I guess I view a vaction different then others. My wife refuses to go on anymore vactions where she comes back more tired then when she went. She is not going with me to Africa, Grand Canyon, or Aspen this year , but she has not stopped me from going. I found this artical that kind of sums up how I feel I know we all look at it different, but this is how I feel.

I love being outdoors , I get my best business ideas while hiking

Here is the artical ~

Yesterday as I crossed the Blue Ridge Parkway, a
minivan pulled off in one of the overlook spots. A man
and woman stepped out, snapped a few pictures of the
mountains, and then drove away. Is this the typical
American vacation? The mountains are meant to be
experienced, appreciated, and respected by walking over
them, not by driving past them.

I''d rather hike through rain and snow and suffer as I
have been than view nature from a car. I think that many
Americans have forgotten (or never learned) how to
appreciate the beauty of the earth.

We had some friends just come back from Mexico, and they were thrilled to lay around in the sun, eat and drink, and oh.....their big highlight was taking one day to deep sea fish. BLAH BLAH BLAH

When we went with the same couple to FLA, all they wanted to do was swim, sit in the hot tub, and drink. Please. You can do that at home for alot less.
My husband and I like the touring part of vacations. Isn't that what it's all about anyhow

I live here Andrea, but believe me there's those rainy days when I wish I was in Mexico. Can't beat the view here though.
I love Alaska....

Hee Hee I am the vacationer you guys hate. I don't like going anywhere that requires 'work' (e.g. hiking or physical exertion). I live in California..I can do all that swimming, hiking, biking stuff here. My girlfriend goes on vacations and comes back more tired than when she left! Huh?

If I want to go somewhere, it has to be warm and have a beach or warm body of water. Top places to visit on my list are Hawaii, Carribbean, Greece in summer, Jamaica. Of course I have been to NONE of them....yet

I'd love to visit Europe as well..Rome and Paris; though I'm sure on those vacations I'd actually do the tourist things like visiting museums and churches, because you HAVE to. The one other place that does not fit into my summer heat pleasure vacation idea is Scotland...that is one place I would like to visit as I've read some interesting things about the country. Brrr though!

All I can say is try it sometime ~

Sometimes you find yourself in the middle of nowhere and sometimes in the middle of nowhere you find yourself

You go though life one time, enjoy it , experance it.
