    Taking my bride of 32 years to Rome, Tuscany, Florence, Milan, and Barcelona in late May, using an RCI exchange for a week in Tuscany.

    Heading to San Diego in December for a post-harvest/post-crazy season getaway.

    Two weeks on Kauai in April...even now, I can't wait to feel those soft trade winds...sigh.

    Our daughter just turned 3 so we are not stuck on a school schedule yet.. :D. Company I work for is totally flexible so I also get to work while traveling as long as I have a phone and Internet..

    Dh just changed jobs so his vacation time has been reduced but his new company is also flexible with working remotely so we'll see how that goes!

    March Las Vegas Marriott Grand Chateau - husband's annual golf trip with his buddies
    March Branson Marriott Willow Ridge Lodge - spring break
    June Aruba Surf Club
    June Orlando Marriott Sabal Palms -thinking about giving this week to my nephew and his young family
    August Fort Lauderdale Marriott Beach Place Towers
    December Las Vegas Marriott Grand Chateau again

    Unfortunately we are limited to school schedules. Wish schools would still have a week long fall break in October, that used to be my favorite time to travel.

    are you saying you are renting all those places for that price? i am super-new to this website. going through divorce and trying to decide whether to keep one of the two hyatt vacation weeks we own, (coconut plantation and beach house in key west) OR

    get out of paying maintenance fees at all and simply rent from now on. at your rental rates, it seems like a no brainer. where/how did you book for those prices?

    First trip doesn't have us staying in a timeshare resort as we are flying next thru to Dallas for DD's wedding. We are baby sitting their house and dog and cat for a week. We rented them a unit in Maui for their honeymoon plus the Luau.:whoopie:

    Then Aug 24th we are going back up to our home resort in Lake Tahoe at the Ridge! Life does slow down after 60!:ponder:

    Three weeks ago we did a family vacation (There were 11 of us, with 4 kids under 6 years old) to Cuba. It was lots of fun! Tomorrow, we are off to Las Vegas with some friends. We are staying at the Grandview. So far, we have no other plans for the rest of 2012.

    I'm going to ...

    My wife and I are planning a trip to the Dominican Republic in August. We're staying on the south side of the island which doesn't have as many tourist and crowds. Hoping to find some nice beaches with few other people to relax in the sun.

    No, Ridewithme38. There are no TS's in Cuba at all. We did an all-inclusive and stayed in a hotel unit called a family suite. It had 2 double beds and a fold-up single cot. Makes you really miss timeshare units when you are in a hotel room for a week!

    11 people in a "family suite"? Third world luxury. What is enjoyable about that?

    We have been busy booking these XYZs. We added Marriott Grande Vista three times.
    First is May 31-June 6...before most schools are out.
    Second time is Sept 22-29 following our Sanibel week.
    Third week is Sept 29-Oct. 6 for my hubby to take a buddy to play golf.

    I am taking 2 girlfriends to Royal Sands the week of Sept 29-Oct 6 while my hubby and another hubby are playing golf in Orlando. Hubby did not want
    to go to Mexico. Looking forward to a trip with the girls.

    We still have a 2 bedroom to XYZ and a studio. Don't know if we will do the studio. If I can get SBP with a limited kitchen we may go dancing in MB again.

    Oh, I forgot to mention we booked New Orleans December 14-21. We got a 1 br from a studio. Go figure. Never been to NO. It is supposed to be beautiful at Christmas. Looking forward to it.
    We will be broke after this year of traveling. Our big trip above was wonderful. April-7-May 13.

    I have already contacted the Canadian government and they assured me that any attempt for Canadian citizenship by Ride will be denied!

    Ride,
    Have you gone to Cuba yet?
    We want to go.
    Many of my classmates who had to "duck & cover" in October 1962 during the Cuban Missiles Crisis want to go with the classmates who showed up in Tampa & Miami schools that month doubling the attendence. We were in first grade and had NO IDEA why.

    Most American go to Cuba from Cozumel or Cancun.

    Let me know IF you are going to Cuba this year and what you think of it. My classmates want to go for a 2014 reunion.

    Thanks to some last minute developments at work, I have had to cancel all of my timeshare vacations this year so far, but my non-timeshare week long vacations have all worked out:

    April - Silesia, Poland
    July - Crimea, Ukraine seaside
    as well as long weekend trips to Transylvania, Romania for the medieval fortified churches, to Viena and to Munich.

    I have one more week long vacation (non-timeshare) scheduled in late August for Norway and Sweden and a long weekend in Istanbul in September. I will also be back in Poland for a week for a conference in September.

    Now that my schedule is calmed down, I am looking at timeshare trips as well for the Fall.

    Soon, this thread will need to be retitled: "Where's every one been.."
    I'm into 2013 planning, myself.
