fleming_beach_mauiThe tide is High and [we] are holding on…” …to our dreams of a vacation on Maui!

Would you believe that my husband and I have lived in California our ENTIRE lives and have NEVER been to Maui, let alone Hawaii?!? We are one direct flight away, and we just can’t seem to get there (for those of you readers on the East Coast, what you think of me not getting to Hawaii is probably what I think of you not getting to London!) 😉 Don’t get me wrong, I definitely want to go. I mean, what’s not to like about Hawaii?? It has everything we have ever dreamed about for a vacation. Fantastic beaches, warm, crystal clear seas, rainforests, fabulous hotels, and great food (you know we at le•top are keen on great food…even if I can’t some of us don’t cook!). At this price, I am considering ditching our plans for a vacation (no, it’s not a dream…) to Canada and scooping up this great deal instead. Oh, to laze on the beach, with a mai tai in one hand, a good book in the other, “working” on my golden tan…okay, okay…with my fair complexion I would just burn…but if I’m going to dream, I might as well go all out!

chiantiYou have no idea how hard it was to pick this week’s “Dream”! With choices from Rio to Prague, I definitely had a hard time figuring out what would be the most ideal dream destination. With the rainy weather we are having here in the San Francisco Bay Area…I was enticed to select a rich, sunny, color-laden locale. All doubts were cast aside: Tuscany! This region of Italy is our dream destination for the week. Whether you pick the 6 night package (includes air), or the fantastic deal on tickets to Rome (then, of course, renting a little Fiat for the drive to Tuscany is a must!) you are sure to be in seventh heaven, or shall we say, Settimo Cielo! I’m thinking Italian villa, locally-made sausage and cheese, a great bottle of chianti, a view of a vineyard… mix in some good company and the setting sun, and it’s nothing short of utter perfection! Here’s hoping for spring, and one day soon, a trip to Italy! Buon Giorno!

lion-londonThis week we are dreaming about London, my favorite place in the world…so far! My best friend and I were lucky enough to visit in 2005. We still talk about it and wonder when we are going back! London is a hip city, but steeped in history. Some of my favorite sights of London are: Picadilly Circus where I dream of singing My Fair Lady tunes as I pick up some fresh flowers from the market, the British Museum where they house the largest collection of mummies outside of Cairo, Egypt (and where you are “not to climb on the Lions!” — oops!), the Tower of London where past kings and queens were imprisoned and/or awaiting death and where the Beefeaters still stand guard, then there’s Westminster Abby, Big Ben, the House of Parliament, and last but not least, the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, always an extraordinary event! There is so much to see and do in London (there never seems to be enough time), not to mention that it’s only a train ride away to France and the rest of Europe! This would be the perfect time to go (if you can stand the rain).

British Airways cut spring fares to Europe (from San Francisco) to $297-$373 each way.
That includes 2 FREE NIGHTS* at a 3- or 4-star hotel.
