  1. My dream vacation would be Greece, Italy and France. My husband has had an opportunity to visit all three and I would love to share the experience with him as my tour guide!

  2. I would love to travel the countryside of Ireland (or maybe all of the British Isles) someday! But…I also think the train trip across Canada would be wonderful too.

  3. I’ve had a place in mind for quite a few years now. I would like to go to the place my parents went on their last winter vacation. We live in Wisconsin where the winters can get pretty darn cold, so they would leave for the winter, usually Dec – April. This trip they made plans to have their trip meet up with my mom?s sisters trip. They crossed paths in the picturesque Cabo San Lucas. They enjoyed each other?s company for 2 weeks and my mom spoke about it like it was the most amazing trip ever. Their pictures were absolutely amazing. No matter how bad of a photographer you were, you just couldn’t take a bad picture! Every photo was like I was looking at a postcard. The glass bottom boat tours, snorkeling, riding 4-wheelers in the sand dunes and riding horses where you couldn’t take vehicles. It’s the last big trip my mom went on. Two months after returning home she was diagnosed with lung cancer that had metastasized to her brain. She passed away just 13 months later. I want to go to the place that brought my mom such joy. She talked about the beauty in Cabo and I would love to see it as though I’m seeing it through my mom?s eyes. I believe you were pretty close to there when you were in Cozumel! I hope you had a wonderful time. (sorry for the long post)

  4. I would love to go to the Maldives. Everytime I see a picture and think “that looks so beautiful” it turns out to be the Maldives.

  397. My Dream Vacation would be to go to the Greek isles. My husband is 21 years older than me (he is 68). We have wanted to go for years and were saving. The huge manufacturing plant he worked for shut down 6 years ago. We just have not been able to replace the income, especially trying to pay for our son to go to college. I am so afraid that by the time we could afford it it will be to late for him to physically to do the trip. It, like those stamps, seems to be the perfect love destination. I want to hold his hand, share a kiss while overlooking the majestic sea from the cliffs that hold the most breathtaking white stone houses.
