Hi, alchemy!

You will get some useful suggestions if you give us a few more details, such as what time of year you are travelling in (essential information, or we might send you somewhere where it rained every day!), how long you have, and whether you are travelling in a party of one, two, or forty. Also, this will help us to home in on something worthwhile: think of the best holiday you ever had. Where was it, and what made it so special?

Hey There, I don't know what is right for you.. but I am turning 40 in September and what I am planning for the big day is as follows: wake up in an Australian rain forest luxury resort (Silky Oaks).. take a hike, spend 5 hours or so having ridiculously indulgent spa treatments, a 5 star meal, then take a helicopter tour over the Great Barrier Reef.. I've already booked this trip.. and believe me, I can't wait to turn 40! The lipo and botox will have to wait until I get home ...

thanks guys!

Birthday is in August. I think I would like to take another couple of freinds. One friend had suggested hiring a DC3 and flying to King Island for lunch. Sounds OK, I think I want something with a bit more adventure. I'm a luxury girl, my camping under the stars days have passed. Thyra 40th sounds cool. I'd love suggestions!
