plane, train, or automobile?

East coast or west coast?

Hawaii or Caribbean?

Mountains or beach?

Favorite vacation spot?

Dream vacation spot?

RV or tent?

Lake, pool, or ocean?

If money was no issue, it would be a plane. But we usually end up driving. Or staying close enough to home so that we can drive. I'd love to do a train trip. I looked at it once to go to NYC...and it was more expensive than flying.

I'll go to anycoast if someone else is paying.


Both please. Fine. Beach.

Caribbean. All of it. But especially Honduras.

Bora Bora. Is that where you always see pictures of the huts over the crystal blue water? That's where I want to go. That and India. I know. I am a contradiction.

RV. But somehow I got talked into tent camping. Remember those prayers.

Pool by the ocean.

Ummm...St. George Island. I was supposed to go on a cruise in February...but I spent that time in the ICU instead. And then tomorrow we leave for the redneck riviera.

Next Vacation is Disney. And then Vegas. Right after the other.

Plane, although neither kid has flown yet. I just don't have that much patience, so we drive and spread the craziness out.

East coast--it's closer

Hawaii. I wish.

I would love to go to a beach, but it's usually mountains.

We go to Gatlinburg, TN every year. Driving. To the mountains.

Italy. Please.

RV or tent? NEITHER!

Lake, pool, or ocean? ANY!

Gatlinburg 2 months ago

I'm thinking Chicago this winter.

plane, train, or automobile? Love the speed of planes, but I get sicker than a dog and it's expensive. So usually auto.

East coast or west coast? West, simply b/c its closer.

Hawaii or Caribbean? Hawaii, b/c I've never been to the Caribbean and I absolutely LOVE HI.

Mountains or beach? Mountains but beach is good too.

Favorite vacation spot? Hawaii has been the best so far.

Dream vacation spot?Need to see Australia someday.

RV or tent? RV w/capital letters.

Lake, pool, or ocean? Hmmmm...don't love the water, but ocean is fun to look at.

Where did you go on your last vacation? Salt Lake City, (rousing, eh?)

Where will you go on your next vacation? I'm thinking Vegas is the next trip on the agenda! Woo-hoo!

Susie said...

I will pray for you but camping is fun! You should have a blast!!

As for me:


West Coast (because I have never been)

Hawaii (because I have never been)


Ohio or Kansas (family reunion spots)

Anywhere in Europe



Ohio (see, family reunion)

Kansaa (for another family reunion)

plane, train, or automobile?
I choose train, money chooses car.

East coast or west coast?
I'd like to try the Gulf Coast or the Hawaiian Coast. I've seen the ENTIRE west coast in the continental U.S.

Hawaii or Caribbean?
Aaahhh, yes, please.

Mountains or beach?
Beach. Hands down.

Favorite vacation spot?
Does the Hilton count?

Dream vacation spot?
Somewhere hot with shimmery, blue water and fabulous sand.

RV or tent?
RV? What is that?

Lake, pool, or ocean?

Where did you go on your last vacation?

Where will you go on your next vacation?
I am vacationing at home this weekend while my husband vacations by climbing a mountain.

I love Friday Follies! (Good luck with the camping ;)

1. depends on where we are traveling - train if through beautiful countryside ( like the French countryside or Italy), otherwise plane.

2. East coast

3. Caribbean

4. Beach

5. Disney!

6. Italian Riveria in a villa on the sea. Oh yeah and add a nanny too ;)

7. RV

8. Lake

9. Berlin, Germany in June for a bicycle race my hubby was in.

10. Wherever we move to next! (I'm lobbying for Bermuda :)

CaraBee said...

Train. I love them. And they're kinda romantic.

I have a ton of friends on the west coast that I haven't seen in forever. So really, I should get there first, but I'm an east coast girl at heart.


Hmmm. Can I have both?

I love Paris. Serious francophile here.

I want to go to Greece. So. Badly. Blame Momma Mia.

RV. Because they have bathrooms. And beds. And refrigerators. And no animals.

Pool. They don't have sharks in pools.

My last trip was to Kansas but my last vacation was to Western Maryland (Deep Creek Lake). Neither are terribly glamourous but it's just nice to get out of town once in a while. Oh yeah, forgot about Chicago.

No idea where we'll go next. Hopefully somewhere interesting.

