Aruba :D Topless beaches :thumb:

But it depends if I want sun or city......kinda hard.

The worst? Every where I've been seems better than where I am now so there is no worse.

Aruba! I've always been adviced to go to one of the few remaining Dutch colonies. Is it really that good?

My worst holiday experience was when I almost got arrested by Italian soldiers for accidently taking a picture of a military aeroport... :scared:

Aruba the beaches rock! Pure white, clean sand. Beautiful turquoise water.

The Island on a whole is really nice. It's rather small though. You can drive around it in a matter of hours.

But for such a small Island, they are enough things to do.

I have only been to one part of Curacioa for one day. It does look like a little Holland. Nice place.

Yes he is, they thought he was a spy.


All my holidays and places that I visited where a lot of fun, but THE party place was definitely Portugal, Algarve, south of Portugal! The sea was kind of cold, but there was a yummi Sangria waiting for you afterwards to warm you up, so we didn't complain :D And I loved the dance pubs they got, cause when you look from the street it looks like an ordinary pub, but when you go in and you cross it you find yourself at the back where the dancefloor stands on the open.

My worst memories: this summer we were going from the island back to the mainland and the storm got us and all the heavy sea put our sailboat almost to a vertical position and flipping it over. We couldn't stop by in the nearest harbour because the waves would throw us in the rocks, so we had to wait on the open sea. It was pretty scary :scared:

Thank God you're here now and not at the bottom of the ocean ;)

See Erik's James Bond? :cool:

Night life in Portugal is good? That's cool.

That sounds brilliant! As for Curaçao - many cities there were build after Dutch cities due to the islands leaders having problems with home-sickness! :LOL:

Best places I've been to: Scotland, Manchester, Perth, Melbourne, Genting Highlands...

London is okay. My sis and I almost got chased by a drunk:eek:

...and in Israel, there are too many soldiers with big guns around for my liking :scared:

London rules imo - arguably the best place in England!

As for Israel - I would really love to go there! For a large part out of cultural perspective :nerd: ;)

Has anyone got any advice? Oded?

if you want to go because of a cultural prespective then go to jerusalem (i lived there but we moved because we don't like those very religious jews and there are a thousand of them in jerusalem).

just to have fun you you can go to eilat (very hot), tveria....
but it's true sarah there allways those security guys, someone have to defend.
