff to cover to afford a holiday. But I got the sea just around the corner and a beautiful city I live in. Plus, hopefully it will be like "home alone" since its school summer-holiday and I hope everyone is leaving town so it wont be too crowded :flowers: . My last "real" Vacation was in November a "long weekend" I did a trip into the past, was rather uncomfy and scary actually. Well nevermind....

Oh gosh, to leave us 'hanging' like that re 'trip into the past' is cruel and unusual punishment - gentle smile.

I too live not far from the ocean and our holidays are now spent on day trips rediscovering our lovely city (Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada). Hope you have a wonderful, wonderful time in July and most of all, make your birthday an extra special day, Yourhighness.

Wow, that sounds like a truly incredible holiday! Love to know why Rome was the worse and Carthage the best part of it.

One thing we never got around to doing was taking a cruise - drat! Bet the service was wonderful and how nice not to have to shlepp suitcases between one hotel and another?

the problem with rome was besides the actual tourist attractions the place full of graffitti we took a coach from the dock to rome and all you could see was graffitti everywere there possibly could be,i mean some of it was anti -sematic some just pure racist it was for me a little bit disturbing but on the other hands the coliseum ,st pauls basilica and the other attractions were lovely.
now carthage on the other hand was fantastic wonderful scenery ,great history and our tour guide fantstic
as for cruise best time ever cannot, recommend highly enough :thumbsup:
