What’s your favorite vacation spot? Or dream vacation?
Technically this wasn’t a “vacation”, but in college I met my wife, Kim studying abroad in Fremantle, Australia (a suburb town outside of Perth). It was an amazing 4+ month experience traveling around the southern hemisphere – including Singapore, Thailand, New Zealand, and many parts of Australia. During that time, we had a very memorable weekend in Rottnest Island, a small sleepy town about 10 miles off of the coast of Perth. There were no public automobiles allowed on the island and there were some very strange native creature (quokkas – they are a peculiar mix of a kangaroo and a squirrel!!).
Dream vacation would be to spend some time touring around Santiago, Chile and Mendoza, Argentina including a hike to Machu Picchu. We didn’t make that trip happen before kids came along!
