Dream Vacation - Etsybloggers Carnival, July 16, 2010

Athena Workman is acting as host for this week's Carnival. Here are two hot topics to choose from:
1) It's summertime, a time to get away from it all. Do you have a dream vacation? Share details of your perfect getaway.


2) Expanding on the vacation theme, are there any special (or not-so-special) traditions that you and your family do while away on trips?

If I didn't have to worry about the money I spent (I guess that's a dream), I'd like to go to Europe. I've never been there. Maybe stay on a boat or on the shores of the Mediterranean. Go to Venice and Athens. My dream vacation would include the whole family, with spouses and my mom.

Actually, I took a dream vacation about 8 years ago. It was very much like vacations we took when I was a little girl... we went sailing. After my father died, big brother came up with the idea of gathering the family together and going for a sail. Everyone pooled their money, and we flew to the British Virgin Islands and BB captained a charter boat! I would love to experience that again.

Here's DH helping BB raise the main sail.

The ocean in the islands is such a beautiful blue, it's like heaven on earth. Here's a cute (big) sea turtle swimming around, when we were getting ready to jump in the water!

Swimming and sailing, that's a vacation ingrained into our family!

You took me away with you! Sounds wonderful, especially the sailing trip and swimming in that beautiful water. Miss you ...

The sailing trip sounds so awesome, Deb! A friend's family did this some years back, and it always sounded wonderful to me. To that end, it may be worth learning to sail. I'd love to know where you went. Did you sleep on board?
(Swimming with turtles is fun. They are such amazing creatures!)
