NO VACATION FOR ME THIS YEAR

This post is my contribution to the thirty-second virtual symposium coordinated by the cult leaderess, pocogato12. Please visit the Virtual Symposium Group’s #32 Symposium Link Topic July:Summer Vacations to read other contributions to the 'Summer Vacations' virtual symposium.



Above is Nadiya Bychkova, the Ukrainian professional dancer newly recruited to BBC’s Strictly Coming Dancing show. The next series should be well worth watching!

Her photograph reminded me that I haven’t had or even booked a holiday this year. It looks as if a holiday is not going to happen this year - we say holiday here not vacation!

Things aren’t been helped because I haven’t renewed my passport and my girlfriend has already had two holidays and isn't looking to go on another one. So what I’m going to do is plan for a long and hopefully great holiday next year. There are four holidays I’m thinking about.

First is a road trip across America. My road trip would want to take in Santa Fe, San Francisco and New Orleans. And I want to venture into redneck territory!

Second is a houseboat holiday on the canals of Kerala in southern India. After watching a recent television documentary, I know that I can hire a private houseboat with staff to steer the boat, make meals and generally make me comfortable. I do like being pampered sometimes!

Third is a holiday in southern Spain. I’d like to take in Granada, Seville and Valencia. Seville is famous for its marmalade!

Fourth is a safari in Namibia in southern Africa. Though I’ve been to The Gambia many times, there are no big animals there except for crocodiles. In Namibia I will be able to see elephants, giraffes and rhinos.


Do you have any advice for me about these four holiday plans?
Of the four holiday destinations, what destination most tempts you?
What holidays/vacations have you had or got planned this year?


Now I know why Nadiya Bychkova’s photo reminded me of a holiday - it’s the road trip in America for me. I think she may be quite a good companion on the road trip and I’m sure my girlfriend would be cool about things!

Santa Fe, New Mexico:


a canal in Kerala, India:


Alhambra Palace, Granada:


elephants maybe in Namibia:

That crash was spectacular. There's been a few already.
It's a shame that Mark Cavendish, who's chasing the most stage wins ever, has had to retire and that Peter Sagan has been kicked out - he's the Tour's superstar! I'm not sure Sagan's elbow was deliberate or whether he used his elbow to regain his balance.

The car your friend Nadiya is in looks similar to the 1955 Ford Customline I have.

Do you have any advice for me about these four holiday plans? If you come to the US you at least need to see Yosemite or Yellowstone.

Of the four holiday destinations, what destination most tempts you? New Orleans

What holiday/vacations have you had or got planned this year? None planned right now, maybe a few long weekends in the fall.

When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

Visited New Orleans in, oh what? 1979???? What kind of number is that? Bourbon Street was great!
Divided between that and India!
Seville was my first port. Flew 3 planes that day to go join my first boat! The smell of pine... and the smile on my face...., but still divided.
They all sound amazing, why do you have to ask difficult questions?
Have no plans, but dreamed of many.
Happy planning!

Of the four holiday destinations, what destination most tempts you? Actually I would prefer to get back to Puerto Rico, but their severe fiscal crisis is influencing me for the first time 30 years to avoid it for a while

What holiday/vacations have you had or got planned this year? Probably like you, none this year

If you do the New Mexico trip, fly into Sunport in Albuquerque and drive to Santa Fe. Plan your trip through Albuquerque ( stop at the BioPark and Zoo) to the Turquoise Trail ( you can pull this up on the web easily and pick your stops) before you reach Santa Fe- it's an amazing adventure. A lunch visit to La Fonda in Santa Fe is a real treat. A stroll around the Governor's Palace and the artists' plaza is a marvelous sight as well as a visit inside the Saint Francis of Assisi Cathedral. The Super 8 3358 Cerrillos Rd is a good place to stay and the rate includes breakfast. Turn right out of the drive and you have to stop at TinNee Ann a gift boutique full of local goods by the Indians. Dinner might find you at Los Potrillos on the way back to the motel. I'd be happy to do you a travelogue so that you end up in Maine eating lobster, shrimp and clams

redneck USA? are you sure about that one? New Orleans is marvelous but there are some other parts of that area that are lean and mean.

Have you ever thought about driving across Canada for your holidays? It is the second largest country land wise with the most amount of fresh water lakes in the world..

