    My favorite is Cruising. I love to go on the open water. Being on a Ship makes me slow down. There is no hurry for nothing. That being said, my next vacation is a little over 100 days away....can't wait to get back on the water :D

    I also enjoy cruising. I have been on 5 so far. But my all time favorite is going to Maui and just relaxing and soaking up the sun. Been there 8 or 9 times and am hoping to go before the end of this year. DH favorite is Puerto Vallarata and we go every spring. Sometime I would like to go to Alaska to see the Northern Lights. Been there twice on cruises but no Northern Lights.

    I agree....nothing like a cruise.
    I don't like renting a cabin or a condo, then everyone but me goes on vacation. I still have to cook, clean, laundry....so NOT a vacation!

    Just about any. I love historic vacations, walking through rebuilt settlements like Jamestown, New Salem, etc., going to museums of all most any type from the Mariner's Museum in Paducah to the Museum of Funeral Customs in Springfield, Il. I love going to the ocean. I loved this past June's vacation in Texas with #1 SS, his family and the GGDs then to BATESVILLE, ARKANSAS and MARSHALL's DRY GOODS. In fact, I liked that one so much I'm planning another next year. Even mini-vacs are fun for me---a quilting retreat, painting retreat, a weekend away, I love them all. I haven't been on a cruise yet.

    One where I can explore nature, nothing is on a time schedule, come and go as I please, shop if I want, play if I want, do new things, and not worry about the expense.

    I guess camping, fishing, hiking, exploring, river rafting, antique shops, quilt shops, and just kicking back and realaxing.

    Never been on a cruise. Maybe one of these days...

    I have never been on a cruise but I plan to go on one at some point in my life
    I love just taking time off work, and not going anywhere, just staying at home pottering about and doing all those little things I dont get time to do when Im working.

    That being said, I do like going camping and "roughing it" in a tent and a campfire to cook on every once in a while. Out in the middle of the bush with no power, and the only light at night is the campfire. Lovely!

    When I do NOT have to cook or do dishes.

    When everyone else goes away for a few days and leaves me and the cat at home.

    I always just wanted to stay home and get caught up on everything when I worked. Now I am retired and still enjoy just staying home. I guess this is because my DH spent 20 years in the Army and we moved quite a bit.

    I like to go on cruises, but sometimes it is hard for me to relax on a cruise. I want to do everything!! We like to travel with our trailer and stop and see anything interesting on the way. We can stay a few days wherever we want to. I have a quilter's travel book and check the LQS along the way. I'm retired now and can go whenever we aren't watching the grandkids. Sometimes when I'm away I just need to go home and enjoy my things there.

    I am a homebody, so I just like to be at home with no extra stuff to do. I would love someday to get a camping trailer and go west, through the mountains to the West coast.

    Traveling. favorite vacation driving out to California to see daughter come in on the Abraham Lincoln and lots of great pictures of the ship going under the Golden Gate Bridge week and a half doing fun stuff with her. Then driving to Alaska all 10,600 miles with youngest son the sights we saw. Numerous stops and sights, Going out west and visiting 6 national parks hiking to the top of Angels Landing almost made it was short last short lap due to my husband fear of watching me from the back slipping and sliding. Long fall if you slip off edge. Trip to Hawaii only one we couldn't drive. Goal is every single state in United States and then start over

    Jumping on a plane and going to London. Well worth the 24 hours it takes to get there.

    Traveling in our RV. We make no plans, We get up and hit the road, if we see something 50 miles down the road, that's where we will stop, if it's 300 miles.... you get the idea. Staying off of the Interstates as you get to see real life on the secondary roads. Getting lost is fun.Our goal is to visit every dirt track in North America and watch some grassroots racing at local tracks.

    The Beach! Just sitting in front of the ocean and listening to the waves crash all day long. Feeling the sand at my feet and listening to the seagulls. Swimming during the day and "walking the boards" at night. The Jersey shore beaches are my favorite!

    Snorkeling in Haunuma Bay Hawaii with the turtles or snorkeling off a small boat with turtles any where Hawaii. I also love being home with my children and friends and quilting in my studio eating dark chocolate and talking. Life is good.

    I have been on 1 cruise & loved it! I spent a month traveling in Europe (9 countries) and loved it! I will do both agains. I am driving to Ohio & PA in 3 weeks and am looking forward to seeing some new (to me) parts of our country. I am not a camper - give me a bed & a shower and I am a happy camper!!! It really doesn't matter where, I just love to travel!
