There are so many places where we can go for a travel. If you get a chance to choose where to go this year, where will you go ? To a beach or mountains ? Or went for a shopping with metro life :) Or enjoy hiking and camp in mountains ? For me, i like to go to mountains. Enjoy some fresh air, with so many trees, and enjoy some villagers' food. Healthy, fresh and give your mind a little rest. Please, give me your thoughts.

This year we'll be going to the western Caribbean (Cozumel, Ocho Rios and, Grand Cayman) on a cruise. Its not my ideal vacation, Id prefer the souther Caribbean or cruising through Eurpoe but its better than staying home. Im a beach girl all the way. I have a long list of travel wishes but topping the list is Bora Bora. I can definately see your attraction to the mountains though. It always seems so peaceful there.

I love, love, love the mountains! I want to live there, I want to die there. When I lived in British Coulmbia, Canada I was surrounded by the Rockies. I loved them. I feel relaxed and cozy in the mountains. I guess I'm just a mountain momma. No mountains here in Florida, so I miss them. I love the beach too, but not the beach here. It is nice white sand, but the waters are trecherous full of sharks and man-0-wars. I hate the beaches in the Gulf of Mexico, you can rarely even swim in them with the red flags flying all the time, so I don't even bother to go.

Wow..i have a die hard fans for mountains here...:) I understand your feeling about being relaxed and cozy in the mountains. Me too.. I mean i like beaches too, but mountains give you a feeling of back to nature and grace how actually beautiful our world really is. With green field, cozy air, friendly neighborhood.

i really love to go anywhere. i'm an adventurous type of gal, so flexible and would want to explore the world. of the hectic schedule that i'm having considering that i'm a student and also working, i always make it to the point that i could find a time to relax and forget the city lights and the noisy streets. considering my place, what i'm more convenient to have my chilax mode is on the beach. a lot of beaches are surrounding my area so basically i get to spend much of my free time there. when choosing a beach i am not picky but would want to try different resorts in the place. as for now, since i've spent much like all my vacation days on the beach which i always have liked, i want to try or go for mountains as of now. actually i've done having my vacation on mountain provinces but not really enjoying the time to get the chance to do climbing and camping. i want to try those things as well as just having a picnic with friends on a grassy area anywhere on the mountain. i'll surely find time to explore this new venue!

I'm an adventurous type of person. Between beach and mountain, I like to go to the mountain and enjoy mother nature. I have tried to hike around 3 to 5 times already and I really enjoy it.

hi jc! i like hiking up to the mountains too but this time, i prefer going to the beach and take a swim in the cold waters of the sea! ^__^ in fact, we just had a beach outing and island hopping at the Hundred Islands in Pangasinan, Philippines. it was so much fun! i love the water! it was so clear, clean, calm, and cold. i am actually a bit afraid of oceans and seas because of the big waves and too big area where i can get lost ^__^;;, but at the hundred islands, it was different. since the part where we swam was surrounded by small islands, it was shielded from big waves. and the weather was fine then so there's no occurrences of large waves. that's why i really enjoyed it there and it made me love swimming again.

I do like mountains but mostly i love beaches. I am a beach person so i think i would prefer the beach as it really like sea water, hearing the sound of the waves, the breeze, the air at night. Enjoy foods especially seafoods. It's very relaxing and peaceful for me.

We love going on beach vacations but we do go and take vacations up north in the woods quite a bit. We live in an area where we are just a couple of hours away from areas where people have a lot of cabins and do a lot of camping. We are lucky to have friends that have family cabins so we can just stay with them and we have rented secluded cabins before too. So I would say if we are going somewhere far away it would be the beach and warm climate. Where we live it is usually below 40 degrees for over half the year so warm weather is a must half way through it.

I prefer the beach by far.I like the sound of waves, not to say the excitement of everyone present there. However, this must be during a sunny day. Or else, it won't be fun at all. nothing is worth a swim/bath in the warmth sea water. Hey, this discussion is giving me temptations to go to the beach right now. But I'm at work. Poor me!!!

I love going to New Hampshire and the mountain area there. Hopefully if things work out this summer after my surgery I can take some time to go to New Hampshire. I would also love to go down to Virginia and visit my sister down there.

I long to go out to a beach, the temperature here is getting hotter everyday and a swim in a beach is the only way to cool out. But I'll be having a summer class so I can't go to the beach... huhu... poor me! Anyway, I got to enjoy mylot this summer...

This year, I'll go to mountain. Because every year I went to beach. Now it'll be change. I think like you. Go to mountain always make me have fresh air, comfortable. It's practice skill of climbing, good for health.

I like to travel around seeing a variety of different scenery. Most of all I adore seeing white sand beaches with gently waving palm trees. I so enjoy swimming and snorkeling in the warm blue ocean. I love to see the colorful coral and pretty fish. I love to explore, meet the local people, see the native wildlife, go caving, climb mountains and bathe in waterfalls. I have been to some countries that have been perfect for this sort of mix of relaxation and adventure. These were Samoa, French Polynesia, the Cook Islands, the Maldives and the Seychelles.
