1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    could be seaside, snow, country houses but you must come back repeatedly (or plan to) for it to be a favorite.

    I would have to say the Mediterranean. I can't narrow it down to just one spot. The laid back atmosphere of Italy and Southern France has always attracted me. Great food, and style is always a plus.

    Hawaii. I go every year for about 4 days just to relax on the beach. Eventually I want to buy a condo down there. Its really convenient from LAX.

    The Caesar Augustus Hotel on Capri is by far my favorite.

    My cousins live in Monte di Procida, and when visiting during the summer we always spend a few days in Capri.

    Well the next time you go to Capri check out the Caesar Augustus Hotel...it is a completely renovated chateau in this little hill top village. Right on the edge of a hill 1000ft up from bay. The views are unbelievable The infinity pool is awesome and very few people know about it so it is never very crowded in the summer.

    My biggest complaint with places like St. Tropez and Monte Carlo is all the tourists...driving in any of those places is just a nightmare it is all traffic...the Caesar Augustus Hotel is very secluded.

    ^^^ Capri is also very congested with tourists. As I recall. Anacapri isn't as bad. Villa San Michele is one of my favorite places in the island.

    Yes Capri is pretty bad...I took the ferry from Naples once during the summer and it was horrible. The reason I like the Caesar Augustus Hotel is that it is in Anacapri which does not get bombarded with tourists.

    ^^ That looks idyllic and a perfect place to rusticate. As far as islands go, my next trip would be the Andaman islands. I almost made it to the Maldives when I visited south India.

    North Sentinel Island is the most unspoilt island in the area. Like nothing else in the world...
