A Bit Of Me (2 of 2)


Hosted by Danielle at There's A Book
From her blog:
We all leave our “footprint” on the world, in one way or another. We each, individually, do something or are someone that makes the world a little better just by being here. I created this weekly meme to get to know the blogging community I love just a bit better. To know what makes them tick, outside of books, that is. Each week I will post a question to be answered in the following week’s “A Bit of Me(Me)”. Check back each Saturday to get the info for next week’s post and link up with your current post right here.
This Weeks Question: If you could travel anywhere in the world for 24 hours, where would you go?
(Logistically, this could be more than one place, so be creative!)
Read more:
  I have been lucky to have traveled to some faraway places.  When in high school (many, many) years ago, I traveled to Europe twice.  My first trip was to Spain and then we took a boat to Africa. Of course, while in Spain, we saw a bull fight, which parts of it were not pleasant to watch.  Africa, the country side was beautiful but then we took a side trip to the Casba and that left a lasting impression on me.  The poverty, the lack of housing and illness, mainly leprosy. 
  The next year, I traveled to Italy, which was beautiful and rich in heritage.  I went to the Vatican, the Coliseum, Pompeii, shopping in Florence and so much more. 
  We have also been to the Caribbean 4 times. 

So to answer this week's question, I would love to go back to Italy and visit but as a family vacation with our 2 sons.
But my favorite place to visit, we have been twice and we are hoping to go back after I recuperate fully, is Aruba.  The white sandy beaches, the turquoise waters, the tropical breeze, and the ideal place to relax and read.   We stay at the Aruba Radisson, which is a resort that one doesn't even have to leave because everything is right on the grounds.  For us, this is the perfect vacation, a little bit of heaven on earth.

Now you know a little bit more about me.  What about you?  Where would you love to be or travel to?

You picked some lovely spots! Today there hasn't been a place I've seen on these blogs that I wouldn't want to explore.

But here's what I chose:

Sorry I'm so late today!

Your places sound heavenly! I would love to go to each and everyone of them. Especially Italy. There's just something about those European countries that intrigues me. You are so lucky you were able to go at such a young age, how fun!

If I could I would travel for the rest of my life. Will play the lotto and pray for early retirement FOREVER. Of course must read during those getaway times. Loved Venice and hope one day to make it to Scotland. I don't play golf but just for the historical aspect. Maybe I can get my nomad hubby to wear a kilt ;P
