    I still vividly remember our vacation that we took in the Black Hills of South Dakota. Feeding the wild burros was so neat!! It was soooo hot though and our car did not have air conditioning. (That was when A/C was a luxury.)

    We go to the Oregon Coast camping usually near Astoria, Cannon beach area. I love it. Sometimes it is rainy and windy but it doesn’t bother me and when it is sunny and beautiful, it is just that more enjoyable.

    My favourite and most memorable vacation has to be the one I took with my boyfriend then and now husband for the very first time. We went to Lanzarote in Canary Islands, we were so excited to go we didn’t read enough about it and it turned out to be very touristy and volcanic island with not so good beaches haha Even though we manages to have a great time and enjoy it to the full, that’s when we realised we want to spend our lives together because no matter where we will be as long as it’s together it will be amazing! 🙂

    My most memorable vacation was traveling to Italy with one of my daughters and meeting my son who was studying there. We visited many cities and ate and walked through as much as we could.

    We all used to go to this special spot up North where you could run down this big hill and jump in the water. I don’t even remember where it is located anymore. We would even roll down in the middle of an Inner tube and laugh!!! We would camp out over night, listen to music and play cards. It was so windy one day that the wind took the whip cream that was shooting out the end of a can and the wind took it and smashed it all into a friends face and shirt. Too funny!

    I have always loved the peacefulness of being by water. And our honeymoon to Mackinac Island was fantastic. Sail boating, carriage rides, and biking. Nature is in awe there. So thankful for our perfect weather too.

    My most memorable vacation was when our family of 4 went on a road trip to Bamff and Jasper in Canada- amazing beauty, lots of fun. 17 days sleeping in a van together was also quite memorable, if you know what I mean!

    The most memorable vacation was a trip to Rome and touring the islands in the Mediterranean… It was a trip of a lifetime because we were able to share it with our children and our grand children. Even though this was 4 years ago, all are still “talking” about all we saw and learned!!! A fun side note, our grandson came home and did a school paper comparing the Coliseum to the Dallas Cowboy Stadium…(he made an A) That is what traveling can do….

    I was fortunate many yeas ago to make several different backpacking trips to various spots in the Colorado Rockies. There are such amazing vistas when you can get off the beaten path and into the wilderness. Some fond memories there for me still!

    One of my most memorable vacations was when we got in the car at 3:00 to drive to my Aunt & uncles farm up north We arrived for breakfast. When we got there my aunt was taking home made bread out of the oven. The rest of the week was milking cows, getting eggs from the hens and riding the tractor out to pick peaches. When I think of it I can even smell the crisp scents in the air of the farm

    My most memorable vacation was a trip to Minnesota. We stayed in a great cabin on the lake. We went fishing, boating, swimming, saw a bear and just had loads of fun with the family.

    I’ve had a number of great vacations but some of my fondest memories are of the camping trips we took as a family when I was young. We would go to the Adirondacks and pitch a tent next to a lake. Days were spent swimming or visiting sites such as Frontier Town. Those summers were idyllic except for the summer when all it did was rain. I remember our large family gathered in the station wagon with the rain pounding down while Mom read stories and Dad led us in signing old songs. Funny how even a rainy day can produce a fond memory.

    My most memorable vacations were the ones when I stayed with my grandparents. Cycling through the fields, helping grandma in the kitchen and I still remember the room and sheets on the bed. Beautiful memories…

    My most memorable vacation was 9 days in Waikiki, HI. I loved the flowers, sun, beach and the warm temperatures. I think I could just live there.

    Our favorite vacation was going to Hawaii and not being where all the tourist were but on the North Shore and had a glorious gorgeous time.

    My husband and I have gone to Hawaii and Mexico, but to date my most memorable is the last trip we took to New Orleans with our kids last Spring Break. My husband and I love NOLA – the food, the music, the history, the gardens, french quarter – it is not just all about Bourbon street. My kids have heard us talk about our numerous trips there and asked us over and over one day to take them – so we did and we had a blast! I loved being able to share in their first time experience and will always remember that!

    Before my son was born the most memorable vacation I had was as a small child where our family stayed in an “A” frame cabin off of a lake in Connecticut where we ate fresh lobster and had a real New England clam bake. The ants that crawled along the ceiling over our bunk beds were so huge I was too afraid to sleep! However, rowing around in a rowboat the next day in our bathing suits in the lake while it rained and seeing all the minnows below was such great fun! We also roasted marsh-mellows in an open fire inside the cabin and little bear cubs raided the trash cans outside after we went to bed, which also caused a lot of excitment. Betsy’s new Petite Places stamp and die set reminds me of that time. Oh how I wish I could own a real scotty camper! Can hardly wait to order this for the summer.

    How how fun! My mom took us kids there one day and I’ll never forget the fudge!!! I ran into a few people at the grocery store a few weeks ago, who by a strange coincidence had all been there and remembered the fudge too!

    My favorite vacation memory is the year my parents took 4 of us kids to Traverse City, Michigan to spend the week in a rented cabin on a beautiful lake. The problem was that it was the coldest July on record! What made it memorable is the day I pulled my toddler brother from the lake where he had wondered unto to dock and fallen in. I must have been 8 years old at the time. Boy was it freezing in that water! I was blessed to be at the right place in the right time. What a vacation it was!

    My most memorable trip was to Alice Springs when I was 16. I had started a part time job after school and was able to save to go stay with my cousin and family. My first time on a plane, seeing Ayres Rock and all Alice Springs has to offer, just my cousin and me. I felt so grown up.
