Where in the world is Dave? Vacation ideas

Delicious discussion going on at Scripting News in response to Dave asking for ideas about places to spend a long summer break. Great ideas and a wonderful kick off to dreaming (I will be here in the US, working away. maybe taking a week at the beach if I’m lucky–on the other hand, I live 40 miles from Santa Cruz and went to the beach twice this past weekend, so I’m not complaining.)
