Your best vacation

What was your best vacation ever and why?

I got around a lot, but my 2 best trips (I can´t decide which one was better) are:

- Tansania (2011)

- Costa Rica (2016)

I guess I liked these two most because they impressed me so much.

So many impressions of Jehovah´s creation! Such beautiful landscapes and cordial people….:crush:

Those are some nice albums, both of you (tu) 

 

I've been to both Virginia Beach and Myrtle Beach several times. I love the ocean. Whenever we go, we usually stop off at Luray Caverns as well. I was up at Niagara Falls a couple years ago and it was sight to see for sure.

All going well, this year I hope to attend the special talk in Osaka, and the memorial in Kyoto.  This time it'll be during the Cherry Blossom season, sakura.  So, my best trip may be the one that's coming 😁

Some pics Bob? Would love to see what the beaches are like over your way.

My topi picks would be

Seyschelles, Hawaii, Mauritius Island which included Rodrigues Island, Cruising New Caledonia (so relaxing) 

Any Europe trip ... but love Venice despite tourists ...

Don’t have favourite they all different, for example Mediterranean Cruise was much packed then Pacific Cruises but enjoyed both equally. 

 

In July, I am going to USA and Canada, so again probably not the most relaxing holiday, but I think it’s going to be interesting. 

Perhaps we need sub categories to pin holidays to ( as of favourite) 

 

Ok, Poland is my favourite for food and donuts!

Bob, I will be visiting Niagara Falls soon (Canadian side) on my way from Canada to US

Got a GoPro 7 for “wet videos and photos”  on a Hornblower ..o whatever the name of that boat is ...

Excited as we are staying in a hotel top floor which overviews Niagara Falls :backflip: (until now I even didn’t know such hotels existed) 

Any tips?

My favorite vacation albeit with worldly associates was when we flew to Las Vegas (as our arrival & departure place) and we went to about 6 states, 9-10 national parks and one national monument and put way over 3,000 miles on our rental car. 

 

We had already been to the north side of the Grand Canyon one other time, so this time we went to the south. Imagine being at a beautiful place and you are with people that believe in God “but also believe in evolution”. Because I didn’t feel comfortable praising Jehovah out loud I remember my eyes welling up with tears as I silently thank him for being able to see such beauty.

 

Went back to Zion National Park (Utah) and did the river walk, and Angels Landing. Mike stopped me and had me sit down and wait for him and Mary cause they were going up further where all you have to hold on to was a chain that was nailed(?) into the rocks. 

 

Went to Jackson Hole, Wyoming to the Mill Iron Ranch. Our package included a horseback ride up a mountain. I was in my element there. 😁 After the ride we had a wonderful steak dinner. One steak could have fed 2 people. 

 

Went to Yellowstone. Got to see the boiling pots. Old Faithful had already blew before we got there so we just walked around looking everything over. 

 

As we were leaving Yellowstone and it was dark a big herd of buffalo was crossing the highway, we could see little babies in the headlights.

 

Wow! That was truly amazing seeing Jehovah’s absolutely beautiful creations. 

 

If it wasn’t for the west drying up (fire danger)  I would love to live out there. I love the mountains. But I’ll wait till Jehovah cleans up the earth where everything will be just right.

Canadian side is definitely the side you want to visit. The New York side is behind the falls, whereas the Canadian side has a spectacular view of them. On the Canadian side, the boat is called the Hornblower.

 

Your options are laid out for you in packages, here...

We got the Adventure Pass if I remember. We we're only staying 2 nights so time was limited and we thought it was the best one. There is an amusement park called MarineLand that's just out of town that was nice. Also, if you want to eat, you should drive 10 minutes or so north away from the touristy areas. You'll find the same restaurants but the prices are less.

Great pics! Is that Arashiyama in Kyoto? I’ll be in Osaka and Kyoto for the special talk and Memorial this year. Hokkaido is for next time.

Ah, wasn't notified that I got a reply.

 

Yes, that is Arashiyama. Worth visiting!
