What's your best vacation ever?
I know it is corny, but mine was our honeymoon. We were living in Canada, but got married in England, so we stayed in Britain for the honeymoon. We'd had a conference in La Rochelle 2 weeks before the wedding, so we 'did' Paris then (and very nice it was too) and got home with a week to spare. The perfect way to plan a wedding.
But our honeymoon was in Cornwall. In this ancient, one-bedroom cottage with a four-poster bed, and blessed peace and quiet. We hiked the coastal paths, scrambled over the Cheese Wring on Bodmin Moor. Shivered going through Princetown with creepy Dartmoor Prison crouched in the mist. Supped at Jamaica Inn, and climbed all over Tintagel. It was gorgeous and wonderful and lovely.
The only downside of our honeymoon was finding out my granny had died the morning we returned. Bittersweet memories. Always.
