What's your perfect hassle-free holiday?

Inspiration

"Travel is fatal to bigotry, prejudice, and narrow-mindedness - is something that Mark Twain once said that inspires me to seek out my fellow humans in my travels. It continually reminds me that we're all on this round planet together; might as well make the most of it!"
