Day 6: The dresses they wore in the 1910 photo shoot have been a long time favorite of mine.

Day 6 - Aleksei's sailor uniforms and 'Standart' caps. Sooo elegant. Same goes with OTMA' sailor uniforms during 1910's.

I'll go with the adorable sailor suits as well. The one's worn in those iconic video images aboard the Standart circa-1906

Day 6.- I adore the gowns that OTMA used in their formal photos of 1913, 1914 and 1916, honestly I can't decide among any of them. I also love the Big Pair's court dresses used in 1913. Well, I pick the fashion they wore from 1913 to 1916.

Catching up here....

Day Four :  GD Ernst Ludwig , "Uncle Ernie", is urched out by his adorable daughter Princess Elisabeth.

Day Five :  The goofy, big-eared Joy

Day Six:  The dresses worn by the little GDs , OTMA, in those photos in roughly 1902-3, in which they were seated on a little bench in front of a tree, and wearing big bonnets. I can't believe I'm answering this, but what the hey ;D Going with the flow.

I'm with Jen.

If the Crimea counts then I'll go with that again. If we are talking more a straight up vacation spot then I'll say Finland.

I compare Finland to a vacation destination, like going to Key West. Whereas the Crimea was more like a time share, like Miami for retired snow birds a few months out of the year. I don't think of them along the same lines.
