I definitely plan to return to Pucallpa, Peru next summer. But maybe, if finances allow, I'll go to Florida to visit one or two of my sisters over Christmas break. But they just gave us a week off this year.

We're going to visit Samana in the Dominican Republic in the spring, we'll be staying at Bahia Principe Cayo Levantado which is the only resort on an offshore island. I'm looking forward to sun, nice snorkelling and being pampered!

Can't wait - but I've got to perk up my workouts to be in shape for all the snorkelling etc...

In September, I am going on a belated but obligatory "I am done with uni, I am going to travel Europe for four months" trip. Hitting Iceland first for five days, then basing myself out of the UK with trips planned to France, Netherlands, and possibly Germany and Switzerland as well.

To Israel for 2 months via a 10 day cruise from FL to LON, then fly to Tel Aviv. A month in Jerusalem, a month in Netanyyah on the coast, then fly home with 4 days in Rome and Naples on the way. It will be grand and I'll blog about it here:

Just starting to formulate my summer plans. I plan to go to a couple of family get togethers in Oregon and Washington. Hopefully I will be able to get to Nebraska this year and meet family that I have heard about but not met before. Going to where my Mom was born in 1905 and where my Dad's family lived for over 20 years and my aunts and uncles were born.
Also, going to spend some time in the Tennessee area where my friend lives.

In the process of getting my passport renewed as it will take about six weeks to get it back once the paperwork is turned in.

This Friday (Good Friday), I am going with my daughter, 86 year old mother and my sister to a cottage in the Overberg mountains near Cape Town South Africa (I live in South Africa but in Johannesburg). It is a thatch cottage looking out over fields and hills with an old converted coach house. And it is ours. Me and my sister bought it this December for us and our mother (they all live in Cape Town and it is an hour away). This will be the first time that I actually stay there and see it. So excited. It is in the hills but only 30 minutes drive from a beach - Arniston which is a beautiful seaside village of fishermans cottages.

Hi everyone ! I live in Brisbane, Australia and for Easter we're taking my mother-in-law to a house that we rented in the hills north of the city. I haven't been before, but apparently there's some beautiful hiking to be done there, lots of waterfalls and subtropical forests. The town is called Montville and there are some good restaurants there as well. Yay, can't wait !

My next trip planned is to Washington D.C. in May. This will be the second time I have been there. I'm hoping to get to go inside Ford's Theatre this time since I didn't get to last time. In June I plan to go to Grandfather Mountain in North Carolina for my birthday and my anniversary to my husband. Then in September I am going back to Washington state and Oregon for the second time. I'm also hoping to go to Breaks Interstate Park in Virginia in September as well.

MEMEQ2. I have been to Myrtle Beach before and there are tons to do. There are a lot of shops, a couple malls and the boardwalks are great to check out. There is a margaritaville and a zoo. Parasailing, zip lining, helicopter rides, seashell island and dolphin tours. Planet Hollywood and Hard Rock Cafe are some great places to eat.

About a week, My daughter has taken a weeks holiday from work. We need to average 700km (300miles) per day. If i was on my own I would travel slower. I haven't done this road trip but I have been to by air and train. My daughter has done it 4 or 5 times with her husband. I have arthritis and need to take breaks about every hour.

To me, a very exciting one.... My sister and I have bought a small cottage in an area called the Overberg in Western Cape South Africa. It is a heritage thatch roof cottage in a small village called Napier with views of mountains and fields. I haven't seen it except in pictures (it was all a rush as there were other offers) and in March I am driving down to go and stay in my very own holiday cottage for the first time....

Booked a New England/Canadian cruise for Sept/Oct to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary which is in July. We're going in the fall to wait for the fall foliage. I'm going to use this cruise as a big motivator for my weight loss goals this year.

Got a phone call yesterday from my 85 year old traveling companion. She was leaving the doctor's office after learning that her CAT scan showed no cancer! Suddenly I could exhale. She had ovarian cancer 3 years ago and her CA125 results had been high.

This means we will be booking that much anticipated trip to Russia for next year!

Going back to Europe late summer of 2013. So far we know we'd like to see Salzburg, Austria and explore more of Germany. I'd also like to return to Romania...very beautiful countryside there!

I realize I need at least two big trips a year....and will continue as long as our money and our health hold out. We are still going to Bulgaria, Serbia and Romania the end of the month, and now, we are heading to INDIA for 17 days in February!

I find that traveling is so enriching, not only socially and culturally, but on a very deep spiritual level. I only wish I had started this years ago. Since I didn't, and there are so many places on my bucket list, we really have to keep healthy so I can see them all!

