Post your summer vacation plans here!

Recommended Posts

Summer is closing in even in the northest parts of the world and so are the summer vacations, thank god. So, here is the thread for Avsim users to discuss their plans to travel and do stuff and perhaps get great ideas from fellow simmers!

 

Okay, here we go! Me and my wife are heading to Rome, Italy and after spending few nights there we take 7 night eastern mediterranean cruise with Royal Caribbean's Navigator of the Seas. I really have great expectations for the cruise, as we were few years ago 8 nights in the Caribbean from Miami with Carnival Valor and we absolutely loved it! Own Balcony is a almost a must!

 

After the cruise, we spend another couple of nights in the historical Rome, so all together, about two weeks is spent on a trip. I have four weeks vacation alltogether and probably rest goes mostly at home with barbecuing and taking a couple of beers, sporting and taking a couple of beers, flying FSX on rainy days and taking a couple of beers, seeing friends, visiting pubs with them and taking a couple of beers, and finally and hopefully, do some driving with my -75 Pontiac Grand Am. After driving I probably take a few beers :Whistle:

Sound's good mate!

 

Me and the missus are off to Crete, a lovely little resort called Georgioupolis on the western side of the island in Chania on the 19th June.

 

We both used to work over there but on the Eastern side in Iraklion, thats where we met 7 years ago and we used to live out there for 5 or so years.

 

We try to get over there at least once every couple of years, there is something magical about the Island and my parents now live out there (cheap holiday for us!!) but to be honest we love

 

everything about it from the people to the food to the crystal clear warm sea.

 

Nice post and have a wonderfull time on you're hols!

Oh man, one of my plans is to move to Florida after retirement, which is a at least 19 years away depending on a career I choose. I'm actually considering to purchase a nice condo over there right now as prices are low and my parents, who are retiring could use that most of the year. But we'll see how that is going...

I am on vacation everyday and work a few days a month. Yesterday we hiked to the top of Koko Head, went swimming on Waikiki and then went dancing.

Back to Miami for my annual week long vaca. Going to be a real fun one this year as we have another addition to the trip, my 7 month old baby boy.

 

We stay in each year one of the Alexanders Ocean Resorts Jr. Suites which is really a two bedroom full condo looking over the beach (south) and inner waterway. Anyone going to Miami I always recommend the Alexander. Great place,location and service.

If only the olympics were in North America this time, those are the only ones we can afford to visit :(

 

Be up shooting my new black powder guns in the mountains, instead...

How is that when it is the Aussies and the Canadians that have all the money now, India is pretty much up there too.

Three weeks travelling around Malaysia with the wife. A couple of nights in Singapore on arrival just to get over the jet lag.

 

Most importantly though flight details: Warsaw to Frankfurt LOT EMB170/5, Frankfurt to Singapore Singapore Airlines B773. Back to Warsaw via Amsterdam, for some reason, same aircraft/airlines.

 

Can't wait :yahoo:

This thread renewed my interest in Greek cruise. Perhaps the hot springs of Iceland sometime.

 

In four weeks EWR to HNL. Next year will be EGLL again (wife's choice). I think that will be trip #10.

This is the best year to go to Greece. Prices are good and the Greek Economy could use the boost in tourism right now. If I could Greece would be my number one choice right now....

 

Japan would by my number 2 choice as hotel rooms and flights to Tokyo are at the lowest ever. The recent earthquake and tsunami is keeping people away. I think right now there are flights from Auckland to Tokyo for $800 to $900....Hotels are booking for around $120 to $160. This is about 1/2 price anyways.

Elgol, Isle of Skye

 

 

 

John

Been to Elgol -- it's a lovely place (I especially recall our visit as it's where a rusty silencer finally blew out on the old banger of a Ford Granada we had at the time).

 

Remember what they say in Skye though; if you can see the mountains it's going to rain.. :Just Kidding:

 

Off to Portugal for 4 weeks in October: holiday + preliminary property-scouting (which doesn't reeeally work in FS, even flying low & slow).