I just returned from a month long holiday with family and friends myself.I have no passport either so never travel outside of Canada but there is still much for me here that I have never traveled to..

One can never have enough JOY in their life...

    Stay well north of the Mason-Dixon line. But if you must, then don't forget to visit Richmond and Petersburg and the Civil War Battlefields. Belle Island was a prison camp for union soldiers, many died of unsanitary conditions or were shot attempting to swim to freedom. You can go on a guided tour of the slave market and visit the site of Chimborazo Hospital. Further south you can visit Henricus a city of firsts, it was actually the second settlement in VA the first successful one after the failed Jamestown. Pocahontas was kept there and converted to Christianity. Nearby is City Point (today's Hopewell) served as General Ulysses S. Grant's headquarters during the Siege of Petersburg. Then visit Petersburg and the site of the Battle of the Crater where Union forces were halted. Dine on Cary Street in Richmond, visiting quaint shops there. In Richmond you can visit the White House of the Confederacy and then complete an all things Lincoln tour and take in a show at Fords Theater in D.C.

    Of the four holiday destinations, what destination most tempts you? I suppose a visit to The States, um... is South Jersey far enough south for ya Hugh?

    What holiday/vacations have you had or got planned this year? Not a single one, but I do expect to make a return trip to Wales at some point or another. I'd love to see Niagara Falls again one day, it's just about my favorite spot on the planet, not that I've actually seen much of the planet.

    Whatever you do, do enjoy yourself and safe travels... x
South Jersey is definitely south enough for me, but I've got this strange urge of going really south into redneck territory. I know I'll be very disappointed, just as it's very disappointing going into Brexit territory here!

    I know New Orleans is hyped up but I didn't find it very enjoyable and somehow I missed getting beignets at Cafe Du Monde, probably due to the crowd. My most vivid memory of the place was how loud and crowded it was and how much it reeked of garbage and sewage, made much worse by the heat of summer. One visit there was more than enough for a lifetime. Our hotel actually passed out maps, drawing a line down the middle of one street, we were warned not to venture there and not even to walk on that side of the street. Nope, not interested in seeing it again. I think Hugh should skip that, maybe it's different now though, dunno.
Yesterday I had a conversation about New Orleans and they said the scars of Hurricane Katrina are still there for all to see. Shame on you George W Bush!

I'm presuming a fiscal crisis in Puerto Rico means your dollar goes farther but if there's disorder and riots following that crisis I can fully understand why you're not going now. I'm just guessing and probably guessing wrong!

India has always been a fascinating place for me - some friends who have been there hate it and some love it. I think it may be a country of extremes - poverty and luxury!

Hi Citi, Route 66 doesn't exist today, in the sense of what it was once, or promoted to be. Much of it has been absorbed into the federal Interstate system, and into urban landscape so that you'd not see the former road culture. US interstate is broken up into 15 minute piss stops, while the old Route 66 was a Chicago to LA adventure, side shows like world's largest frying pan or bronco Billy's last hoorah. You can find runs of the rural route, but the road has so deteriorated that it is more a gravel rut than road.

Aside from US 66, there are numerous alternatives to the US Interstate system, rural routes into the diversity of Merkins.

We suffer primarily not from our vices or our weaknesses, but from our illusions. We are haunted, not by reality, but by those images we have put in their place.

Hi'ya Spunky ... so much to say, and a difficult touch keypad with auto correct changing words as a barrier.

You may know (or not) that I am and have been a homeless drifter for eight or so years, all over the US, and one thing is true; ignorance and bias is everywhere. But as Samuel Clemons said, travel overcomes those mental deficiencies. You will find ignorant humans in New Jersey as well New Orleans. IF all you see in New Orleans is a bar, and Bourbon Street, yea, you gonna smell tourist puke, and their garbage. It is a small city, but so much more to it than the Vieu Carre (do ya Polly Frenchy?). The city has extensive mass transit, get a room in another part of the city, slow down southern style, get yaself a sazarac, sitonna stoop and talk to neighbors. They'll tell ya bout some good eats, where's a dance goin, maybe a festival ...

Domandginger traveled from Georgia to Tenneessee a few years back, you should ask them of their travels through "the south". I suggested alternative rural routes rather than the usual Interstate route most folks take ... But I don't know what they chose.

