Oh, I've been through the desert on a horse with no name.

I saw this poll elsewhere online (GameFAQs) and decided to use it here, but added a few more fun options. Maybe the extra poll options were prompted by this very cute plushie thing I found in the grocery store this morning, of all places. Had to buy it, too! (I'll show it off at the bottom of this post as a bit of a brag.)
:bobcat: :tumble:

In my case, a vote for 8 is also a vote for 9, since that would be the same place. And no, you don't have to vote for going to the desert if you don't want to go. That's just there for my amusement. :D So where do you think you'd like to go?

My phone didn't catch the colors very well. It was desaturated. I tried applying a filter that makes it a bit more accurate, but it's still not quite there. The fact that it was a cactus was enough to catch my attention, but the yellow flowers was what completely sold me on it.

(Okay, Stomper, just submit this post already before you ramble about other things. Geez.)

I voted for theme park because Disneyland is my favorite place.  :biggrin:

Side note: I can look outside my door and see desert. Yay Arizona?

I voted for a beach resort cause it sounds like the perfect escape from reality for a time. But in reality I would love to travel around the country.

I always feel at home at an amusement park. They're what I dream about most frequently, and there's really no amusement parks where I live after Astrowold closed  :(

Honestly, I've had so much school related things that staying home and getting to do the things I want to do but haven't had time for would be the best! Haven't been able to do much like play Pokemon Sun that I got like a month ago and have wanted to play since the day it came out and draw and make pony related items. Spring break is coming up, so I will get this vacation! Of course I'll still have a little homework.

I was gonna go with a theme park because I love those to death, but I've never been on an adventure-ish vacation before...so I went with that because I've been to Disneyworld 5 times and it's less of a "dream vacation" at this point and more of a "favorite vacation". I also get bored at beach vacations because I rarely just do nothing, so I figure it'll keep me plenty busy.

Honestly, my dream vacations are between two concepts - trips to historical sites of interest to me (Western Europe, Greece, etc.) or places I'd just love to see - a Northern country like Greenland, Northern Canada, or Scandinavian countries. Like, I'd love to see a tundra, they look so beautiful!

I hate the heat, humidity, sun, and bugs, so wherever I want to go, it needs to be at a time when it is nice and cool!

Staying home!  Since an eco-resort where I can do hands on biology or wildlife rehab wasn't listed...

I picked a foreign country...someplace in Asia. I want to go back to China. I was there over a year and there is so much more to explore. I would love to visit Hainan Province. Hainan is an island province of China and the nation’s southernmost point. It's known for its tropical climate, beach resorts and forested, mountainous interior. The southern city of Sanya has many beaches that range from 22km-long Sanya Bay to crescent Yalong Bay and its luxury hotels.

I chose foreign country, I'd love to take a vacation to Japan someday. I'm sure I'd spend a lot of money there if I were to go. :lol:

I chose other. My parents have a lake house that my family has a get together at every summer that I love. It's got fishing, bonfires, water sports, sunbathing, hiking, you can camp OR sleep in a luxurious log cabin. It's a lot of fun (except for the mosquitoes, which I swear are the size of birds).

A foreign country with another culture would be nice, but I want to do several so I choose Going on a cruise ship to visit various places of interest, as I hope there will be guided tours to different historical places at every stop!

Fun fact, an ex-friend of my boyfriend and his girlfriend were on a cruise in the mediterranien to celebrate some relatives birthday. The ship landed in various places in Spain, France, Greece, Italy etc.. but these two people never left the ship. This baffles me still.. I would be first in line to get off to discover!

Foreign country. Although with my navigation that mostly means a city or place with good transport links. I have been to a lot of different countries in Europe, but my only trip further afield was the 3 months in Japan last Spring. I want to go back to Japan very much, but I'd also like to visit Taiwan (I have some uni friends who are now back there) and Korea. I'd also like to visit Canada one day, because my Grandad was stationed there in the RAF during the war and loved it so much he wanted to emigrate (but my Nan wouldn't leave London. If she had, I might have grown up Canadian O.O)

I would also like to visit Switzerland. Some books I read as a kid were set in Austria and Switzerland. I've been to some of the Austrian places but not yet Switzerland.

I'd like to visit Norway and also Iceland. Especially Norway. I have been to Denmark and briefly to Malmo in Sweden but I'd like to see more of Sweden. I really like Scandinavia. It makes a lot of sense to me - maybe it's my viking ancestry :) I also loved Finland very much. So pretty. :)

I'd like to visit Budapest because it's meant to be beautiful. It was a choice the other year between Budapest and Vienna but I chose Vienna because I could also go to Bratislava in Slovakia from there quite easily and I wanted to do that too.

And finally I'd like to visit Lithuania, because we had exchange students from there when I was a kid at school. This was very soon after the collapse of the Eastern Bloc and I think we were one of the earliest exchanges but I wasn't able to go to Lithuania then :( We had  two Lithuanians stay with us and their culture was so interesting.

I love the idea of visiting other places. Those are just some of my hopes, but there are probably more that I forgot.

Not on my list of places to visit are places that are very hot and dry or hot and humid. I would LIKE to visit Cambodia (I sponsor a kid there) and Malaysia and Singapore but I am not sure I could cope with the climate. And I am definitely not wanting to go to the desert ;) Sorry SDS :) I don't do well in hot climates.
