I am a lover of travel and a huge advocate for people having dreams and seeking to fulfill their dreams.

That being said, I am curious to know where my fellow Penny Hoarders would travel if money wasn't something you had to worry about.

What would be your dream trip/vacation and why would you choose that specifically?

Time to do a little dreaming!

I would take my family on a disneyworld/cruise vacation just like my husband and I took for our honeymoon 20 yeaqrs ago in October of this yearl.

First, congratulations @Giny. May life bless you so you can do an anniversary trip down memory lane. I have never been out of Africa, you got me thinking... 

For me I dreamed as a little kid to go to Paris or Hawaii.
But now with our health I don't think this is possible.

So I say any where in the USA just hubby and I. We have
never taken a vacations alone in our 36 years we been married.

The other one would be to take all our kids and grand kids
to Disney world.

For me it would be Stone Hedge @Moore Income. Would love to just sit there and listen to the silence. Always been intrigued by Stone Hedge.

Stonehenge is a place I've visited a few times over the years. We'll be back in May. It is a special place. If anyone wants to go there, the best way is to arrange a Stonehenge Stone Circle Access pass. It allows you to walk among the stones. Otherwise you would be outside the roped off area. Highly recommended.

I've visited Stonehenge a couple times and will be there in May. It is a very other worldly place. If you do go I recommend arranging a visit through the Stonehenge Stone Circle Access program. You will be able to walk around inside the stones. Otherwise, you will have to stay outside the roped off area.

I have always wanted to see the Northern Lights......and I don't particularly care where I go to see them, tho Norway or Finland would be nice! I spent some summer vacations in Minnesota, and family would talk about the lights......a winter phenomenon.....and I remember how in awe I was of the photos and newscasts I saw back then.

@mintjulep that is also one of my wife's dreams. I know getting up into Canada and Alaska you can see them. We want to go to Iceland as we have heard you can get some amazing views of them there.

On rare occasion, the lights have been spotted here in Fargo, ND where I live but it is not that likely and not as nice as seeing it out in the open would be.

@Moore Income (aha!......is this how you link?)  If you make that trip to Iceland, please share travel tips.  I've spent a few minutes researching trips to see the Northern Lights and because they are so unpredictable, I pushed the thought way down the bucket list, even tho as a travel destination, it'd be at the top. According to family the lights are very rare in MN, as well.

GINY that sounds wonderful. When we was younger we wanted
to take our kids there.

DEON CHRISTIE does sound very interesting. Just looked it up
you like old things in history?

That I do @Bonnie Squires, especially Mythology. There are many great stories about the Druids and Stone Hedge. It is believed that the Druids (Celtic Pagans) built Stone Hedge as a place of worship.

Disney World sounds great @Bonnie Squires. Although it will be quite a journey from South Africa. Perhaps one day...

An other worldly place, and rightly so @friardave. It is believed the Druids (Celtic Pagans) built Stone Hedge as a place of Worship. Somewhere around the 17th Century. There is No Way I stay outside the roped area and will gladly pay the 45 quid...  But how many people on average usually go for the Stonehenge Stone Circle Access program? Or how many are allowed at one time?

Excellent suggestion @mintjulep. Although I would very much like to also see the Northern lights. I'm rather deterred by the drop in temperature. I get cold easily, what can I say?

It must be freezing during winter @Moore Income. Although I would also love to see the Northern Lights. I'm really not too fond of cold.

@friardave I noticed that. That's alright, it happens from time to time for me too.

If you click on the "Take Action" button on the bottom right of one of your posts, you can actually delete one of the duplicate comments if you want. Hope this helps.

Great tip @Moore Income. I actually also done that a few times. And I do prefer commenting in "Reply with Quote".

I would travel the world to better understand humankind 

I think that may take quite a bit of time @jcclark1976. Will we ever be able to understand a species that destroy the very place they need to exist?

Yes - understanding will take time and yes, I believe we can understand a species that chooses to destroy the place it needs to exist. It's possible I may not like the information I learn but it still would let me better understand humankind.

So many places I'd love to see, I guess all of Europe for a start, and Stonehenge would be included, as my ancestors were mainly British on both sides of my family. Would love mostly to see British Isles and Germany. For a USA bound trip Disney World with my now grown up children would be awesome too. Crazy, but when you've never been somewhere it has an appeal at any age. I'd love to visit all my relatives first who live quite far from us so that is important. I'd love to see my friends in Kiwi land and Australia too but probably can't happen. Don't know what I'd do with no internet. It is my travel log for sure.

I have been fortunate enough to be in the travel industry within the luxury market and experience many parts of the world in luxury without having to pay a dime. I truly believe it is the best education and I have  given a taste of travel to my children as well. Here is to name a few, Bhutan, Prague, Croatia, Paris, Argentina, St Petersburg, India, West Coast of Australia (The Kimberly) on a yacht. (Maldives,  Palau for diving).  So many beautiful places in the world and one life time is not enough but this is a good start!

Bonnie, do local radio stations & TV stations in your area have contests for little getaways in your area?  Entering those contests give you a chance to win a very inexpensive trip close to home (sometime far from home too!).  I say inexpensive & not free because you usually have to pay for gas, food & some other incidentals.  But I have stayed in hotels around my city & had wonderful little staycations that gives us a new experience.

I have been fortunate enough to have traveled to Europe a few time, Japan once & around a good chunk of Canada & the US.  I want to see the whole world!

On the top of my current bucketlist is:  Iceland, Maldives & Bora Bora.  My kids really want to visit all the Hawaiian Islands, Disneyland & Legoland & a Disney Cruise.

So far for this summer, we have some great campsites at a few lakes in British Columbia booked.  We might get to Washington state too.

When we were there, this time, there were about 20 other folks. We all tried staying out of each others way. Not like our first time there. It was us and 3 other people.

Regardless, if you can go, I highly recommend it.

i would travel to ENTALULA ISLAND PHILIPPINES,,i never been there but i like the solemly private beach sorounded by litttle forest..the shore that always invites any human body to dip in...and feel the breeze...and peaceful environment like being away from nagging bosses ....be alone..find peace with privacy..and i could swim in my own two piece swim wear with out people critisizing(i was supposed to feel sorry i lived in a country like swimin be like in a full covered body) ..feel every single moment..to live free even just for a while..oh men...then i wake up and realized breaktime is finnaly over and time to work again,,,
