Show Us Your Life: Favorite Vacation Spots

It's Friday and it's time for "Show Us Your Life" hosted by Kelly's Korner! This week's feature: Favorite Vacation Spots.

1. My favorite city in the entire world is Rome, Italy. I did a study abroad in college and I fell in love with Rome. I've been there four times and I just can't get enough of the history, food and culture. I am hoping to take Fred one day since he's never been.

2. Hilton Waikoloa Village on the Hawaiian island, Kona. This resort was awesome. You either take a boat, a tram or walk a mile to your room. The ocean views were spectacular and it was a blast!

3. Hilton Rose Hall (Montego Bay, Jamacia): This was my first all-inclusive resort and I absolutely loved it! The food was great. The people were awesome (especially Cool Billy).

This waterfall was used in the James Bond film "Live and Let Die"

The house behind us is Johnny Cash's house

4. Palm Springs, California: When I was growing up, my family and I would go to Palm Springs for Spring Break. I love the desert with the view of the mountains.

5. Zermatt, Switzerland: This is one of the most interesting places I have ever been. There aren't any cars. The only vehicles are those little electric cars to take you to and from.
The Matterhorn

We love to travel. Fred and I are hoping to take a vacation later this year. Fred's top five would be a lot different from mine. He's been to Bora Bora and several other exotic places. Happy Friday, everyone!

I was in Switzerland for Christmas, but was in Zurich and Interlaken. I LOVED it, and want to go back to Zurmatt and see more!

Add Australia to your list - AMAZING beaches!

I'm right there with you when it comes to Rome - it's such a beautiful city - but lately I've been into more exotic trips to places like Thailand and Egypt. It's super interesting visiting places people don't normally consider vacation spots!
