Round & Round we go, Where we'll end up nobody knows!

With the Better Half's R&R quickly approaching, We have been debating on where to go for our Holiday! While I prefer to take Cruises to eliminate the:
  • Where are going to stay?
  • Where are we going to eat?
  • What are we gonna do?
BH has used his VETO power against the cruise this year & proclaimed we are going to take a "Land" trip.

This is where it gets interesting, Where do you wanna go?
Being an Airline Employee is a Joy & A Curse: Thanks to having ZED (Zonal Employee Discount) fare privileges the world is ours, As long as some airline flies to our destination.

I will be meeting BH in Dubai & while we are there, we do have some wonderful things planned from taking a Romantic Dhow Cruise
(I had to get a cruise in)
to a 4 Wheelin Safari, Lil bit of shopping at the Gold Souk!

Then we'll be departing on 12 of March to: "?????"

Take our poll to the left & let me know where you think we'll end up!!

I really think you should consider Brisbane Australia for your trip! The weather is great, & the people well, the people?? I'm here! :-)

I am totally with you on the cruise...no stress about anything and you can do the land thing at the pit stops. But if I had to pick I would totally go to Croatia.

I really want the Cruise too,,, However, June BH Will come home & September will be his next R&R & We will be doing a "River Cruise",, We are very excited about that one!!!

I am biased so I will suggest Jordan, only 3 hours from Dubai and plenty to see and do (you still can take a boat around the Gulf of Aqaba and go snorkelling or diving).

Wherever you end up going have fun and enjoy and don't forget to check your entry VISA requirements.

Cruises are a wonderful way to see many places at once, and just as you said- to eliminate "where am I going to sleep? Where am I going to eat?, etc." When I worked on a ship, I felt so blessed to be getting paid to sail around the world, without having to answer these questions myself :)
(Although it was an educational study abroad venture, not really a cruise per-se)

Now- as for where to go- I think you should go to Seychelles! I have wanted to go there for years! My friends honeymooned in Dubai and flew to Seychelles on Emirates. They loved La Digue, which is the larger island in Seychelles. (I have not been there myself though.)

But Greece and Thailand were both pretty awesome. Loved them both for different reasons. I think you'll have a magical adventure wherever you choose! :)

Laurie,


Thank You for your comments,,, Seychelles sounds wonderful, We did talk about Montenegro to, but we have to remember this is Hubby's trip & he has a different guide line than I do when it comes to planning "Fun"!,, Ha Ha Ha

September is the next "Cruise" We are looking at a River Cruise, I can't wait!
