Probably Switzerland. Lucerne, Mt Pilatus, Lauterbrunnen - all incredibly beautiful.

Slovenia by a mile

I've seen you mention this a few times and so happy to see. Can't wait to visit in the spring. Probably the furthest out that we've ever booked a vacation.

re: What was the best out of the country vacation that you enoyed
OMG. You will.

A few selected trip pictures

PS: I started corresponding with this guy on TripAdvisor that had a daughter that did city tours in Ljubljana. Great people and having somebody that was a local showing us around really made a difference. If you're interested in something like that we can connect. I loved Ljubljana as well but honestly the best parts of the country are outside of the capitol.

Agreed. There's no need to clutter up a thread with dozens of pictures and walls of text copied/pasted from a thread from earlier this year when he could just post a link.

I loved Costa Rica as well. If you like outdoors, hiking, etc. and don't want to be in a place that's cold, Costa Rica is a great fit. There is so much ecotourism there and you can see all types of animals, birds, vegetation, etc. The people were fabulous as well. We found them educated and felt very safe there. It's basically Central America's Switzerland with no army. One of my favorite vacations. We ended it with a bit of beach time. I really felt like it was a place I could live.

I loved seeing the pictures and think that place looks amazing! Pictures help tell the story. In the past, if I had more than one, found it best to set up an album to share like through Google Photos. Then it's just a link and people can chose to look at them or not.

This is probably number 2 for me. It helps that I love fishing and it's a great place for it. Besides that, there's just so much outdoor stuff to experience.

I, for one, enjoy it every freaking time.


And I also agree with the sentiment, with 4 kids and 2 businesses to run, when we go on vacation, we unplug from everything. We go to remote, hard to reach places. We try our best to find and enjoy the world in its most natural and undisturbed beauty as we can find.

re: What was the best out of the country vacation that you enoyed
I don't know about "best", there are aspects of many different trips that I've really enjoyed.

Examples:
Berlin, Prague, Vienna & rural Austria

England- Somerset, Bath, Wells, the Cotswolds, Oxford, Stratford, Leicester, Cheshire, Liverpool

Ireland-Take two weeks in a rent a car and drive the perimeter

Costa Rica-Rent a 4 wheel drive and drive during Dry Season in Guanacaste & Puntarenas Provinces

Germany-A wonderful country to tour about.

re: What was the best out of the country vacation that you enoyed
Spent 2 weeks in India. First week was for a wedding in Anand (about 1.5-2 hours outside Ahmedebad) and the second week doing the Golden Triangle of New Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur. The week long wedding ceremony was a blast and got a decent look of what it's like everyday in India. Food was incredible, so many tours of palaces/temples/forts that left you in awe of the detail they were built with so long ago, and just a totally different world there. The culture shock never really subsided the entire time there and that's what I liked most about it.

What were your thoughts on Belgrade? You said you were there for only a short time but was it clean/safe/sketchy, etc? I know there's some great stuff there, a lot of history and sights, but Serbia carries some connotations. My basic research turned up that it's surprisingly safe but I don't know anyone who has personally been.

re: What was the best out of the country vacation that you enoyed
I found Belgrade and the parts of Serbia I did get to visit very fascinating.

I'm generally the kind of person that's very fascinated with Eastern Europe particularly in recalling the war. Serbia is not without its challenges. They are still not an EU country and employment is very difficult. You see many Serbians moving out of the country to other parts like Germany to get work.

I enjoyed Belgrade. The Fortress and the Cathedral are the main tourist sites, but I found their war museum one of the most comprehensive I've ever seen.

The people are very friendly surprisingly to Americans given what happened during the war.

I still stay in touch with some people through Facebook that I met in Serbia. It's a hoot to see them post in Cyrillic because you can't understand a thing they say but most of them speak perfect English. I posted some pictures of us drinking rakia and they got a hoot out of it. It's their version of moonshine and you can see them beam when you start talking about their homemade brew!

I don't think that many Americans visit Serbia frankly. The restaurant and bar scene at night was pretty active. I found it to be very safe overall, just like all Eastern European countries. You may have petty crime but violent crime is rare. Not going to lie it's a poor country and parts of it do look sketchy to Americans but generally always felt very safe. I would love to go back and explore other parts of the country. You'd go there for the people, the food, the rakia! The recency feeling of a country that our country helped bomb into capitulation less than 20 years ago. The "cultural immersion" in a struggling yet hopeful nation free of political corruption.

As a side note, we went the month after this: LINK. We were actually worried about getting caught up in this and being American. Nope. Not at all.

My wife frankly has had enough of Eastern Europe! Just not "developed enough". I disagree, but have lost that one so far! So our next trip is to Germany.

Thanks We'd be sticking strictly to Belgrade and only for a couple days before heading to Croatia.

Italy and Australia.

Italy for the great food and the way the historic and modern weave so well together there.

Australia for the people, beaches and outdoorsy stuff to do everywhere.
