10 Dream Vacations

Time for a little Ten on Tuesday... this week's topic is 10 Dream Vacations

1. Australia ~ Koala bears, up close and in their natural habitat.  An outback adventure...  Plus, I hear their Autumn season is beautiful!

2. Alaska ~ An Alaskan cruise... I want to get close to the glaciers and wildlife.

3. Africa ~ An African Safari... enough said.

4. Egypt ~ Pyramids, the Great Sphinx, the Valley of the Kings, the Roman Amphitheatre, the Nile River, the Desert... I want to see it all!

5. Hawaii ~ I'm sure this one is on most people's dream vacation list.  I'm no different... I want to experience Island life, visit the sea cliffs, see a volcano errupt and maybe even catch an NFL Pro Bowl game!

6. Scotland ~ Take me on a search for Nessie!

8. Las Vegas - Mostly to visit/volunteer at Best Friends, with a little casino action and some Cirque du Soleil shows thrown in for good measure.  Maybe even to catch a NASCAR race out there... 

9. Ireland ~ I am part Irish and would love to visit the island someday... the landscapes, ancient legends, culture, food...

10. Greece ~ "The Greek Islands" just sounds so enchanting, plus there's all of that mythology and the amazing ancient architecture...

I was in Vegas last month and while I am not a casino gal, I loved seeing O. I picked it, because it is one of the shows that will never tour. It was amazing though I probably shouldn't have sprung for the wet seats, though being super close to the action was great!

If you go to Ireland, be sure to kiss the Blarney Stone!

We also saw "O" in Vegas and it was absolutely amazing. The hubby and I aren't big gamblers, so we played the cheap slot machines. ; ) The rest of the time was spent seeing the sights and eating at the awesome restaurants.

Did you see the episode of Amazing Race a couple of weeks ago, where they went to the ice hotel? Man, I covet that floor length coat the lady at that stop was wearing. Everyone else notices scenery and whatnot, but I notice coats, too!

I'm not a vacation dreamer any more. I'm happy in my little corner of the world. But I hope you get to at least one or 2 of the places on your list!

Oh, I forgot Australia and Egypt! I'd love to go to Australia right now and look forward to summer instead of winter.
