The only vacation I remember really enjoying was when I went to San Diego with my older sister back in 2007. We won that trip to see Gwen Stefani in concert. It was really fun. I'd post photos but i have too many and I don't want to spam this thread.
My wife and I flew to Japan for a week to do it. We went to Tokyo, Mt. Fuji, and Osaka. It was an eye-opener with the different cultures and people. We've been outside the country before but Japan is nothing like Europe or Mexico. It was wild. We partied, made friends, ate great food, saw things nowhere outside of Asia, and learned so much. We had great pictures until I lost our digital camera on the bullet train. It was one of the worst things I've ever done. I cried for days as a grown man.
We ended up buying a few disposable cameras with real film. Some people took our pictures and didn't know exactly how to work them. it was hilarious.
I never drank so much sake in my life. I loved it. I would move back.
