i got to be in east germany right after the Wall came down but before the reunification of Germany. there were no hotels,(we'd ask around town who wanted to rent us a room in their home!) grocery stores had no fresh food, but maybe a few potatoes and they were the size of your living room probly)(the store not the potato), the cobblestone streets were a mess, there was scaffordling on every other house it seemed, in case the family living in it was able to buy a few bricks or new window on the black market. Churches rarely had the steeple any mopre(WWII)
all the buildings that were once white were yellowish grey due to horrible polution .
that same polution made for some of the most spectacular sunsets.
There were still soldiers marching in 4s stick legged thru the streets.)and you do NOT take their picture...OPPS)

You did say 'best' right ??? ...

A short trip to London in 2005 with Jennifer was wonderful, but I think my favorite trip ever was my 50th to Vegas with Jen and Michael. We were all emotional after just putting down our beloved cat (best pet EVER) the day before, it was a crazy car trip, Michael and I went skydiving, we laughed, we cried, we ate, we drank - it was a fantastic weekend!

 

I've never been to Omaha Steak ; )

HA! We are both wrong ...

January 3 2012, 12:55 PM 

Well, kind of.

I have been to Omaha Steaks, there's a store in Huntington Beach.

Have to add that one to the list of hot spots I've visited.

 

And that gives me an idea for my final, late, Christmas gift. I've been wondering what to give a couple who love to grill out.

I remembered going into a meat place and had to google ...

January 3 2012, 1:15 PM 

It was ridiculously expensive and I left right away. Looking at the sale prices online today they aren't too bad. I guess it's safe to use them, they've been around a long time.

Well, the best so far...

Would be touring the Galapagos Islands with Mrs. Weed and all the kids. Words really can't describe the place.
In addition, it was the last full family trip before kids started going off to college, and one of the few family
trips where nobody had a 'melt down'.
We didn't do scuba at the time, so Mrs. Weed and I hope to go back just for the diving but, alas, it's highly
unlikely we'll travel with all the kids for a long time to come.

But really, the best trip is always the next one.

I like that sentiment ...

January 3 2012, 1:03 PM 

I've heard a few people say that their vacation to the Galapagos Islands was their favorite. I don't know that I could do the scuba diving - as obsessed as I am with water, I have issues with being under it. But it sounds beautiful and I'd like to see the islands.

So many good memories of quite a few trips, but the one that

January 3 2012, 2:31 PM 

I will say was the best, cause it can never happen again, is the trip to Italy with my Aunt Angie in the early 80s. She passed away a year ago. We had such a good time and laughed a LOT... sharing memories to last a lifetime.

We booked onto the tail end of a charter they were trying to fill. Two weeks in Italy, all hotels and transportation (even flights there & back) were included... for $900. That price will never come around again.

January 3 2012, 2:45 PM

I almost chose a trip with Mama Weed for the same reason.

rich biotch?

I wish I had taken more time like that. When you get old(er) like I am and can take more trips because I have the time.... I take less of the adventurous types because of knees - or whatever (you get the point). Those that are willing to "possibly" travel" work and/or can't go. Those that are also retired cannot afford to go.... Going by oneself gets old.

Though, my oldest kid is traveling the world (Christmas at the Taj Mahal) and I envy him. I'm a little old for hostels and such, but I hope to keep my health long enough for some adventures after #3 graduates.

Hard to choose...

January 3 2012, 3:10 PM 

Probably the last family trip taken (Spring 1965) with my parents, brother & sister to visit oldest brother when he was in the service. Within the year both brothers & sister were married & expecting. My life changed forever. 

There have been many trips taken with Mr Mooch - Hawaii, Germany, Paris but going to Disney was probably the most fun trip.

Trip to Europe with my 11-year old son . . . . .

January 3 2012, 3:37 PM 

And he is now 49. We spent five nights in Rome (stayed at a convent a couple blocks from St. Peter's), then two weeks traveling around Spain staying at little hotels where the locals stayed (and a little Spanish was needed), then two nights in Lisbon on the way home.

But for just plain fun, any trip to the Disney parks -- I have been to Disneyland four times and to Disneyland once.
