I Need a Vacation

1.When at the ocean, do you want to be in it, on it, or just look at it? (If you don’t like visiting the ocean, what is a hobby you enjoy on vacation or in general?)
I like all three, looking at the ocean, being on the ocean and being in the ocean.  Out of the three, being on the ocean is the thing that I have done the least, as I went fishing once, I went on a glass bottom boat ride, I went on a gambling cruise and on a party boat.  I never went water skiing.  As far as being in the ocean, I do like body surfing, but the only problem with that is sometimes the waves make me lose my bathing suit.

2. Have you ever surfed or gone snorkeling?
I did try surfing, but I was never good enough to get a decent ride and I did try wind surfing.  In Hawaii, I tried Snuba.

3. When traveling, do you experiment with the local dining experience or pack a picnic/cook for yourself and anyone with you?
I have done both.

4. What is your biggest pet peeve when traveling?
Finding clean bathrooms.

5. Are you someone who takes a lot of photos on vacation? If so, you can share your favorite vacation photos. (If not, share your favorite vacation story.)
I am not known for taking a lot of pictures, but I do have a funny story about traveling back home from Rio De Janeiro, Brazil.  Something that I ate for breakfast that morning didn’t agree with me, and my stomach bothered me when I got on the plane.  I got up from my seat about 10 times to use the bathroom, but only gas came out.  I felt that urge again and I decided to just let some gas out in my seat, instead of going to the bathroom this time.  What a mistake that was, as when I farted it smelled really bad and every mother on the plane started changing their baby’s diapers right after that.  There was a blind lady in the row in front of me and she started hitting her dog with her cane and saying, “Bad dog.”  I told my wife that the smell came from me, and she changed her seat.

  2. 1.When at the ocean, do you want to be in it, on it, or just look at it? – I’m spoilt for choice as their is a coastline covering the whole of Cornwall. I now just prefer looking at the ocean from the coastal path.

    4. What is your biggest pet peeve when traveling? – Trying to find a parking space!

  3. I have a similar story that happened to me on this trip. Thank God that we were not on a plane, but I had a gallbladder attack and was very sick the first night and half of the next day. I was yacking like Linda Blair in the Exorcist and many trips to the royal porcelain throne. I thought I was dying lol. Our whole hotel room was tainted with me…so bad it woke my sister lol.

    I enjoyed the song and answers, Jim! Thanks for rambling with me!
