Exploring the hidden gems of Croatia and Italy (on separate occasions) was great.

 

Best trip (not really a vacation) was each and every time we have been to Bosnia.  So much more than a vacation, though, as our main focus was trying to help folks out as best we could in as hands-on a manner as we could.

Happy Eid, bud.

 

Thanks, my friend.

 

Prayers yesterday morning were great.  5,000+ gathered on the field of a university football team on a nice early summer day in late June.  With the call to prayer and the prayers being amplified for all to hear that many local neighbours gathered to watch.  There is nothing quite like a person that is well versed in classical Arabic to do the call to prayer and when the Qur'an is recited by an Imam with the same language skills outlined above during the prayers ... it simply is magical.

 

The rest of the day was spent with my wife, as Eid day 1 is supposed to be for family, and was one of the best days of our lives.  Nothing real extraordinary, but spent a beautiful day at a park on the ocean.  We were basking in the warmth of Ramadan and the sun.

I am not catholic by any means, don't know much about it.... But I met 2 lovely gals In Killarney and they talked me into going to Mass at the enormous St Mary's cathedral, it so happened the Indianapolis student choir was there and some very special Irish clergy....I have to say, it was quite the spectacle (minus the chanting and kneeling etc... I was lost) but to be there where the bishop spoke both gaelic and English prayer was quite amazing.

I may have (probably have) told the story before, but years ago I traveled Europe with a band and choir, and we narrowly avoided being in the middle of the London Underground bombing. A couple days later we were in a stunning medieval church in Austria- a very small one, actually. Not a huge cathedral (though they are incredible) or anything, but a small, wooden, hand hewn chapel of sorts. Ancient wooden altar, beautiful artistry.

 

The choir sang a heart rending hymn and we had a moment of silence for those lost in the bombing. It was the loudest moment of silence in my life thus far. It was overwhelming and humbling. Everyone, locals and us foreigners, was silently crying and there was a feeling of unity that I'll never forget. I am not religious, but moments like those can really make me understand why so many love and take solace in it. 

 

Those are the experiences that make travel so important.

Anyone have any recommendations for Australia, I'm flying out in a couple hours and have a few days booked at each of the major cities for the next 2 weeks.... Kinda just made this one on the fly, so my itinerary is pretty free. Any suggestions, I'm all ears :)

Take a water ferry around Sydney, do take the tour of the Opera House, walk through Hyde Park in the early evening...not sure if they do it in September but at least in Dec/January hordes of massive bats come into the city to roost in the trees at the park. We were freaking out until observing the locals not reacting at all. 

 

In Melbourne do check out the WWI memorial...Anzac Day. 

 

Eat fish and chips...and shepherds pie.

We went on one cruise in the Med.  The ship was just not our cup of tea, so we made it all about the stops ... Dubrovnik (been many times), Venice, Rome, Athens and it started in Istanbul.  We spent about 10 days in Istanbul prior to the cruise and very nearly did not board the ship.

 

So, stick to the Med.

Kind of random, but I am looking into a trip to Nepal, and a trip to base camp of everest and possibly a hike to a lower peak.... The summit is probably something that I can't do (time, $$, out of shape) I'm looking at maybe October, has anyone had any experience or done a trek like this?

Sydney - take the ferry to Manly Beach, bus to Bondi or Balmoral in Mosman. Paddington in the evening for a few pints and a bite. The Rocks down around the Harbour Bridge. Have a beer at the Mercantile. Go out on the Harbour Bridge and take some pics. Darling Harbour. Royal Botanic Gardens. And if you have an extra day, do the Taronga Zoo.

Thanks, I ended up doing taronga, but in Sydney I went to Circular Quay and hung out downtown, did a bridge crawl and then went to the opera house for a comedy satire. I found the rest of Australia to be much more fun, I guess I just don't love big cities.... And driving in ridiculous traffic

Just got back from Spain a couple weeks ago. This was a game changer for me. I had never been to Europe so I was captivated by the history, the castles, the food, the Moorish architecture, the people, everything about that beautiful place. Stayed in Madrid for 5 nights then drove to the southern coast and stayed in Malaga for the rest of the trip and ventured out from there to places like Cordoba, Granada, Ronda, Cesares, Seville. Took a side trip into Gibralter which was cool. Rode the gondola to the top of the rock. Some highlights were touring Real Madrids Stadium, Touring The Alhambra of Granada, Touring the Mosque/Cathedral of Cordoba. Touring the Old towns of Cesares and Ronda. Seville was amazing. Put 3500 km on the rental. I'm going back. at some point I'll take another shot at Spain. Really beautiful.