Michelle said...

Planes. Hands down planes. I am not a fan at all of the other two!

Either. Neither. Whatever.



French Polynesia pretty much rocked! I think I'll have to go with that one.

Hmmmm. I'm not sure. Somewhere that allows me to do lots of different things for a long time with good food and good weather and lots of downtime when I want it. I'm not picky at all, am I?

Ooo that's a tough one. If I have to choose, I guess I'll go with tent.

Ocean. Does anyone have any other preferences, really?


Ummm, visiting the in-laws in STL doesn't count, right? I'm hoping for a bowl game somewhere warm!

Enjoy yours!

plane, train, or automobile? Auto. Road trips can be fun. Especially when you spend them with your siblings telling inappropriate jokes.

I once took the train from Atlanta to D.C. We left in the early evening and travelled all night... so that was cool, getting to sleep in the bed that folds down out of the wall!

Flying is my least favorite way to travel. Yes, it's usually the quickest way. But I don't like the sensation.

East coast or west coast? I've never been to the West Coast. AZ is about the farthest West I've ever been. But if I'm at the beach, I'd rather not go to the East Coast... I'd rather visit the Gulf.

Hawaii or Caribbean? Never been to either. But I think I'd choose Hawaii.

Mountains or beach? Mountains. I'm not a big fan of sand.

Favorite vacation spot? I'd say Disney.

Dream vacation spot? I'd love to do a tour of Europe. Or at least the UK.

RV or tent? NEITHER.

Lake, pool, or ocean? POOL.

Where did you go on your last vacation? Orlando (Sea World) and Tampa (Busch Gardens)

Where will you go on your next vacation? Vegas, baby! Woot! Woot!

Wendy Hawksley said...

First of all, I hope you enjoy your camping trip, and also that the insects and man-eating creatures leave you alone. :)

As for traveling:

Automobile (I hate airplanes! But, of course, that's how I got to where I live now...14 1/2 hours of flying)

East Coast!!!

Caribbean (but neither, really)


Fave vacation spot so far: Maine

Dream vacation spot: Nova Scotia



I went home to Massachusetts on my last vacation

My next vacation will take me hiking around Songtan, Korea. In 2 weeks.

John Deere Mom said...

East coast
Somewhere with just me, my hubby, and a little man-servant to bring me fruity drinks every hour
A dairy
Probably the John Deere plant...good times

Rhea said...

My last vacation was Disney World in June. I'm signed up to go on the SITS thing, but don't know if I'll be able to swing it financially. :o(

Angie's Spot said...

I really enjoy plane travel, but there's just nothing like a road trip. :-)

East Coast


Mountains. Smokey Mtns, yahoo!!

I love Disney World, Maine and the British Isles.

I want to go to Australia somethin' awful!



Hilton Head

Pigeon Forge with some lovely ladies! Can't wait!

Anonymous said...

Definitely plane.

Usually East Coast, but I've been known to eat the West Coast too.

Definitely Hawaii -- but only Kauai

Italy and Greece

RV (but preferably a hotel with room service)


My last real vacation, I went on a cruise

My next mini vacation is to the Broadmoor in Colorado Springs over Thanksgiving, but my next big vacation is another cruise.

Swirl Girl said...

extreme west coast
RV in Hawaii
Pool on the ocean in...wait for it -- Hawaii
the words 'next vacation' do not compute...

Tam said...


East Coast



don't have one

don't have a dream vacation spot..any vacation would be nice right now


place with ocean and pool

Last Vacation was 2003 for Honeymoon in Gaitlinburg TN

NONE planned in Near Future due to husbands work life...

Heather said...

Hoping you survived the camping trip...

Flying is okay, but I prefer to drive. Through the night, while the kids and husband sleep and I man the wheel.

Never been to the west, but I do love the east.


Hard choice. I love to sit on the beach and soak up some rays, but we always have more fun in the mountains somehow.

Gatlinburg. We've gone almost every year since I was 18, and have so much fun! Disney is a close second.

Definitely Bora Bora. I had that as my screen saver for awhile, but it was too depressing to think that I may never go there.

RV. Without a doubt. Too old for the tent thing, air mattress or not.


Put-in-Bay in Northern Ohio. Good times.

Tennessee, baby! Counting down the days!
