I'd prefer one of the Greek islands and forget the technology for a while...

GA G.K,

I don't understand why anyone would take work with them on vacation, be it only a conciousness of possibilities that may present.

Sorry guys, that is an anal approach, unless your work for yourself, where you must always be on the lookout!

The further off the beaten track, the better!! Get out of that box...

Mauna Kea, Hawaii. A trip to Hawaii is good anytime but especially good during winter months.

Most New Yorkers retire to a warmer place, not a colder one.