If you do choose to visit Nu Awlinz, lemme know and I'll try to find the post series I did on New Orleans, and forward a copy. But you have to give me time, I do not keep my archive in my backpack, and I do not have a computer, much less an ISP wall socket.

Santa Fe is a bit like New Orleans, a tourist trap if that is all you want, expect. They give tourists maps, but that ain't gonna help. You will get lost, because the old town street grid is fuckin screwy. That said, slow down, enjoy being lost, get a drink, eat some of the local grub, talk to the local neighbors, everyone of them is either an artist or knows a dozen. Santa Fe is an old community, a 17th century Spanish settlement, I think.

And New Mexico is gorgeous. SO much to see. for the most part the people are kind, patient. ANd petrol is cheap on the rez, always buy yer gas and fags on the native's reservations - they don't pay federal taxes. UMmm, there is a world heritage site in northwest NM, Chaco Canyon. White Sands National monument, Taos is great skiing in winter, October is balloon festival in Albuquerque - really fine a dusk when they fire up for a night run. Carlsbad Caverns is in southeast NM, impressive caves. Say you drive to Nu Awlinz for whatever time, then travel west on I-10 to El Paso. Texas is big, it will take a couple days. SO see the finest cave formation on the planet just west of San Antonio (I know it sounds like bullshite, but no exaggeration). It is small, not far off I-10, certainly worth the time. Don't remember the name, goober caves in Texas, caverns of sum tin or other. Halfway between San Antonio and El Paso is a petrol stop (only one, don't miss it), here you can go northwest into New Mexico to Carlsbad, then that UFO town Roswell, then through White Sands to north-south interstate, onward to Albuquerque and Santa Fe.

And then you can continue on into the desert ... Monument Valley, Antelope Canyon, Grande Canyon ... theres a hole on the ground where a meteor struck, just past Winslow, AZ ... such a fine site to see ...

Bla bla bla ...

Thanks for this great information about New Orleans and New Mexico; it's further whetted my appetite to do that road trip.
I do speak a little French and normally when I travel I stay off the well beaten tourist trail; off the trail is where the best and at least authentic adventures normally happen.

Moments ago I read news coverage of two preteen boys who stumbled over a one million-year-old fossil, in the desert just outside Las Cruces, NM. That could be you Have you considered cycling around US, area of your interest? All you need is your bike, maintenance kit, a water-pack, and a change of clothes that fits in pack with some food. Most of the time you can sleep in the desert, minimizing expense while maximizing adventure. The one place you cannot reach by cycle is Chaco Canyon, on reservation land, connected by a corrogated dirt road (erosion) that will warp your wheels, beat your back into putty. I think the road is 50-60 miles long, but I could only drive at clutch speed in low gear. Took six or so hours. Once there I didn't want to leave. The view of the night sky is almost indescribable ... No moisture, atmosphere to cloud sky, no light pollution, just amazing view of stars, Milky Way, satellites, jets (obvious difference after you see), meteorites, and so forth.

But you would see same thing biking around Morocco, or India. Except ancient Anistazi ruins in Chaco Canyon.

After Brexit you'll be able to get a UK one, though I'm quite fond of the EU passport.

Santa fe and San Fran are hardly "redneck" places, and actually neither is New Orleans. ALL THREE are wonderful and interesting though. For hard-core redneck, try the Redneck Riveria, the NW corner of Florida over in to Alabama, Pensacola or Panama City FL, Mobile AL. Alternately, places like Atlanta, Dallas or Memphis.

For sure the ULTIMATE US road trip is Historic Route US-66, from Chicago to Santa Monica (just north of LA). Best preserved parts are Oklahoma, across the panhandle of Texas, NM (including Santa Fe) and AZ. Wonderful alternate is The Overseas Highway, US-1 from Key Largo to Key West FL.

Happy HNW.

Many thanks for your 'redneck' guide to America, I've been to America a few times but I've always gone to the East coast.

If you ever do manage that dream trip to the US, you should check out some of the nudist resorts.

Mine is in North Idaho, which could be considered "redneck country" by some.

Check out my profile or and become a "watcher" of my blog FMAOPLS,to learn more about me, and for intelligent, lively, smartassy and fun discussion, with a little irreverence thrown in. "Like" or comment on my photos, and I promise I'll add more. Thanks.

I would love to go to a nudist resport when I next visit the US; it would make for a lighter suitcase!
