Dream Vacation

This week's EtsyBloggers blog carnival about vacation, the dream getaway.

I need a vacation. Badly lol. I don't know what my dream getaway would be - sleep, food I don't have to cook myself but that isn't microwavable either, cultural stimulation, beautiful nature, architecture, museums - I don't know, anything but work lol

I've very much enjoyed Foxwoods, the casino resort complex on the Mashantucket Reservation in Connecticut. It suits our late night schedule, and 24 hours a day there's something going on. And it's weather-independent. Wonderful food, free music, lots of slots and lights and sounds...wonderful hotel rooms (we stayed at the Pequot Tower). Very pleasurable getaway.

However, I've always wanted to visit Paris, as well as other parts of Europe. The castles of Ireland would be an interesting trip.

I also have Las Vegas on my list of places to visit. And I'd love to go to New Orleans again. We're hoping to travel there for Jazzfest next Spring, my boyfriend's parents live just outside the city, so it'd be a family and fun trip in one. And I really want to go back to New York as I miss the city tremendously.

There are just so many amazing places in the world I haven't seen yet, and great places I'd love to see again, that I can't really pinpoint a dream vacation - but I'd like anything at the moment :)

As you mentioned gambling towns are open round the clock so there is always something. In Las Vegas we like to stay at the Gold Nugget on Fremont Street rather than in a place on the Strip.
