    So lets share some of our Holiday Experience.

    My dad and brother have both set themselves on fire starting campfires.

    My dad once put me and my brother in the car and showed me how to drive. Then he let us by ourselves drive around the camp grounds (out of view) to grab fire wood people left behind!

    Not a holiday but my dad would often take my brother or I out and let us drive the snowmobile around on the lake (with him sitting behind us)

    My dad took us to the these falls where we would then jump of a cliff into a man made water hole. And my mom took us to the rapids up north and in the calmer areas we would jump in and get taken down the river a bit(People have died there before :eek: )

    When we were older and would go to my dads cabin out in the bush we would tie a sled to the back of the snowmobile and take turns speeding down a country lane with one of us on the sled.

    My dad once let me take the snowmobile out by myself and told me to try going farther off his property. I did and ended up driving it off the trail (which was snow covered train tracks) and had to walk a few miles to someones house to call him.

    Not so much a holiday as Temp deployment.
    Went to Key West Florida for 2 weeks.
    Except for the psycho chick (only found out later) still ranks as the best time of my life.
    Surf, sand, night life were all superb and and the sunsets make you contemplate your place in the universe.

    Duval Crawl...FTW.

    :D

    The first one where the kids could swim by themselves in the pool, it were bliss. I read several books in those two weeks, watching them out of the corner of my eye :D

    Depends on the bug, I'd imagine.:D

    The microscopic ones that wreak havoc on your internals can't be all that appealing.:p

    The best holidays I have ever had are in Austria. We go to the Austrian Lake District in the Summer and before Christmas for the Christmas Markets. Salzburg is so magical in the snow. In the summer the lakes are warm enough to swim in and there are the high pastures are filled with wildflowers. We take pic-nicks and go walking all day long. We plan to get the dogs Pet passports and take them next summer. The place seems to make us all feel well and in Summer my Gran who is 96 this year comes along. :)

    If I could speak better German I would consider emigrating there.

    A few years ago I went to Boston in July and was lucky enough to see Humpback Whales with their young off the Massachusetts coast. The adult females were huge as big as a single decker bus. I will never ever forget that!

    Backpacking around Greece. It was amazing we went to
    Athens obviously good to see the Acropolis we could see it from our hotel balcony. The hike up there not so good
    Delphi one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to
    Meteora lovely setting and the interior of the monstaries are really gorgeous
    Santorini I got very bored of very quickly
    Crete we saw King Minos' palace where the minotaur supposedly lived and did a beautiful trek in the Samaria gorge
    Hydra which is great because there's no mechanised transport it's all steps so no bloody scooters. Plus the snorkelling and kayaking was fun until the sunburn ouch.

    I want to go back there's just so much to explore. Even if you just go to lie on a beach and get drunk try to at least see some of it outside your resort it's a fascinating country

    watching people all oiled up trying to get on their lilos in the sea and sliding off them and us howling with laughter at them

    falling asleep on our lilos and ending up about a mile from the shore and having my best mate tow me back in

    i have never laughed so much in all my life.... that holiday will never be beaten!
