Well, it is just a short vacation with my friends and hubby. It was last year, we went to the province. We rented a swimming pool with a big cottage there for 2 days. It was really fun since I really don't get to see my friend so often because we've been busy.

It wasn't much of a vacation but I did get to spend four days with my best friend in Hawaii, at her wedding. It was beautiful and wished I had stayed longer but since the hubby did the bookings LOL he didn't want me staying longer than four haha.

The last place I went was to West Palm Beach, Florida to visit with some family. We only stayed for the weekend but had a good time. We spent some time at the beach and got nice tans. We got to see family members that we had not seen in a while and it was nice to catch up with them. It was nice and I look forward to going back when I can afford the time and expenses.

Well our last getaway or mini vacation was to LA to Disneyland. We took our kids and stayed in a hotel and did a 2-fer (CA Adventure park one day and Disneyland the next day). It was a nice little weekend trip. I guess our last real vacation was a few years ago when family came down from Louisianna and stayed with us and we hit up beaches, etc., and then we all flew back to Louisianna to visit family. However - that state in the summertime is not much of a vacation and in the future we have all agreed to make it a family trip somewhere to actually vacation - Orlando, New York, anywhere other than the South... :-)

Just came back from a long break to Europe. Still sorting out my pictures and cleaning out the dust that collected in our home during our absence. Man, the crap that collects at home when you are not around. It is amazing! Be a little patience. I am still trying to start a web blog or something on the adventures we had in Europe. I really do home I can get my lazy butt up and about to get it completed. :p

there is this vaction spot here in the philippines called boracay. it is an island beach where the sand is white and the grain is as fine as sugar where you can walk barefoot without that burning sensation even when the sun is up at 12 noon! full of coconut trees, pure and pristine clear water, not wavy very calm. there are water activities like snorkling on the side of the island , jet ski by riding a speed boat to get as far away from the beach and nestled on one of the floating bamboo huts thousands of meters offshore and jet ski. do para gliding and para sailing. and if you want to do some extrme water sports , one could ride a tricycle (motocycle with a passenger seat on the side)going to the other side of the beach where one can go surfing and other stuff.it's fun.

Hi! I am also in need of a getaway! A summer getaway that is. My last was last year, my friends and I went to a beach in Batangas and then days after I've arrived home my mom and cousin and I went to our province in Ilocos and went to the beach again. LOL. I'm planning to do the same this year. Although this time, I'm thinking of having a reunion/get together sort of thing with all of my friends and we'll be staying in the beach and have drinks and chat and take lots of pictures and have fun before we all start working and applying for work. Cheers!

You know, it's funny because we moved away from family 2 years ago. Every time vacation time comes around, we return back home! I miss being near family so I do not mind at all and my sons love their grandparents. We are going home again for vacation in the summer and probably for the next vacation. Maybe my husband and I will take a real vacation when the boys are adults.

I haven't been on vacation in years. I think the last place that I went to on vacation was Florida back in 1997. We really had alot of fun. We always do when we go there. I would love to go back some day soon but we haven't had the extra money or the time to yet. We loved to sit on the beach and put our feet in the sand and walk up and down the beach and get in the ocean every now and then.

We haven't been on a vacation in a few years. But our last vacation was to Gatlinburg Tenn. I love that place. We went to a comedy show in Pigeon Forge. Horseback riding in the mountains. My horse kept bucking because of the horseflies but I stayed up. We went through the shops,aquarium,played hillbilly golf, and just walked the strip. We stayed in a chalet that had a hot tub and jacuzzi. We had a wonderful time. I am hoping to go there again soon.

My husband & I went for a mini-vacation to a cute little place called Cambria in California. It is only a few hours from where we live outside of San Francisco. It was a nice little quaint town with antique shops, gift shops, arts & craft shops, etc. Nice restaurants too. The hotel we stayed at was called the Cambria Pines Lodge. Our room was more like a suite. It had a large sitting/TV area with a couch & 2 comfy chairs as well as a gas fireplace. I small dining area with a sink, coffee pot & small frig. The bedroom was nice & big with a king sized bed (it was heaven compared to our little full-sized one at home)! The bedroom also had a gas fireplace too! There was a door off the bedroom that led to a nice balcony overlooking the forest. The lodge had a nice restaurant, a beautiful garden that you can walk through (like a mini botanical garden) and a vegetable garden where they grow their own organic veggies for their restaurant. There was an outdoor pool and a large jacuzzi too. I wish we could have spent more than 1 night there. We went this past New Years day for a little get-a-way. I'd definitely go back there again some day. I hope you get to take a nice & relaxing vacation soon. We are going to Disneyland in about 3 weeks! First time for my family. Only going to be for one night & 2 days, but I'm sure we will have fun. My son is 13 years old and he is really looking forward to it.

Last time I had a real getaway in 2006, and that was in Las Vegas, and I am way overdue for a vacation. I am planning to take my daughter to San Diego in June for a few days.

My last vacation was the end of last June and the 1st of July. I went to Florida like I usually do. I attended my nephews wedding. My brother lives within two miles from the beach and my sister lives about 30 miles from him. So that is what I usually do for my vacations since that is the only time I get to see them, plus I always have a free place to stay. I have a vacation planned for June again this year, but depending on gas prices, I may or may not be going.

Well I haven't been o a true vacation in years but a couple of months ago we did get to go away for the weekend and that was great. We went to Universal Studios in Orlando, which is only a couple of hours drive from us. We got a hotel over there for two nights and went to the parks. Even though there are many rides I can't go on I really enjoyed it. We were lucky since we went off season they weren't crowded. My niece who is 13 really had a blast with all the rides and meeting the different characters. Ok I admit I liked meeting Shrek, Fiona and Donkey not to mention X-Men , Scooby Doo and Shaggy or The Grinch. I'm a big kid at heart. We did splurg and eat at Bubba Gumps while there. The food was incredible and worth the price. I could go there just for that. Since the price for two days was equal to us getting an all year pass for residents we did that. This way if we get some extra gas money and such we can go back sometime this year.

my last vacation was at our province and in Puerto Galera here in the Philippines. we have so much fun there as we enjoy to do some snorkeling, riding a banana boat and taking some pictures. right now, our family was planning to go to baguio city (one of the coolest place in the philippines) and also to visit some of our relatives there. it's been a long time since i last visited baguio. as far as i can remember, i was only just 7-8 years old that time and right now i'm already 22 years old. time flies really fast lol

We usually try to go on some kind of vacation once a year. The vacation I liked the most, was when we went to Silverton, Colorado. We live in Oklahoma, it took us all day to get there. We loaded the motorcycle up in the back of the truck and off we went. I loved it there, we got to ride the trails up in the mountains, places that you can't see any other way, you can rent Jeeps if you want to, but I imagine it can be expensive. We seen ice caves, and found this little lake, that nobody hardly gets to see, its in the middle of these two mountains and it was beautiful. If my mother seen the kind of trails we rode on, she would have a fit. We did pretty good, I was scared at first, but I got used to it, it gets kinda rough sometimes. My husband has been riding motorcycles for years in fact he raced them at one time, so I trusted him, that he wouldn't knock me off. There was only one trail that we went on, where it was so rough I had to get off and walk down it, my husband barely made it down on the bike by himself. But I would love to go there again, and maybe this time camp. I took alot of pictures tho.
