In the past I have loved beach resorts for a casual holiday and the resort life.

However now that I am older, I think I would prefer mountains as I am hesitant to put bathers on nowadays and would probably not enjoy it as much as I used to.

Cruises are what I generally do now due to an injury and being unable to life and do the things I used to do, but mountains would be nice!
by Finy
So have you been on a cruise lately Finy?
by Fran
nah, have not Fran -not for a few years now.......the good ones go from Sydney and I don't feel the need to travel now like I used to twice a year!
by Finy
Not having had a holiday for the last 9 years straight!
Give me anything........! at this stage.

I think I would still like the beach or...close to the beach or...a cruise on the ocean
by Fran
What a difficult question!! Haha each with its pros and cons. But if I absolutely had to choose, I'd choose the beach, because that means I can go for a swim whenever I want! (I'm a water sports fan, so anything beach-related instantly wins my heart).
I would prefer the mountains. I love the beach in winter, to walk along damp sand, around rock pools but the mountains are so picturesque, there are more walks to be had and the vistas can be spectacular.
Mountains :D I am not good at swimming, so I am never keen on a beach for vacation. My husband loves both, so that won't be a problem. This is a picture I took on my last vacation where mountains and beach were next to each other :)

I prefer to take my holiday at beachside...
Hmmm. Well now. I love both so it's hard for me to choose! My childhood holidays were wonderful as we always stayed in a little cottage in Wales, which was practically on the beach but also two spits from a beautiful mountain range which included Snowden. So we had the best of both worlds! Many happy memories :)
I love the mountains - during any season!

The mountains. I have been on a lot of beach holidays and I am a bit bored with it. I have very fair skin so I get burned easily and I'm not into fishing. Swimming at the beach is nice but sometimes I fancy a change.
I have to say Mountains,as I love all the views and forests.I live near the beach in Nth Qld,so it is like being on holiday all the time really!! I am very fortunate to never feel the need to leave!!
I love them both, but would much prefer to be at the beach! The ocean is definitely calming for me. I guess the mountains are too...I still prefer the beach.
Holiday in the mountains definitely
by AJ
I love both. I'd just be happy to have a holiday. However I do love to watch the sea.
the beach, I have a negative ions habit
Childhood holidays always by the sea - not always on the beach! We have since lived near mountains - glorious - once past 50, cruises have become the "dream realised" and thus obtain the best of both worlds ... river is calmer but ocean - wonderful and (ok! sad old bag!) only on an over 50's cruise - sorry but cruises are NOT suitable for children anyway - and many of the ancient clientele are worse sometimes than children, anyway!!! Cruises cost no more than a normal type holiday nowadays thus you can go to the sea (ha!) or see the mountains ... and of course it is a privilege anyway - we save up; our next cruise is Dec16 ...
Today I say mountains!!!
Option 3, aha - I like the calm of inland rivers
Not too many mountains where I live, that you can holiday at!
When I was young, the beach, of course!

As got older, much preferred National,Parks, to camp in.

These days', it's comfort all the way!
Am 'thinking' about going on the new 'Ghan' from Alice Springs to Darwin, to 'close' the 'loop', as have already been by 'Old Ghan' via Maree & 'New Ghan' from SA to 'The Alice'.
They were both fantastic trips!
You must have stopped in Oodnadatta then, on the Old Ghan, as I did in May '76?! I ended up staying there a week, with my mum & 3yr old daughter! Wasn't it a slow train?!
by Miro
Yes, miro_, sure did!
As ours' was the first train to operate in four months', due flooding, it was very long, as had SIX vehicle trays' attached. My husband ran from one end to other, & back, whilst we were stopped there; it took him ten minutes'!
by donjo
Donjo, Did you go to the museum & the PINK roadhouse while you were in Oodnadatta?
by Miro
No, because we were only there to take on some supplies', & water.
by donjo
Mountains for me. I am not a beach girl at all.
by Rice
Mountains as it is more scenic.
IF I had to choose between the above 2 places, I would choose the mountains, but apart from that, I would much rather be.....cruising on Sydney returns!!!!
