Best vacations?

I'm sure we've discussed this before, but ... What has your favorite international trip been? I can't seem to decide where to go this year. Thailand and Laos are high on the list, but Italy isn't far behind.

Take a Rhine River cruise and look at the endless supply of castles.



Pick up some ice wine for me in Sankt Goar, thanks.




Most interesting museum ever, the museum of torture instruments in Rothenberg ob der Tauber.

Italy is fun, beautiful, has some pretty quality food just about everywhere. We saw Rome, Venice, etc in a south to north trip. It was by far the most enjoyable international tour-like trip.

A friend loves the greek islands though we've never been there.

Similarly, mediterranean Spain is said to be beautiful and fun with fantastic food.

Bali is beautiful and enjoyable - food was great, scenery ridiculous, knick-knacks outrageously inexpensive (we borught back, like, a dozen wood carvings and handed them out to various work collegues) - strangely, I have no idea how much our hotel was but I'd bet it was way expensive (we were part of a semi-informal tour group, might have toured Japan on same trip - don't remember!). One possible (significant maybe) negative these days is Bali is part of Indonesia, Indonesia is largely Muslim (albeit NOT Bali...yet), and the standard group of do-it-my-way-or-else terrorists have hit tourists there - we didn't have any problems but our trip was well before it became standard to attack anything that is nonIslamic. But it was fun!

Japan was fun but way expensive - the hot springs were a trip...the ice sculptures up north (Hokkaido?) were still around when we toured.

We've gone to Taiwan multiple times and been north, middle, and south but, other than the street food (which I love), we didn't really see anything interesting after the first half dozen temples.

On the other hand, I thoroughly did NOT enjoy France/Paris - it was a drag. Switzerland had amazing scenery (summer tour, not winter, so very little snow - but the mountains and valleys were still there and VERY green!) however there wasn't much to do there other than tour the Rolex factory...Belgium was sorta like a mix of the netherlands and France - really nice people unlike France and good chocolate, but not a whole lot of things to see other than some older architecture.

There are no "beaners" there, idiot. Spanish people from Spain are white.
