Every Mom Needs a Vacation (at least once in a lifetime)

In our attempt to get to know our contributors and readers more we have our monthly "About Us" question. So far we've discovered what you'd do with some extra cash, what your favorite blogs are to read (other than MD, of course), and what restaurants are the best.

This month we want to hear from all of you "What is your dream vacation?" Or better yet... "Where have you vacationed that you loved?"

Lately, two people I know have gone on the Alaskan Cruise. That is a definitely must on my list. I want to travel to exotic countries of the world like Thailand, India, Indonesia (to visit an exchange student/sister) China, Africa (anywhere), and The Netherlands (to see the tulips, my favorite flower).

One of my favorite places to visit is the Outer Banks, North Carolina. The beaches are beautiful and the water is warm. There is so much to do there, for kids and adults. We stay down close to the Hatteras Lighthouse in Avon, NC.
I also really loved my European adventure during college, especially Nice, France and Venice, Italy.
I can't wait until we can take a Caribbean cruise though. I've been wanting to go forever!

Oh the places I would go! I don't think I could pin point just one place. But I definitely have some favorite vacations... my honeymoon was a blast in Mexico/San Diego, a scuba diving trip to the Netherlands Antilles (Aruba, Curcao, Bonaire), our first little family vacation to Nauvoo, and a trip to a lake house with friends in Northern WI! I would love to take Scott to the Holy Land, and I've always wanted to go to Europe (specifically France, Italy, and Spain).

My dream vacation would be on a beautiful beach, white sand, blue water, and NOTHING to do but sit there.

We love to travel in our family and I've really liked our last vacation where we drove up the Oregon coast and went up to Vancouver. We also have loved the South (Savannah, Charleston) and Ireland is one of my favorites. There are so many places I would love to go, but if I could choose one place it would definitely be Italy. Maybe it just sounds even better lately because of all the yummy food.

I would love to take a trip with just the husband to Greece. It's so pretty in pictures. I would love to stay in one of those white houses on the sea. I want to walk around and take pictures of buildings and people. I think it would be so different and romantic.

I recently made a list of vacations I want to go on with my husband...Prague, Maui, and Mexico all top my list. We'd also like to take each other back to where we served missions: Argentina and Italy (you're welcome to come along too Bridget and Kara!)

We recently did Disney World and Sea World with the kids and it was a blast! I highly recommend it!

MEXICO!! Brian and I just got back not too long ago and it was the best! We did a all-inclusive package so we didn't have to worry about meals, activities, or driving! I agree about Greece, it does look SO pretty!

I've heard about how much fun they are, how much you get to see, and how cost effective they are. I would either try to leave my kids behind for a relaxing vacation or bring a nanny (one of my sisters?) along for a less stressful family vacation

The list could go on forever there are so many places I would love to vacation at, Greece is a good one: beaches, history, good food, romance. My favorite place i have vacationed is Kuaui, Hawaii. Went there for my honeymoon and 2nd aniversary and I loved it! Not as touristy as the other islands and soooo beautiful!!!

Chalece said...

I would love to go to Spain, Italy, and France. I also have never been to Hawaii. I have also heard that an Alaskan cruise is awesome, that would be great. I would like to go on a cruise, or maybe several. :)

My dream vacation would probably be to go to Hawaii, swim in the ocean, sit on the beach, then go swim with dolphins.

We love travelling and I was lucky enough to come from a family that took us to a lot of fun places. Fiji was my all time favorite. But I love Europe too and would love to go back and spend more time there. I've always wanted to go to Austrailia or take a safari type trip! I'm not sure I'd really like it as much as I think I would but it always sounded neat.
Cruises are the BEST!
