My wife and I just booked a trip to Greece in September. Santorini and Crete. If anyone has ever been please send me your recommendations!

 

I'm also going to Curacao in May for my 40th.

 

Where are you going this year?

Vegas in two weeks for work

Sarasota late March

Likely going to Atlanta and Athens in late September for a Braves game and Notre Dame vs Georgia

There is baseball, and occasionally there are other things of note

Oh and Seattle for Ravens Seahawks as long as the game isn’t on Christmas or something.

Yeah I would like to make that trip. Have friends in Vancouver who are Ravens fans so it would be cool to meet them for the game and I have never been to the US NW. Been to Vancouver.

The wife and I were just trying to sneak in a trip to Barbados in March, almost everything is booked though, and our summers are crazy with the kids' sports schedules so we are going to try to squeeze it in later. Hope you have a great couple months!

We aren't sure if we'll do any big trip this year, but here's some mostly minor stuff:

- Just spent two nights down in Richmond, and will be going back with some friends in June

- Long friends weekend in Asheville

- Spring break in Orlando / Cocoa Beach, where one of Kelly's Aunt's lives.

- NYC in late June where we'll be seeing Hamilton again (got tickets for my Dad and his wife as a gift that covers birthdays, xmas, and Father's Day)

- I'll probably do a guy's long weekend in SoCal when the O's visit in late July.

- Seattle during Labor Day Weekend for a wedding

Otherwise, we'll likely do something longer in August, but not sure what yet.

Taking the year off (outside of a mini-vacay in the summer to some beachy area TBD). 

 

Might just take a 3-day trip to NO later in the year, once things get less haywire. Then we can do it big in 2020.

My wife is traveling to Vancouver in April. BWI has a decent flight for $387. I'm always tight with time off so I would take a Sunday night red eye home at 10:30 p.m. and land at 9:30 a.m. then head straight in to work!

Finally visiting SF in July... will definitely come back for some advice here soon. Granted, it's for a wedding, but we will have plenty of time to do our own thing. My ladies father is already planning a Nappa Valley trip, but I'll still have a few days to plan for.

Napa is awesome. I have some recommendations when you're ready.

There is a little beach/park area right at the base of the Golden Gate Bridge on the SF side. I recommend going there for an hour or so and just sitting on a bench and taking in the scenery.

The breeze and sunshine is just the most relaxing thing ever.

My wife travels to Hudson, WI regularly for work. She'll be there the end of April and the O's play the Twins that weekend. Thinking of going for the weekend to catch a game. Depends on the cost of some work we need done on my wife's car, but it should be a pretty inexpensive weekend. Anyone ever been to a Twins game? Recommendations on bars or restaurants in downtown Minneapolis?

We went to Napa last fall. It was the worst vacation of my life. One of those situations where everything goes wrong. That's not entirely a reflection of Napa, but some of it is. If your trip will include staying overnight, my one piece of advice would be do NOT stay in the town of Napa. It's not the slow paced, small town it's reputation would have you believe.  


Good news! I saw a dog today.

We're visiting the in-laws, who moved to the suburbs of Houston, last fall. So I planned the trip to coincide with the O's being in town to play the Astros.

I didn't visit Napa proper, just the Napa Valley.
