Wow! Cuba? Have a great time, Margaret! I'm actually 1/4 Cuban, but I've never been. Of course, I haven't been to Italy, Ireland or Lithuania either!

Believe it or not, I love going to Pennsylvania with my hubby. I have such great memories of trips we took there together and then with the kids. We are actually going to Hershey Park and the surrounding area for our 25th Anniversary in May. I know ~ I'm such a world traveler! ; )

Margaret said...

Jake said...

Have a super time! My sister just got back and loved Havana! On our bucket list, maybe next February!

Hi Margaret...
Safe travels, my friend.

My favorite holiday vacation spot is Grand Cayman, British West Indies (nestled right in Cuba's crescent). We've traveled there at least five times, including our honeymoon. It's a beautiful, restful place and I glaze over every time I think about it.

Looking forward to your return.
xoxo

I feel like a little child waiting for you to get back home with a surprise!!

Hope your have a wonderful time.

I very seldom leave home, I'm a homebody, but I went to the Kenai Peninsula in Alaska last summer and had the most wonderful time I could ever hope for. My youngest daughter and her husband live there and I they were so wonderful.

Have a wonderful time and I hope you get time for some rest and relaxation and a little bit of stitching too.
My favourite holiday destination, I think would have to have been Paris.

Enjoy your holiday and the wedding.

Hello dear Margaret, congratulations with the marriage of your daughter. I hope you have an unforgettable time in Cuba.
I don't go often on vacation, but if we go, we celebrate it in Holland, mostly in Drenthe, we love the countryside so much. But if our lovely old Dog Roxy is gone, we will celebrate more vacations.
Have a wonderfull week.
Warmly greeting and hugs, Mea

Hi Margaret,
I am so excited for you! I hope that you have a wonderful time! What a great place for a wedding.
Hummm, let's see...a favorite vaca spot...I don't get away much, but I would have to say somewhere in the mountains with our camp trailer. I have a hard time leaving home, so I like it when we can take our second home with us so we can take Landon.
I loved all your beautiful gifts that you got in your previous post.
hugs

Looks like a lot of fun that trip to Cuba! Have fun and romance, aaahhhhh a marriage! Mmm I cannot figure out what my favorite vacation spot is. France always made me happy, but you know what? The best part of a vacation is coming home!

peggy aplSEEDS said...

have a great trip! i love to travel and one of the most fascinating places i have been to is Cappadoccia in Turkey. but if i were to choose a nice restful place for vacation, it would have to be in the beach of Punta Fuego, Batangas right here in the Philippines.

BellaRosa said...

Margaret amor, I hope you are having an amazing time in Cuba for your daughters wedding :) Take lots of pictures, relax and enjoy the sunshine :) I think my favorite place to vacation would be the Sierra's in Northern Ca. We used to go there every year with my dad and mama, it is soo beautiful up there and we would stop in different small towns along the way to our favorite destination...course we are such hardcore campers...we stayed in our trailor that slept 10 :)ahhh but those were the days :) My stars...actually, I truly do miss them! Have a beautiful weekend! Besos, Rose

So here are a few... #1 Central California - 7 Gables Inn in Pacific Grove (near Monterey) #2 Grove Park Inn in Ashville North Carolina #3 Cruising down a major river in Europe & seeing each new port every day, #4 Oregon & Washington State along the coast (I haven't seen much but, have a dream to take our RV we are planning on buying & travel the whole way up).
