Show Us your Life - Favorite Vacation Spots

Today's Show us Your Life with Kelly's Korner is all about favorite vacation spots. Andrew and I have gone on many wonderful vacations, and to pick one would be very difficult. On the right hand side of my blog, you can see pictures from all the places we've been. I think my favorite place I went was Europe. This past March, I had the opportunity to visit my friend Jennifer in Hamburg, Germany. I was there for 9 days. And it was the most fun I've ever had on vacation. It wasn't one of the most "relaxing" vacations I ever had. We were go...go...go... the whole time. We also took a 3 day trip to London! We were able to hit all the major tourist spots, but would have loved to stay for much longer. You can read about my trip to Germany Here and London Here.
As far as my favorite relaxing vacation spot, that would be Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. Andrew and I celebrated 4 years of marriage in PV in May, 2008. The entire week was full of relaxation. What a great way to spend a vacation. Lots of time at the pool and on the beach. We also were able to go to a secluded island called Las Caletas, for "Rhythms of the Night." "An exhilarating spectacle, where stories of an ancient civilization are told through live music and modern dance as one of Mexico's most innovative contemporary dance troupes transport you on a magical and mystical journey through time" (Taken from the web-site) There is also a dinner buffet where you actually eat on the beach. It was a great experience.
Another excursion we were able to do while in Mexico was the Canopy Tour. What a great way to see the Sierra Madre Mountains. It was an exhilarating journey as we were able to explore high above the jungle floor via zip lines, suspended walkways and platforms, by scaling the Crazy Ladder and descending via rappels. The whole experience was so much fun!
We ended the week with a couples massage. What a way to end a perfect week!
Don't we look relaxed?
I am in the process of planning next years vacation. I wonder where we will go...Hopefully I will get a lot of ideas from others during the "Show us your Life - Favorite Vacation Spots." Thanks for looking, and come back again.

My aunt and uncle have a house on Edisto; my oldest and I stayed there for about a month when we were in transition from an overseas military move. Love CFA- used to go to church with the Cathy family. You'll have some fun seminar locations once you get a store!
