:sigh:


I have never been there, but upon retirement the first major trip we want to take is a cruise up the fjorids of Finland then off to the west coast of Russia, from there we will wing it on a song and a prayer.

If I won the Lotto Amsterdam would be the first place I went. I would also be sure to return to be a judge during Cannabis Cup...

I am not your rolling wheels, I am the highway
I am not your carpet ride I am the sky
I am not your blowing wind, I am the lightning
I am not your autumn moon, I am the night

Those kinds of vacations would be stressful to me, to go somewhere else to have a busy schedule and do all kinds of shït. Not to mention the cost of it. gaah.gif When we went to Amsterdam we had planned to go a bunch of museums and shït, but when we saw the queues we decided 'Meh' and got stoned and nekid instead. Way more relaxing and best thing you can do that anywhere. beercheer.gif

You may want to plan something else too as Finland doesn't have any fjords and Russia's west coast you'll sail in a few hours. chuckle.gif

You are right, I meant Norway. You see I'm not ready to be serious about "REAL" vacations yet.

The ganja went very well with Rembrandt van Rijn and Frans Hals.
Only planned those two things; smoke like a free, solid human man
and see the old masters' paintings:)

Not even the babbling, milling hordes of Russki and Japanese fellow
Rijksmuseum visitors could disturb the absolutely fantastic atmosphere
in Rembrandt's works. I was completely lost to the world there, for
quite a while.

Besides, the whole inner city is a 17th C museum.
Never walked in a more beautiful city.

Dude, the positive energy it releases, being among happy people who
don't need to bloody pretend.

I've seen enough museums as it is. You can spend hours in those establishments and seriously? I have better things to do in Amsterdam. coffeetime.gif

US I think that means you're way too young to retire. chuckle.gif

Don't get me started on what age people should retire. We should all retire young so we still can enjoy life. 13.gif

Rumor has it, according to our forefathers a place that required more than 2 hours of hard labor per day wasn't worth inhabiting. It's senseless to work your ass off so you can buy time saving appliances and go elsewhere to relax. blink.gif

There certainly is alot wrong with people working one's ass off for simple survival, but as for travelling to other places, I guess we have a case of the wonder/wunderlust.

Yeah that's all good. You meet new people and realize we're all the same. cheers.gif

It's just a hassle to me to have to travel half across the globe to realize that. I'd love to travel to a bunch of places, but only to find a place I'd want to settle at.

Finding a place for us to settle down is part of it as well, but that will be in British Columbia at retirement. My nephew and I are conversing on the area and I am re-searching right now for a place to settle down there. He's very instrumental in letting me know of ski resorts that are closing down and the real estate prices plummeting to affordable levels for prime properties. This may turn out very well indeed. Just because I can't retire now doesn't mean I can't put a downpayment on a property we both want for the future.

We want to see some of the countries across the ocean because we are curious and the history and art are so rich. We are not interested in visiting the mid- and far-eastern countries and I'm sure there's no need to explain why.

I'm not too sure all people around the world being the same; some cultures and belief systems are so inhumane towards women and children; moreso than here I think.

US the bubble is popping in BC, another couple years should see it reasonable again. We bought this place in 2005 and it's 'value' has more than doubled from what we paid. Insane. What sort of climate are you looking for? Close to city? Farmland? Maybe I can suggest a few areas to look at.

Turkey is on my list of places to go, the history is incredible. And Holland lots of family there. beercheer.gif

One place I'd love to visit again is Hungary. Budapest is a wonderful city and their National museum takes hours to walk through. Wonderful and friendly people and the food is fantastic. yay.gif

And in Southern Hungary you have a lot of architectural influences from the Ottoman empire so that was quite the trip for me. Ok, so it was part of a student exchange program and we had to work at a bubbly wine factory for it. scream.gif

Oh the horrors of those old women in aprons insisting on you being drunk all the time. sad2.gif
