Going to Ashland Oregon for the Oregon Shakespeare Theater. It will be the final performance of the season. We will probably also spend a day at the Oregon Caves.

I enjoyed Monkey Mia. I was worried about the dolphins nit coming but I should have worried about the crowd. There was 250 to 280 people which was okay but a few weeks earlier 700 which would have been too many to see the dolphins.

Chelle,I wear a bug proof shirt when mosquitoes are worst. I Purchased mine from REI, but they are available from many sites. And I also use DEET bug spray on any exposed skin. I hope you have a great time on your trip, it sounds wonderful

I will take two mini vacations in September. I am meeting friends at the coast of Oregon, they are renting a cabin at Cape Mears. I am sure we will do lots of hiking and playing music. And I will go with other friends to hike in Gifford Pinchot national forest in Washington. We are sharing an Airbnb and hiking to Indian Heaven Wilderness

4 weeks yesterday until hubby & I head on our annual trip to Lake Garda, Italy! This year we are taking 3 weeks away and during our first week we are taking a mini-trip up north to Austria and then across to Slovenia and back down to the Lake via Venice.

I am so excited to get away from everything for a while! I am just hoping I can manage to get less insect bites this year, as the itching is so draining! Anyone any tips on that?

I went to South Africa about 20 years ago. Enjoyed the trip, saw lots of animals. Sadly its not safe in many places. I went to Bunderberg about 8 years ago, I was thinking of moving to Hervey Bay but ended up in W A which I like.

Iam in Webster, NY. I came here 2 days ago to be part of a reunion. 40 years ago, when I was in high school, I was part of a flag and rifle drill team that competed and marched in parades. We marched again in the local parade and had a picnic. I have not spun my rifle in 40 years but it is funny how some things come back to you. We all were better 40 years ago but boy we had fun!!! Today I must go home and back to work but I sure am glad I made this trip. Not quite the regular vacation but it was a great time.

Ania and Shelley, those sound like great trips! Shelley it will be great for you to reconnect with Levi and your extended family. Ania, nice to escape the winter chill.

My next trip will be in July to Los Angeles. My nephew is getting married there. I will meet up with my family, and the bride's family will be flying in from France. We'll have a long weekend together. I hope to visit a great art museum while I'm there; I'd also like to go back to the La Brea tar pits.

There is no such thing that I have not traveled for more than 2 months. Often I go to new places for a couple of days at the weekend having picked up a hotel with the help of planetofhotels.com/en/ and car rentals as well. It turns out that I save on vacation and have time to visit many countries.

Next trip will be a 2-night camping getaway to the Dry Tortugas. It is primitive camping, so it'll be interesting to plan meals/toilet paper/etc haha. Definitely bringing the snorkel gear! I hope the nights are clear (no clouds) so I can see a million stars.

Bodyjoy7, That sounds like a wonderful trip! I have only toured the coast of Italy on a cruise. I have always wanted to see the dolomites and to sync a Terre region. What a great trip!

Pillar point, it is very moving that you are honoring your momís last wishes. And that you will see your family.
