We'll Always Have Paris

I barely caught what they were saying on the TV, but basically I heard someone say that EVERYONE wants to go to Paris. Now I can tell you with 100% honesty that I've never had any inkling to go to Paris. I wouldn't even say it's on my top ten places I'd like to visit list. So sorry folks on TV, not EVERYONE wants to go to Paris.

One of the places I've always dreamed of going is Australia. I hope that someday I'll be able to travel there with my man. One of our other "dream" places to visit together is Atlantis. Ahhh, I can just dream of basking in the sun. Or how about Little Palm Island? Sounds peaceful to me!

So where would your dream vacation take place? Where have you been that has been completely wonderful and you would like to go back? Talk to me!

My hubby & I are right there with you on Paris. Have no desire to go there. I would however like to go to Australia & Greece.

We've been to Paradise Island twice & really like it although it has built up a lot over the past few years.

Yeah, I'm with you on not wanting to go to Paris. Not interested in the least.

My dream is to go to Africa... it always has been. One day soon, I hope!

My other dream is to go to Fiji and surf Cloudbreak. Silly, really, because I don't even surf:) But ever since I saw it on the movie Endless Summer (a surfing classic), I've been dying to go!

I don't wanna go to Paris either!!! hmmm, wonder where those 'people on tv' get their info? Geez.

Right now, I want to go to Haiti. And I would like to go to Korea some day....but actually, you asked, where have I been that was completely wonderful.....I'd have to say the Bahamas and Yellowstone. Amazing, both places. God's creativity is evident!

I would love to visit Europe someday purely for my own pleasure ... but for more significant reasons these places are also on my list:

-Sudan (the country of my son's heritage)
-Haiti (I want our whole family to go back one day to where our boys are spending the first months of their life)
-Bonaire/Curacao (we have wonderful friends there and it looks like such a beautiful place)
-Cuenca, Ecuador (we have friends there and I've not been back in 15 years)
-Easter Island (considered part of Chile but most mainlanders never get a chance to visit)

And the list could go on ... I love to travel! If only I had the $$$!! :)

Not Paris. I like you Australia also Greece, Africa, and China. But right not I am dreaming of going to Haiti to pick up my girls!

No desire for Paris, here, either!

We went on our first "water" vacation last year to Destin and LOVED it. Want to go back REALLY BAD.

Of course, I want to go to Haiti.

There are places in the states that I've never seen. Like, the great lakes area, and Colorado, and the Grand Canyon, and Washington DC and Jamestown.

I would like to visit NYC around the holidays.

As for other countries, I'm pretty much a homebody. I would like to explore Ireland and England, and maybe a Mediterranean Cruise, someday :~)

Your Brad Pitt lookalike comment cracked me up! :)

When we were stationed in England we drove to France to take the kids to Euro Disney. We took a boat tour down the river and past the Eiffel tower and Notre Dame. It was nice but I don't know if I would specifically plan a vacation for France from the U.S.

My kids all want to go to Australia. I wouldn't mind going back to Japan (We were stationed in Okinawa and too the kids to Tokyo Disney)and having the kids climb Mount Fuji.

A hot, white sand beach on a desserted island sounds good right now. Maybe an island especially reserved for those who are stressed out due to adoptions?

Thanks for stopping by earlier. I've been thinking and praying for you still.

My dream vacation: a string of Bed and Breakfasts over the Irish countryside. Just me and the hubby, alone for 10 glorious days of wandering and relaxing. Maybe for our 25th anniversary?! If we're not locked up in straight jackets by then :)

I personally have not desire to go to Paris and I know the hubby doesn't either. I would love to go to the land down under and Africa. My dream is to go to devils pool/ Victoria Falls and swim. Hubby will not go with me and told me to find someone else. SO.....Stephanie would you like to come with me? We may be a couple of old haggered women by the time we have the money to get there but we can say we went. :o) Or we can go to Great America like we use to and have a good time......oh the good ole days!! What great memories I have with you and Jeff. Thanks!!!

I have been to Maui and the Florida Keys. Maui was so romantic and lovely. My hubby and I would love to go back again. I would also love to see Australia, Africa, maybe Jamaica?
