DansDeals Adventure DO
« on: December 20, 2012, 03:47:59 PM »
I've been thinking. This forum is full of people with tons of knowledge about different places and a love of travel. Sometimes it's really difficult to go places with just you or your family but maybe people can arrange a trip to somewhere exotic (like Madagascar) that you'd never be able to arrange by yourself and go with with a bunch of DDers.

Things like kosher food would be a lot easier to work out as will shuttle services etc..

Just a thought

Great idea in theory, but a logistical nightmare.

No Debbie Downers on this thread.   :) Let's have some ideas, people. Everyone, leave a comment about that place you always dreamed of going to but never thought it possible.

Mine is a cruise to Antarctica.

I want to see the end of the world. (Not referring to tomorrow's apocolypse).

Dan do you really want to go? Or just the final check on your resume?

So things miles just can't buy...

Although, I guess SPG/Amex will get you anything if you have enough miles...
