I'm a security engineer for a large technology company and having a trip booked to somewhere far away to look forward to helps me stay sane!
My wife and I love traveling together. Our wedding and honey moon involved a Castle in Northern Ireland, a four day trip to London, a layover in Saudi Arabia, a dangerously short 2-hour connection between terminals (15 minute taxi ride away) in Malaysia, negotiating with a hired driver at 11pm in Denpasar, Indonesia, a week in Ubud, Bali and a very long flight home via Incheon, Korea.
I guess going completely around the world for our honeymoon kinda set the tone.
Our idea of a perfect get-away is privacy with a nice view, a good book and a glass of cabernet.
