Friday Five - Vacations!

Check out the [community profile] thefridayfive for this week!


1. What was your favorite childhood vacation?

When I was maybe 11 or 12, we went on a family vacation to Yellowstone park. Now. This was in the 60's and we drove from Buffalo, NY to Wyoming. Towing a camping trailer. I don't remember any of the tedious driving (probably because I had my nose in a book!), but I remember Yellowstone and Mount Rushmore (before it became a horrid tourist trap!) and the Badlands... and we were in gods-country-nowhere one night and ended up in a hotel room because my folk had no idea where to find a campground. We had never stayed in a hotel before, so that was an experience.

2. What is your dream vacation?

It's an odd dichotomy...

I want to get on a cruise ship and just go around in circles for two weeks. I don't care about destinations, I love the water and the ambiance of a cruise and can do that forever.

But I'd also like to get in a car and just drive, with only a vague destination and no deadline. So can stop at that silly roadside zoo, or stay for the local production of whatever play is going on, or browse through a local museum.

3. If you could take a trip around the world, what locations would you be sure to include?

If I could travel without having to travel (if that makes sense), I'd love to go to Paris, and on a Safari in Africa, and to Antarctica, and to visit some of my fandom friends who live around the world, so they could show me their home towns!

4. Do you prefer vacations to new destinations, to familiar destinations, or a mix?

A mix, I guess. I'm happy with re-visiting the familiar places and spending more time finding little things I've missed before. But the grand 'you must see' things can be fun!

5. What activities would you plan for a two week staycation?

Well, that's kind of my life now, now that I'm retired. But I'm thinking about a "museum day" and a "let's see the town nearby day" to make sure I don't vegetate in the house (but if I'm not home, I don't have time to write!).
