Where are you going on holiday this year?

Are you? And if so, what’s this years destination? 
 

My wife and I have made fantastic and adventurous trips to Nepal, Tibet, Morocco, China etc. but since we have two little boys we have a different kind of holidays…

This year it’s the Portuguese island of Madeira and I have to say: it’s incredibly beautiful. Such beautiful nature and forests and a very attractive climate. We don’t do much more than take a small hike, visit a village and jump in the pool. I guess that’s life with little kids but hey:  It’s great and I am so much enjoying see my little boys having so much fun and looking around amazed by this completely different world.

We don't do vacations ... having horses and now a dog and a cat mean that someone has to be here if the other has to go somewhere. The closest I get is taking a Friday off for a monthly drive to Naples (FL) to visit my mother in her assisted-living facility, but usually that ends up being a half-day on Friday.  

The closest she gets is the less regular trip to south Florida to visit her family - maybe twice a year.

My wife and I spent several weeks earlier this summer in Toronto.  It was fantastic.  Love the place.  Great food.  Friendly people.

We rented a little studio apartment on the 32rd floor of a high-rise downtown -- right in the thick of things, just two blocks from the lake.

I enjoyed raising my children, but being "empty nesters" definitely has its advantages.  ;)

Our oldest cat has terminal cancer and I don't want to board him just to take an overdue vacation. My wife and I are taking separate trips so one of us will be home. I'm not much for long bus tours, I like getting to where I'm going and spending more time doing fun stuff.

In the basque region right now (where paternal side is from). Cooking, swimming, occasional hikes, tapas, etc. The local Ravel festival this year celebrates Xenakis' 100th, so will be seeing a concert.
