    August cant come soon enough... 6 days & 5 nights

    A co-worker of mine went there last summer, and I was absolutely blown away at the pics he brought back... I never knew a place like this was accessible to the regular Joe Schmo public.... It's gonna set me back a fair amount (about $1600 a night, plus accoutrements, etc), but this is one of those once in a lifetime experiences... its been about 8 years since I've been on a real take time off of work, get on a place, and go somewhere nice kind of vacation.... This'll be my first sober vacation since I was about 15, so it's gonna be a different experience, for sure...

    Bora Bora, Four Seasons... Shit'll take your breathe way with its beauty ...

    I stayed at the Ritz Carlton in Cancun. It probably wasn't as opulent as the 4 seasons but it was too much for me. Too many stiffs. I kind of need to stay at more humble places.

    Good choice. I always book Four Seasons in Maui. Also in Scottsdale. Can't go wrong there.

    Yes ... Most of the vacations I've taken in the the last 15-20 years have either been planned by the Chick I happened to be with at the time (All I had to do was hand over my credit card to pay for it) ..OR, I planned it on my own on a complete whim (usually just over a weekend)... I've never really taken the time to look around at whats out there & then plan out all the details well in advance ...

    1600$ a night but can't afford 5$ here?

    You are probably going camping at your local municipal campground.

    It isn't. That's why I was very uncomfortable at the place I stayed. We used Hotel points. I would never spend that much. Lots of rich people acting rich making me uncomfortable.

    It's not

    I'd probably need to save for 10-15 years to make the trip happen. :facepalm:
