Something to be said for traveling to a new place and finding a good surface where one can roller skate. Sadly skates are heavy to take on long trips and not widely accepted in many tourist locales, yet there is such a feeling of freedom I get from the scenery and the freeddom and speed I can achieve on good pavement.

What Dag said. The walking part, especially, is important.

@Merry Andrew,
The very first thing I do if it's a vacation near any sort of beach - even at the north sea- is drop my bags and go down to the water. If it's warm I'll take time to change into a bathing suit - if it's cold and rainy- no matter- I put on a raincoat and make a beeline straight for the sea.
If I'm near the water - I'll swim every day. I guess I have to say that's my very favorite travel activity - submerging in a warm ocean and just floating looking at the sky.

A lot of it depends on who you're with. Sometimes it's fun just to hang out and be lazy.
If the point is to explore and soak up the culture, I'll spend part of every day doing that - but I don't like those rush, rush, rush, see this and see that sort of holidays. I really love the ones where the place you're staying is full of people and atmosphere that are just as interesting as the touristy sights to see. I like eating lunch out - but cooking in at dinner- so I love holidays where you have a cottage or house you can cook in and maybe a local pub or bar to walk down to in the evening for a drink.

@dlowan,
Hanging in cafes is primo. Well, cafes and walking, cafes and walking, cafes and walking. I do like museums, and such, but not all the time every day. I like the streets better.

@ossobuco,
I do love the ocean. Lived by the Pacific for decades.. and I miss it. rather badly. But - most of my travel hasn't involved being by the ocean. I like land in general, and am something of a city addict.

Nothing against anyone else, but I think it would be terrific to explore a new city with Dag.

I'm an early riser, but the rest of the family likes to sleep in.

So when I'm traveling I like to get up early, put on my jogging gear and hit
the streets, or roads, or trails or whatever. Just last month I had the pleasure
of jogging along Mission Beach and also through Balboa Park in San Diego.

definitely checking out the local beaches, lakes, rivers, etc. I usually travel along the coast and I love going to the beach...it's really relaxing.

@HealthAngel,
Strictly a beach person, HealthAngel?
I like canoeing or kayaking if I'm near navigable water and there are rentals available.

@ehoh,
According to me I enjoy the whole trip and mostly I like to do shopping, eating and photography during traveling each time. Shopping and photography can make our travel trip memorable.
