Goa is crowded as hell (especially when i went in December) - Well most of India is as you would expect but Goa is crowded with want to be hippy rich people. There is still a decent party scene (not sure if your into your trance and mushrooms and drum playing sessions on the beach) but it is defiantly worth checking out. I'm guessing for a wedding you will be in a nice resort. Try the street food places in North Goa its awesome.

I heard the nightlife is pretty good. I never thought I'd see the day that I'd agree to go to India lol

why you are asking me? i want to go to goa myself.

I have heard when you go to Goa you forget Bali.

PS. learn your Portuguese before you go to Goa, it might come in handy.

you will find a lot of anglo indians in Goa , specially the elderly, they are the 3rd /4th generation brits who never ended up going back or the ones who came from portugal.

Portugese is not the official lingo any more.

I found a lot of Indians in Barcelona. You want to know where they are all working? In those souvenir gift shops - you know like all those Asian $2 shops we have here? That's where they all were working. I actually bought 2 FC Barcelona Jerseys from there and had the name customised on the back it. Dirt cheap and it looks like the real thing - even had the Nike authentication on it lol.

Been to Europe, the US and the Middle East.

It's really hard to choose just one place. Everything has something for me that I love, depending on my mood I guess.

Overall: Athens, Greece. It has everything. History, transport, food, culture, beaches, cheap prices, friendliness, English-speaking. So much better than some of the overrated islands like Mykonos. Mykonos was overpriced, worst transport, donkeys everywhere and too many stupid-ass tourists looking for a quick root. The Mediterranean region overall is my favourite place to visit. Lebanon, Turkey and Greece were some of my favourite places to visit.

Special mentions: Amsterdam, Ibiza, Vegas. Ibiza one of my favourite places in the world to visit for sure.

Least favourite: Brussels was very boring for me. Their main square was a carbon copy of the Marienplatz in Munich. Nothing to do except visit the Tin Tin Museum. Their waffles highly overrated too. The top half of Italy overall wasn't very satisfying for me either. Out of Rome, Venice, Florence, Pisa - Milan was my favourite city in Italy. There's so much to do in Italy, but I wasn't really moved by the place. Maybe Sicily will be more interesting for me to visit...

Most friendly/helpful: Dubai. Believe it. Such a contrast to places like Paris when you get served in a restaurant.
Thanks Btrain

Fav: Greek Islands

Least fav: Probably L.A. Not that I didn't have a good time, just enjoyed the least out of all places I've been.

What's a holiday?
A holiday is a day set aside by custom or by law on which normal activities, especially business or work, are suspended or reduced. Generally, holidays are intended to allow individuals to celebrate or commemorate an event or tradition of cultural or religious significance. Holidays may be designated by governments, religious institutions, or other groups or organizations. The degree to which normal activities are reduced by a holiday may depend on local laws, customs, the type of job being held or even personal choices.

The concept of holidays has most often originated in connection with religious observances. The intention of a holiday was typically to allow individuals to tend to religious duties associated with important dates on the calendar. In most modern societies, however, holidays serve as much of a recreational function as any other weekend days or activities.

In many societies there are important distinctions between holidays designated by governments and holidays designated by religious institutions. For example, in many predominantly Christian nations, government-designed holidays may center on Christian holidays, though non-Christians may instead observe religious holidays associated with their faith. In some cases, a holiday may only be nominally observed. For example, many Jews in the Americas and Europe treat the relatively minor Jewish holiday of Hanukkah as a "working holiday", changing very little of their daily routines for this day.

The word "holiday" has some variance in meaning across different locales. In the United States the word refers to widely observed days of rest and recreation, whereas in the U.K. and many Commonwealth nations including Canada, the word refers to any extended period of recreation. It is this first, more restricted sense of the word that concerns this article.
