Around about January, people start dreaming of a warm vacation. I'm usually not one of them. For the most part, I'm pretty happy living here in Western New York.
Of course, my favorite place to vacation is England. Since I no longer fly, that makes the UK as a destination rater a difficult place to go.
So I'm stuck in the Northern Hemisphere. Where would I like to go? (And preferably in warm weather -- because while I fear crashing in a plane, I also fear crashing in a car -- and have done so in winter. NEVER AGAIN!)
How about Mackinack Island in Michigan? Ever since I saw the film Somewhere in Time, I've wanted to go to the Grand Hotel. Sadly, one-night's stay is far above my budget, but a girl can dream, can't she?
Biltmore, in Ashville, NC. Nuff said.
Greenfield Village and the Henry Ford Museum. Okay, truth be told, I've already been there, but I remember the museum far better than I do Greenfield Village. I must've missed the Cottswold Cottage, but then we may have only spent a morning there, and you need far more than that.
What are you vacation plans for this summer?
