1.  We've talked a lot about our favorite season's over the years, but what is your least favorite, and why?

2.  Summer time is camping season.  Do you camp?  What types of locations do you prefer?

3.  Is summer *your* big get away season, what types of *get aways* do you enjoy?

1.  I love each new season, but I am usually sick of it by the end of it, lol.  Just as I don't have a favorite, I don't have a least favorite.

2.  I do NOT camp.  I hate camping.

3.  Eh, we go on many weekend and day trips throughout the year.  We actually avoid a lot of travel in the summer when *destinations* are often crowded.

1.  We've talked a lot about our favorite season's over the years, but what is your least favorite, and why? In Greece it is the height of summer, because it is too hot for my taste. In Denmark and NY it is the winter, because it is too cold, dark and miserable. I liked Northern California the best, climate-wise.

2.  Summer time is camping season.  Do you camp?  What types of locations do you prefer? Good heavens, NO! I don't even really like staying in country houses, due to the critters etc.

3.  Is summer *your* big get away season, what types of *get aways* do you enjoy? I like taking short trips. Last year we went to NY, Nicosia and to Paris. Other years we have gone to Rome, my favorite, Berlin and then I usually go to Copenhagen in the summer (to escape the Greek heat). As you may have noticed, all those destinations are cities ;) I like my amenities and stuff to do. This summer will be Thessalonica, Copenhagen, maybe NY and/or Berlin, depending on what we have to get done.

1. Winter. It's cold. And dark too much. There are too many layers of clothing involved. My floors get tracked up. Driving is more dangerous. And I don't ski. 2. We used to. DH Doesn't enjoy it anymore, so we kind of quit. 3. I'll pretty much go anywhere anytime for any reason, lol.

1.  We've talked a lot about our favorite season's over the years, but what is your least favorite, and why? Winter.  I hate the cold and snow and dark.

2.  Summer time is camping season.  Do you camp?  What types of locations do you prefer?  No camping here. I'm a hotel-staying kind of girl.  Although I did see a blog post earlier this week of a family camping near a river-- it looked like a lot of fun.

3.  Is summer *your* big get away season, what types of *get aways* do you enjoy? Last year we went to the Outer Banks.  I like pretty much any vacation.  With small kids, the relax by the beach or pool kind of vacation is more enjoyable than the go to a ton of cool places (historic sites, big cities, etc.) kind of vacation for me.

"I can't relax. Kids and water and/or fire do not mix," ---------- Agree, going to the beach with dd used to be one of my absolutely least favorite chores.

Summer. Because it's 8 months long and hotter than Hades. The beginning of summer is OK; school's out, it's not unbearable yet, but it gets old. By the 4th of July most of us are over it.

2.  Summer time is camping season.  Do you camp?  What types of locations do you prefer?

Yes, we love to camp. We go to a place in the Keys that is right on the water, has all the facilities you could ask for, and is close--but not TOO close--to Key West. We also camp with DS' cub scout pack. But rarely in the heat of summer.

3.  Is summer *your* big get away season, what types of *get aways* do you enjoy?

We go as far north as possible! It's only "get-away" season because the kids are out of school and we have more flexibility to travel. We are close to many theme parks, but we don't go there in the summer. 99 degrees+95% humidity+no breeze+100,000 sweaty people from all walks of life=not my idea of fun. :)

1. I actually like summer the least. I don't like the heat.

2. We have a basic pop-up camper, I like camp if by camp you mean, parking the camper at the lake campground for a night so we can legally strike up a campfire and eating flaming marshmallows. 

3. I like all of them. I look forward to all travel, even when it's just trade show stuff with dh for work.

Winter.  Because it's cold.

My only camping experience ever (which was also my most recent vacation) was at the beach about 10 years ago and involved 4 children between the ages of 4 and 12, and 5 inches of rain within a 2-hour period.  We ended up all sleeping in the van that night, completely soaking wet, putting everything into plastic bags and going home first thing the next morning.  Not something I wish to repeat, ever.  

3.  Is summer *your* big get away season, what types of *get aways* do you enjoy?

I don't have a get away season.

Winter, A white Christmas is one thing but after that I'm ready for Spring!  Why?  B/c I don't like the cold and I don't like having to layer up all the time.  No.  I am really flexible insofar as vacations, We have fun getting away.  There are the sites too!
