  1. If money were no object I’d go on an extended journey around the world.

  2. beth b says:

    If time and money were of no matter, I’d travel throughout Europe — starting with Ireland and the UK and moving onto the continent making my way here and there — ending up in the city of Prague in the Czech Republic (my heritage).

    Maybe take 6 months or more — I guess whatever it would take to travel leisurely.

  3. Laurel Regan says:

    Not a US resident, but I can still comment, right?! My dream destination these days is Italy. I would love to visit the village where my mom was born and raised, then spend another couple of months traveling around the country. Definitely a dream!

  4. Jeanine says:

    I used to think my dream vacation would be a far away quiet beach. Now? I just want to go somewhere to whale watch and enjoy nature.

  5. I’m not fond of cold weather, but I’d be willing to head north to see the Northern Lights.

  6. Robin Rue (@massholemommy) says:

    Paris. I have always wanted to go to Paris – and someday I will.

  7. I love Europe. I’m hoping my next trip will be continuing in Italy – Maybe Puglia, Sicily and Sardinia and then down to Dubrovnik and Malta. Or France, or the Netherlands, Great Britain or back to Spain and Portugal. In other words, any where in Europe. I have a thing for medieval stuff.

    I like the tropics too but mosquitoes like me too much.

  8. Oh, the places I want to go! I want to do a Christmas market river cruise, I want to do a luxury train ride, I want to go back to Africa …

  9. If money were no object, it’s not a destination I would choose, but rather a specific mode of travel: private luxury jet with all the amenities!

  10. I would take a month and travel through Ireland and London and of course Paris! That would just be to start I have a list!

  11. Liz Mays says:

    I would really love to visit New Zealand at some point. I also have yet to see Alaska and Hawaii so I need to do that too!

  12. Tammy says:

    If money were no object I’d probably want to go to Italy or I’ve also dreamed of a Meditteranean cruise.

  13. I would spend a year traveling around the world. I’d start in Europe and combine all the things you show above: safari, diving, museums, culture, scenery, history, animals…..

  14. Sheryl says:

    If I had to pick just one – and that’s tough! – I’d say an African Safari, for sure.

  15. Helene Cohen Bludman says:

    If I could afford it, and if I had more stamina, I would love to go on a safari. That has always been a dream of mine.

  16. I have always wanted to visit Israel and Greece. My dream trip would take me to both. What fun to just think about how fabulous that trip would be:)

  17. Jay Lickus says:

    I would travel the world in search of the 50 (or more) strangest natural places.

  18. Jennifer says:

    I think a multiple week trip on the Orient Express. I love train travel but haven’t been on that one.

  19. Diane says:

    Ooo! That’s a toughie. There are so many intriguing places in this world of ours! I think I would opt for the green spaces and blue skies of Switzerland. With a lovely little side trip through Germany and Austria. Mmmmmm . . . .

  20. I’ve actually traveled quite a bit, but there’s always more places to want to see. I think my #1 dream at this point is the Greek Isles.

  21. My father passes away while I was researching his family tree. We were thrilled to discover that his side of the family comes from Scotland. I dream of being able to go there. It was the trip I never got to take with Dad.

  22. Heather says:

    Well geez if money and time were’nt an issue, I would visit every state and as many countries as I can. I’d love to go to Hawaii, but I’d also love to visit friends where they live.

  23. bonnie phelps says:

    So many places on my bucket list but I’d love to do some research on my German immigrant ancestors. First stop would be New Jersey and then on to Germany.

  24. Britney says:

    I definitely would love a tropical getaway! But our family does love Disneyland, so I think we would take that 🙂

  25. Carolann says:

    I think I’d like to go to Hawaii with the hubby. Yeah, that sounds nice…or Vegas…yeah…that sounds nice too…or Alaska…yes..I can do Alaska. 🙂

  26. Annette says:

    My dream vacation would be in Italy, visiting lots of restaurants and bakeries.

  27. Kathie Gorman says:

    My husband and I would take a river cruise down the Rhine River in Germany.

  28. so many dream destinations, Italy, Barcelona, Paris, Portugal, Greece OMG huge list!

  29. I’ve always wanted to go to Iceland. Not exactly sure what attracts me to that place. It just intrigues me.

  30. So many places I want to go. Hawaii. New York. China. Have suitcase and will travel.

  31. Lisa Rios says:

    I love visiting different countries with my hubby. If time and money were no matter, I wish to travel throughout the world & enjoy the beauty of nature.

  32. So hard to choose … but lately I have been dreaming of my family spending a month together in a villa in Spain or Tuscany or Greece…
