All my friends are married (female ones, and ones I would be comfortable enough to share a room with…) so who’s coming and where are we going?
Hey, if you can’t go may as well dream about it 🙂
My Choice: South Africa.March 31, 2011 8:14 pm at 8:14 pm #755495hanibParticipant

Africa sounds good. I always wanted to bag Kilimanjaro. Then, on the way back, I’ll swing by Libya to see how things are on the ground.
Venice? Forget what the tourist photos look like. I know someone who went for real. The canals are open sewage trenches (yuck)March 31, 2011 9:44 pm at 9:44 pm #755500
in that case bpt my second vote is for your houseMarch 31, 2011 10:32 pm at 10:32 pm #755501Derech HaMelechMember
If you do end up going to South Africa they have this meat called ‘biltong’. It’s raw, but cured. When you eat it it’s hard as a rock at first but then it gets kind of gummy. It’s so good. Can you pick me up a few lbs. and send it my way?
Just drop it out of the plane as you fly by. I’ll be waiting.April 1, 2011 12:07 am at 12:07 am #755502
cmon bpt ill make my bed and help in the kitchen whaddya say?April 1, 2011 12:21 am at 12:21 am #755503
Krugers State Park, cruise around the Cape, scuba/shark (how awesome?!) diving, Addo Elephant National Park where you get to ride elephants and thats for beginners 😉April 1, 2011 1:14 am at 1:14 am #755504s2021Member
Haha sac- maybe at the end there will even be a proposalApril 1, 2011 1:17 am at 1:17 am #755505pumperMember
maybe you have family members who can accompany you? Not as fun of friends, but still a vacation!
and btw, out of all places – SOUTH AFRICA?????
If beach towns aren’t for you, at least go for Switzerland or somethingApril 1, 2011 1:23 am at 1:23 am #755506cshapiroMember
my sister and i go on vacation together all the time…because all our friends are either married or too poor to afford a vacation or both!!!
we’ve gone to atlantic city, chicago, naples (fl), london, paris, zurich, geneva, israel and although it would be more fun to go with a friend…it is what it is right!??!
i would love love love to go to south africa!!! july after my auditing section of the cpa, ill be in dire need of a good vacation, st lucia sounds tempting too!!April 1, 2011 1:29 am at 1:29 am #755507deiyezoogerMember

Try Tripoli. There are great fares now.April 1, 2011 1:40 am at 1:40 am #755509LemonySnicketParticipant
Fiji! As the great Truman Burbank said about Fiji “you can’t get any further away before you start coming back” Ahhhh….April 1, 2011 1:49 am at 1:49 am #755510hanibParticipant
actually, i’ve heard of krugers state park, and that sounds cool – but besides seeing big houses (and each one with a swimming pool), i couldn’t think of much else and thought it might be somewhat dangerous – but, now that you’ve mentioned swimming with sharks, i can understand ;). (now, if you can find a way to go scuba diving with dolphins, count me in 😉April 1, 2011 1:55 am at 1:55 am #755511
You can swim with dolphins in Orlando.April 1, 2011 1:56 am at 1:56 am #755512dunnoMember
I’m in for anywhere. I need a vaca desperately!April 1, 2011 2:27 am at 2:27 am #755513yossi z.Member
Lemonysnicket: first off welcome to the cr, I don’t believe I have seen you around before. Second, yes!!! I take it you watched the truman show then? Good morning! and if I don’t see you, a good afternoon, good evening, and good night (something along those lines. I don’t remember exactly as I haven’t seen it in a while)
I am happy just going/being in israel. To me a vacation is a few days without work or any real responsibilities spent happily spending time with family whom I am very close with. Now ‘family time’ could be a cousin out in nevada just saying I am not against traveling around …
😀 Zuberman! 😀April 1, 2011 4:16 am at 4:16 am #755514LemonySnicketParticipant
Yossi – Shkoiach 🙂 I have been on here for a few months but rarely commented.
lol indeed I did get it from The Truman Show. That seret was epic! I always try to imagine what happened after he walked off the set. You know, entering the real world for the first time. Wish they’d come out with The Truman Show 2 or something…April 1, 2011 5:40 pm at 5:40 pm #755515
Any time, Goq.
But if you want to eat like you’re on vacation, be sure to bring your own food. All we have now is 8 varieties of breadcrumbs and 4 shapes of pasta, plus the candy from shlach monos that no one wants to eat.
Pesach is coming, so we gotta deplete the inventory. First come, first served!April 1, 2011 6:02 pm at 6:02 pm #755516
bpt no one depletes inventory like me! tyApril 1, 2011 6:04 pm at 6:04 pm #755517ChanieEParticipant
No need to go all the way to Africa for some meat … Rockland Kosher (Monsey, NY) sells biltong.April 1, 2011 6:11 pm at 6:11 pm #755518SJSinNYCMember
Sac, my cousin is getting married in South Africa in a few weeks and if I wouldn’t be 8 months pregnant at the time, I would totally use it as an excuse to go!
Might I recommend Australia? Totally amazing.
And bpt, Venice is not an open sewer. Its breathtaking and there is a lot of Jewish history there.April 1, 2011 6:20 pm at 6:20 pm #755519
oooh yea, Australia is a good one too!
Who knows rich guys? I need a lifetime travel partner 😉April 1, 2011 6:30 pm at 6:30 pm #755520SJSinNYCMember
No, sorry. But if I find one, I’ll send him your way!April 1, 2011 6:39 pm at 6:39 pm #755521
‘Preciate it!April 1, 2011 8:21 pm at 8:21 pm #755522
“a lot of Jewish history there”
To be taken in, on a gondola ride?
Perhaps. But if it Jewish heritage I want, EY is the place to go.April 3, 2011 1:57 pm at 1:57 pm #755523ShrekMember
Miami. but don’t forget the “shvimkleid”.April 3, 2011 2:26 pm at 2:26 pm #755524happiestMember
