Newlywed Colemans in Santorini

 

Love is in the air with Valentine’s Day coming up this weekend, so I thought it would be fun to get a thread going on the things we really LOVE about travel.

 

For me, it’s meeting new people, seeing new places and experiencing local culture, whether that means something sophisticated or down to earth. I LOVE learning about how people live around the world. I also LOVE a break from my normal life, responsibilities and food. Oh yes, the food! I LOVE trying new foods on my travels, and so many of the best memories I have from my travels are about food. This incredible octopus in ouzo sauce we had on our honeymoon in Santorini comes to mind. I’ll never forget it! There are many, many others.

 

So, how about you Insiders? What do you LOVE most about travel?  And, here’s a romantic shot of me and the hubs just to get you in the spirit, but this doesn’t have to be about romance travel.

 

Share your travel LOVES here, and pics are always welcome!

    I LOVE to travel when it is for leisure/pleasure with my much better half....

    I LIKE to travel when it is for business and I can rack-up some Marriott points to save for when I retire so that my much better half and I can travel more and see different parts of the US and beyond..... Working long days while traveling on business is not fun, but I look on the bright side of what the Marriott and Frequent Airline miles can do to supplement or pay for our vacation....

    Great Photo!!  I wish you both many many great years together!!!

    What's not to love about travel? It's been a part of my life since before I even have memories of traveling (my family moved to Austraila from California before my 2nd birthday). Crossed the equator and the international date line a dozen times before turning 10.

     

    Now I'm working on getting to every county in the US. More than halfway done (blue being the ones that are complete).

    counties 2016.png

    Half a million MR points and climbing. I plan to burn some in Hawaii (Feb/Mar 2017?). This time of year I especially love going someplace warm. Can't wait to hit Aruba in a few weeks.

     

    What else? Food, local craft beer, meeting Insiders (Houston, here I come).

     

    Travel has always been a part of my life. Even when I couldn't afford to go to faraway places, I still tried to travel. I didn't do it as much and had to find a way to fit it into my budget. For me, life without travel wouldn't be normal.

    I love to travel, be it to visit family and friends, explore new destinations and cultures, or just a short weekend away in a nearby destination.  The minute I lock the front door and am on my way, my mood is better.  I've done 5 cross country road trips and each time there is something new to see, to experience.  It's also great education for my 11 year old son.  He can learn more on one trip than he could in a classroom.

    When my kids were grown and off my budget, and I finally had enough vacation to be able to travel, my life changed dramatically.

     

    We love seeing new places and returning to places that we love.  We get to attend family functions that were just not doable when we were less able to travel.   In the past 25 years we have been to eight countries in Europe, Israel and Canada (from Vancouver to the Gaspe).  We've been to quite a few new (and old) destinations in the USA including New Orleans, NYC, Charleston, Savannah, Alaska, Nashville, Memphis, California, New England, and more.  We've eaten local foods, enjoyed talking to local people, and seeing the sights, both nature made and man made.

     

    We enjoy the mountains, beaches, and most of all, exploring, on foot, new cities.  We often walk 5 miles, or more, in a day.

     

    Our next planned trip is to San Francisco, Half Moon Bay, and Monterey.  It will be to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary and (hopefully) my recovery from lymphoma.  We were last in that area in 1970.  We had a wonderful, but too short stay in Monterey and we had a poor time in San Francisco, where we were recovering from dysentery, which we had contracted from the water supply in Squaw Valley.  This should be better!

    Great topic KatieC and yes Santorini is a place we will be looking at for our next European journey whenever that is.

     

    What I love about traveling is:

     

    • Seeing the excitement on the face of my Wife when I say silly things like "honey we leave for the Oregon Coast in a week" or where ever we are headed
    • Visiting new places and finding our way around without any help to small local joints for drinks/dinner/views
    • Returning to our favorite go to spots and seeing old friends who work at the hotel or our special little spots we visit
    • Getting out amongst them regardless of where we are
    • Trying new and different foods recommended by the locals
    • Just making a "date night or weekend" across town
    • And love coming back home to our little casa in Texas

      We stayed in Santorini for our entire honeymoon. No island hopping. We had a quite a few regular spots and Lucky's was our late-night snack/beer spot. Highly recommend it if you go there. The owner, Lucky, is quite a character...and he makes his own raki. I hope to see him again one day!

    I love...LIVE...to travel.  I love waking up on a different soil, the sun shining in my face and warm breezes.  I love waking up to city life, buses hissing, people talking and balmy trade winds I love travel, it's ingrained in the fabric of my being!  Last year was a rough one...no trips.  NO TRIPS!  Daughters (x2)  weddings instead.

