Why limit oneself to just one vacation after winning that much money? When I win any magnitude of jackpot, I would take a yearlong vacation in which I would step foot on every continent and rack up over a million frequent flyer miles. No sir, I will not spend a single night on a cruise ship...potential for too many bad things to go wrong, plus I hate cruising.  Why would anyone want to be packed like sardines with some who do not practice good personal hygiene? How else can hundreds come down ill with Norovirus and other food borne illnesses on those cruise ships? No thank you.

Old School- the topic says " first vacation". I could have said Europe, but l wanted to be more specific Sherlock.l have always wanted to visit the Island- who knows on the flight back to the States we could do a detour and head to New Zealand, Tahiti & who knows where. There is a method to my madness.

        You claim you're in his head,

        Please don't misrepresent what I really wrote. He's the one always writing about "getting in one's head", not me. Get with the program before you are also added to the list of idiots.

        A course in reading comprehension would serve you well.  I quoted your post so I could point to it and say I agree, but I was quite clearly addressing noise-gate, NOT you.

          What's that you say Maud?- coming unhinged?- right. Stick to embroidery, you don't know the history of this thread, and take your horse with you.Bye.

          Thank you for proving my point.  The men in the white coats will be there shortly.

                That used to be me.  I've learned you can't argue with most of 'em and all I'm doing is wasting my time and frustrating myself.  I can usually ignore them now, but once in a while I still get caught up in it.

                    I don't have a horse in this race, but he's right, noisy.  You claim you're in his head, but it's obvious he's in yours.  Frankly, you're coming unhinged.  Take a few steps back and breathe.

                    My appologies. I misread what you wrote. I'm the idiot because I was half in the bag when I read it. lol

                    I don't have a reading comprehension problem when I'm sober. lol

                      I get you, but there is a difference between "first vacation" and "first place you will go on vacation". Explanation: one could take a first vacation to Haiti and DR, but the first place you plan to go on vacation would be either Haiti or DR. Now for those who say who would want to go to Haiti on vacation...stay there with that thinking because all of Haiti is not a basket case.

                      Similarly, one could take a first vacation that encompasses several different countries like Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda and Rwanda to visit the various national parks and museums, but the first place you might go on such a vacation would be Kenya, for example.  Kapeesh?!!!

                      But to play along nicely, the first place I would go on vacation would be to Kenya...first class all the way on KLM.  In fact, KLM, Air France, Kenya Airways, Ethiopian Airlines, and South African Airlines would get lots of my premium business. TAP would only get my business when I visit Cape Verde.  My passport will get quite the workout!

                      Get MONEY!!! Winning a JACKPOT lottery is all the HOPE and CHANGE I desire!!!  NOW give me MONEY!US Flag

                      The guy who won the presidency in 2008 really won the lottery...he is now millions richer, travels in first class style, and even has a staff that would be the envy of the richest Powerball winner (she has a staff of 2). Every night he goes to sleep, he probably plays the close of Dave Chappelle's Show: I'm rich beyatch!

                              Many   Moons    Ago

                               

                              Went  up  to  the  second   level  ,  quite  a  view

                               

                              Was  gonna  go  on  all  the  way  up , but  there  was  a  line  to  get  on  the  elevator  to  go  the  rest  of  the way  to  the  top , and  I  was  young  and  impatient  back  then ,   so  came  on  down

                               

                              Enormous   Structure       I  remember  I  stood  under  one  leg  of  it  and  looked  up      Huge   !!!!!!

                               

                              Went  on  to  Luxembourg  and  Belgium  (  beautiful   flowers  and  gardens  and   water  and   bridges )

                              Thanks   for  the   picture   ,    brought  back  a  lot  of   memories

                              Astek, I am jealous!!! Never been there. I want to buy (if I win $100 million plus net) one of those apartments where the Eiffel tower is so close, it is almost in your living room! lol I love the flickering lights at night. When there was some scaffolding up recently for the Washington Monument, they had lighting on it like the Eiffel tower. Was sad to see it come down.
