Question for January 20, 2019

What is your dream vacation?

TBD

Cruise Ship for a week somewhere...?

 

Tropical Island, Palm Trees, Beach-Surf-Bikinis,...?

 

Neither of those two, what else have you guys got?

Question for January 20, 2019

 

What is your dream vacation?

 

Glad to see others have said cruises, I love cruises but was recently mocked at work for this, I suppose they're not really "in fashion" at the moment, but I've been on a few (admittedly all as a child) and I thought they were AMAZING. Great food, fun activities, swimming all while on the ship, getting to visit a new destination every day or every couple of days, it was amazing I'd do it again in a heartbeat! Sign me up for a month on the Med!

 

OH wants to go back to Thailand, I haven't been able to enjoy thai food since the last time we went (and the second half of that trip after an, er, unpleasant few days) I would go back there if he really wanted but it's not top of my list.

 

I'm lucky to have traveled to a lot of places in the past and while I enjoy visiting new places, learning about the history and the culture- I'm afraid what I really love the most is being warm and swimming. Anywhere it's sunny and there's a pool has my vote.

That's a tough one, due to so many different ideas, so I'll go with a more outlandish one...

 

I want to go to LanETS, and participate in the HWBot World Tour.  Kind of a dream thing now though, since it wasn't done last year, and more than likely won't be done this year either since it was Trouff's baby, and he kind of left HWBot.  So unlimited liquid nitrogen over the weekend (plus a live competition using someone else's gear, mwa ha ha ha ha!) PLUS about two weeks or so in a city I've wanted to visit for quite possibly thirty years now.

In light of the recent snow, and the shoveling and chipping off of ice, I'd say anywhere warm where they serve drinks with tiny umbrellas in them.

 

Ah screw it, I'm a cold-weather man. Send me to Iceland where I can see how the hardiest of Vikings lived. Or Norway.

I took my dream vacation in 2013. Greece and Italy. Specifically, Santorini, Venice, and Rome.

 

Santorini:

My next two dream vacations are Paris, France and RCon.

I'm not sure.  All of my vacation plans are rooted in reality.

 

I'd like to spend a week or two in Japan.  I'd also like to spend a week or two on a Rhine river cruise.

 

I'd also like to see the Cirque du Soleil show "Kà" in Las Vegas.

Hey, @Crowley... you didn't answer the favorite movie/series question :ph34r:

What? Bother...

 

It should be obvious from the jedi hamster, right? 

 

Star Trek, of course! Except for the JJverse. Glad movie 4 got shelved, and instead we're getting more Discovery, a Section 31 spin off, and more in the pipeline.

Question for January 21, 2109

 

What historic figure would you like to meet?

 

I'd say The First Duke of Wellington, but I doubt that he would condescend to talk to me. ("The Scum of the Earth, enlisted for drink.")

So perhaps George Orwell.
