        I'm surprised that no one has mentioned Dubai, UAE. It's a beautiful country with one-of-a-kind hotels. Imagine going on a desert safari, indoor skiing, and shopping for beautiful jewelry at the gold souk. I'd also visit Jamaica...I've always wanted to go there. Who wouldn't enjoy ziplining through the lush forests, walking on white sandy beaches, snorekeling, endless tropical drinks, and a laid back lifestyle? Big Smile 

        Your right Ladybugg .  I hadn't mentioned Dubai either.  I only mentioned places i would like to go back to as a vacationer and  picked the ones I would like to vacation in . Of course the gold souk is nice but it is only a long street (at least when I was there ) of wall to wall gold shops where you can get 24 22 and 20 K gold fairly cheap compared to here in the US . Most folks have never seen real 22 K gold . You forgot to mention the Ice Hotel . The problem with Dubai is that they started a lot of construction and ran out of funds and backers. A lot of foreign laborers were sent back to their home countries and the construction just left unfinished . It is a nice place and I did like it there but it wasn't my favorites .

         

         Good Luck,

        Blackie.

          I'm the kinda guy that thinks about others before himself.

          That's why my first thought about a vacation is one for my mother in law.

          I'm gonna send her on a 25 Year Around The World Cruise with visits to every country on Earth.

          I just need to find a cruise line with a very large, very buoyant ship because she's kinda big. (Not that there's anything wrong with that!)

          She just needs special accomodations and care because she is a very large woman (she keeps her diaphragm in a pizza box).

          And the last time she laid on the beach, some Greenpeace members ran up and tried to push her back into the ocean.

          People can be so inconsiderate.

            Initially I'd just be in hiding for a while, either somewhere remote like a mountain or lake cabin or out in the open with the family at Disney.  Once everything was settled, I would be chartering a private yacht for a cruise either in the caribbean or mediterranean. Although the South Pacific would not be bad either. A 6 - 10 passenger yacht, full crew including a chef... 

            I don't see anything wrong with Vegas except as the initial trip. Vegas is a wonderful destination, the games are fun and the shows are fantastic. I plan on Vegas being in my multiple return vacations, but always with a budget.

             

            rdgrnr, how nice of you to send your MIL on an extended vacation. You must be her fave son-in-law.  Red Devil

                So is my furniture when she visits.

                She's a big woman, Blackie.

                Her last gentleman friend said when he got through having sweet relations with her he rolled over twice and found himself still on top of her!

                      I'm willing to send her on a 25 year cruise!

                      Where did you get the notion I didn't like her?

                      I even rave about her baking skills! She even bakes special things just for me, she loves me so much!

                      For instance, she goes through all the trouble of pressing her face down in the dough just to make gorilla cookies for me.

                      See, you got it all wrong, I think the world of her.
