    I voted Europe, because my favourite holiday destination is my home. I like locking the gates and having to deal with nobody at all for as long as my holiday lasts.

    i'm sure a central america location is fine when it's just a tourist area, just like mexico (tourist traps are ran by the cartels). I'd still rather go someplace else. Kidnappings are big. A woman i know had a buddy who went off on his own down there looking for drugs and ended up dead. There was no justice for his death.

    Without a different SIM card, your phone might not work in Canada, either.
    Some US carriers have "international travel" plans that you can expect to pay
    a fee for (and expect higher rates on calls), while others do not.

    At least, this was true as recently as 2017.

    Yeah they are. i used to smoke cigars and we had a great cigar shop in my home town. they let us try some 'good ones' out. Not super expensive ones. they
    were nothing special. i think YEARS ago, they were the good stuff.

    i think most of this is in people's heads. OHHH i'm having a cuban cigar!

    like i said before, it might be all in your head.

    for decades, cigar experts have said a lot of cuban cigars have dropped in quality for several reasons. I think part of it is over manufacturing of cigars and planting tobacco in poor areas. for some time they dropped some traditional methods in their processes so they can output more and do it a lot cheaper. There's even been issues apparently with overfilling of cigars.

    I'm not a cigar expert;and i've quit smoking everything since i was 28, but I've heard and read about cuban cigar issues for quite some time.

    I used to smoke cigars a lot more than I do now. I think it's been a couple years at least since I've had one.

    Generally I'll grab a half dozen or so from the cigar shop if I'm going up nort' for a week, but I haven't spent more than a weekend at the cottage the last couple years.

    Hopefully this summer that will change.

    Interesting. I don't normally smoke. Throat cancer a couple years ago solved my 50 year smoking habit. I STILL get a few smaller cigars when I go to Cuba each year, so I can have a 'smoke' with my Ron (rum) down by the ocean in the evening. Strange huh?

    I'm more of a pipe smoker, used to live next to a pub jokingly referred

    https://www.sfchronicle.com/food/article/The-story-of-the-Albany-pub-where-time-stands-12917018.php

    I still have a collection of a dozen pipes, another 2 dozen that
    belonged to my father that I need to put on eBay, and a tupperware
    container full of tobaccos. I don't like smoking around the kids but now
    that I'm working from home I can slip out and have a bowl occasionally.