     

    I love to cruise but my all time favorite trip was our Hawaiian vacation the week of Valentine's Day three years ago.  We stayed at the Marriott Waikiki Resort and Spa.  Nice upgrade at check-in.  Our son was at the  YWAM (Youth with a Mission) base in Honolulu and spent almost 3 months in Nepal for his mission trip as part of YWAM.  We surprised him and flew in the day before he landed.  We took a taxi up to the base and met his trip leader who told him he had mail.  Mike and I were huddled behind some palms along with a few girls from the base.   He came around the corner and we jumped out...let me just say there were massive hugs and tears.  Mine, son's, hubbies and the girls around us!  After his debriefing the next day, he also stayed at our room and showed us his favorite places.  We took in a Luau (Paradise Cove) went to Disney Aulani for lunch, (loved the Ko Olina area) and my hubby and I took a dinner cruise on Valentine's Day.

     

    We rented a Mustang convertible and cruised around Oahu to the North Shore and all over.  It was an amazing vacation and while I'm traveled quite a bit, this was the best.hawaii.jpg

        He loved Nepal and the Nepalese people.  Of course it was a very affordable place to be and he thought that was amazing.  (He was 19 at the time)  He couldn't get over that a Chai tea was ten cents.  They stayed in peoples homes and he met some amazing people.

    I think I like novelty more than anything. I like to just see new places and things. When we take trips now we tend to keep on the move and only stay a few nights in any one place.

      misterchk, you and me both.  Nothing like a nice JW or upscale hotel room ALL TO MYSELF!  I travel a lot with Spouse and kids as well, or with Spouse, or with Kids, or with one or more of my siblings, etc.  But I truly love a nice hotel room all to myself when traveling solo as I typically am for work.  Essex House is my favorite solo trip work destination hotel.

    I also really enjoy trying new places to eat.  Nothing brings people together like a meal.

      KatieC is correct.  We are hoping to go in late spring.  The place sounds fantastic and it will be our 50th anniversary, along with a, hopeful, celebration of a recovery from cancer.

       

      What I know is that one friend loved it and I have read a great deal of travel material.  It reportedly is a very luxurious hotel, with fabulous food and service, in a very scenic location. 

       

      I shall report on the trip upon our return!

    I LOVE trying new foods the most! Even if I've gotten sick from some local foods, I'm still up for trying more dishes while I'm at that location just because you rarely get that authenticity anywhere else. I used to work at a restaurant where one of the chefs was from Costa Rica and he made a chicken and rice dish for everyone after our shift had ended and it tasted EXACTLY like many of the meals I had while in Costa Rica.  I thanked him so much because it honestly brought me back in time, and had been over 10 years since I'd had it, but my taste buds remembered those flavors right away, it was wild!

     

    I definitely LOVE all of the scenery as well, including the beautiful, unique, and historical landmarks. The Arch of Cabo San Lucas is one that sticks out in my mind most. It was so beautiful from the drive to the hotel and from the view in our room at the hotel, but the boat ride to the island where they're located was the best because I knew once we got there it was a sight to remember. There are many landmarks around the world where I have yet to visit, but that is something I look forward to when booking future vacations  caborocks.jpg

    Love reading all of the posts on this thread!   I caught the travel bug as a little girl, I always wanted to be exploring someplace new.  What I love most about travel is the experiences we take with us, the memories. Traveling always allows us to step outside of our day to day box, even if it is traveling for work.  There is always a new restaurant to try, a different hotel to stay in and a new face to meet.

    Personally, I love that travel offers me a chance at a brief getaway from the routine. Whether I'm visiting a brand new destination or my yearly summer vacation spot (see below), there's nothing more refreshing than shutting down the technology and taking in sights that deviate from the norm. And yes, I see the irony in that this picture was taken with my cell phone, but I can assure you all that it was on airplane mode.

    I love stepping out of my day to day and getting to know how locals live theirs. I love discovering local's favorite places to eat and hang out, their favorite music, movies, art, etc. I also love fashion and really like checking out local style. Shopping overseas is a ton of fun, and all the coolest clothes and jewelry in my closet are all items I picked up when traveling!

    traveling is fun, seeing and having a conversation with someone I would have never met otherwise is the most interesting part of travel. People watching and meditating on the diversity of our world, the beauty within each one that passes by. And getting home to love and family.

    Based on how much I've done in the past 6 or so years what I love most is the time at home between trips!

    TO TRAVEL IS TO LIVE.  New people, new customs, new adventures, new food. Especially the food.  When I was in Sydney I ate kangaroo, in New Orleans I ate alligator, in India I tried Wasabi water buffalo!   When I go to Cape Town I'll have zebra & wildebeest, and in Peru I plan on trying alpaca!

    Travels are awesome!  Just make sure that when you book a package that you actually get that package honored.  I had problems with the JW Marriott in Cancun.

    Recently I was on a travel weekly TA webinar and WON a cruise on a new and amazing cruise line - French America Line.  They are cruising down AMERICA's rivers.  Posh too.  Very excited.  On a down note- now hubby wants to cancel the cruise we had booked.

    I love seeing new places and meeting some of the locals.  I love seeing spectacular scenery as well as eating wonderful local food.  I also enjoy meeting other travelers from other parts of the world.
