FFfAW-Dream Vacation

My dream had always been to go to Holland. Why Holland? I don't know why except that it had always intrigued me.

Finally, I was able to go to Holland and I was mesmerized by the old windmills and beautiful flowers that grow on acres and acres of land.

The people there were friendly and welcoming.

I didn't want to leave. I wanted to stay there forever and live among all it's beauty.

But, I had to go home and now all I have of Holland are memories and pictures.

Now my dream is to go to beautiful Australia.

  1. Coming back to reality after a wonderful holiday is always a downer – best to plan the next one straightaway πŸ™‚ I would love to visit Australia one day too, and I’ve only seen Holland from a coach as we drove through it!

  2. Sounds like someone who got the “travel bug.” Once you go to one foreign land and realize how exciting and wonderful it can be, you want to travel even more. I can totally relate to this story. Good one!

  3. It is important to read, as the freedom to travel is often beyond our means. Reading life as seen by those who post on this and other sites helps me to travel in my mind.

  4. Talk about Serendipity, I am reading Bill Bryson’s Down Under nowadays. And this character sounds like my wife. We come back from one vacation, and she’s already planned the next three πŸ™‚

  5. Ohhh Holland…I bet that is beautiful!! Hey you can come with me when I go to Australia…that’s always been my dream spot and now that we have friends there…we can make it happen! Good evening PJ!! I hope your day was spectacular and that the little critters are doing great!! ((HUGS!!)) xoxo πŸ™‚

  6. I think Holland would be a wonderful place to visit. The tulips would be beautiful.
    Yes, coming home can be a let down. Vacations are always fun and restful. I think Australia
    is another place that would be interesting. Aahhh … you’ve left me with places I’d like to travel
    today. Nicely written, PJ. Sadly, I’m off to the food market.
    Issy 😎

  7. I’d like to see Australia myself, but Wallie is a homebody. The wallabies scare him, too! This is a nice, vivid story from the perspective of an adventurous mind. πŸ™‚

I would love to read your thoughts...
