“Chilling out on the bed in your hotel room watching television, while wearing your own pajamas, is sometimes the best part of a vacation.” — Laura Marano
Your time away should be invested in the things YOU want to do. If you go to Whatever Town you do not have to do The Usual (as conventional wisdom would have you do).
For example, Panama has the Panama Canal and that’s a great place for geek overload, watching the trains and water and ships going to and fro. But Panama has world class wildlife viewing opportunities and great beaches too. Santa Fe, NM, has wonderful art shopping, museums, and open-air opera. But it is in easy distance of great hiking and camping opportunities too. Peru has archaeology, indigenous crafts, museums, and history – but it also has Amazonian wildlife and is an emerging food destination. – Jane Emmons
Do what you want to do! Some of my favorite holidays are when I have a central theme. Once my trip was around cathedrals in France. Cathedrals have more than crosses, they have art and history. Going from cathedral to cathedral I experienced some beautiful countryside. No wonder there were so many wars over the beautiful, fertile Lorraine Valley.
In mid-February my daughter, Lori and I are going to Oahu and Maui for a few days each. I am sure we will unlikely spend more than an hour or two on the beaches, as beautiful as they are. Oahu has much to see and do, Pearl Harbor, Cultural Museum and Sangria La (Doris Dukes house). On both island the vistas and walks will be magnificent I am sure. More photos for my webpage!
