Ten on Tuesday – Travel

Posted on September 28th, 2011 by Jean

1. What is your dream vacation?
At this point in my life, it would have to be a family trip to Disneyland.
 

 
2. What has been your favorite trip so far in your life?
I love traveling with my sister. She always has the best ideas. My favorite would be the time we stayed at Paris Hotel in Las Vegas to play tourists, visiting the Star Trek exhibit at the Hilton, enjoying a comedy show, grabbing a quick bite at P.F. Chang’s, breakfast of sweet or savory crepes or fresh sourdough bread from one of Paris’ bakeries.
 

 
3. If you and one of your best friends could go anywhere in the world for one week, where would it be and why?
I’m slightly infatuated by Chicago right now. As a reality t.v. fan, Giuliana & Bill’s episodes praising what a great city Chicago is has left me with a craving to explore what it has to offer.
 

 
4. Have you ever booked a trip using an online deal? How did it go?
I’ve purchased airline tickets, booked hotels, bought amusement park tickets, and rented cars, but never purchased a whole deal. It always goes well.
 

 
5. What’s your favorite thing to do while you’re on vacation?
I love to shop and to eat, but eating wins out by just a bit.
 

 
6. Have you ever missed an opportunity to take a trip that you regret?
I can’t say that I have, thankfully.
 
7. You travel far away from home and get stranded with no way to buy anything, what’s the one thing you can’t live without?
My camera would be the one thing so I could at least capture memories.
 
8. What’s one of your favorite traveling memories?
I have so many, it’s difficult to choose. Probably a very recent memory of San Diego, sharing ice cream cones with my daughters.
 

 
9. All included resort or backpacking? Why?
All included resort. I’m not big on outdoor activities.
 
10. Are you more of a lie on the beach kind of person on vacation, or do you prefer to see the sights?I’d prefer to see the sights. In my youth, sure, I would soak up the rays. But now I want to get out and experience my destination.

  1. Jean has been blogging! Yay! I was reading through the questions and of course, my own answers came to mind. #9 made me snort–gee, all-inclusive, eat and drink fest where people cater to my every need or lugging a heavy pack full of gear through the rugged, sweaty, mosquito infested outdoors. Let me think on that one a while.

    Thanks Beth! I had a long dry spell, but it feels good to be back. I know, I can’t get into the whole backpacking thing either. LOL!

  2. Your trips look so exciting!

    My dream trip would be to backpack through Europe. Alone.

    But for now, I’ll settle for the new Legoland in Florida at the end of October.

    My camera is the most important item to take on a trip.

    My travel regret is that I visited a friend twice in Chicago and not once did I go to Oak Park (Frank Lloyd Wright’s home).

    Glad you are back!

    Ooooh, Legoland! That’ll be fun, Tammy! We’ve been meaning to try the one in California.
    Thanks for the warm welcome back. 🙂

  3. I SO want to take my kid to Disney World … it’s a dream trip for me too. Also, I have a minor obsession with Giuliana & Bill as well and it totally makes me want to visit Chicago. I’ve never been there and it’s reasonable driving distance for me, so it’s on my short list now.

    Also, all-inclusive for sure! Your list rocks 🙂

    Angie, I’m so glad it isn’t just me who is obsessed with Giuliana, Bill and Chicago! Can’t wait to hear of your visit there because I know you will go! Gotta track down the Mama Dipandi restaurant.
    Thanks, Angie!

  4. I totally agree with the eating part, of course. I am missing out on a trip to Chicago this month.. which is a real kick in the rear. 🙁

    Oh, Kim! I’m sorry you are missing out on Chicago. That’s a real bummer.

  5. I hade to resubcribe to your blog. I didn’t realize you had been blogging so much lately.

    I’m excited. 🙂

    I think it’s great to get out and explore things too. Lately, my boyfriend and I have been trying to book more weekend trips for exploring and learning new things.

    We love Living Social and Groupon deals! We’re just booked a jet ski deal and we are going to take a 6 hour concealed weapons permit class and both get weapons. lol… me a pistol packin’ mama! I’m excited about that for some reason. I was always so afraid of guns. I know my son will be proud of me he is an avid gun collecter being a Marine and all. So I’m going to ask him which gun I should purchase. I already know his answer…”Mom, if you’re gonna get a gun, you gotta get one that does the job!” lol. He’s gonna say a glock I know it.

    I’m trying to get back into the swing of things. Thanks Sherri!
    I signed up for Living Social and Groupon deals for Henderson and Las Vegas, but so far haven’t bought anything. It’s so exciting you have booked a jet ski deal and concealed weapons class! Awesome! I had my license, but I think I have let it lapse. I carry a Smith & Wesson 38 revolver with a laser in the grip, but yes, Glocks are the best! Get one!
