    My partner & I just returned from a brief Caribbean cruise yesterday, still posting pics of it in this thread:

    http://www.realjock.com/gayforums/3011833/

    We'll be going down to Key West sometime in the next 3 months, but we do that regularly, just a 200-mile drive for us from Fort Lauderdale/Wilton Manors. And in July we'll drive up to Orlando, also 200 miles, for business & pleasure. In September we're talking about Boston and Cape Cod, and staying part of the time at Provincetown. We recently got an invite to stay at someone's home in P-town.

    Then we're looking at flying to Europe for a Mediterranean cruise in October, with a transatlantic return on the same ship when it repositions here in Fort Lauderdale for the Caribbean cruise season. In November it's back to Key West, only this time I'll be pedaling a bike down the whole way. Not sure yet if we'll do Christmas & New Years in New Hampshire again this year, depends on our friends, but that's getting outside the seasonal range you specified.

    @Art_Deco Wow!, that's a lot of activities....I definitely wouldn't mind traveling across the pond 1 day myself....but I haven't even been 2 NY or CA yet (not too traveled in my 26yrs but plan 2 make up for that), ...and I admire how you and your partner have fun travels 2gether, I'm sure that keeps tha spice and prevents stagnation you all's relationship icon_smile.gif

    Even more amazing given Mr. Deco's failing health, his responsibilities as head of the Condo Hurricane Committee and his partner's very important position on the Condo Board of Directors.


    Bitter bitter old freak.

    Leave for Vegas tomorrow for the Pink concert on Friday and a Cirque show on Sunday.

    March - Caribbean vacation - St. John

    March/April - Ski weekend

    April - Puerto Rico - business/pleasure, company is opening an office there, so checking out San Juan. Might split my time there the next couple years.

    June - Alaska for a wedding.

    July - Idaho for a wedding.

    We go to Eagle River Wisconsin every year! Phelps Wi actually which is at the border of Upper Pen Mi. We stay in a "time share" like resort with the same people every year, so we've all know each other for as long as we've been going (my family has gone for 38 years, 6 years longer than I've been alive) And it's a great place to relax and enjoy anything from canoeing and sailing to volleyball and a campfire.

    Was hoping to get back to the Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque in October, but our best friends scheduled their wedding that weekend! =(

    WOW! Thanks, I don't see his posts unless someone quotes them. He's off the deep end again, I see.

    For the record, my health is indeed a bit precarious. That's why I don't waste time pampering myself, considering it's a race against the clock. Better to get as much as I can under my belt while I'm still able, with as many vacations as I can.

    And I like the challenge, not to mention the vanity of doing things I'm not supposed to be able to do. The fact that southbeach mocks my disabilities caused by honorable military service to the US discredits him more than it does me.

    But southbeach couldn't resist dragging my partner into this, who has nothing to do with this site. But as you say, those remarks really are the sign of a very bitter old... well, something. I'm glad few guys here take him seriously. icon_biggrin.gif

    I just came back from an 7 days - RCL Cruise in the Caribbean early January., I went with a friend and we visited -

    San Juan, Puerto Rico
    St. Croix
    Barbados
    St Lucia
    Antigua
    St.Marteen

    We are planning a couple of trips in California either: Napa, Big Sur, Monterey, as well as going down to Mexico (Acapulco, Xihuatenejo, and maybe Puerto Vallarta).

    Then later in the year doing a 12 day Mediterranean cruise out of Barcelona..spending a couple of days in Barcelona prior to doing the Mediterranean Cruise..we still have not decided if we will do RCL or another cruise line..it depends on the cost and our work schedules.

    For my 50th b'day I'm doing Miami Beach(10/13- 10/19) then down to Key West(10/19- 10/25 or 26). I've never been to either place and have always wanted to go to both.

    I'll probably hit Vegas Thanksgiving week again, possibly 4th of July as well.

    2013 looks rather dull compared to 2012. Last year we had the Olympic and Paralympic games, The Queen's diamond jubilee, my 30th birthday, (which didn't get quite as much tv coverage as the other two).

    So for 2013 I have applied for Wimbledon tickets, not that I really like tennis, but it's something to do, and have booked a holiday to Italy in July, purely on a whim, turned to a random page in a guidebook, it spoke of a town with baroque architecture and a vibrant cafe culture and decided that was the place to go.

    I'm heading to Fort Lauderdale & Key West end of March (5 nights each) staying at one of those clothing-optional, all-male resorts in both places... should be some frisky times ahead! icon_wink.gif I'll probably hit up the nude beach in Haulover while in Miami/FTL too. icon_lol.gif

    In May I might be going to San Francisco, not sure yet.

    In September, I *might* be going to Vienna, Austria, with some friends. That trip would truly rock if I can make it!

    I'm totally jealous of str8hardbody9's trip to Croatia/Prague... that'd be amazing. Have fun dude!

    I'm off to Vegas every few weeks to visit with the bf.
    Other than that, there's Palm Springs in April for Coachella.
    San Francisco, probably in August for Outside Lands.
    Possibly a drive up the coast to Big Sur.
    Maybe a weekend in Napa.

    For a vacation-vacation, I'm looking at Costa Rica, Cuba, or possibly Thailand in October.

    I go to Panama a few times lately for research and will be returning there over the summer. It's a pretty great place.

    I'd really like to get to Buenos Aires sometime soon, but that depends on having the cash and free time.
