Dream holiday

Post by Tally »

(vacation for our American friends) :)
Cost and time is not a factor.

I'd love to do a tour of the Mediterranean Islands, Formentera, Mallorca, Sardinia etc.

I'd like to ride a Harley across the US and take in the sights. The Grand Canyon, Carlsbad Caverns and caverns all over the US, and I'd like to go ziplining, whitewater rafting, horseback riding, maybe work on a cattle drive, go on a helicopter hog hunt, camp on the beach on North Padre Island again, go deep sea fishing in the Gulf of Mexico, and stay on a boat in Lake Texoma for a couple of weeks to fish and swim.

I'm sure there are lots of great places to visit all over the world, but there is too much to do here that I haven't done.

I’d like to drive across the Nallabor, take in Kalgoorlie, Perth, Margaret River, Pilbara, Kimberleys, Darwin, Gulf country, Atherton Tablelands and back down the east coast, Hunter Valley, Sydney, Rutherglen and home. Spend time discovering Tasmania but that will happen anyway.

I do encourage, strongly, that people travel outside their country. Great for giving perspective!

On the bucket list, Ulluru, (Ayers Rock), and Tasmania, also, going back to Italy to associate with the rellies since I only went there once in 2001 to discover where my parents originated from.
I also want to go back to California to associate with the other rellies. And to have more time to discover Disneyland. Also, want to do a road trip around parts of Australia.

I have been to Fiji, Noumea/New Caledonia, New Zealand, Italy, Canada, Alaska, California, China, Bali, and within Australia, Queensland, Perth, Adelaide, Sydney (and of course my birth town of Melbourne!)
Also, have been on 6 cruises, and totally love it!

Still room for more adventures and different far away places to appreciate, with different cultures, foods, and way of living.
Funny thing is, I always like coming back home....for some reason, I don't like being away too long.

Some amazing dear holidays there. I also have a thing for Zanzibar. It looks so exotic, and I'd love to visit Freddie's house.

Not a dream holiday, but I just booked myself a week in Noosa Heads. I haven't been there since I was a teenager.

That looks a lot like West Texas or portions of New Mexico.

Yes, I commented on that somewhere or other.

We stayed at her house the week or so before we boarded the ship for Australia. Talk about emotional!

It certainly looks like it's catering to the high end these days. I have apartment style room so I can sort out most of my meals and avoid the rip-offs.

I prefer to saty at Noosaville. Noosa heads does nothing for me. Half a day to stroll through the shops and I'm over it.

Noosaville however I can spend days there (it's also where I proposed to my wife). Plenty to do on the river like fishing, boating, jetski's etc, good restaurants (Maisie's Seafood & Steakhouse along the river is the absolute BEST. If I could convince the wife I'd drive up just for dinner then drive back to the goldie) and cafes, nowhere near the crowds of noosa heads. It's just more relaxed and laid back.

worth every penny ....... I'm talking about their steaks.

Their seafood was good, but not worth driving 2.5hrs for. :roll

That's about typical for Sydney and Melbourne prices which is why I almost never eat out. :bgrin

The weather is fine with pretty clear skies...but windy. Surf is dangerous and many beaches are closed. Not sure if Noosa Beach is closed as it does have protection against stuff from the south. That beach faces north.

It's actually quite nice, if a little windy. After the hot weather we've been having the cool breeze is very refreshing. I'm sitting here in just shorts, no top, enjoying the breeze.

Yesterday we spent the day at Burleigh Heads watching a couple of surfers enjoying the big waves. Those guys are nuts, but it was a good spectacle nevertheless. There were only two guys game enough at Burleigh. The surf was coming all the way up the beach onto the dunes. Walking along the beach we had to keep an eye on the waves and run to the higher dunes whenever a bigger set of waves rolled in.
