As April approaches, a lot of you have a spring break coming up. When I was in school, some of my friends would be going to Disney World, or the Caribbean, or some cool exotic location. I, on the other hand, would usually be going. . . to my grandma’s. She lived down the street would babysit me while my mom had to work.
But a girl can dream right? So when I was actually old enough to do some traveling on my own – I visited such places as the rain forests of Costa Rica, the ruins of Greece, the jungles of Vietnam, and the pyramids of Egypt. (A lot of this was helped along by a college program called Semester at Sea by the University of Pittsburgh!) Check out the picture of me in Egypt with the pyramids.
I’d love to take my next vacation somewhere where I could veg out in the sun, and people-watch. Maybe a tropical island where all the movie stars go, like St. Lucia. Or maybe France. I’ve never been to Paris, and would love to sit in one of those little sidewalk cafés drinking a fancy cocoa, looking sophisticated, and saying, “Bonjour monsieur.” I’m not sure if I’ll ever get there, but like I said, a girl can dream, right?
What about you? What is your dream vacation? Let us know in the Comments!