Sorry my bad - should've looked at the post date. Yep, Sydney's traffic is tough, especially when you have to drive on the other side. In the 90s, my buddy and I drove the entire eastern side on the continent in about 2 months and camped. Once in a lifetime experience.

Ya know, I try and take one trip a month, whether it's local or global.... My job sucks and is stressful, it's long, hard hours. The perk for me is that financially I am in a good spot and my days are soooo long (usually 12+)hours that allows me to work a lot less (days) per month.

I'm 33, single, no kids that I'm aware of :) I'm cool with seeing/experiencing as much as I can, before the reality of aging hits me.

In two days Mrs. Neo and I will join four NeoEttes and their wives, girlfriends and children for six days and five nights in Asheville, North Carolina. I’ve rented a home in the mountains as a place to bring my wide spread family together for Christmas and New Years.

The eleven of us will be joined by a long time friend and his family of five. Our families have spent Christmas and Thanksgiving together for years. I am looking forward to mountain views, big time grilling and meals, raucous laughter, some bar and hot tub time, trips into town for history and shopping, and a day at The Biltmore.

Vacations at my age .... creating a destination for friends and family so dispersed.

Spain won my heart over the summer of 2015!  I just visited the parts that you mentioned this past summer (3 weeks:  end of July through mid August) and am already yearning to go back.  Malaga was such a beachy, fun town; I loved being there and being able to travel so many other fun cities while also taking the time to relax at Malagueta Beach or any other parts.  I recommend hitting up Barcelona on your next trip.  I spent 12 nights there in 2015 and still needed more time, so went back this summer and split my time between there and Malaga.  My goodness, do I LOVE that city!  And, while your're in BCN, make arrangement to spend at least one night in Montserrat.  Life changing, indeed!  Feel free to let me know if you need any suggestions; I travel on a small budget and I do it up WELL!

I have been fortunate to explore a LOT and have loved every second of it. Here is a snippet

 

*I have stayed in every state along the entire east coast from Maine to Key West and Michigan/Ohio

*Vegas

*Cali:  San Fran, Monterrey, San Jose, Pebble Beach, Highway 1

*Negril, Jamaica

*Nassau, Bahamas

*Cancun, Mexico

*All of the Florida Keys

*Panama City, FL

*Washington and Oregon

*Melbourne, Australia

*Spain, Italy, and France

 

Up next:  Big Island, Hawaii and Peru

 

But, I feel my best trip was six glorious weeks in Europe during June through August of 2015.

 

One of my closest friends was getting married in Italy that summer and my best friend and I were both invited.  I convinced her (my BFF) to travel with me for six weeks surrounding that wedding and, man, was THAT a summer I will never forget!  Spain:  Barcelona; France:  Aix en Provence, Nice, and the French Riveria; Monaco:  Monte Carlo; Italy:  Florence, Venice, Amalfi Coast, and Rome.  My BFF was with me the whole time.  10ish days surrounding the wedding brought our group of eight close friends to Florence to live it up and then all of us went to Venice together.  I was able to fulfill my Mom's lifelong dream of seeing the Vatican and Sistine Chapel and she came over for the last 9 days of my journey.  Simply AMAZING.  There is just something about watching your Mom look like a little kid on Christmas in the middle of Vatican City that can never be duplicated or removed from your heart/brain; it is the reverse of what parenting is all about and I still get weepy when I look at pictures of her two years later.

 

Travel, my friends!  It is good for the soul :)

Coming back stopped off at Yosemite... Skied Sundance in Utah, and Eldoro Co. Snow Tubed at Steamboat Springs and sat in a hot tub -5 degrees outside outdoor tub was 105 degrees in Sulpher Springs Co... had to dip head under to get rid of icicles in hair...


Have gone Dollywood, Louisville Slugger factory and City Museum in St Louis... Eaten fast food steak there too... Lincoln Nebraska has the greates kids zoo... love Charleston SC and Savanah GA as well as Little 5 Points in Atlanta. Rib House in Amarillo Tx. Need to do North West and AK an Hi still... but greatest trip was in my 20s 3 week bike trip in France quit for a week on the beaches in SW France... near Spanish border... Cap Ferret... Dune de Pila is amazing.

Anyone have recommendations for cruises? My lady has wanted to go on one forever and I'm sure my kid would like it. It will definitely be in the Caribbean. I just don't know which part and which boat.

 

Disney cruises are the way to go for the kids, I'm not sure how old your child is but they have Disney cruises for all ages, for boys there is a Star wars themed Disney cruise and you step into the cockpit of the millenium falcon, it was a blast. They have all sorts of themed cruises for the family and kids of all ages just check out their website.
