Heading out to Cali for my first time this summer. Just want to kick back and chill on the beach and try surfing. Maybe do a little longboarding while I'm there too and see some of the sites.

New York. I love being in New York. It's been a few years, though.

I'm going to HK and Japan in October this year for 2 weeks to attend a wedding and for fun.  Japan is always my top pick place to go for vacation because there's so many things to see and do.  I'll probably go to a tropical island next year for vacation maybe somewhere in the Bahamas.

I've never got the chance to go to one of those US Virgin islands. Would love to go to the Caymans within a couple of years. Riding around town in the scooter exploring scenic places, going to beaches and eating food. I live in the middle of the US so the closes beach is 16 hours away and it's a horrible beach to begin with. At the very least Hawaii and it's smaller islands would be very nice vacation. In the mean time it's all about setting money to the side for this big vacation.

Von44...if you're going to Europe look at Eastern Europe. Great food, great booze, great beaches and smoking hot chicks. Prices are good too. I recommend the beaches in Croatia, Montenegro and Greece.. Belgrade is awesome for partying and hot chicks.

Also people are a lot nicer than in Western Europe. Spaniards are the worst.. The Spanish make the French look like mr. Rogers.

probably will be doing a camping trip back to six rivers national forest in Norcal and do a little exploring on Reno/Ca boarders,then backpacking at Half dome for the month of June. If we can gather enough people to go maybe a last minute trip to Vancouver,Ca as well.

I agree with 2zz! tahoe in the winter and summer! But outside of Cali, I like to go to Hawaii at least twice a year or whenever I'm tired of the cold. But as Intl travel I prefer Asia to Europe lol, much cheaper.

Haha thanks milutinho, I'll keep that in mind. I'm guessing you had some bad experiences with the locals over in Spain? Always thought nobody could be worst than the french. Now I gotta see this.

Nice, Japan is also one of the places I'd like to visit someday but it's so damn pricey. Not to mention North Korea threatening other countries with their nukes kinda bumps it down the list. But if it's still there after this whole fiasco is over, then I'll hop on a plane to check it out. Maybe even get some boarding in.

I thought Cuba was hard to get into?  Shocked  Cabo San Lucas has nice beaches, crystal clear water.

Canadians get to go to Cuba.  It sounds so strange to hear someone considering an all-inclusive in Cuba.  I would have thought that they weren't to welcoming of tourism, but that is probably because I know nothing of cuba.  I hear Belize is nice if you are looking for clear water and beaches.

Whoa! What part of Spain was that? I was all over Spain and never once I felt unwelcomed and I'm Asian. I did however encounter a rude obnoxious guard at one of the palaces but that's it.

You're doing it wrong, this is suppose to be non snowboard related.  LOL  But yeah, that is fairly reasonable.
