    Because I'm not the kind to sit on a beach in Mexico I seldom take holidays.
    I generally like to wait around till something "interesting" comes to mind.
    So some of my favorite holidays were:
    1995-Formula 1 race in Montreal
    1998-CART race at Long Beach California.
    2002-Northern Italy tour including Ferrari and Lamborghini sites, etc..
    2005-Incredible SuperBike run through B.C. interior on towards Vancouver.

    Anyone else have some ideas for a good holiday that you've had? I kinda feel the racing is "been there, done that" for me. What have you guys found worth doing?

    Best!
    Wes

    A vacation is when you’re thrown out of your rental. I don’t know what the other thing is, never met or caught one.

    I thought Holidays were Easter, Christmas, etc. Vacations are where we take a break and visit different parts of the world. I'm not trying to be politically correct, I'm just really confused and want to post the correct answer.

    yeah no-one in Oz really says 'on vacation' unless they're talking about the Griswolds or the brain of the chick at reception

    UK Holiday = US Vacation.

    As "Holidays" go, UK is one of less than a handful of countries that don't celebrate a particular day as one of Independence.

    Holiday in the Sun is a great, great, great song by The Sex [size=+2]P[/size]isT[size=+2]O[/size]Ls.

    I spent a month in Hawaii in '83. I'd spent 3 years having no fun whatsoever prior to that, so it was pretty damn special... and so was she...

    I remember when I was 10. The price of a small slurpie went from $.10 to $.12. All of the kids in the neighborhood picketed the store!

    It's the side trips that make big trips special. That regimented stuff gets old fast.
