I was having a conversation with an elderly lady in the waiting room and she told me a story about her great grandson. She thought perhaps he may be a bit too old to still be breastfeeding. She was traveling to Vermont with him and his family when he started to throw a tantrum. He stood in his seat, pounding his fists on the headrest while chanting at the top of lungs,

800px-skyscrapers_of_shinjuku_2009_januaryWith this great deal to Tokyo there is so much to dream about – from Gwen Stefani’s complete enthrallment of the Harajuku district (fashion mecca for trendsetters and icons alike), to pushing through hundreds of people at the Shibuya Crossing (why that sounds like a great adventure is beyond me – but there is something intrinsically fascinating about the thought of it – probably because it’s in the movies – LOL!). Oooooh, and to see Mt. Fuji would be breathtaking! Between the ancient and the modern aspects of the city, as well as the people and sights to take in, I will definitely keep dreaming about making it to Tokyo one day!

654px-cutest_koalaWe dreamt of Italy last week, and this week, we’re dreaming about Australia! A good friend of the family, who is a native Aussie, was able to whisk up this fantastic deal and take her husband back home this coming September. Oh, how I would love to grab my husband and steal away to Australia! I have always wanted to go “down under” and catch a performance at the Sydney Opera House, Surf the Indian Ocean, snorkel the Great Barrier Reef and chase some ‘Roos in the Outback. After watching Baz Luhrmann’s epic Australia, I really felt the pull to go… and at this price, it’s more about the lack of time than perhaps the money! If you’re able to take advantage of this great price, please share pictures of your epic adventure with us…you lucky Koala!

The Colosseum in Rome

The Colosseum in Rome

I send my family and close friends a weekly “Keep Dreaming” email of all the great places with the lowest fares that Travel Zoo finds for the week. We’re all Euro-trippers, so I keep my focus there. Life is so busy and money so tight these days, making it difficult to travel to these wonderful getaway spots…as much as we would love to go! So in lieu of actual travel (or wish-you-were-here postcards from these locales!), I send emails highlighting all the places we really want to see, but can’t quite visit…yet. If nothing else, it takes us off whatever it is occupying our minds, and transports us to another country for a few moments…before flashing back to reality! Even though it’s such a tease, we all seem to really enjoy the momentary “dream” of going! This morning’s email:

Your weekly Keep Dreaming Email has arrived!
This week’s destinations: Italy
$387 & up — Fly to Italy in Spring (Roundtrip) incl. Taxes

As always, keep dreaming….we will get there one day!

I’d love to hear about the favorite places our readers have visited, as well as their dream destinations…and please also share your favorite online travel sites!
