Back from holidays: What was your best moment?

We were in Australia for a few weeks. What a beautiful country and all those relaxed and funny people.

When we landed the WHOLE plane was into this and sang it out LOUD. It was my most funniest moment and contributed so much to those wow moments when on vacation.

I guess it's some sort of an unofficial national anthem in Oz.

Re: Back from holidays: What was your best moment?

My best moment was on our motorcylce trip. We were in Sweden and needed to catch a ferry later that day to get to Germany. En route, we had a bit of time and saw a sign for a national park. We took the turn and it led to a beautiful sandy beach on the baltic sea. The weather was perfect for a swim so we had a spontaneous dippy.

I think it is one of my favourite moments because we didn't plan for it, it just happened.

Re: Back from holidays: What was your best moment?

I just came back from a circumnavigational trip around the British Isles on the QM2.
The best moment was when we stopped in Liverpool!! We sailed in to crowds waving and spent a wonderful day there.
When we left there were thousands waving, fireworks and then we had a 2 hr concert from the Bootleg Beatles singing all the fab 4 hits. Everyone was dancing, smiling and having a great time!!

I must confess that my imagine of Liverpool was not what I expected - it really is a great place and I managed to visit 2 wonderful museums that were world class - and the locals were wonderful.

Cruising up the west coast of Barbados on a catamaran, slurping double rum punches and tucking into fried chicken and flying fish with macaroni pie and rice and peas. Followed up with a quick dip in the Caribbean .
The rest of the evening was somewhat of a blur.

Re: Back from holidays: What was your best moment?

ah ... brings back fond memories of a recent trip back to the US. I attended a four day music festival - camping in south west Virginia for four days with great friends, amazing weather, awesome music, and LOTS of sorely missed American microbrews... nirvana

Oh that's really amazing. Reminds me of the film Open Water though
