    SHOUT OUT! What's Your Ideal Holiday Spot?

    Here in Minnesota, June is the prime vacation month. The weather is as good as it gets during the year. Yet many Minnesotans take their holiday during the winter, forsaking the cold for warmer climates. And then there are some who do just the opposite!

    I recently saw a documentary and visited the page on the Ice Hotel in Sweden. It made me wonder what time of year and where would you spend your ideal holiday?

    Please also vote in our poll and tell us which season is your favorite for vacationing.

    My favorite time is 4th of July week. I love traveling to see how other areas celebrate the US's Independence day.

    The summer, since I don't need to be around for classes. I'll be taking one class this summer, but it'll be taught online, so I can tune into the lectures and live chats from anywhere in the world.

    I'd like to visit Japan soon if possible I think I've learned just enough Japanese to keep out of trouble (understand directions, pay for things, tell a cab where to take me home, etc) and read some of the signs/packages.

    My favorite vacation season was the snowy season, which is the Christmas season! although it's kinda expensive but it's worth it.

    I like Colombia... friendliest country I've been too. But I think my next trip (I mix vacation with work regularly and extensively) should be somewhere in Asia... maybe South Korea.

    Colombia... friendly? Interesting. I've got a couple of friends who moved to the US from Cali and Bogota, Colombia and have painted a much different picture.

    Autumn for me... gives me something to look forward to for the latter part of the year, means I'm not surrounded by lots of kids, get a better price because I don't go prime time (i.e. summer).

    My wife and I like to go to Florida but it's also great to stay here in Vancouver during the summer. I would like to go to Fiji sometime.

    Summertime, I love the warm sunny weather here in Israel. Wintertime makes me depressive! And that's funny, since all my life I lived in Holland where most of the time the weather is cold and sucks.

    I love taking break in the winter season; when the weather is cold and chilly outside I opt for the sunny beaches of SOBE or the sky blue waters of beaches in East Africa.

    Getting out of Kansas in the winter is nice. Went to the Bahamas last year in November. Had a blast.

    You forgot rainy and dry seasons from that list, Shyflower.

    Nice avatar, by the way.
