Congratulations!!!!

How awesome! Cannot wait to hear all about it. Friends of ours just returned home from Israel, Egypt and Turkey and had the time of their lives.

That shows contentment! I definitely cannot say I love where I am right now and cannot wait to move to Europe. Not everyone loves to travel and that is just fine!

I've always wanted to visit the northeast part of the U.S. Also the Great Lakes region. Would love to see the Florida Keys someday, too. There are so many great things to see in our country I'll probably never make it out of the borders. And that's...okay! Heck, there's so many neat places to see here in my area!

Places to visit

I'd love to see Ireland, especially County Cavan where my ancestors came from before moving to the United States.

I'd also love to see more of Italy. I've been to Rome (for two weeks) and Naples (for one week). I yearn to see all of Italy.

I've never been to New England and would like to see it before I die.

However, my finances and the hassle at the airport prevents these travel dreams from ever becoming true.

AnnieDrews, if you ever go to the Great Lakes region, I can help you make plans for the WI, upper MI and Lake Superior and Lake Michigan areas. I'm not a travel agent, I just live here. My strengths would be to tell you all the one of a kind places, fresh water (15,000) lakes, ferries across MI, land formations left by the glacier, MI waterfalls, annual festivals in Bayfield, Milwaukee and fishboils and fish fries throughout the state, and cheese factories, and water parks and tourist attractions if you like that too.

CharlieD, when we went to Georgia, St Simons Island and Jekyll Island, there were places (homes, rental cottages) to rent, we were there over Christmas week-off season. You might find some that are reasonable to afford. Off season runs until April or May. The beaches were wonderful, almost no one else there, beautiful.
Also, maybe look at time-share condos available by the week in locations you are interested in (look at owners renting out, and condo managers looking to sell, call realtors in the area--get on their mailing lists or email lists). <$100 per night with all the amenities for a week.

If I could only pick one place though it would be Tahiti.
GB, Tahiti was always first on my list too. In fact when I was raising my sons, and they'd get on my nerves, I'd always say "if you two don't shape up, "I'm running away to Tahiti". Fast forward to four years ago when I met Steve, who is now my husband. He had been all over the world and asked me where in the world was at the top of my list. I said, that's easy....Tahiti.
His response was, pack your bags. OMG.......what would my grown sons think? I hardly knew this man, and they hadn't even met him! I went to the post office to get the first passport in my life, and needed my older son's address for my next of kin. Not knowing his exact address off hand, I called and asked him for it. "Why are you getting a passport Mom?" You guessed it, my answer was "because I'm running away to Tahiti".
The islands of Tahiti are absolutely magical GB. I wish with all my heart you will be able to visit one day. The Paul Gauguin cruise ship is the ideal way to see them.

In the last four years we have visited over 30 countries, but Tahiti is first in my heart.
