What Is Your Dream Destination?

If money were no object, where would you travel to right now?



This is a hard one for me because I can easily fill up a few pages with places I’d love to visit around the world. But if I won the lottery, I’d pack my bags faster than you can say “where are you going?”, and be on the next flight to Fiji.

Yes, Fiji. Just look at this place:

This. Is. Paradise.

*sigh*

I first discovered Fiji when I was putting together an itinerary for a trip around the world in one of my tourism courses in university. It’s been my dream destination ever since.

What is yours?

Have a lovely weekend, everyone!

  1. Oh my, that truly looks like paradise!
    I can see why Fiji is your dream destination.
    I have never been there but now 'I have it on my bucket list'
    The one place I would love most to see is Italy, my daughter and son-in-law are going there in Sept.
    Wish I was going too but will be taking care of Rose while they are there :)

    Have a great and happy weekend.

    1. Oh Margie, Italy is another dream destination for me! Imagine all the gorgeous things you'll see and experience if you go? I'd love to tour many places in Europe. All I need is A LOT of money!

  2. Years ago I had a friend who went to Fiji to windsurf and a bloodless revolution occurred. Her hosts treated her royally because she had to stay an extra week until normal flights resumed. The people may not put up with an unjust government, but they are a gentle, friendly people. Yes, perhaps it is paradise.

    1. What a great story! How wonderful that their only resentment was to an unjust government. Yes, perhaps it truly is paradise.

  3. Well if I could I would choose anywhere with an ocean...lol, but in reality because of agoraphobia, I'd give the free travel to my son

    1. I'm sure he would be thrilled, too! Although that's too bad, Lorraine. I know what agoraphobia is, and it's tough.

  16. Believe it or not, my fantasy is to travel to the high Canadian Arctic. I feel that I have to see it now, before it changes. But those trips are so expensive, I'm probably never going to do it. I've spent time in the north but not way up at the Arctic circle.

    1. That would be an incredible trip! And something that for me, too, will never happen. Not unless I win a big lottery!