Just a few weeks away from taking our annual road trip from Connecticut to Minnesota (to visit my daughter).......Always plan different stops and varied routes --- and make it 3 days each way so there are lots of discoveries along the way.......Historic stops, antiquing, train watching.....even a typical tourist stop or two.......This year we're planning a visit to the American Pickers antique shop in LeClaire, Iowa as well as a visit to the nearby John Deer Museum in nearby Rock Island, Illinois on our way out. Our return trip will include Milwaukee, Wisconsin and the Harley Davidson Museum as well as an overnite in Zanesville, Ohio to visit some old favotite pottery places.......During the past several years our stops have included overnites in places as diverse as Macinac Island and Chicago, Illinois and a special stop at the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio.........No such thing as "fly over" country to us...............Just love a road trip ! emoticon

DH and I are planning a trip in August. Going from Atlanta to
Wisconsin (his 55th class reunion) heading N to upper Michigan
then down to Dearborn, Michigan over the Canadian border and up to
Quebec. Into Maine hit the water at Bar Harbor. Try to hit the highlights
in all the New England States (did Boston many yrs ago). Looks like about 3-4
weeks on the road.

I want to go into NYC, but DH is leary. DD suggested staying in Stamford, CT
and take the train into the city. Any feedback on NYC would be appreciated.

I am a Pet and Home Sitter so I am on a vacation 365 days a year. I am going to Brisbane (Interstate) Queensland in July for one month, then Flowerdale,(a small farm) Tasmania in October for 3 weeks, I will travel across Bass Strait on the Ferry so I can bring my car along with me, then 4 months in Atherton Queensland near Cairns in North Queensland. My other sits are all near beaches and I have views of the City of Melbourne across the Bay (Port Philip Bay) at the moment. Not beach weather but beautiful to see the changing vista of the bay and skyline. Out side the window I can enjoy the colourful Lorikeets eating from the feeders, as well as the Magpies waiting and taking food from our fingers.
Soon I will be rounding up chooks and collecting their bounty along with 2 gorgeous kelpies and a cat.
I had a wonderful 4 weeks in Ballarat when the weather was still OK but changing! Ballarat is a tourist destination and 1 day does no justice to this beautiful city, I got to walk daily with a delightful choc. lab named Chester around Lake Wendouree (6.5 klms) did that once other walks near this attractive place. Enjoyed my soy cappucinos at a great little cafe Racers
(cyclists frequent this hot spot).
Does anyone else live like me? So far I have absolutely loved it all especially the pets and the owners who have spoilt me no end. I am their friend even went to one owner's son's 21st!


Love your life it's all that you have so make the most of it. Live everyday as if it is your last one.

We leave in two weeks for our first river cruise. Starting in Vienna, and will travel to Amsterdam. Then we'll leave the cruise and head to Belgium for four days to visit with friends.

In November, however, we are heading to CUBA!

So loving reading of all these wonderful places and holidays and am so looking forward to travelling again. I used to be a real gypsy, but ill health has kept me at home the last few years.

I have a new lease on life and getting my passport renewed this week. So many places I want to go.

Last holiday was in Australia. Loved it especially from Brisbane up to Noosa.

Just got home after spending a week in Salt Lake City and Evanston, Wyoming. Loved it! So much to do compared to my rural Arkansas home. We went to see Zorro, The Musical, toured the sights at Temple Square, shopped and ate like queens, played tourist at the This Is The Place Monument, Pony Express Monument and Visitor's Center. Impressive!

For us, this is our last big "HOORAAA" for the east coast. Next year we'll be taking small trips here and there up and down the east coast but nothing big because then next winter we move back to Alaska. That'll be a month long drive from the east back up to Washington state and then we'll take the ferry back up. That in itself will be a wonderful vacation!

In northern Italy I absolutely love Torino. I enjoyed it more than Milan, Venice or Verona. There are a number of Savoy palaces that you can visit, including my favorite: Castello di Rivoli, which has been converted into an AMAZING contemporary art museum. Nearby you can also visit Alba (home of Nutella!) and Asti (home of the sparkling wine Moscato d'Asti!).

Stats: Female, 5'4", 28 years old.

Goal: From 152 (07/24/2011) to 125 by December, 2011. DONE! December 4th weighed in at 124. In 2012 I've been maintaining around 122, which is a thirty pound loss. My BMI has gone from 26.1 to 20.9 since following the Spark plan!
