the most exciting part of the trip is when the plane starts hurling down the runway

Every man knows the most exciting part is right before she screams and digs her fingernails into the skin on your back!

Elderly couple go on a cruise, and the wife says I want to make love tonight just like we did when we were young.

But the seas are rough and the ship is starting to roll.

So the husband goes down to the ship's pharmacy and buys a bottle of seasick pills and a box of condoms.

And the clerk says "If it's that unpleasant, why do you bother?"

foriegn sex is definately the best part of a trip, whether it is with the current partner, or with a special someone you met during your travels.

Definately the anticipation. I will be in Ireland counting down the days 24.... I feel like I'll never get there! I'm stuck to this board in the meantime. And then once your plane lands you know you're in for something wonderful.

Hmm, I disagree with the travel sex being the best, if you're staying in one- and two-star hotels and ferry bunks. Thin lumpy beds with a separation down the middle, scrawny pillows, towels as thin as dishrags, possibly no private bathroom, showers that soak the floor, thin walls, "odd" insect bites and itches, together with jetlag and physical exhaustion from running around all day... get the picture?

Exciting part is the adventures OUTSIDE the hotel room, which rarely include sex!

It sounds like you have traveled to Europe a lot.

And you've never, or rarely, had sex outside the room?

Shame.

25% --- planning and preparation
50% --- the trip itself
25% --- Reminiscing and sharing the experience through dialogue and pictures.

Now, where's that foreign Babe!!

The planning and anticipation of doing what you plan is about 50% of the excitement for me. Then I love to pack, read all my travel documentation, learning a few words or more of whatever language they speak. Buying things for the trip, etc.

The other 50% is actually going on the vacation and being able to share a special memory when you get home.

Thanks for the chuckle, "oh my". I've only been to Europe once, but maybe I'll have better luck with "Al Fresco" next time!

I would have to say the VERY long walk from the airplane to the baggage check and from the baggage check outside - the anticipation of ACTUALLY arriving in a new destination is agonizing! "The Walk" as I now affectionatly call it seems to take a year...

Planning is really fun but I think the most exciting time is when we're leaving the airport of the country we have just flown into and driving to the hotel--yes, WE HAVE ARRIVED--we're actually on this vacation! For the caribbean it's that first glimpse of the incredible blue color of the ocean.
