Hello Grasshopper.

I'd have to say the Lake District in England, but I'm biased as I live there! It's wonderful though; mountains, lakes, quaint villages, stone walls, mint cake, cafes, great people etc. I do wonder why visitors only make it to London and the south.

What about the US then?

It depends on what I'm in the mood for.

Beach? Cape San Blas, FL...extremely rural and quiet, small towns nearby with great restaurants, right next to a state park with great hiking and views of the water. Favorite beach I've ever been to.

Mini road trip? Athens, GA...just down the road from me. Great small town, best local music scene ever, my fav vegetarian restaurant The Grit, loads of coffee shops, and the cutest wannabe musician guys...hah.

City? Portland, OR...gorgeous, vibrant city. Love the laidback NW attitude and the people...well, I love everything about it, even the weather (yes, I am weird). I want to move there one day.

Travel can be near or far.

The beach, no doubt. Dutch coastline is spectacular.

I love Quebec City. I never tire of it. I'm actually trying to book a place there for next weekend, and the cheapest I can find is $95 a night for two. But... oh, it's just two nights...

My favorite vacation spot in the US is Ouray, Colorado. A tiny ex-mining town up in the mountains with lovely hot springs. It's a short drive to Yankee Boy Basin which has some of the most beautiful wildflowers and waterfalls I've ever seen. In the winter there is the only man-made ice climbing park (which I've never been to personally, but it's supposed to be amazing). Beautiful unspoiled (until now, since I just told all of you), and relatively inexpensive.

id have to say the Gold Coast for Aus because i am a very keen surfer and there are some great breaks there (kirra, burleigh heads, snapper rocks).

Tropical north QLD never fails to amaze either when it comes to amazing beaches.

Sennan in Cornwall. Its about 30 mins cliff walk down to beach. Unspoilet sand dunes, milky coloured water and excellent camp site :)
