    I have not done a lot traveling in the past. I plan to make this year the year that I travel, it has always been my dream to go to Paris, France. I don't know if I will make it there this year but I can plan for next year to go to Paris but I can make one of the other trips I would like to make is to the islands for a short visit.

    I don't do water trips, the cruises look like so much fun, but I think I would not be able to relax to enjoy the trip for fear of the water. I have been on a boat but it was close to the shore and not very large.

    I would serioously LOVE to go on any kind of a vacation cruise ! ! My daughter went on a cruise ship this summer, and she went up to Alaska and back. the scenery that she photographed was magnificent, and she also went river rafting and zip-lining.
    I am not into doing all of those things, but i would dearly love going on one of the 3-day cruises that sail down the coast of Florida and to the Bahamas and back. I used to get the sales ads from cruises.com; but finally I realized that I was never going to be able to afford a vacation like that, so I unsubscribed from the sales ads.
    I am going to go and viisit my friend who lives in Southern Idaho. We were good friends when we both lived in northern Idaho, and then I moved out here after Bobby and I got married.
    She has a little motor home, and she bought my kayak when we moved; so she has both of the ones we used to take kayaking, and we are planning to go to one of the nearby lakes and camp, maybe swim, and go kayaking together. It will be mid-May when I go, so nice and warm weather by then.
    It has been several years since I have been back to Idaho, and I am really looking forward to seeing my friend, Pat.

    I think we're mostly sticking around California... Weekends in San Diego, or maybe San Francisco... Next year, however, I'm going to Thailand for 8 weeks to volunteer... So that's kind of where my travel focus is... and probably where my money will go!

    I use to live in San Jose, Ca., it has been a more than 10yrs now. I am ready for a quick visit to San Francisco this spring would be nice.

    Thailand should be nice, how long will it take you to get there?

    Normally we go to either Florida or Cuba this time of year, to get away from the cold but this year we are staying home because we hope to visit Quebec in the summer or early fall. I would love to head to the east coast of Canada too once we have seen Quebec but my hubby isn't a good traveler in the car, so we will have to see about that.

    Hi Kevin! I have been using Thailand as my home base for about 7 years and I am sure you will have a great time here!

    Hi Pat!
    This year I plan to make a little trip to Siem Reap, Cambodia to visit the Ankgor Wat ruins. It has always been on my bucket list and I should be able to go in June. Also, I may take my first cruise as a guest (hope so) and I am looking forward to that.
