What was your best and worst vacation experience?
As ever, here are mine:
The best: In Egypt (1992), I went to see the Pyramids of Giza with the Sphinx. Though I knew the pyramids were huge, I didn't know just how big. All the pictures do not do it justice, and the giant pyramid had me gaping in wonder.
The worst: Though I nearly put the dysentery outbreak on the 1992 trip (above), I'll mention the awful food on the boat in Russia. We went there on a river cruise on the Volga between Moscow & St Petersburg. It was an old Soviet boat that had hardly changed. The crew looked like they were still in the KGB. The food was 'typically Russian', with dishes like porriage
that had to be sliced with a knife and fork. Most of the food was uneatable, and I came back ill, with a nasty cough.
Now it's over to you....
